Not That Great

I really didn't like this game. Definitely not one of the better games in this franchise. I found the Menu Structure Confusing. No good Season or Career mode. Upgrading sucked, and the graphics are no means up to par for the PS3. I DO NOT RECCOMMEND THIS GAME.

Another mediocre if not terrible game.

First things first, what about this game is supposed to seperate it from the other mx, atv, dirt racing, etc... games? The answer here is completley unrealistic physics, and not in a good way.

I'd like to think that most people agree with me, but these days completley unrealistic physics are usually an unwelcome feature in a game. Certain games can pull it off, but in order to do that, the game has to be ridiculously fun, and I mean so fun that wetting your pants is a constant danger. In the case of MX vs ATV, it just feels like they lazily pumped out another mx vs atv clone with a face-lift, and just hoped that the graphics would distract us enough to stop us from realizing how insanley terrible the game is.

Nowaday, gamers usually crave a good amount of realism in the games they play. Perhaps not at the level of Gran Turismo, or Forza, but enough realism where it actually feels like your driving a car, or riding a bike of some kind. There's no good sense of speed, and it feels like you're driving an RC car.

I popped this game in (now keep in mind that racing games are my achilles heel) and started it on hard mode, which I normally sorely regret after having thrown my controller at the wall with enough force to make it shower plastic bits of anguish. At one point I hit a jump going 90 MPH, and landed right in front of a very sharp right turn. I thought there would be no way I would make the turn, surely within seconds, my rider would be lying on the ground, just like me... just that tears of unfathomable sadness would be rolling down my cheeks while I pounded my fists onf the ground and kicked my legs uncontrolably. However, I still tried, and viola, at 90 MPH I made the turn easily and stayed in first place.

All in all, this game is just easy and boring. Don't buy it unless you want an ego boost (but really, how much of an ego boost can you get from a game aimed at 12 year olds.)

MX vs. ATV Untamed - BIG letdown

I thought that this game would at least as good as the last few, but I was wrong. Not to take anything away from track racing games, but it just wasn't my kind of game. I like free roam/search for somebody to race with kind of games. And I would say that most of the gaming population would agree with me. So, as a fellow Gameflyer, I ask you to not rent this game, let alone buy it.
