ATV Offroad Fury 3 is the third racing video game in the ATV Offroad Fury series, developed by Climax Studios and released in North America in 2004 and in Europe in 2006, exclusively for the PlayStation 2. The game is preceded by ATV Offroad Fury 2 and followed by ATV Offroad Fury 4. As is with the rest of the series, the game revolves around racing on all-terrain vehicles (ATVs).

Gameplay[edit]

Expanding from its predecessor, ATV Offroad Fury 3 features more ATVs, along with more championships, mini-games and improved physics. As is with the rest of the series, the game revolves around racing all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) around a dirt track. In addition to racing, another major focus of the game is stunts. Stunts can be achieved by tapping a combination of buttons while the player's ATV is in the air. Each stunt requires a different amount of time to perform.

The game also offers online play via i-Link, local area network (LAN) or other network connections.
