Pure is exactly the opposite of what you want in a ATV game.
On the one hand, it is laughably inaccurate when it comes to the simulated racing part of the game. For example, when you are racing in real life, you are rewarded by taking the correct lines thru turns to get a better hole-shot coming out of the turn. You are also rewarded in real life by having smooth jumps and landings that keep your momentum up. This is not the case in Pure. It teaches players to "preload" their atv's prior to jumps in order to do tricks to gain boost. Yeah right!
"Now wait" you might say, "this is a game, hellooo"! I agree, which brings us to the other fatal shortcoming of the game, the lack of multiplayer and the fact that you cannot goof around on tracks except in freestyle mode! The game does not allow you to cut corners (literally) and any attempt to deviate from the track, or go the wrong way, is met by being placed back where you belong by the cpu. My friends and I enjoy being able to just play around in games like these and were met by an epic fail due to lack of multiplayer mode!
Thank god I was able to send this stupid game right back to Gamefly!
