Motocross Madness is a motocross racing computer game that was developed by Rainbow Studios[1] and published by Microsoft Games.[2] It was released on August 14, 1998. A sequel, Motocross Madness 2, was released in 2000. In 2013, a sequel for Xbox 360 was released, simply titled Motocross Madness. In the game, one can earn money by utilizing "career mode", but play for fun in Baja, Stunts, Enduro, Supercross, and National levels as well.

The game is known for its realism, including terrain, audio, and "bone-chilling" motorcycle wrecks. If the player is in Stunt mode, goes out of bounds, and gets on a large cliff, an "invisible slingshot" will cause the player and the bike fly across while a funny sound plays until both objects will hit the ground.[3]
