I would rate this game lower but my younger boys seem to really enjoy it. I do agree with others that the steering is a bit too sensitive. Unless you're old enough to drive a real car, it's just natural to over-steer. Over-steering just doesn't work in this game. Overall, I am not impressed with this game.

I DON'T THINK I HAD ANY FUN AT ALL PLAYING THIS GAME. THE CONCEPT IS GOOD BUT THE GAME PLAY IS HORRIBLE. SOUND FX ARE TERRIBLE AND THE CONTROLS ARE WAY TOO SENSITIVE. GRAPHICS ARE BETTER THAN CONSPIRACY'S OTHER GAMES BUT STILL ARN'T TOP NOTCH.
This game was pretty bad, the steering was awful. Supposedly to steer you would move the remote from side to side, but only actually worked part of the time. Unlike other games which have alternate controls in case you had trouble, this game did not. Even those who are good with the wiimote would have a difficult time not dying, getting stuck in rocks, and being able to drive straight. We played it ten minutes and sent it back, and we love "Hot Wheels Beat That!" in all it's cheesiness...so it's not a game snob thing...Offroad Extreme is just simply unplayable.
