the game is an excellent rendition of real world driving conditions in baja... the only complaint i can put forth is the Hill Climb races are the most frustrating and horrific events i've ever experienced until you figure out the perfect combination of clutch, gas and break, for every single track. The point to point, circuit and open class races are where the game gets fun. the graphics are slightly out dated, but if your not a graphics freak/moron you'll be able to truly appriciate the games attention to detail... the shock valve, spring rate, and shift point adjustments made me feel like i was truly working on my own project truck... which is good and bad because honestly im tired of working on the one in my back yard. however, once you get your ride tuned in the game, the experience is astounding. if your looking for a game which takes a little patience, and may remind you of gran turismo with dirt, then this is your one stop shop for one of the best gaming experiences available on the PS3, garunteed weeks of entertainment. The 1000 is where the game truly shines... the first time you race that on your tuned Trophy, you'll never want to go back to Gran Turismo again.

Well, I first have to say that this game is for the true enthusiast of the sport. That being said, hopefully you will give this game a chance. This game hits the nail right on the head if you are looking for that perfect game that doesn't have the overdone "nitro power-ups" and "health packs" and so on. I believe the reviews are not great because people haven't actually experienced desert racing. Being raised in that environment, I would say that this game is dead on.

It does have it's downfalls though; inconsistent frame rate (aka the video jumps a little when around lots of vehicles/plants) and, more of a personal flaw, no cockpit view.

These flaws are belittled by the incredibly large landscapes, breath-taking skies, and beautiful materials.

On top of that, the detail in the vehicles matches every other aspect of the game.

All the detail that went into this game really shines through.

So, definitely try this game for yourself and form your own opinion.
