    Track design is good if not very memorable, and the upgrade system is nice. However, the AI isn't perfect and the single-player career is simply a strung-together series of races.
  2. You'll be hard-pressed to find more bang for your buck than this packed PSP off-road racing game.
  3. Players will be able to tell that this game was made from the ground up with the PlayStation Portable controls in mind, because this game handles really well. Handling the various vehicles all felt natural and fun as you are doing various tricks in the air.
  4. Brown and benign, ATV Pro may have a lot of deep mud but its fails to grip over the long term.
  5. Even if you're not a huge racing fan by any means (I'm not either), you'll still get a kick out of the core game mechanic of this title. It's all about having fun, and Fury Pro offers a whole lot of that.
  6. With so many options and the incredible multiplayer, this easily ranks as a must-play for fans of racing and its console counterpart.

    Not only the best ATV game available for the PSP, but it's also one of the best ATV racing games for any system.
  8. A pretty decent but ultimately average racer.

    Efficiently recreates the spirit of the sport, but it's far too samey. [Aug 2008, p.81]

    While certainly not the finest racing game ever made, credit must be given where it's due. Climax has squeezed an awful lot of game onto a UMD here. Not only is it vastly improved over last year's game, but you also get a lot of bang for your dirt-riding, dike-jumping, snowmobiling buck here.
  11. ATV Offroad Fury Pro has made a quantum leap over Blazin' Trails. Learning from their mistakes, developer Climax has retooled everything from the controls to the graphics, making Offroad Fury Pro so good that it's a wonder what happened the first time around.
  12. If you are already enjoying the PS2 version of ATV 4 then this is the perfect way to take that same racing fun on the road, or even if this is your only version of the game, there is plenty to like in Offroad Fury Pro.
  13. The inclusion of online play is a great bonus for a PSP racing game. With a few more tracks and a bit more background sound, AOFP could have been a terrific game.
  14. ATV Offroad Fury Pro won't win any awards for graphics or game play, but it does feature an insane amount of levels, modes, mini-games and multiplayer fun.
  15. Infrastructure play even supports leader boards so that you can see just how well you stack up against the world.

    It’s worth a look for fans of the genre and even someone looking for a well-rounded racing experience on the Sony handheld.
  17. 75
    Despite a few issues, Climax's game is an excellent first-party title. Solid gameplay, visuals and multiplayer modes makes ATV Offroad Fury Pro one of the best off-road racing titles to hit the PlayStation Portable.
  18. 60
    An amazing technical achievement on the PSP, and is leaps and bounds better then last years Blazin' Trails. However you can't help but feel like you're playing a ho-hum console game that will leave you wanting more of almost everything.

    In fact, with the track tuning for PSP-sized bites, this is superior to the PS2's current "ATV Offroad Fury 4". [Jan. 2007, p.92]

    The environments are sweet, but it's the new vehicles, the 60 something odd tracks, and killer four-player online play that have us most excited. [Jan. 2007, p.85]
  21. There's just a crazy amount of things to do, though the game isn't overly thrilling. It lacks a good sensation of speed, the controls could've been tighter, and the graphics aren't so hot.
  22. What was wrong in the series’ first attempt on the PSP has been almost entirely fixed here, which could make Pro the game that "ATV Offroad Fury" fans have wanted all along.

    The lack of finesse in the handling remains a deal breaker. [Aug 2008, p.80]
  24. Loads of content wrapped in an attractive presentation and multiplayer to boot, this is a game that’ll give ATV fans everywhere a lot of bang for their bucks. There are some flaws though, the vehicle physics is a bit dodgy and the learning curve for beginners is a bit steep. All in all, this is still a great game for those who desire portable ATV-action.
  25. It is the sheer amount of stuff that really sells ATV Offroad Fury Pro. Sure, the racing is far tighter and there's far more stuff to do, but from mini-games to a track editor to online play to tons of crosstalk info to shared leaderboards and online forums.
  26. The best of the series and a top-shelf racing game for the PSP. Climax has packed this disc full of events, vehicles, and options that will keep you on the dirt for a while. Even though ATV Offroad Fury Pro can be a little repetitive, it's still fun.
  27. A no-brainer for ATV fans and even more generally for racing game fans. The PSP has quite a number of racing games, but this is one of the most entertaining.
  28. A whole lot of new content, but the gameplay feels the same as we've seen before.
  29. The wealth of multiplayer options rounds out an assortment of gameplay modes that provide a ton of gameplay that should keep you busy until the next installment.
  30. 81
    A boatload of fun with very few problems.
  31. Playability and visuals were improved, and the high production values are frequently noticeable.
  32. ATV Offroad Fury Pro ticks every box it has to without particularly excelling in any specific category.
