Dirt bikes and off-road vehicles compete on mud, sand, and asphalt in MX vs. ATV: Untamed. The sequel to 2005's MX vs. ATV Unleashed features two modes spanning multiple events: X-Cross and Championship. The former involves advancing through four racing divisions while competing in four distinct events. The latter is a six-week tournament that involves earning points in an attempt to finish first overall. Also included in the Wii version of MX vs. ATV: Untamed is a Custom Events option that lets players create their own tournament or race series. Available formats include Supercross, Supermoto, Opencross, Freestyle, Waypoint, Outdoor Nationals, and Freeride. Multiple control configurations allow support for the Wii Remote by itself, the Classic Controller, and a combination of the Wii Remote and Wii Nunchuk.
As in previous games in the series, players can "preload" jumps and perform an assortment of tricks and stunts while in the air. Players can also perfect their stunt skills in the Ski Jump or Hill Climb mini-games. A choice of 250cc and 500cc bikes, ATVs, and vehicles such as a monster truck, sand rail, and dune buggy can be purchased or customized with the money earned from competition. Online support is also included for up to eight players, or nearby friends can compete via split-screen display. Eight professional racers are available to play as or against, from Ricky Carmichael and Davi Millsaps to Kory Ellis and Dana Creech. Both the PlayStation 2 and Wii versions were developed by Incinerator Studios, whose previous racing credits include Cars and Cars: Mater-National Championship on Wii. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
