What experts liked
Graphically, PURE is simply a gorgeous game. The environments you'll race though are vividly detailed with blooms of light and eye-catching structures throughout.

Pure looks like a million bucks. The vistas go on for miles, the bikes look sharp and the character animations are engaging and slick.

The tracks offer an excellent amount of variety, both visually and structurally--the hairpin turns through the airplane graveyard at Ocotillo Wells in California provide a sharp contrast to the gentle curves that take you through the lush coastal landscape of Kosa Phi Island in Thailand.

Aside from how generic and plain the characters look, everything is brilliant in terms of graphics.

The graphics are spectacular and it can be a wild ride trying to pull off some of these stunts while trying to land correctly at the same time so you don’t crash.

What experts didn't like
Sadly, online play is limited to one player with no split-screen option for online or local play.

The levels and tracks are lovingly rendered, and the menus (save for the ATV construction system) and uber-intuitive. Load times are frustratingly long, however.

Doesn't offer much in the way of originality.
- GameSpot

A lack of a varied soundtrack keeps this section from shining, but it could have been worse.
- Xbox Achievements

Also some gamers are going to be disappointed to hear that there is no offline multiplayer. This could be a real problem for those gamers who either can’t or just don’t like playing on Xbox Live.
