ATV Offroad Fury 4 – PS2 – Preview

E3 2006 Hands On Preview

When a
racing title has several iterations you know that it is a solid franchise. When
it hits its fourth release in the series, and has at least one platform
offshoot, you know it is a hit franchise.

ATV Offroad
Fury 4 is back with the same great racing action but several new features to
lure in fans of offroad-racing action.

SCEA showed
off the title at a recent pre-E3 event in Los Angeles, affording journalists a
chance to wrap hands around a controller and hit the trails with a vengeance.
The verdict? Much fun. While the game was only in an alpha state, the
single-player and multiplayer were shaping up very nicely.

The game
features 74 tracks, four different vehicle types for 30 total drivable vehicles.
There are several new modes of play, but some must be unlocked through playing
in the story mode. The new modes are point-to-point, head-to-head, rally cross,
circuit, hill climb and a new hybrid version of national. Of course, freestyle
and super cross will still be available.

The game
with allow up to eight players online and will also come with a track editor.
The game will also allow players to cross-platform with PSP players.

The UI
sports easily accessible information and the controls are very intuitive. The
sound is well done and graphically the game has a very good look. The physics
are also on track making this game a lot of fun to play. The alpha build had
some load times, but expect that to clean up as the game heads toward release.

ATV Offroad
Fury 4 is entertaining and has a wide range of racing modes and other options
that should appeal to a wide range of racing fans.
