  1. MX Vs. ATV Untamed may not shine like a next-gen star, but it sure plays like one.

    MX vs. ATV Untamed isn't the greatest motocross game ever, but it's so much damn fun that you probably won't care. Note to Rainbow, though: fire that janky, poorly rendered blonde you have carrying the sign before races and insert some live-action shots of two beauties in your commercial. You'll sell way more games.

    MX vs. ATV Untamed is a solid game, but one that will eventually lose its hold on you. If you haven't played an offroad racer in a while, this is the one to get, but don't hold your breath for something that will entertain you for hours and hours on end.
  4. MvA doesn’t do anything wrong per se, it’s just not the game that’s going to bring new fans over to the sport of motocross.
  5. As a motorcross game MX vs. ATV Untamed would have been nice to play. But the quality of the game has really been lowered by adding vehicles like buggies and monstertrucks. These could better have been removed from the game. When it comes to graphics this game can't cope with its competitors. It's a disappointing feeling to have a game in your possession which feels like an oldy.
  6. As for the gameplay, it’s a mixed bag, ranging from the hilariously entertaining to the mind-numbingly boring.
  7. A passionless racing cocktail that’ll fail to start your engine.

    This is a fun game. So man up and face it, this is a game which is only for fun. It isnt a serious and its not amazing. I cant say I think its fun for more than couple of hours because that would be a lie. Its ok though. Expand
