ATV Offroad Fury: Blazin' Trails
Feel up for a challenge?
Then Blaziní Trails just might be the ticket that you need to keep your
pulse pounding as you go offroad in a pretty full on game. For those of
you who have not played an ATV title before, basically you are on a four
wheeler that goes hell for leather in a variety of gameplay modes that
are sure to please all comers.
The game is fairly unforgiving in single player mode
so be sure that you take some time in learning how to land your machine
as if you donít, then you might as well say goodbye to any lead you
might have had as the computer controlled opponents will just simply
race past you without so much as a wave.

The game is rounded out with an awesome soundtrack
that is sure to keep your pulse pounding. Itís one of the nice things
about the abilities of the PSP, that you can have a fun game that is
still rounded out with a proper soundtrack and score.
All in all, I found the whole game to be a lot of
fun, both in single player and multiplayer modes. The game is very open
to a all sorts of offroad hijinks and plays very well. All that I would
have to reiterate is that players need to constantly bear in mind that
the game is very unforgiving of mistakes in first person mode, whereas
your mates are just as likely as you to mess up...
This is a worthy addition to the ATV Offroad series
and a lot of fun for PSP owners, I have no problems recommending this
