Summary: I will have to say as the other reviewers that this game is absolutely unplayable on PS3. Now PC is a different story, its a lot of fun, yet nothing to new. This has to be the worst ported game in the history of the PS3, the frame rate is so bad you get a headache from all the jagged movements. The graphics are so washed down it looks like a PS2 game. I'm not understanding why they took a mediocre game and put it on PS3 to make it an Atrocity.
Summary: I don't like giving out too many 1 star reviews, most really bad games deserve 2 stars, and I almost did, so we will call it a 1.5 star review. When I first saw this game I thought hey that's almost like Downhill Domination from the ps2 days, mixed with Pure, Looks good. I played the first track in a GameStop, it was fun. Bought the game played a bit and started shaking my head.
Summary: I bought this game without any reviews - what a mistake that was...unrealistic physics, no crash sequence ,annoying re-spawn splash screen, game play is tedious at best and stays that way, dated motor sounds(resembles a child blowing raspberrys - seriously!! they couldn't do better?? really??) I will say the graphics are outstanding though - but that's not enough to redeem it. I bought it for Christmas and I'm already getting rid of it.
Summary: TERRIBLE Stay away from this game no matter how cheap it gets. It try's too hard and fails miserably. Visuals are poor, collision detection is hit and miss and you can only just see where you are going, on many occasions you will have to reset after a turn or jump as you cannot see where the track is. The music is ok if you like heavy metal, but why they chose this music is beyond me. Strong advise.... In a word PURE stick with the game PURE.
Conclusion: this game starts off ok but you soon end up doing the same thing on the same quad and bike yeah one quad and bike on the same tracks over and over again after a hour or so your left wishing you never got it if your into off road games id say go for pure or motorstorm there much more enjoyable
