    The tracks are absolutely gorgeous, as everything is rendered in excruciating detail.
  2. 87
    It's graphically solid in almost every way -- the framerate is smooth, the textures and models are sharp, the animation never fails -- and the physics model works to create a game that's both deep and playable.

    By far, it is the best racing game I've seen on the PlayStation 2.
  4. To all the PC nuts that are reading this, imagine "Motocross Madness 2" with 4 wheels and you know what to expect from this PlayStation 2 classic.
  5. The selection of courses is excellent, and the outdoor Enduro environments are packed with tons of thrills and secret locations.
  6. The eye-catching graphics, tight control, and enjoyable gameplay of this fine game really caught me by surprise. To all the PS2 users disappointed with the system's lackluster games, I highly suggest picking this title up.
  7. The graphics are solid, the gameplay is grand, and the possible parties are limitless.
  8. Although ATV Offroad Fury is not a keeper for everyone, you don't want to miss playing it at least once.
  9. Da Gameboyz
    The learning curve is higher than some gamers may want.
  10. Daily Radar
    When we're this in love with a game about silly four-wheeled pleasure machines for the suicidal, you can bet something really special is going on.
  11. The only real problem is a distinct lack of creativity.
  12. 80
    When you do get in the groove, and you're timing all your jumps perfectly, this game puts you in that hypnotic trance of gaming goodness. It's a very rewarding feeling.
