Baja: Edge of Control

  • Conclusion: Is Baja: Edge of Control as good a racing game as Gran Turismo 5? In my opinion, absolutely, but in a completely different way. The two games complement each other more than they draw comparison. It all boils down to preference, really, but there’s no question that Baja is the Gran Turismo of off-road racing.

  • Excerpt: Ever since mankind invented the wheel, he has feverishly found ways to push it, and the attached vehicle, to the limit. What better way to do that than with the Baja 1000? This tumultuous race, pitting racers against Mother Nature’s uglier side, gives wannabe stunt-devils the chance to risk life and limb for the checkered flag. This is what Baja: Edge of Control tries to replicate, but should you strap yourself in for the ride or leave it in the dust?

  • Conclusion: When your vehicle is in need of some mechanic love, your options will vary according to the type of event in which you're competing. Circuit races incorporate repair stops into their designs where, by stopping for just a few seconds, you can get repairs carried out without losing too much time. During rally events, repairs come courtesy of a helicopter that can be seen flying overhead at all times.
  • Pros: Great course designs, Plenty of vehicle and event variety, Split-screen support for up to four players.
  • Cons: The easy difficulty setting is a lie, Career mode lacks depth, Looks awful, Inconsistent frame rate.
