This title had so much promise when it came out however after you get this game you will quickly realize that while the idea was stellar the coding wasn't lack luster at best. Sounds aren't as realistic and don't match what is happening in certain situations. The physics are solid but the developer needs to EXPLAIN this to the common gamer. I figured it out quickly but i read review after review bashing the game for being too difficult to play.
This is a good technical game once you understand how to race within it. If you don't get the whole shot, and even when you do get it, there is a 99% chance you will get wrecked and end up in the rear of the pack. Also the last lap super acceleration by the CPU is a little outrageous.
There are no differences between the types of ATVs and Cycles in the game, which defeats the purpose of having them. The Atom 450R and the Storm 450S only differ by the name they all share your suspension setup. And the bottom half of the X-Cross bracket could be eliminated all together. The sand rail and truck racing is BORING!!!!!
Good game overall but prepare to be frustrated and upset at this game for a the first few plays. The newer version is out "Reflex" and it too proves to have the same inherent flaws.
