  1. I absolutely loved Pure, and while I've played a fair share of decent off road racers in the past couple years, nothing compares to Pure in my opinion.
  2. Pure offers a massive amount of content for the money, and the online multiplayer, which features up to sixteen players, is as intense as any other racing game’s this generation.
  3. Pure fun, Pure entertainment, Pure eye candy – that’s what you get with this title. The game does have some small failings, but nothing totally worth mentioning. What is compelling about this title are the tracks, the air and the way the terrain will affect your ATV. This is great fun.
  4. Pure is one of the most appealing arcade games of the last years. It's uncompromising, full of energy and with high production values.

    Anyone even remotely interested in the racing genre owes it to themselves to pick up this gem.

    If you're after something short term – maybe a rental – then Pure is great: it's an adrenaline shot administered by a supermodel. But after a few days, you will very likely realise just how vacuous that supermodel is (how little Pure offers in terms of longterm gaming).
  7. It takes a while for things to get stale though, and until then this is a surprisingly strong new entrant to the off-road scene. [Nov 2008, p.117]

    I have only played the demo. And I must say, the graphics are incredible and the effects are mind blowing. I got hooked onto it the first time. I can't wait to get the full game. I find myself playing the demo over and over again. I just got myself on first place today, and wanted to find some user reviews out there. Looks like I was the first one to even write a review.

    Pure is an exhilarating thrill ride from start to finish. It feels new and different to all the other racers out there with its blend of tricks and racing. It's easy to get into but hard to master. Expand

    This game totally takes me back to the PS2 classic Freekstyle. Gigantic jumps, massive air, and intense racing! This game is by no means realistic...just the way I like it. If you like extreme stunts that aren't possible, check this game out.


    Graphics = The stages look great and the backgrounds are breathtaking at times, the characters are a little bland but that's not what the game is about.


    Sound = The sound effects are great, especially when you take off from a huge drop and all sounds drowned out except the wind.


    Music = Wasn't too impressed with the soundtrack but it is good for racing I suppose.


    Controls = Pick up and go, the tricks come gradually giving you time to learn easy to hard in that order.


    Difficulty = Learning which course uses what bike may be a little challenging, because of the in depth create a bike section. Your tires play a bigger role than most realize.


    Fun factor = I'm totally hooked so yeah its good, check out the demo on PSN to see how you like it.


    Replay value = With the seemingly limitless bike combination's , and online sprints, races, and free roam, you could rack up alot of replay time.


    Overall value = If you're into extreme over the top thrills than this is a must own for racing fans

    The driving aspect is fast and fluid, but the emphasis on inane tricks everytime you are in the air seems to be a pointless combination of 2 different games. Expand
