  1. A surprisingly fun title to have and play. I've spent more time with it then I normally would have because my kid loves it.
  2. The gameplay needs some time to get used to, but it's easy enough once you work into it. Everything just fits together neatly.
  3. MX vs. ATV Unleashed is a fast-paced and fun-filled arcade racing game, loaded with enough variety of modes and unlockable content to keep you engaged for quite a while.

    We recommend sticking to the console versions, unless you yearn to make courses with the editor and share them with friends.

    The game's stunt-loving, high-flying target audience will find a treat...but even they may eventually grow weary of its foibles. [Mar 2006, p.83]

    Even after five years, it still hurts so good. [May 2006, p.56]
  7. The awful load times from the console versions have been radically reduced here, but there are still a number of other problems that start to grate after a while - such as the need to perform tricks to earn points needed to buy new tracks, riders and other things from the store. All problems aside, MX vs. ATV Unleashed is an enjoyable game.

    The PC game is actually a late-to-the-table port of a 2005 Xbox and PS2 release, and it shows. [Apr 2006, p.98]

    The track editor...is fantastic. [July 2006, p.84]
  10. Unleashed has numerous severe issues; however, the core of the game can still be very fun, especially if you are a fan of dirt racing, or at least have watched a few races at a real track.

    MX Vs. ATV Unleashed does nothing drastically wrong, it just fails to do anything drastically right. It is a moderately entertaining racer, sure, but is too lightweight to inspire any long-term appeal.
  12. This is a solid game with a multitude of different racing modes (online and off) that will have even the heartiest of crotch dirt-rocket lovers gleefully grabbing their gamepads for hours on end!

    My childhood is within this Game. The game works fine for me on Win 7 and it's still is as great as I remember when I was a kid. No doubt theMy childhood is within this Game. The game works fine for me on Win 7 and it's still is as great as I remember when I was a kid. No doubt the best MX VS. ATV compared to the new and old. It has an easy to use track editor in it to make creating your own track something anyone can do and also has a sort of nostalgia factor. 10/10.... PS2 child memories. Full Review »
