I could not believe it when I first saw it too: An ATV video game? There's absolutely no way a gaming system could emulate the specific spirit of an ATV game. At first, I was decisive, being overly vital to a game I was convinced couldn't imitate the experience of a real ATV rider. But then I found out, after a few obscene curses and frustrated pounding on the keyboard (I purchased a PC version of MX vs. ATV Unleashed), it actually was a satisfying experience. Exactly as with any other video games, particularly in the sports genre, ATV video games are meant to be enjoyed as it is -a game and not as a substitute for an actual ATV sport.

Realism is the principal thing video games are attempting to improve. As technology makes its advance, ATV video games also take in perfecting realism. And it is evident that the quality of today's video games is a far cry from matches of the past.

ATV video game titles do carry the exhilaration of an ATV game, albeit in a different way. Some ATV video games made it in the tier of game rankings. If you're not still convinced, try these examples of an ATV video game. A word of warning is highly addictive that you may find yourself up in the middle of the night for just one more lap'.

MX vs. ATV Unleashed for the PC

Publisher: THQ

Developer: Rainbow Studios

MX vs. ATV Unleashed may be the game at the moment. Superior graphics, wonderful sound, and even more intense gameplay gives any player sufficient adrenaline-pumped action to keep him engaged for a long time. There's just a lot to do in MX vs. ATV Unleashed: freestyle mode, free ride, one on one challenges, and individual racing events. But the best feature may be the online game mode where you can play with friends and show off your stunts in free mode.

Controls physics, well detailed, and creative outdoor paths created this ATV video game title a sure winner.

Though it somewhat fails in the graphics section, this 2004 ATV video game enjoys a considerable amount of success with regards to its game tilt and fun factor. The success by large comes from the instant accessibility of the game and the wide variety of customization options. The game also manages to adhere to the thrills of the ATV sport. Like for instance, the single-player mode that's very good for beginning players. This option permits a practice mode where you are able to hone your ATV abilities and the championship mode if you want more challenge than blazing the paths by yourself.
