    Mad Raiders is an ATV racing game, made for XBLA. I can say having played it for real, that he is an Arcade version of Pure, having some elements from Nail'd. It has graphics on cell-shadded, but with realistic base details and fast and constant animations: the races have a lot of speed and action, and follows the classic scheme to earn points and stars to unlock new levels and vehicles,Mad Raiders is an ATV racing game, made for XBLA. I can say having played it for real, that he is an Arcade version of Pure, having some elements from Nail'd. It has graphics on cell-shadded, but with realistic base details and fast and constant animations: the races have a lot of speed and action, and follows the classic scheme to earn points and stars to unlock new levels and vehicles, having a total of 45 different tracks which ensures the gameplay lenght. The soundtrack and music that accompanies the game, are good, but nothing unusual. While maintaining a formula known in other games, the game has a nice gameplay, for those who like the style of Pure, with interesting graphics and actually is a well produced and fast ATV arcade racing game - recommend to anyone who likes the genre (which I'm not fan).

    Bought this on sale for $5...It has some great exaggerated jumps and speed. Learning new tricks and earning new vehicles along the career is a nice touch. Its a lot like Pure but more crazy. Is it fun? Kind of. What really kills it for me is that on many big jumps there always seems to be something in the way coming down- a giant rock, a huge tree, statue, etc that youll most likely hitBought this on sale for $5...It has some great exaggerated jumps and speed. Learning new tricks and earning new vehicles along the career is a nice touch. Its a lot like Pure but more crazy. Is it fun? Kind of. What really kills it for me is that on many big jumps there always seems to be something in the way coming down- a giant rock, a huge tree, statue, etc that youll most likely hit accidentally. And there are A LOT of huge jumps in the game. But the game doesnt give me freedom with those jumps but instead makes me try to control my character mid-air to avoid it. Its annoying at first but after the 100th time its frustrating. As with most racing games, rubber banding is present. Not terribly bad, but its there. Also, when you go up against a "Pro Racer" you will race a ghost of a very cheap, rubber banding ghost driver. I had to go back and do other races to earn enough credits to get a better vehicle, but this just led to the ghost car being that must faster. Annoying. Also the music is terrible. Very generic. Not bad for $5 considering I probably put about 5-6 hours into it and beat the game today. Expand

    A slick entry with a few bumps in the road. [Oct 2012, p.62]

    Techland has overlooked the fundamentals. A shoddy, albeit lightning-fast, racer. [Issue#87, p.88]

    Suffers from horribly blurred environments and rather buggy (ho!) collision detection. [Sept 2012, p.101]
