    Oooooooh, dudes! This game is just friggin awesome, lemme tell you why!

    The sand, the dirt, the locales, this game has just everything for the real rally enthousiast! You can even Free ride in it, with really hundreds of kilometers to explore. You can play from lonely rookie to the big prof and compete in the BAJA 1000 class (and believe me, this one is big!) Controls are very simple to understand, loads of goodies to earn and to tweak for your car/sandbuggy. More than 390 things to unlock and to combine for it! :|

    But wait, there is more! Real life footage is used in the game, like just before the menu appears and some very nice movies to unlock. OK, there are not so much, but it's this or nothing. And the quality of those vids are of DVD quality!!!!!

    But are there also bad sides on this game, sorry... yes. There is no night in this game. The sun will never set (strangely!) and the AI of the cars are a bit... well... ROUGH! And the deserts in this game are a bit dull. OK, you can jump for miles over sanddunes but hey... a few more brushes please!

    Also in the Nevada section they have 'planted' a bit of Las Vegas in it. OK, Nevada + Las Vegas = cool! But come ON! A few more buildings, allright? It's kinda empty there, not just 3 small hotels and that's it -- LV must be bigger than that.

    Set aside those things and you have a very great rally game for a super low price!

    But beware: it is possible to put in your own music from your HD of the 360. The normal music of the game gets a bit tedious after a while! (believe me!)

    GRAPHICS: (Y)(Y)(Y)(Y)(Y)(Y)(Y)
    MUSIC: (Y)(Y)(Y)(Y)(Y) (After 20 minutes listening to it: (Y)(Y)(Y))
    REPLAY VALUE: (Y)(Y)(Y)(Y)(Y)(Y)(Y)

    Can’t honestly say I’ve heard much about this game but from reading your review I think it’s something I might go check out. It sounds like it could be something I will enjoy. Thanks!

    Glad to see you gave the thanks after all InsaneNutter. This game looks pretty decent but I don't think any off-road game can beat that of Dirt.
