  • Conclusion: Baja Edge of Control is not a bad game at all, it’s a very fun and challenging game at the same time. It has a hard time being classified however, most of the time it seems like a hardcore simulation but then you notice that the atmosphere and attitude of the game seems like it wants to be more of a...

  • Conclusion: Don't make the same mistake as I made: I thought this was Baja 1000 - a totally quick and easy game compared to this. If you're still unconvinced as to how terrible and boring a game Baja: Edge of Control really is, check out the TA Score for it.

  • Excerpt: Alright, I’ll come clean. When I first got this game, I thought, oh God no, it’s another off-road borefest replete with the misleadingly exciting-looking cover art. I’ve played and reviewed a few of those already, I’ll have you know (bless my heart).

  • Summary: This game is a definite “try before you buy”. If you dig the demo, you’ll probably like the real deal, so head on over to the Xbox Live Marketplace and check it out. You might find yourself sucked into the world of Baja.
  • Pros: -The first and only real offroad racing simulation game., -Lag-free multiplayer via Xbox Live., -Extremely long career mode., -Hyper realistic physics., -Simple and familiar button layout., -Traction settings help to make the game more accessible.
  • Cons: -Visuals are all over the place and tend to look odd., -Sound effects are a bit too similar for most vehicles., -Music is standard and highly generic., -Panorama isn’t practical., -Learning curve and difficulty are absolutely extreme.
