What you've got here is a fairly well-paced, but fairly unadventurous racing game. There's nothing intrinsically wrong with it - aside from the rather pointless damage system - but in an era of video gaming where the processing power is increasing exponentially, and everyone expects just that little bit more from their games, for a racer to really do well it needs to do something to distinguish itself from the competition.
The Burnout series has its crashes, the Gran Turismo guys have their quite scary, attention to detail, Need For Speed has police chases... Off Road has cars that look like Land Rovers and Fords, but don't actually behave like the real thing, some inoffensive gameplay, and not much else. It does have a budget price tag though, so it's worth a look if you don't set your expectations too high and just want a simple, easy-to-get-into racer to keep you occupied while you wait for something better to come along. 6/10
