Ars technica - Pure: ATV racer comes out of left field, steals Ars' heart

Ben Kuchera writes: "It's great to be surprised by a game, and these days it doesn't seem like it happens very often. I had written off Pure a while ago, before I stumbled on the thread for the game in our forums. Let me give you some idea of how much people seem to have liked the demo..."

* "I just played the demo again, and I'm amazed at how much I'm looking forward to this title. I also realized one other aspect of what really 'clicks'... it's reminiscent of my time with ExciteTruck in the way the jumps and airtime feel. A total sleeper out of deep left field!"

* "Downloaded and went through the demo today. It really does look amazing and the controls are solid. Definitely grabbing this when it comes out. I like the look and feel much more than MotorStorm."

* "I just popped in the 360 disc version I picked up over the weekend from Gamestop... very cool demo (quick tutorial, then one race). The trick trick/race ratio is very SSX. Definitely left me wanting more!"

I just popped in the 360 disc, doh. 360 doesn't have motorstorm.

You prefer pure, because you have no motorstorm, i'm confused.:)

Both are very good games, but are very different.

The crashes and AI of Motorstorm are in another league, but if you can't have Motorstorm I guess you can race one type of vehicle without any rage or crazy s#!t happening around you and say it's better.
