ATV Offroad Fury 3

I know that the sport of ATV is not widely known or acknowledged throughout the sporting community and as such is considered a niche type activity. Rainbow studios handled the first two titles in this Sony series and this time around duties have fallen to developer Climax. Iím glad to say that the game is still as much fun as it was in the past. 

For those who donít know, ATV or all terrain vehicles are those big four wheel vehicles that race around the desert or in stadium environments. Not only are there races but the game boasts a good range over over 30 stunts that can be undertaken in the game. You might find though that the challenge levels in the game prevent you from you doing anything other than the most straightforward of tricks. 

One of the nice things about the game that needs paying attention to is the need to practise preloading your suspension to get the most out of jumps. Itís a little bit fiddly at first but with time and practise you do get the hang of it. 

Graphically the game is very nice to look at and the framerate rocks along without any real problems. The AI in the game at times acts almost like a rubber band, so beware of making any mistakes as you will pay for them with the lead. It is always just a matter of making sure that you line up all your jumps accurately as itís in the landing that makes all the difference to the race. 

Over the 40 playable tracks, you can amass big scores by combining tricks together. The thing is that doing the actual tricks is more than possible, itís hard to string them together which is the way it should be, raising the challenge bar just that bit higher. 

You can take ATV OF3 online as well and battle it out with 5 other players which works well. Every game mode works online as far as I checked and also I was able to talk smack over the built in headset/voice support. Those of you without a headset and with nimble fingers can just plug in your usb keyboard to talk it up. 

There are a range of mini games that can unlocked during the game and you can also upgrade your rider and ATV to get even more out of an already extremely fun game.  

If you are after a title that is faced paced, challenging, and a hell of a lot of fun both on and offline, then this is one for you. Appropriate for almost any age group, make sure you try out this one from Red Ant.
