ATV Quad Power Racing is an all-terrain vehicle racing video game released in 2000 for the PlayStation and in 2002 for the Game Boy Advance. There are two sequels released: ATV Quad Power Racing 2 and ATV: Quad Frenzy.

Gameplay[edit]

There are four gameplay modes: championship, single race, time attack, and two-player. In championship mode there are six different playable characters to choose from and twelve tracks to race on.[1][2] The tracks are separated to three different themes: desert, forest and snow. Objective is to win first place against five other computer-controlled opponents. In the time attack mode and the single race mode objective is to record a high score by time or place respectively. Two-player mode is a race between two human opponents in split screen. The game also features weather effects.[3]

Reception[edit]

ATV Quad Power Racing was received poorly by critics. GameSpot's Shane Satterfield wrote that for ATV enthusiasts the game may warrant a rental but others who are only mildly into the sport will be disappointed by the game's repetitive graphics, steep learning curve, and overall lack of variety or fun.[1] IGN also gave low marks saying that "This game has little to no balance, very poor racing AI and never really gets past go...or is that Start".[2] Game Vortex gave a good score of 86 out of 100 but still concluded the review that "my final call on ATV Quad Power Racing is that it's an acquired taste for most people, even hard-core racers".[3]
