  1. A fairly well-paced, but fairly unadventurous racing game.
  2. The generic can't-be-arsed title says it all. It's the sort of thing you might consider buying for your Dad, should you spot it in the GBP 1.99 bin at the supermarket two days before his birthday, even though you know he doesn't really play games all that much.
  3. Ford Racing: Off Road is a throwaway title that lacks any professional refinement that’s most necessary this day and age; just because it’s a PS2 game doesn’t change the fact that this is 2008. Developers have managed to do some pretty incredible things with that system, and while we understand this wasn’t a big-budget project, the amount of exhibited effort is very low.
  4. 35
    Slowly meandering around the same few tracks with vehicles that don't really deliver a sense of power or speed just makes for a flat-out boring experience, and it's one you can pass up without consequence.
  5. It's too slow, too ugly and too pricey for what it is. [May 2008, p.84]
