Game review: Pure
Format: PC, PS3, Xbox 360; Publisher: Disney; Price: £39.99
Thursday 30 October 2008
Extreme racing games don’t always have the best reputation – and this stunt-filled quad bike racer won’t go down as a classic – but it’s a blast to play. You race around 30 tracks in a variety of exotic locations – including an active volcano – sometimes in a straight dash to the line, sometimes attempting to rack up the most point through tricks.
With the latter aspect of the game, Pure takes the non-realistic approach of the Tony Hawks skateboarding series: some of the stunts you do are possible in real life, but a signification proportion are rather silly. However, this just adds to the fast-paced fun the game provides, especially when you launch yourself off some of the massive jumps.
It isn’t the hardest game to play, but this just means it’s easy to pick up. Yes, if you’re a fan of hardcore racing simulations, this isn't the game for you. But if you want furious action in beautiful surrounds, Pure will leave you breathless.
