Excerpt: By Brad Russell Pure for the PC blends SSX style trickery with ATVs, and the result is pure fun. Fans of Burnout will feel at home with a game that falls on the more unrealistic end of racing, but it's not Mario Kart.

Excerpt: We had great plans for this summer in the VideoGamer.com office. We'd already agreed that we'd be stopping work to watch England games during Euro 2008, set up a makeshift bar, wear our England shirts and shout a lot - presumably at the ref.

Excerpt: Pure review Game Over Online - http://www.game-over.com The Good : Mud-in-the-treads adrenaline-fueled ATV racing with forgiving physics models. The Bad : You end up racing on the same set of perhaps a dozen tracks over and over again, with only small changes in the route.
Summary: While gaming innovation is what console hacks crave most, often the greatest joys are to be found in genre titles that know their place in the pantheon of gaming and do everything exceptionally well.

Excerpt: Kaspersky has recently updated its range of security software to include the new Kaspersky PURE, an all-singing, all-dancing suite that does far more than simply protect against and remove threats.

Pros: Impressive level of protection, additional tools genuinely useful, fairly light on resources
Cons: Security components can be awkward to configure, no online backup, expensive
