  • Summary: In MX vs. ATV Unleashed, players power through all-new environments and event types, choosing from a variety of new vehicles. A redesigned monster truck, powerful sand-rail and raised 4x4 golf karts meet ATVs, dirt bikes and bi-planes to compete in massive free-world environments featuring hill climbs, machine challenges and short track races. The game's career mode allows gamers to choose from the top professional ATV and Motocross riders. [THQ] Expand

  1. The PSP version seems more forgiving than the PS2 version when it comes to collisions with other drivers.
  2. The great controls, fun game modes, interesting track design and vehicle mixing make this game a real treat. The really long load times, no major career mode and lack of online play will make fans cry.
  3. Aside from those pesky loading times, the game does a very admirable job of translating the console experience to a handheld system.
  4. The great control, realistic physics, and abundance of tracks give MX vs. ATV Unleashed: On The Edge a lot to boast about.
  5. But how can you really enjoy a game that's supposed to be portable, that's supposed to be playable anytime and anywhere, when you have to wait so long to start just one race? The answer: not very well. [May 2006, p.85]
  6. It isn't terrible, but it's doing absolutely nothing that we've not seen before. It's a realistic, but soulless, exhibition of off-road action. Get it on PS2 instead. [May 2006, p.78]

    An instantly tiresome game free from anything genuinely new or interesting. [Issue#139, p.71]

    Lets get muddy. Its a good game but its just... generic. The same copy and paste game we always receive from THQ. Its fun, fast and doesn't take itself seriously, just as it should be. I still think it should be better though. Expand
