    Box10 ATV 5 MainFree on-line video games are, for the most part, disappointing. So it was with very low expectations that I clicked on a link for Box10 ATV 5. What can I say…I’m can’t turn down anything ATV-related.

    My main complaint with most of these games is that they’re just too easy. At first it didn’t seem as if ATV 5 would be any different. The first few levels of this 10-level game went by in a flash. Sure, I crashed and burned a time or two, but mostly because I was trying to rush through it so my co-workers wouldn’t make fun of me for playing.

      MX vs. ATV: Alive, the latest iteration in THQ’s hit series, goes on sale on May 10. ATV.com will be receiving copy soon and you can expect a full review in the coming weeks.

      We had a lot of fun with MX vs. ATV Untamed when we reviewed it a few years back and our hopes are high for Alive. What should make things interesting this time around is that users will get to choose branded machines. Manufacturers like Suzuki and Yamaha have signed on so you won’t have to use the mystery machines any more.

      Game play also looks to be improved with “bar-to-bar racing.” According to THQ, this allows for increased physical contact between racers and should cut down a little on the crashing. It’s designed to more closely simulate actual racing, which can only be a good thing.

      We’ll let you know what we think of everything after we get our hands on the game.

        THQ’s upcoming MX vs. ATV: Alive features upgraded the graphics, physics and features based on the design team received from fans.

        One of those improvements is the addition of bar-to-bar racing, which means racers will now be able to race harder and faster than ever before. Rather than crashing after coming into contact with other riders, players will bump, elbow and fight their way to the finish line just like the pros do.

        THQ provided us with a trailer, featuring motocross legend James “Bubba Stewart, which provides an overview of what bar-to-bar racing means and how it will affect play in MX vs. ATV: Alive.

            Playing Coal Mine ATV won’t cost you anything but your time. That cost is far too high.

            We’re always on the lookout for ATV-related video games and have played many free ones. Most of these offer fairly similar game play. Some focus on big tricks and crazy stunts, while others focus on getting from point A to point B as quickly as possible. The goal with Coal Mine ATV seems to be just getting to the finish line. Just ride over obstacles and try not to tip over.

            It appears that this is a 10-level game, but we didn’t play long enough to find out for sure. We got through the first three levels in a couple of minutes and couldn’t be bothered to go any further. It’s just too boring. The only interesting aspect of the game is that it takes place in a coal mine, but that’s hardly enough to justify an entire game.

            If this glowing review has you clamoring to play, click here and have at it.
