Excerpt: If SSX and ATV Offroad Fury fell in love, got married, and had a child, their offspring would be Disney Interactive and Black Rock Studio's PURE . This off-road, all-terrain vehicle racer mixes high-speed racing with over-the-top stunts.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is When I had the chance to try out the eagerly awaited MotorStorm 2 on the PS3, I had a ridiculous amount of fun with it, and thought that I would probably never get to play a racing game that was so enjoyable.
Excerpt: When Disney released Pure, I didn't know exactly what to expect. I heard of the title but didn't really have a true interest in it. Also when I found out it was an off road racer, I had my doubts, after the tedium that was Motorstorm.
Summary: Growing up in the small town Midwest, I spent quite a bit of time with ATVs, both for recreation and for work. From an early age, several safety pointers were repeatedly drilled into my head, making me a responsible operator.
Excerpt: When I first laid my eyes on Pure, I was a bit skeptical. I thought the idea of newly formed Disney Interactive making a hit was rather slim. Then we come to find out that the developer behind Pure would be the very same developer behind MotoGP (Xbox version) and ATV Offroad Fury 3..
Excerpt: Previously known as Climax Studios, Blackrock Studios gave rise to some memorable dirt-laced titles, including installments of the popular ATV Offroad Fury series for the PlayStation 2. Needless to say, these guys know dirt bikes.
Conclusion: Pure was a really big surprise. At first we were blown away by how well everything came together from a brand new studio. We then learnt who Black Rock Studio was, everything started to make sense. If you enjoy fast racers, insane action and wild stunts, Pure will not disappoint.
