This is an Arcade style game - not a simulation. Stop comparing it to a simulation game! I found this game very entertaining.

If you are looking for a realistic car simulation then this is not a game for you. If you are looking for a wild, crazy arcade type racing game Scores International Baja 1000 is definitely it!

It took about 30 seconds to learn the controls and the wild jumps and immense dust clouds made this game a hoot. Another great aspect of this game is that each of the different classes of cars/vehicles handle completely different, which brought a lot of variety to the game.

On the downside, the only way to even compete is to keep the booster button down most of the race. Which gets a bit old. Also, the crashes don't have enough damage, so you smash into a rock and you might see a panel get thrown off, or you might not. This was definitely a bit of a disappointment to me, since the game is more like an arcade game, I expected more destruction than the game gives.

Overall I would recommend at least renting this game to give it a try. I had it for nearly two weeks before I decided to try some other racing games.

I give this game a STRONG 6 - 6+.

I thought the racing on this game was fun and entertaining. The vehicles each responded a little different from the others which was nice. Really the only complaint I had about this game was in relation to the graphics. More detail on the vehicles and tracks would have been nice.

I played Baja Edge of Control when it came out a while back and that game really had some unike things about it and was a good game. This game is about as far away as you can get from that. It has the same idea since its Baja and everything and the idea was so much similar that Activison copied the game cover and THQ, the makers of the other Baja game ,sued them because of that. But as for this game it has about 80 vehicles and all of them have major problems with handling. The graphics arent terrible but about average. The online mode is pretty weak and boring. The story mode is pretty boring and wont keep you attached for more than 15 or so races. So if your looking at renting this game and you havnt played Baja Edge of Control, first try that game. Its MUCH better than this game and has some cool features like free mode where you can drive around and not be in a race. And then after you try out that game you prouble dont want to try this game out because its really just wasting your time on a mediocre game. Try out Baja Edge of Control.
