Excerpt: The graphics in ATV2 are very good. They\'re not the best, but they\'re definitely enough to be on a Gamecube. For example, sometimes a leg will *somehow* go into a solid wall, or a chunk of ice, but I guess you can\'t always have perfect graphics.
Excerpt: Blending graphics and gameplay has been an issue since day one in the video game industry. ATV Quad Power Racing 2 does a pretty good job by keeping up the speed of the game with graphics that may not be the best, but certainly no slouch either.
Excerpt: You know the drill. You race through several circuits, trying to finish in the top three in order to advance. There are multiple drivers to choose from, including the mandatory girl with oversized breasts and insufficient protective gear.
Summary: While it exhibits some strong characteristics of a great racing title, ATV Quad Power Racing 2 can't escape the limitations of its spotty stunt controls. Still, if you like off-road racing, you have no better alternatives on the GameCube.
Pros: A very well-planned and balanced gameplay experience requiring people to race smart, perform some stunts, and kick a rider or two out of the running, Quick and steady frame rate, Very little (as in no) competition in the arcade off-road racing genre on GCN makes it easier to overlook blemishes
Cons: The game relies heavily on stunts to keep pace in the races and the sloppy stunt controls can make this frustrating, Uninspiring graphics with occasionally muddy textures
Excerpt: Bien ancré dans le secteur des sports de l'extrême, Acclaim enchaîne les productions en alternant des tops et des flops. Pour le retour de ATV Quad Power Racing, on se situe dans le secteur médian. Ni un grand jeu, ni un navet, ATV est plutôt un jeu de plus parmi tous les autres du genre.
