Excerpt: Since the first ATV title hit the PSP after launch, we've been able to count on good, stylish graphics. ATV Offroad Fury Pro carries its weight among the field of competitors and does a few things really well visually. The track designs are awesome so if a few aren't full of detail or especially interesting, you'll find forgiveness. I really did wish for more in the area of shortcuts or long, free-roaming tracks, but that really isn't the style.
Excerpt: ATV Offroad Fury Pro may as well drop the “ATV” from its name. While ATVs are still the stars of the show, other offroad vehicles make their appearance in the series. We’re not just talking dirt bikes here, but snowmobiles and even trucks. Throw in a good number of race modes, tracks, and even a track editor and some mini games and you have a game that packs in a lot of offroad racing for the times when you need to take your gaming on the road.
Excerpt: , count yourself as one of the lucky ones - not so much because it was a bad game (though it was an absolute mess, yet Sony is selling the game bundled with some PSPs), but because you'll never have to wash the taste of a bad portable ATV racer out of your mouth. If you did, congratulations, 's tracks are longer, they're more varied, there's more of them, there are more vehicles, the control is tighter, the visuals are much improved.
Summary: ATV Offroad Fury Pro won't win any awards for graphics or game play, but it does feature an insane amount of levels, modes, mini-games and multiplayer fun. If you're the type of gamer who likes to do and see everything, then this game will keep you glued to your PSP for months to come! This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on. However, that does not always apply to classic/retro games.
Excerpt: I've always been a fan of racing games. I suppose that started back in the SNES days with games like Super Mario Kart, which led to watercraft racing with the release of Wave Race 64, Mario Kart 64 and Cruisin' USA. More recently I have been most impressed with the Burnout and Need for Speed franchises, as well as a brief stint with Midnight Club 2 and some Dreamcast racers like Metropolis Street Racing and Sega Rally.
Conclusion: The game’s soundtrack features a mix of hard rock and upbeat hip-hop tracks. While it’ll be up to the player to decide whether or not this type of music suits the game, one thing everyone will agree on is the vehicle noises. The lighter vehicles sound too light, with most of the engine noises coming off like a buzz from a robot. The larger vehicles however sound exactly like what you’d expect to hear if you saw a large truck fly off a jump and slam down into mud.
