The crew at ATKingdom have been around for quite awhile (since 1997) and have succeeded in building probably the biggest (take a look at those numbers up top--wow!) and one of the most widely recognized websites in amateur porn. These guys specialize in offering up a truly jaw-dropping amount of softcore and hardcore photo and video content containing hot young (18 to 20 year old) models. ATKingdom has become so large and so popular that they've even created a number of spin-off type sites (Galleria is the original ATKingdom website, I believe) including ATK Natural & Hairy, ATK Exotics, and ATK Premium. All of those sites have been reviewed here at QAP, so feel free to check them out. We've got quite a bit of ground to cover here, so let's dive right into ATK Galleria and check things out.
The ATK Galleria members area looks very clean and relatively straight-forward, albeit a bit dated. Below the title graphic, there's a welcome message, a nice looking graphic, and a vertical button menu linking to the content of the site. If the cuties in the graphic are representative of the chicks inside, this should be a fun review. One thing I found confusing right off were some thumbnail links on the main page that I *thought* were links to latest updates to ATK Galleria, but actually were ads for the other sites in the ATKingdom universe (Hairy, Exotics, Premium, etc.). There are also some ads linked up in the actual main menu of the site and an entire Links section and Video Store are there as well, so watch out for those if you're not looking to buy anything. You may have to click around a bit to familiarize yourself with where the actual content is and where it's not because of these lurking ad areas. One good thing that seems to crop up quite a bit are customer/tech support links and encouraging words to email the site and let them know what you would like to see more of on the site, so that's cool. Anyhow, let's move on and check things out more closely.
As I mentioned, there's an absolutely enormous amount of content to see here at ATK Galleria and it may take you a little while to figure out what you want to see and how you can find it. There are a few ways you can get started. Of course, you can jump right into the Photo Galleries link which divides all of the ATK galleries into two categories: Hardcore and Softcore. From there it will take you a few clicks to actually see some photos. First, you'll click on a Softcore Gallery #, then a category within that softcore gallery, then on a particular model's thumbnail, and then finally you'll be at the normal thumbnail gallery of enlargable pics you're used to seeing. I guess the multiple clicking is partially the curse of having a shitload of content---can't really complain about that. In addition to this more direct approach, there's a Model Index button (this directory also appears at the top of the Photo and Video pages as well) that lists all of the available girls alphabetically with thumbnail headshots. Pick a chick that catches your eye and get started. You can also use the handy dandy search engine provided here to scour the site and find what you're looking for. It looks like a relatively advanced search tool, allowing you to sort models based on a large amount of parameters from the typical name, age, hair color, and breast size to more arcane stuff like whether they wear braces or glasses, smoke, or have freckles. You can also do a second step which cross references that search with various categories within the Hardcore and Softcore divisions like lingerie, uniforms, blowjobs, and water sports. Pretty cool. Alternatively to all of this, there's also a Latest Updates link, but again the thumbnail ads to the other ATK sites are at the top of the page which confused me a bit at first. If you scroll down to the bottom of the page though, there is a big table listing and linking to all of the latest updates to the site going back a little over a month. Incidentally, ATK Galleria has an extremely impressive update schedule: they add something to the site on a daily basis, and each individual daily update consists of multiple galleries or multiple videos (and when I say multiple I mean like 20-50!).
Ok, enough about the navigational aspects, let's check out the actual content. ATK Galleria offers up a vast amount of pics (over 1,500,000!!!) of 2,000+ models snapped by a large variety of photographers. I won't say that the content here is placing quantity over quality necessarily, but it's clear going in that one of the biggest perks of being a member is the sheer volume of pics and vids you are able to access. Size-wise, the photos looked good. I didn't find any small pics, in fact, most of the photos I checked out were nice and large at around 600 x 900 or 682 x 1024 or 1000 x 1500 in size. The quality was very good, nothing absolutely earth-shattering, but consistently very good. The more recent images look particular look quite nice...clear and crisp. The photos at ATK Galleria are all snapped by professional photographers (it looks like most of the time they're even credited somewhere on the actual pic) so you can expect the photos to look pretty nice. I should also mention that each set is available for download in zip format, if you so choose. To be honest, I'm not sure if all of the photosets are exclusive to ATK Galleria or not. The style of the pics was familiar to me, and I did recognize a few of the models, but I can't be sure one way or the other. I think it's probably a good bet that the pics here are a mix of non-exclusive and exclusive material, if that makes any difference to you.
Subject-wise the pics deliver up a wide array of young hot amateur girls for you to check out. Obviously, with this many models posing in this many pics, you're bound to find quite a few girls you'll want to take a look at. All types of hair color, body build, etc. are represented here as the search engine options clearly illustrate. Within the broad Softcore section, there are various sub-categories including Lingerie, Coeds, Uniforms, Nudism (basically nudity outdoors), and Upskirt/Panties, to give you an idea of what you'll be able to see the models getting into. In the Hardcore galleries, you've got Foot Fetish (footjobs as well as solo stuff), Masturbation (with and without toys), Watersports, Experimental Coeds (girl-girl action), Action (boy-girl sex), and BlowJobs. These categories should hopefully give you a relatively good idea of the variety of material you'll be able to find in the ATK photo galleries.
The Movie Galleries section is enormous as well with 6,000+ videos to check out. The video area isn't as complex clicking-wise to surf through, although I did notice that you have to re-enter your password to access the area from the main menu. Anyhow, after selecting a Movie Gallery # from the long list on the main video page, you'll be taken to a listing of video clips, most with preview thumbnails or at least the headshot of the model involved. There's also typically a short keyword type of description beneath each one to give you some idea of what sort of action you'll see. These are the actual movies, so click away and enjoy---the videos here are both downloadable and streamable, whatever your pleasure. It looks like the early stuff is in Real Media format, the middle of the archive contains MPG's and then the more recent clips give you a choice of WMV and MOV. The earlier stuff is streamable and downloadable while the more recent clips look to be download only. The quality of the vids varies depending on the age of the update. The older vids look just average...nothing unwatchable, but still pretty pixelated (definitely nothing even close to DVD quality here). The newer WMV's bump things up considerably quality-wise, weighing in at 640 x 480 at 1300K and looking very nice even when enlarged to full-screen resolution.
The videos at ATK Galleria aren't really organized in any fashion (at least that I could see); there's hardcore and softcore stuff mixed throughout. On one page I saw everything from an interview, striptease, and masturbation to girl-girl fucking with a strap-on, blowjobs, and boy-girl fucking. I did notice that some of the clips are straight action and others are more of a behind the scenes at a photoshoot sort of thing. So there's a little bit of everything here it seems. Anyhow, I'd say unless you just want to randomly page through 118 video galleries (each with multiple videos inside), you might want to try the Model Directory or the search engine feature to make finding what you're looking for a little easier.
When it comes to sheer volume of amateur coed content, ATK Galleria is one of, if not *the*, best site on the net. Giving these guys a 10/10 for quantity is sort of like saying John Holmes' penis was just slightly larger than average. The picture quality here is very nice and the photos typically weigh in at a large 692 x 1024 or 1000 x 1500. The quality of models here is high as well, with some real cuties gracing ATKingdom's virtual pages. Video quality is just average at times (the newer vids look just fine though), but the real draw here is the mountain of content these guys throw at you. I mean, over 1.5 million pictures, sheesh! To me, ATK Galleria is the type of site that any fan of amateur porn (especially if you enjoy coeds) should be a member of at least once. So, take a look at the samples and see what you think, then have fun checking out this larger-than-life, must-see amateur megasite!
