  1. The game plays very well, I love the concept, the options are extensive, set up consoles are easy to use, the actual driving is quite realistic, the vehicle graphics are well above the average, and the replay value is very high.
  2. For those who like the unique challenge of timed racing and the strategies that off-road rallies require, Screamer 4X4 is a must have.
  3. One of the best off-roading simulation games available on the market today.
  4. It is an unforgiving and sometimes treacherously authentic game that minimizes the importance of top speed and accentuates such real world concepts as torque, grip, gravity and four-point suspension...Simply too intriguing to ignore completely.
  5. Call me a mullet-wearing redneck, but I prefer my off-road action a little more exciting. [May 2002, p.77]

    The lack of visible competitors in the single-player modes, combined with the relatively slow pace, can make the game a dull affair. There's just too little sense of speed, danger, or excitement, and that bodes ill for a racing game.

    Above all - realistic game tactics.

    Great game once you found out how to configure the game controller and the cheat code.

    The game is extremely realistic, and incorporates the finest in offroad vehicles...Unlike your typical offroad games, this one actually brings realistic situations into play, and isn't all about speed. Ignorant people may see this as boring, but to all of us hard-core wheelers, its a great escape while our real 4x4s are in the shop! Full Review »
