Well playing Baja: Edge of Control, and Scores International Baja 1000 right after each other, I found a few surprising facts. Expecting EOC to be the better game it wasn't. Scores had better graphics, better music, and better game play. With Motorstorm being a huge hit, everybody's expecting more. Truth is, none are coming even close. This contains the boost and same game play but fails short. A very good game nonetheless, and definitely a game for the hardcore off roader.

What would sound like a lot of fun and a great simulation of a great race turns out to be a very poor execution for a video game. It is clear that the designers put no effort in creating a unique and fun experience that would give the sensation of being in a Baja race. The controls are flaky and unnatural, the graphics are weak and lack any detail, the sound is static and boring and the gameplay is repetitive and unchallenging. It feels like the whole game was made on a $5 budget. It's shame to have the Baja name even associated with this.
