  1. 100
    A rock ‘n’ rollin’, wrist-snapping slug of adrenaline on four-wheels that challenges you at every turn.
  2. You get tight gameplay, flawless control, addictive mini games, and fun, competitive racing. Too bad about the online aspect though.
  3. The competition is as intense as you want it to be (which on the higher difficulties can be damn near impossible). It has good music, good graphics, and lots of diversions if the main focus drags.
  4. The most bizarre of the games is ATV Hockey, but surprisingly it is a lot of fun to play.
  5. 90
    [Online play] makes a superior multiplayer game even better.
  6. 90
    It is easy to pick up and play, the controls are tight, and there is plenty to do and the online mode works well for those of you looking to do a little online racing. You couldn't ask for much more out of any one game.
  7. The gameplay truly is a work of art, and now that it has depth on its side, ATV is nothing short of a force to be reckoned with. [Jan 2003, p.92]
  8. There are only three words to describe most of the game’s controls, which are simple, precise and responsive. The games controls are just perfect and are some of the best I have played with in any racing title out on any console.
  9. Takes everything positive about the last game and improves in just about every area except for the sound... The online play is phenomenal.
  10. If online play is the pure reason you are buying this game, you may be seriously disappointed. The online racing can be very fun, but without any incentives there eventually gets to be no point to it.
  11. It is one of the best “extreme” racing titles on the system, and online play gives the game tremendous replay value.
  12. If you didn’t like the first ATV Offroad Fury, this game probably won’t make a believer out of you, as it’s virtually the same as the first one.

    Quick arcade ATV racer. Can only imagine playing this again if i was drunk and making fun of it with friends. The soundtrack is very annoying.Quick arcade ATV racer. Can only imagine playing this again if i was drunk and making fun of it with friends. The soundtrack is very annoying. The loading screens are horribly long. When you get hurt there's a noise indication but you can't tell who actually got hurt. There should be a better tutorial or a better explanation of how to hold speed going over jumps . Full Review »
