BAJA: Edge of Contol handles "better than 'proper' racers like Forza"

Gameplayer has gone live with a generally positive review of off-road racer BAJA, in particular praising its controls and gameplay modes.

"There's a surprisingly accomplished racer underneath BAJA's somewhat bland exterior. This isn't Xbox 360-does-MotorStorm, this is a serious racer with a serious agenda."

thats a rather bold claim, the game looks way more like an arcade race than forza

and considering every single car in forza feels different I think this reviewer may be a little too excited

the game looks solid from what I've seen, I haven't played it but I expect it to be in the 7-7.5 range

no matter how tight the controls are, this is most definitely not a next gen game

I think this guy means to say it controls "easier" than "proper" racing titles.

Better? Does this guy have any idea how much physics research and calculations are done for games like Forza or Gran Turismo?

I'd go so far as to say he's talkin' out his ass.

Decent review though, besides that point.

Exactly, is his definition of "better" really just "easier"? Because a massive amount of time is invested in these "proper" racers to make sure that the game representation resembles to actual car as closely as possible when it comes to handling, grip, sound etc etc

he talks about being kept on your toes every second becomes of the way the cars react to changes in the road.

This sounds like a refreshing change and i'm very much looking forward to it
