Just as much fun with 4 wheels


Following on from their recent success with 2XL Supercross, the developers have added 2 more wheels for their sequel 2XL ATV Offroad. There are quite a few changes and this is more than just a repackaging of their previous motorbike game.

In the Offroad version it's time to jump aboard a quad bike and take part in arcade, career or bluetooth multiplayer (at least once the bluetooth is activated in an update). There are three main modes; freestyle, outdoor track racing and stadium based supercross racing. There's not that much difference between the last two modes apart from the background and some of the sound effects. The graphics throughout the game are very impressive. 2XL ATV Offroad manages to give a fast paced game with decent graphics to boot.

The game uses tilt based controls for steering; there is a brake button and stunt buttons for the long jumps. Performing tricks is only really necessary during the freestyle stages. In these, a large clearing has been made with a few ramps, footballs and even skittles for you to play with. You have three minutes to perform as many tricks as you can. There are no points for long jumps, you have to try and add a spin by flipping your device or pressing a stunt button. The mechanism here is a lot more realistic than Red Bull X Fighters and trying to chain impossible stunts together is frankly impossible. The racing modes are a simple shoot out across three laps against a few other competitors.

The career option challenges you to win all the races and score thousands of freestyle points in a series of unlockable tracks. Above all this, there are dozens of achievements to discover. The beauty of the game is its learning curve. Keeping your ATV on the course will take a bit of practice and mastering all the tricks and timings will take plenty of repeat plays.

The game is quite pricey but given the quality of the graphics and the longevity of the game, it is all justified.
