The wilderness is your playground for 13 licensed trucks such as Hummer, Dodge T-Rex, Ford Bronco, and more. Avoid rockslides, waterfalls, and volcanoes as you tear up three countrysides--each featuring over 10 races and events. Speed through checkpoints in three gameplay modes--Circuit, A-B, and Blitz--against tough competition on rough terrain. The road to off-road supremacy goes through towering jumps, high-speed trucks, and shortcuts. Collapse

  1. The pitch control (sounds like a flight sim, but when you are airborne, that’s what it feels like) is a nice touch, and coupled with solid graphics and sterling sound, makes this a solid driving simulation.)
  2. What I get out of this game is just a fun time. I have this thing about freedom in a game and I would be happy with just the free roam mode this title offers.

    Does offer gameplay that lives up to its name, but should have taken cues from the Wide Open in the title and made the total package just a little bit bigger.
  4. Even if you bump into another car, you always seem to be the one who takes the force of the impact while the opponent carries on. Needless to say, I had a few words to scream each time this happened.
  5. Excellent physics and suspension, aggressive opponents and humongous and well-planned environments give a bit of shine to a game that is otherwise strictly last generation.
  6. All of the problems the off-road games have experienced in the past are as visible in this version as a Hummer with its high beams on.
