I have been playing games the past 20 years. I like racing games best. This game is leaps and bounds above the rest. Put yourself in the driver's seat the the POV control, turn up the volume and look out! As someone who has been off-road for 25 years, this game is accurate down to the last pixel. Unbelievable that others rate is any less than perfect. You will not be disappointed!!

Going off road is the name of the race here in Baja 1000. You start off with a choice of a few motorcycles and ATVs, but as you progress, you unlock other off road vehicles that total more than 80.
The vehicles and graphics look fine, but they don't really raise the bar for Wii games.
To counteract the massive vehicle list, the makers of Scores International: Baja 1000 limit the number of tracks to race on. They limit them a lot.
You get only eight tracks - I repeat you get only eight tracks. The game tries to stretch out the measly track choice by making you race through them with different vehicles, using the mirror mode, and making several objectives, all of which boil down to the same one: get to the finish line as fast as you can.
Making this task very hard is the controls. No matter which vehicle I picked, it fishtailed way too much; going around turns was a exercise in frustration. Once in a fishtail, getting out was extremely hard to do. This caused me to lose races.
And you guess it; the AI doesn't have this problem; AI drivers can go around corners with ease.
Scores International: Baja 1000 needed better controls, less vehicles and much, more tracks. Skip it.
