ATV Offroad Fury 4 is a racing video game, developed by Climax Racing. The game was released in North America on October 31, 2006 exclusively for the PlayStation 2. It is the fourth installment of the ATV Offroad Fury series, and the sequel to ATV Offroad Fury 3.

Features[edit]

ATV Offroad Fury 4 sees the introduction of new vehicles such as MX motocycles, Trophy Trucks and Dune Buggies, alongside existing ATV quad racers; this allows the game to include up to 50 Championship Modes. In addition to improved graphics, it also has an additional 60 tracks and improved online gaming.

In terms of in-game controls, more tricks are possible while the player is on an MX motorcycle, but none can be performed while the player is controlling a Trophy Truck and Dune Buggy. Similar to the risk of being thrown off an ATV or motorcycle in the game, Trophy Trucks and Dune Buggies are vulnerable to rollovers, from which the player's vehicle will be automatically reset back on all four wheels, as are the ATV and motorcycle. The game also offers tutorials on how to drive Trophy Trucks and Dune Buggies.

Similar to NASCAR Thunder 2004, is the introduction of rivals. All opponents have an icon above them; when a player hits an opponent, the opponent, the icon will turn red, and the opponent will be more aggressive towards the player.[1]

The game has a "Story Mode", where players compete in events around the world, and players are required to complete a certain amount of events to move on.[2]

ATV Offroad Fury 4 includes more mini-games, such as "Ice Hockey" (introduced in ATV Offroad Fury 2), "Scavenger Hunt", "King Of The Hill", "Bowling", and "Ring of Fire".

Reception[edit]

The game received positive reviews. CNET praised the vehicle upgrade system, but criticized the freestyle events, voice acting, and the AI, a common recurrence throughout the series. Nonetheless, CNET considered the game as the best in the series.[2]
