North America Retail Box ArtUnited Kingdom Retail Box ArtThe arcade-style ATV Quad Power Racing 2 is as much about big air and reckless hot-dogging as it is about crossing the finish line. To make any progress in this game, you must not only win races, but master increasingly complicated tricks and combos. Taking the time to master tricks pays off in the end--there is no shortage of locked features that open up with each advance in skill. The game incorporates a wide array of well-rendered racers, vehicles, and locations. The various racing courses are elaborate and nicely detailed. You can knock competitors out of your way by administering a solid kick while passing--not exactly sportsmanlike behaviour, but gratifyingly reminiscent of the classic Road Rash. For tricksters and stunt-riders, the freestyle arenas offer a candy store of possibilities. But the standout feature is the physics model behind the game. The overall handling and responsiveness of the vehicles is surprisingly realistic--even the controller vibration is more convincingly incorporated than in other racing games. Some finesse is required to pull off even the simpler tricks, and as with the real thing, it's easy to lose control of these powerful machines. --Maile Bohlmann
