MX vs. ATV: Untamed is an offroad racing game developed by Rainbow Studios, Incinerator Studios, Tantalus Media and published by THQ for the Nintendo DS, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable, Xbox 360, Wii, and mobile phone.[1] It is a part of their MX vs. ATV series.

Gameplay[edit]

The game encompasses several modes: Motocross, Opencross, Supercross, Supermoto, Endurocross, and Minibikes, among others. The player has a relatively wide choice of vehicles, from monster trucks, to trophy trucks, to ATVs to motorbikes. In some modes, gameplay takes place over two motos, or qualifying events. The player's finishing position in the first moto determines who gets gate choice in the second moto. The player's finishing position in each moto determines how many points he or she gets. The goal is to finish the weekend with the most points. Additionally, in some modes, the player can participate in a short practice race, which can help players become familiar with the track and the vehicle prior to the two motos. Setting the fastest time in practice gives the player first gate choice for the first moto.
