  1. Pure is just what the name implies, a game about pure fun.
  2. Pure is an enjoyable racing game even when an attempt to squeeze in one more stunt results in a pin-wheeling ragdoll rider and dropping a couple of positions.
  3. Great graphics, breathtaking stunts and fantastic driving feel - Pure is the surprise hit of the year as far as racing games are concerned. It's a perfect blend of fun and action and looks fantastic. It's possible to create more than 60.000 different Quads out of components, so no Quad looks like the other in multiplayer games. There is no story at all, but it's the perfect casual game once you're done with the short career mode.
  4. Fun, fun, fun. Pure doesn’t want to be realistic by any means, but to be a great arcade-game. Few other racing-titles this year were that easy to get into.
  5. Pure is probably the best Off-Road racing videogame of the last years. All the fun and the joy of riding a quad can be found here, and the pack comes with a great arcade style, astonishing environments and an accessible and spectacular driving.
  6. A wild, aggressive and entertaining racing game. User friendly controls, extreme tricks and splendid locations make Pure a great choice for those tired of FlatOut. ATV tuning guaranteed! [Nov 2008]
  7. Entertaining in short doses, but severely lacking in variation. [Issue#14, p.56]

    This is a fun game that is not too difficult and has enough big-air-eye-candy to give you 4 mental cavities. But there is one thing that is aThis is a fun game that is not too difficult and has enough big-air-eye-candy to give you 4 mental cavities. But there is one thing that is a major downside. The Load Screens. I have a decent computer with an up to date graphics card and 4 gigs of ram. The game runs smoothly on all of the menus and the actual racing part. But it takes FOREVER to load ANYTHING. It takes me 4 minutes to get to the main menu. Another 4 minutes to load the map, and another 3 minutes just to leave the race and go to the main menu. It's riduclous. I enjoy playing this game, but I will uninstall it next week and throw it away if the load screens continue to take forever. Expand
