This is the worst racing game I have ever played. The graphics are terrible and the controls are worse. I have never seen a Baja car that you can rotate and pivot while in the air. Motorcycles and ATV's yes, but not full Baja cars. The makers of this game and the sponsors (Painless Wiring, West Coast Choppers, BF Goodwich, to name a few) should be ashamed to have their name on this game for people to see.

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.
