ATV Offroad Fury 4





I have always been a fan of realistic racing. Bouncing around, flying around, and sliding all over the place has never been my favorite kind of racing. ATV Offroad Fury 4 continues the over the top racing that is exactly as the name implies - off the road. The strange thing is even though this is off road racing, the game is extremely strict about going off the race track. Sony gives the player three seconds to get back on the track. Call me crazy if you want to, but I would expect a game with the mantra Offroad Fury to allow me to find my own path to the finish line. The all new story mode is shockingly adult in its themes for an ‘E’ (Everyone) rated title. The Track Editor is a very neat little feature included in this game.

Graphically ATV Offroad Fury 4 has some amazing details. The tone of the graphics is usually dirty and/or bland looking, since most of the tracks are off the pavement. The protective suits the players wear can be bright at times. I would hurt when my poor guy would go flying across the course after a miscalculation. There are some violent images as the ESRB noted, so come into that with a fair warning.

ATV Offroad Fury 4 has the most obnoxious music that I have EVER heard in a video game. Thankfully Sony allows the player to turn the music off. I heard a few offensive lyrics, and quickly went to the options to turn it off. The revving of the machines engines sounds very realistic, and that works well in this game. There are also players (in story mode) who are borderline offensive to offensive to one another. Again the entire story mode is very adult in its nature.

There are over 70 tracks that are awaiting the player, along with whatever tracks the player creates themselves. Over 30 different vehicles are included, and enough modes to keep the most expectant gamer busy. More than one person can play ATV Offroad Fury 4 together, and online. Connectivity to the PSP is also included. Is it worth your hard earned dollars? That is a tough one for me to answer. If you like high flying supercross style of racing, and turn off the music then yes. Everyone else should pass.

I am a big stickler on the control issues. ATV Offroad Fury 4 loves to have the player fall off their vehicle (ATV, or bike) when a computer controlled character bumps you. This can be impossible to avoid when they come from behind you. Some added realism is needed there. This game controls well otherwise, and the controls are in the right spots. Certain races take longer to learn, as do some vehicles.

There is a lesson in this game to never give up until the end of the race. Quick reflexes, and fast thinking can also be learned. I would love a sequel to this game if they can clean up the control, and language issues in ATV Offroad Fury 4. A decent game with lots of options. - Frank
