Conclusion: Overall I find this game fun, if I am not playing the championship modes. The choice of mode of transports and if you find it impossible to do a backflip on an ATV or a MX you can also do them in other 4 wheeled vehicles. Out of 100 I give this game a 66.

Excerpt: I'm not usually a fan of racing games, on-road or off. It's not that I don't think they're fun, mind you, I just can't take the pressure. The clock, the other racers, the terrain… it all just boils down to just way too much going on at once. And nothing compares to my frustration at a computer-controlled car's last millisecond win; “Raining Blood” on Guitar Hero III has had me near the breaking point once or twice, but only a split second loss in a racing game...
Excerpt: Rainbow Studio's latest off-road epic screeches its way on the XBox 360 that combines a variety of off-road vehicles such as dirt bikes and ATV's (all terrain vehicles) in some of the most entertaining racing to have graced the high end consoles in a long time. Sure the PlayStation 3 has had MotorStorm but the XBox 360 has been missing the extreme sports racing genre and Rainbow Studios are hoping that this current hybrid incarnation of their series will fill the gap.
Excerpt: As a casual fan of motorcycle racing games since the original Excitebike on the NES, and someone who has enjoyed more recent fare like Excitebike 64 and ATV Off-Road Fury 4, I approached MX vs. ATV: Untamed optimistically, and hoped that it would supply a trick and race-filled romp with a variety of vehicles.
Excerpt: One thing I love about Untamed is out intense the racing can be - when the courses are jam-packed with racers, and you’ve got five drivers in a variety of different vehicles jockeying for position at 100+ MPH, things get chaotic and in a good way. Your adrenaline starts pumping, you start envisioning yourself at the front of the pack, and then you finally achieve the goal that seemed lofty just a few short seconds before.
Excerpt: It's been ten years and seven games now, and Rainbow Studios continues to refine their off-road racing formula. Their latest game, MX vs. ATV Untamed , puts together dirt bikes, four-wheeled ATVs, and big trucks into a stunt-filled, high-flying racing package. But after so many games with the same theme, can Rainbow and publisher THQ convince gamers to spend sixty bucks on a new racing game?
Conclusion: MX vs. ATV: Untamed is one of the best racing experiences to be release for a next generation platform. Several of the elements found within MotorStorm are also present within this title, while at the same time, new features have been added to enhance the racing experience. Overall, whether you own a PS3 or an Xbox 360, this title is definitely worth picking up.
Conclusion: Un título que aporta mucha variedad en este tipo de género, que a lo largo de las partidas disfrutaremos de una manera ejemplar. Recomendado en todos los sentidos para dar variedad, siendo un juego que siempre podemos guardar en la estantería y volver a jugarlo en tardes que no queramos dedicarnos a aniquilar monstruos inverosímiles o estemos cansados de seguir con las historias de nuestros personajes favoritos.
