Great, you say, another ATV game for the PSP. After the mediocre and frustrating ATV Offroad Fury: Blazin' Trails that sentiment is an obvious one. With its bad controls and murky graphics, Blazin' Trails was one of those games that should have been thrown into the reject pile.

Fortunately, with ATV Offroad Fury Pro, developer Climax has tossed out that old engine and improved this game in every conceivable way. The vehicles, once herky-jerky, now control and react easily and the graphics are sharp and, at times, impressive. Offroad Fury Pro is such a vast improvement over the last game, in fact, that it's hard to believe so much time and effort went into it.

And the amount of material they've packed into a single UMD is shocking. In addition to loading the game with several new vehicles and a wider selection of more innovative tracks, the developers have tossed in a few minigames and a lengthy soundtrack as well. But with so much material crammed onto the disc, the load times can be frustrating (some lasting as much as thirty seconds), which inevitably pulls you out of the gameplay experience.
