John Bedford (Modojo): As an utterly obsessed Trials devotee, I'm always a sucker for any physics-based racer that turns up on the App Store. More often than not, what I end up with is a dollar's worth of disappointment that looks an awful lot like dodgy controls, poor engine responsiveness or just plain bad game design.
The first bit of good news is that of all the physics racers we've tried out, Offroad Legends has one of the finest engines we've experienced. Every truck, van, and lorry has a very different feel in its physics, so the articulated lorries behaving very differently as their back-end wobbles around beyond your control, and the all-terrain vehicles take the ramps with just a little too much aplomb. On these latter, you'll need to be very, very adapt at using the tilt or button controls to level out the vehicle after a leap into the unknown. 4/5
