GPT: "In the world of racing games, it seems like the industry is always looking for a hook. Because of this, the genre has veered off course in recent years and gone down the path of over-the-top arcade action instead of actual simulation racing. Don’t get me wrong, I love variety. I think gamers should have a choice when they head to their local retailer. That’s why I was so pleasantly surprised after spending a little time with MX vs. ATV: Alive from THQ. The bike and quad racer has action for sure, but that action is strongly rooted in simulation. You won’t find any exploding building or gun turrets putting you in their sights here. This is just good old fashioned racing that finds a way to pump up the adrenaline without the aid of combat or science-fiction."
