  • Summary: In Overpass, the player takes control of powerful buggies and quads, scrabbling across extreme tracks and very hazardous terrain.

This simulation, unique in its genre, pits the player against craggy slopes and puts their cool-headedness to the test throughout technical obstacle courses along wilderness tracks.
    Overpass's realistic physics engine requires you to keep precise and meticulous control of your speed and acceleration or you risk losing your grip and failing your crossing. You'll need to master the technical characteristics of official reproductions of buggies and quads from iconic brands such as Yamaha, Suzuki or Arctic Cat. Differential locking, 2 or 4 drive wheels, transmission type: the player has been given all the tools they need to discover the real vehicle options that will let them adapt their driving to the terrain.
    The Career mode lets you manage your buggies and quads and choose the one best adapted to each track and terrain type in order to win the competition and attract sponsors. In multi-player mode, you'll need to know and master the slightest detail of each track in order to post the best times and show that you are truly the master of off-roading!

    I have raced many a game but Overpass brings something new and unique to the racing genre. If you have a FFB wheel give this game a try. If not, only off-road racing fanatics will find something here to keep them coming back.

    OVERPASS is a technical, adventurous off-road, where the skill lies more in knowing the terrain than in sinking on the accelerator. One of a kind, dirty and fun, albeit with some technical burrs.

    When it’s fun it can be really fun, but when it’s bad it can be really frustrating. Luckily all the issues I have with it are easily fixable in later updates, whether they actually do it or not remains to be seen. But for now the overall Overpass experience is generally just okay to me. It’s a great, challenging game that’s bogged down by bugs, a lack of content and questionable game design at times.

    Overpass’s unique physics system and emphasis on balance might be enough to win over the most dedicated of off-road racing fans, but its shallow progression systems and monotonous gameplay loop greatly limit its appeal.

    Overpass is for a certain type of sadist, and it’s been awhile since a game made me want to stop playing it as quickly as possible. It might have its polish and intent, but the mechanics they serve are frustrating. Perhaps everything I mention makes the game all the more interesting, a game that isn’t for noobs like me and something that would sit comfortably between Surgeon Simulator or Getting Over It. But this makes for a niche game that will bug anyone else. I get the appeal, but it’s simply not fun.

    Not that bad. Great might have said how dare you?) But glad i did. Looked a bit meh on youtube gameplays, but like many games plays betterNot that bad. Great might have said how dare you?) But glad i did. Looked a bit meh on youtube gameplays, but like many games plays better than expected from watching.
    As magazines already said might be a little bit frustrating, even as the "tutorial" has some quite ugly zones, but once you get it it gets fun, a challenge to bypass these zones in later stages too.
    Graphics might not be 2020 in fullhd but its ok, gameplay is smooth, challenging, sometimes hard, but not that frustrating that you woulndt go on giving it a try.
    Carreer overview from what i already saw has stages for some hours to play.
    Sadly the music is only in menüs, no radio/soundtrack while driving.
