2xl2XL Games' much anticipated ATV game was released into the App Store tonight for $7.99.

The game represents 2XL's followup title to the technically impressive 2XL Supercross and seems to share the same graphics engine. Beyond moving to ATV's, however, 2XL has added a lot of content to this new title, including freestyle levels, career mode, local multiplayer, online leaderboards and more.

The game offers tilt controls with a large number of customizable settings, though the default controls seemed to work reasonably well on our first few spins around the track.

The game shares the same impressive graphics seen in the original 2XL Supercross and are well demonstrated in this hands-on video provided by the developers.

Superficially, the biggest addition to the game is a full career mode that was conspicuously absent from their freshman iPhone release. 2XL ATV Offroad offers 16 ATV Supercross and Outdoor Nationals tracks and 2 Freestyle levels, and 3 levels of difficulty.

We'll be able to spend some more time with the title now that it's been released. Early adopters can share their impressions in our forums.

    Impressive that they have kept 2Xl motocross the same $7.99 despite the significantly greater offerings of this game. Are dirt bikes alone worth the "premium" price?

    • LBG

      Yep, 2 wheels are worth the premium price IMO.
      As I've always said: "The number of wheels on your vehicle is inversely proportional to your IQ".
      Bikes > cars/other vehicles.
      :P

    IMO this isn't worth the price tag the handling is horrible 2xl supercross was alot better...2xl shouldve just added a career to their first game instead of making a whole new game. Tricks are fun but can't save the game for me.

    • http://www.squarezerostudio.com squarezero

      2xl Supercross does not handle better than ATV -- that's just silly. ATV is a much better game in every possible way. I too would have love it if they'd given Supercross the same treatment (simply because I much prefer to race motorcycles than ATV), but as a separate game ATV is very impressive.

      • Micah

        Yea I prefer racing dirtbikes alot more which is why I don't care for this game too much the atvs are alot wider which makes the inside passes alot harder.

    • Cory Gillmore

      You are completely insane. Not worth $8? Wow....

    Hmmm.. Can they release a $1.00 app that's just the loading pic? I think that's all I need. :)

      It's possible you haven't explored the app store much :D

    yeah i was haning for this and picking up my 3gs a couple of days ago.
    So it was only fit i got it. THe grfx are not ps2 or psp in any way shape or form.

    • Dimitris

      Yeah I was sure about that.
      I think people who say that some iPhone games have ps2 psp graphics haven't actually played any psp games recently, or even worse at all.
      I would have liked to see some really amazing graphically rich games on the iphone but it still hasn't happened yet.
      Maybe in the next revision?

      • Robert M.

        I've had the PSP since 2005 and I've played maybe a hundred games on it. The graphics aren't better then the psp but they are damn close.

      • http://www.squarezerostudio.com squarezero

        As has been stated over and over again, the lack of "PSP graphics" (whatever that means) on the iPhone 3Gs has nothing to do with technical limitations and everything to do with economics -- when we start paying console prices, we'll start seeing console graphics. That said, I can think of more than a few PSP games that wished they looked as good as 2XL ATV (Burnout for one). The thing about the PSP is, there's so much ghosting in the screen (at least on the 1000) that even the best looking games look kind of unpleasant, at least to my eyes.

      • Robert M.

        I never thought about it that way but that makes a ton of sense. Thanks!

    Supercross needs a content update to match this. I like to dream, yes I know.

    I've published a multiplayer (!!!) demo at youtube.com/watch?v=IFVuRRLUgFA (sorry, no direct, clickable link because it wouldn't be shown right away because of the need to wait for moderation)

    (Also see my Multiplayer bible, which, lately, has received a lot of other, similar demo videos - see http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?p=419463 )

      BTW, as usual, the 3G S is on the left (when viewed in Portrait mode, bottom) and the 3G is on the right (top). As you can (will – the HD version is still being processed by YouTube and, currently – 12:56 CET –, only the LD version is available) see, the 3G has no speed problems at all – the game plays wonderfully fast on the 3G.

    Would have been an easy purchase for me had global multiplayer been included. But now it's relegated to the price drop wish list.

  • dumas1000

    There has never been a price drop on their first game, 2XL Supercross, which has been out for many many months. Rest assured, their will be no price drop on ATV Offroad. You can either buy it or not, but don't bother placing into onto some price drop wish list. If you do, you're wasting your time.

    No global mutiplayer? Ehhh ill wait for a price drop. But probably dont need. I already have supercriss just add2 more wheels

    • http://www.squarezerostudio.com squarezero

      Supercross is a tech demo. ATV is a real game (though I also would love it if it had online multiplayer). It's not just a matter of adding a couple of wheels.

    • PeterM11

      Yeah and I doubt there will be a price drop in this lifetime. Supercross is still at the starting price.

    I'm sure they wouldve added real multiplayer had it been possible. None of the big racing games have online multiplayer. Well, there are a few like that Kokato cart racing or whatever it's called. But most iPhone games don't have it. I wonder why that is.

    If it had global multiplayer I'd get buy it. I'd rather have that in Supercross, though.

    SGN's F.A.S.T. has global multiplayer (and is really fun). F.A.S.T. is a combat jet flight sim, but it tells me it should at least be possible. F.A.S.T.'s multiplayer modes are either 1 vs 1 or 2 vs 2 in quick skirmishes.

      I hated F.A.S.T so much- its so hard and boring
