  1. It just is not the kind of game that will blow racing fans away.
  2. Provides some fun racing action, but it's not outstanding.

    Basically in the same leagues as "Fury" which is disappointing since "Fury" is more than a year old already.

    We only wish that there were more to do, tougher AI, and an online component for those lonely springtime evenings. Not perfect, but definitely not bad. [Mar 2003, p.38]
  5. What's really missing here? A bit of inventiveness, we think.

    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. Solid and reliable - good qualities in a dog, but we hope for more originality in a game. [PSM2]

    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.
  9. The racing can be good, the depth is fine, but the overall execution of the game makes the user feel like they have been shortchanged.
  10. While ATV Quad Power Racing 2 is a pretty decent racing game on its own merits, it can't be recommended over a couple of similar games that are already available.
  11. The frame rate is solid enough, as is the draw distance, however the water effects leave a lot to be desired when compared to the excellent lighting.
  12. With racing that’s both difficult and hard to control, as well a poor trick system, I’d be quick to pass this up.
  13. 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.

    Good gameplay but gets boring after a while!
