Jeremy McGrath Offroad – Review (Xbox 360/PS3)
7 September 2013
Excerpt: Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad is the latest entry into the long line of Jeremy McGrath sponsored video games from back at the start of the millenium. Instead of dishing out the dirt on his famous Supercross race bikes, this time around we’re reving up our engines with 4 wheel trucks of frenzy. This game is currently available on the Xbox Marketplace for 800 MSP and from the PSN for $9.99 (It is currently not available to European PSN users).
Excerpt: How many racing games out there look really good? How many of them feel good as well? I have found in Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. The Xbox 360 version was used for this home console review. This game looks really nice, and plays really nice. That combination can be difficult to find.
Summary: " Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad " is a real mixed bag. It has some fun moments to be had but the overall lack of content and inconsistent game modes mean that this is one that proves hard to recommend.
Review: Jeremy McGrath's Offroad (Microsoft Xbox 360)
7 September 2012
Excerpt: You might remember Jeremy McGrath as the guy who excelled in the sport of motorcross and brought us a couple of terrible motorcross games with his name in the title for the Playstation and Playstation 2. If you don’t remember this, then that’s probably for the better as those games faded into obscurity and Jeremy McGrath has moved on to a different hobby, the competitive events of offroad racing.
Conclusion: Overall this is not a bad game and i am giving it 4 out of 5 start for the simple reason that it definately feels like an arcade driving game that is enjoyable, wish the achievements would have been a bit better, but hopefully if DLC ever comes out it will be more challenging. If you liked Baja edge of control, then you will like this and btw make sure you turnoff help from Jeremy McGrath as he sounds cheesy and it gets irritating in between load times him giving you...
Conclusion: Sound design isn’t any better, with cars and trucks sounding more like lawnmowers. The soundtrack is also forgettable, but what isn’t is Jeremy McGrath appearing every few seconds on the menu and loading screen to give you ‘tips and tricks’. These can be helpful the first time you hear them, but there are so few variations in what he is saying, after a while you learn to mute the television every time you return to a menu or begin to load your next race.
Summary: Visually this game surpasses many retail racers that are out there. The game play is simple for anyone to pick up no matter what your gaming experience has been. The easy difficulty is perfect for new gamers or younger gamers to play. If you are looking for a family friendly racing experience this game is perfect for you. If you are looking for a simple simulation racing game, this game even works.
Conclusion: Unfortunately, this game is difficult to recommend to racing fans out there. While there was plenty of potential with lots of choices for different racing styles, there were too many mechanics that got in the way of just enjoying this game. With a number of superior racing titles on the market, there are more attractive options out there. With a little more time, this could have impressed even the most hardcore racing fans, but unfortunately, it ultimately falls short.
Excerpt: The Live Arcade has some great race games, but the selection of offroad style games is limited. But now we have Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad, a game that promises a realism based experience, upgrade system, and depth in track and vehicle selection. I was impressed by the game as soon as I started the first race, as this is a slick, polished game. The visuals look great for an arcade title and the controls felt excellent.
