Summary: this game isn't all that hype. graphics are mediocre and game play is actually boring. i enjoyed playing motor storm and grid more than this game, but i must say my 5 year old enjoys this game.
Summary: I bought this game a few days ago and the first day I tried it I was very disappointed. I felt like I wasted my money. The graphics are nowhere near what a PS3 can deal out. It reminds me of PS2 graphics. There is also no ingame music while racing. You do get all the sound effects though from your vehicle as well as the competition. Well I decided to give it another go last night.
Baja - Edge of Control - Racing game for the Playstation III
6 November 2009
Excerpt: This review is for Baja – Edge of Control, an off-road driving game for the Playstation III. The concept of the game is easy, drive your vehicle around tracks as quickly as possibly, win races, progress through the game, try different tracks and win more trophies. It’s a well worn style of gaming and so there’s a lot of similar games in this genre. You start the game driving in the desert, but you progress through to other backgrounds such as woodlands and frozen lands.
Excerpt: The game is generally based on the annual Baja 1000 race that takes place in Mexico. In Edge of Contol you can choose to take part in hill climb events, rallies and races. All these events take place on tracks and courses that are much longer than the average you would expect in race games, not only are they long but some courses are treacherous which makes for a challenging drive!
Pros: Variety of vehicles and games on offer . Great multiplayer and cou4se designs
Cons: Lacks a little in audio . Not the most advanced of its genre .
Conclusion: As previously mentioned on other reviews, the graphics aint the best but as far as gameplay is concerned i quite enjoyed it, loads of different tracks vehicles and options. The racing takes a bit of getting used to, but is rewarding once you have the hang of it (handbrake into bends and clutch out to keep up corner speed is vital to getting a result) if you want an offroad racing game easy to master then go for pure or motorstorm, if you want a challenge give this a go...
Summary: Wie schon von vielen Rezensenten angemerkt ist sowohl die Grafik wie auch die Steuerung und der Fahrspass eher gering. Die Fahrzeuge bewegen sich ein bischen wie unter Wasser, träge und ohne grosse Dynamik. Man kann einfach Gas geben und fährt drauf los. Es staubt nicht, und von den (optisch sehr ausgeprägten) Fahrrillen spürt man kaum etwas. Im Endeffekt kann ein dreijähriges Kind das Spiel spielen und wäre damit sicherlich auch ganz zufrieden.
Summary: Das Spiel an sich ist nicht schlecht. Leider bleibt es aus mir unerfindlichen Gründen nach ca. 20min Spielzeit auf der PS3 einfach stehen. (Andere Spiele arbeiten einwandfei !) Daher: NICHT EMPFEHLENSWERT!
