UGO writes: "For offroad racing fans 2XL Games' Baja: Edge of Control, published by THQ for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles, is either going to come as a godsend or as a massive disappointment. A brutally difficult, highly technical alternative to the just-released Pure, Baja at once frustrates and impresses with its seemingly bottomless depth. After spending hours at play reviewing the game, we can't say that the experience was really a pleasurable one. If technical racing games aren't your thing then move along. If, on the other hand, you understand the nuances of tuning an offroad racer's springs, shocks and other components, Edge of Control may just offer exactly what you've been looking for.
Baja: Edge of Control, much like the real world's Baja 1000 race, is all about testing the player's endurance. Rather than restricting this to a single lengthy race however, Edge of Control lays on pressures on multiple fronts, from a dizzying number of vehicle classes and race types to an immaculately detailed tuning mechanic. Class-specific upgrades come in multiple flavors across all of the expected categories, including engine, power train, suspension, brakes, weight and so on."
