Summary: MX vs. ATV Untamed features bigger, more populated outdoor open-world environments, an X-cross career mode showcasing all eight vehicles and the all-new EnduroCross mode pitting gamers against logs, rocks, mud-pits and more, and illustrating the full potential of the game's Rhythm Racing physics engine.
Excerpt: MX vs. ATV Untamed is to Motorstorm as Forza is to Burnout. While similar in that they’re both off-road racing games, the former is much more based in reality, and is composed of venues you’d expect to see at a rally or on ESPN. Given the previous off-road games by Rainbow Studios and THQ, that’s a little surprising. What isn’t surprising, though, is that their big effort to enter realism isn’t quite what they looked to be going for.
Summary: With high-profile games such as MotorStorm and Dirt already released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, the bar has been raised for recent off-road racing games. Rainbow Studios' MX vs. ATV Untamed feels a lot like previous entries in the MX vs. ATV series and, as a result, doesn't meet that same standard of quality. Nevertheless, despite its problems, Untamed manages to be a worthwhile and jam-packed off-road racing experience. As with previous versions of the MX vs.
Pros: Fun variety of vehicles, Outdoor courses are by and large very fun, Lots to keep you busy in the game
Cons: Not a great-looking game, especially on the PS3, Landing jumps can be unforgiving, Several events are more plodding than fun, Freestyle events don't feel like they fit, Lack of rumble in an off-road game is a big bummer
Excerpt: That means that if you hate the MX moments, you'll likely despise the frequent stretches where you're forced to drive a motorcycle. The worst news of all, though, is that you have to clear each track twice consecutively within a series of events. Once you finish a race the first time, regardless of your position, you have to turn around and immediately play through it again (or exit out and lose your progress).
Excerpt: In the past, Rainbow Studios has brought us fantastic titles such as the first two ATV Off-Road Fury games, for the PlayStation 2, in addition to the very awesome SplashDown games, and the MotorCross games. Now, Rainbow Studios is working on games like Disney's Cars and the MX vs ATV series. Now, you'd imagine with so much dirt racing in their bloodline, that a great next-generation motorcross game from Rainbow Studios is a shoe-in, right? Well, I wish it was.
Summary: Dopo sette lunghissimi anni la serie di Mx Vs Atv avrebbe bisogno di nuovo terreno per poter crescere forte e rigogliosa, ma questo tentativo è andato perduto nella mediocrità e a causa della poca cura per i dettagli. Un gameplay seppur semplice e completo risulta stantio e per nulla innovato rispetto al passato.
