  • Summary: 4x4 Evolution takes gamers for a rough ride through 15 off-road courses, each with its own distinctive design, music score, and difficulty level. In addition to contending with the other vehicles, you'll face challenges such as gates, trees, and tractors in junkyards or oncoming traffic in construction zones. Win cash in a series of off-road races to upgrade your truck. You can even stop, rewind, and view an entire race again from multiple camera angles and different racers' perspectives. Expand

    It might not strike anyone as exceptional, but with real-world car details, challenging A.I., and a nice upgrade system, 4x4 Evolution is worth checking out, especially if you’re an SUV fanatic in real life.
  2. The soundtrack ranks as one of the most impressive to date. Mixing bass-thumping hip-hop grooves with epic, tension-building in-race vibes, it's well worth cranking up the volume for a fully engrossing driving experience.
  3. A great-looking simulation but only the hardest of the hardcore are going to be able to get into this game, let alone be able to advance very far.
  4. Awful sound, and graphics (although mostly sharp) that were contrived and dull, 4x4 Evo isn't nearly as technically sound as it should've been.
  5. The game’s lack of realism (your cars can’t get damaged or dirty) takes away from that devilish feeling that you’re doing something naughty with the family car.
  6. 50
    Not my cup of tea. But even if 4x4 Evo were my bag, the gameplay itself is just not fun. The driving itself is slow, jerky, simplistic, and mundane. It's dull. If it weren't for the spectacularly lengthy career mode, with its oogles of parts, then the game would have received an even lower score.
  7. The racing environments suffer from the PlayStation 2's notorious texture limitations.
