by Rainier on Jan. 9, 2003 @ 6:26 p.m. PST | Filed under News

ATV Quad Power Racing 2 puts you in the driving seat of powerful off-road quad bikes and then gives you that little bit extra. The fast, edge-of-your-seat arcade gameplay blends seamlessly with the outrageous tricks you can pull both in the air and on the ground. Whether you’re performing a heart attack over the dunes, an endo across the stadium or a nik nak in the swamps, you’ll always be pushing it to the limits. Plus, you can do it all as one of 10 real top pro riders or one of 10 new characters. Race against the AI competitors and friends to take the top prize in many game play modes. It’s astoundingly detailed but, don’t worry, the only thing you’ll get bogged down in is the mud. Race through the dirt in this all-action racer but be prepared to fight dirty too.
