I loved MX
Unleashed when it was originally launched on
the PS2 and those of you familiar with that game will feel
right at home with MX Vs. ATV Unleashed. There is a
slightly different system for performing back flips and a
new stunt variation has been added that allows you to complete
360-degree stunts, but basically everything else is the same.
updated version of the MX Unleashed series not only
allows you to race motocross bikes, but also ATV's - or quad
bikes, if you like. This adds something extra to the gameplay,
but to be honest I preferred to stick with the bikes. As you
progress, you can control unlockable vehicles including sand-rails,
monster trucks, bi-planes and even 4x4 golf carts.
MX Unleashed's freeworld option allowed you to explore
large areas of land with rocky areas, with which to perform
jumps and stunts, and a number of challenges, when you start
MX Vs. ATV Unleashed the environments that you can
explore are very dull and they only have a few very bland
challenges - which are usually just more races.
are plenty of extras to unlock in this version, but you start
with such a small selection that you are going to have to
win a few races before you can unlock the more interesting
parts of the game. Those that remember the variation of playable
stunts available from the start of MX Unleashed, like the
precision jump mode that had the rider attempting to jump
onto numerous targets, will be disappointed with the very
bland modes available. While you can unlock sections as you
go along, it would have been much better if some of these
were available from the start.
most annoying thing about this game is the randomness of who
falls off their vehicle when two machines crash. I moaned
about it in my review of MX Unleashed and I'm going
to moan once again. There is nothing more annoying than to
be ahead of the pack, only to be knocked flying because someone
else decides to ram you. This happens a little to frequently.
Having said that, it's great fun to watch as your opponents
go flying while you come off unscathed.
this is still a pretty cool game I prefer MX Unleashed
- it's just more fun and you feel like you're getting somewhere
as you complete the challenges.
