Excerpt: Category: Console Genera: ESRB Rating: E for Everyone Developer: Rainbow Studios Players: 1-4 Okay, I?m a little late with this review. As you may know, ATV Offroad Fury came out on the PS2 way back in 2001, before spawning numerous sequels. I, however, just happened to pick up a used copy for about five bucks. So, was it worth the price of admission?
Excerpt: Producer: Sony Developer: Rainbow Studios ERSB: Everyone Players: 1-2 Memory Card: 332 KB Analog Control Digital Control Vibration Multi-tap 1-4 players 989 Sports Da Introduction: The team that brought us Motocross Madness returns with a new title geared for fans of those controversial but undeniably exciting machines, called ATV's. The game features 11 different bikes and six different formats including Cross Country Enduro, Stadium Supercross, and Freestyle Stunt.
Excerpt: ATV Offroad Fury looks like the love-child of Rockstar's Smuggler's Run and Rainbow Studio's (the developer) Motocross Madness, with maybe a few paternity suits from other offroad racers and motocross games. Weighing in as PlayStation 2's latest offroad racer, Offroad Fury has the hills, valleys and huge levels I liked in Smuggler's Run, but while the cross-country smuggling objectives got a little repetitive, race fans will find all the depth they need in Offroad Fury...
Excerpt: Sony hasn't shown anything too impressive from its first party game development companies so ATV Offroad Fury is a pleasant surprise. Everything about this game screams greatness and as far as 4-player racing games go this is the cream of the crop.
Excerpt: Extreme sports games generally fall into two categories. They're either well received, such as Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, or they fail quite badly, like 3Xtreme. One series that has enjoyed critical acclaim is the Motocross Madness series of games that have been released on the PC. Published by Microsoft and developed by Rainbow Studios, the Motocross Madness series is arguably the only motocross game that really captures the spirit of the sport while, at the same time,...
Excerpt: ATV Offroad Fury puts you behind the wheel of an all terrain vehicle in diverse offroad racing environments from wide-open spaces to indoor arenas. ATV Offroad Fury features eleven ATV models from the top manufactures. The action can be intense at times while simultaneously maintaining a certain level of realism. This mix of arcade and simulation creates an off road gaming experience that is not to be missed.
Excerpt: Yet another racing has been added to the ever-growing PS2 library. At the moment with the release of ATV: Offroad Fury, a little over ten racing games have seen the light of day on the PS2, a console that already homes nearly 50 games, and is only 5 months old. As I recall, the only other ATV game that exists on a console today is ATV: Quad Power Racing for the PSOne.
Excerpt: Mit ATVs über Hügel zu rasen dürfte wohl eher ein Nischensport sein. Trotzdem hat sich Sony entschlossen, PS2-Besitzern eine virtuelle Möglichkeit zu geben, genau dies zu tun. Dass 'ATV Offroad' nichts für Weicheier ist, zeigt sich bereits im Intro, wo man mit Szenen aus echten ATV-Rennen und fetziger Rockmusik auf das Spiel eingestimmt wird. Nach dem Intro findet man sich dann im Hauptenü wieder.
Conclusion: Malgré quelques malheureux défauts presque pardonnables, ATV Offroad Fury reste sans doute l'un des titres les plus agréables à jouer en cette période. Sa simplicité d'accès lui permet de toucher un large publique, les qualités intrinsèques de son gameplay devraient plaire aussi bien aux hardcore-gamers qu'aux joueurs débutants.
