Acclaim, one of the earliest Nintendo third party licensees back in the day, was not scared to take chances with games that they released. Sometimes these chances paid off for them while other times they hit a lame duck or two (Total Recall on NES anyone?). Throughout their storied career one genre seemed to evade them nearly altogether, racing. Not just racing but ATV racing to boot.
With the success of the Playstation 2, Acclaim was able to take chances with games that got released. ATV’s may not be the first thing to pop into someones mind when they think of a cool racing title but ATV Quad Power Racing was popular enough to warrant a sequel. Taking on the dirt and opponents alike, players had their choice of several modes such as Arcade, Career (there are people that make a living riding these things?), Freestyle, Challenge and more.
ATV Quad Power Racing 2 hit the Playstation 2, Gamecube and original Xbox and generally received an average score between the mid 60’s and 70’s with reviewers. ATV Quad Power Racing 2 is not available digitally at this time.
