Pure (Xbox 360)
Advantages: Racing is great fun, tricks and boosting add depth, looks amazing
Disadvantages: Only if you don't like racing.
Pure is an offroad racing game for the Xbox 360 developed by Disney Interactive.
I know what your thinking already, a Disney racing game.. no thanks but bare with me this is actually a quality title as Disney have recruited Black Rock Studios who worked on the MX vs ATV games.
The games main mode is its World Tour mode, this is the games career mode as you work your way to become the Pure champion. You will work your way through the ranks and as y ou go will unlock new faster ATVs and customization options to mess around with as well as compete in many race events.
This game offers a really interesting racing system, standard races where you race against a bunch of opponents to the finish, freestyle trick mode where you perform insane tricks and collect powerups to get the highest score possible and sprint where you race around smaller and more tricky circuits.
The games racing mechanics are one of the most fun and innovative in a recent racing game, at its core the game offers a really fun arcade driving model that is easy enough to pick up and play yet has some depth to it. The depth comes in the form of tricks and boost, performing tricks is easy to do simply a push of a button after you go over a jump will perform a cool looking trick, as you get more boost the type of tricks you can perform get more advanced until you can perform a super move which is reminiscent of the things you could do in the SSX games.
Boost is earned by performing tricks and is necessary to perform your super move but if you get it you will get a nice refill so there is no penalty! It is also used to simply give you a boost and get you ahead of your opponents.
Graphics here are stunning comparable with the Motorstorm games that are exclusive to the Playstation 3, environments are sharp and detailed and the muddy tracks will deform as your ATV wheels dig into the dirt.
Don't let the Disney name on the box put you off, Pure is a brilliant racing title well worth playing.
Summary: Great game.
