    ATV: Quad Power Racing 2 is to "ATV Offroad Fury 2," as peas and carrots are to filet of Wild Virginia Bass with melted Savoy cabbage and Spanish caper emulsion.
  2. What developer Climax has produced here is a simple, accessible racing game with modest goals that it, for the most part, accomplishes.
  3. Gamer purists may feel a lack of variety in the essential gameplay.
  4. The novelty of kicking your friends from their bike in the heat of a race won't last forever, so once that aspect of the fun wears off so does any urge to hunker down to a night of ATV Quad Power Racing 2.

    In terms of performance, the game fares better than the PS2 version, with a fairly consistent frame rate that conveys a decent sense of speed. The game occasionally slows down, but only when the screen is overpopulated with racers.
  6. Play Magazine
    If you own multiple consoles - although the game is solid across all three platforms - the Xbox game takes the prize, with eight competitors to the GC and PS2's six, along with a four-player mode compared to the other consoles' two. [Mar 2003, p.64]
  7. Nintendo Power
    Although the game doesn't have the intangibles that put "Freekstyle" over the edge, it's still a wild ride. [May 2003, p.139]
  8. It has the Sega-esque quality of being able to take it off the shelf a few months down the road and still have fun with it.
  9. Despite its similarities to other extreme-type racers, it offers enough of a difference in physics and control to provide a fresh experience.
  10. The career is extremely short and can be beaten quickly.
  11. It's a good game, but since you can blow through it so quickly you may want to give it a rent instead of buying it.
  12. The first play through is genuinely enjoyable and the two-player option just about as good as it gets. Given the number of bikes on the track it's a shame that a four-player option wasn't included.

    This game is amazing and aged very well. Sure, there is so minor mistakes but everything else is amazing and very addicting. This game is very decent.
