    Keeping in mind the budget price, Rock ‘N Racing Off-Road DX is a tough one to call. It makes fair attempts at providing some variety with multiple track layouts mixed with jumps and uneven terrain but at the same time racing physics being tricky at times can make for unintended challenges. While there is likely an element of personal taste to control in the 5 vehicles, I found that the Highlander class (the first you’ll unlock) to be far superior to most everything else in terms of overall performance and handling. It may just take some tweaks but collisions are inevitable in the game and can royally screw you up, more than I’d expect. This can detract from some of the fun of the tracks that overlap themselves and that’s a shame. While there are some positives to be had in the game it’s also quirky enough that it’s tough to recommend.

    Rock ‘n Racing Off Road DX is perhaps the poorest racing game on the Switch at the moment. It has too many design flaws and its AI is too broken to find any enjoyment within its simplistic game design.

    It's a 7 for me.The spirit of 25 years ago is important in these kind of games and this game has it.

It lacks polish, but for the very low price tag I don’t regret the purchase, and intend to finish it. I always wanted a super off road remake and whilst it could have been better, it is worth spending a little cash on if you have the super off road itch and want something similar. I preferred the game that inspired it, because this feels finished and without unpolished, like a final beta. No regret buying it. Expand

I don't mind games like this one, but I cannot believe how this game's control suck....the tracks are barely playable because of the poor mechanics. It is one thing the other cars are sometimes running into wrong/all type of direction, but it is another thing not to have tight controls to avoir them. I honestly played for 10 minutes and could not continue. I then did a search to check if it was an IOS game which had been ported to the Switch or something, but no....just a plain awful game lol I thought about getting Mantis Burn Racing instead (looks 10 times better), but I did not want to pay $25. Oh well my bad... Expand

Stay clear of this game. It just released yesterday on Nintendo Switch (for $7.99) and somehow, despite it being November, 2017, it fails to have even a fraction of the depth of the 1980s arcade game it's so clearly influenced by.

    Nintendo should be ashamed of itself for even allowing this on the eShop.

    - The physics are a joke.
    - The muzak is anything but the rock music stated in the description.
    - There is no online multiplayer.
    - One can scarcely tell their car from the others on a 65-inch television.
    - There are no power-ups, no upgrades, no obstacles.
    - There are no sound-effects. Not even the sound of your car's engine.

    The game is good for one thing though. It's taught me to never, EVER, buy another game without checking Metacritic first.

Well the AI has issues, where they stop in middle of the track, and they just sit there. Unless if you can crash into them and get them back into the race. On the figure 8 track, the AI vehicles spin in a circle and also stops in the middle of the track. I wish this game was like the old days.

    This is a terrible game, and it isn't like the game super off road for SNES. Where you can collect the nitrous and money bags, and upgrade your vehicles, to beat the AI.

    I would definitely give it a 1 in my opinion. Super off road was way better than this game. Now if you as the developer created this game, you should picked up the game for research by playing the old game of super off road, and start working on a better one. But at least since I got the cars and the tracks. I just play this game with a friend or family member most of the time, but multiplayer of the game does get boring. And at least I got a cheaper good deal on the e shop, than the normal price from the E shop. I just keep an eye on the cheap deals for the games. Then paying normal prices. But I always view the reviews and screenshots. And I do agree with all of the reviewers that is reviewing this game and I do support what gamers want.

    And that is from my opinion.

    Sometimes I laugh at the AI cars and to know how horrible the game is, and how the AI cars don't respond to the race, and I think the developer was in a rush to get the game into the market. I kind of feel disappointed for the game though.

    This game sucks so bad, its hard to explain.

    The AI is so horrible that half the cars end up running the track in the wrong direction.
    This game sucks so bad, its hard to explain.

    The AI is so horrible that half the cars end up running the track in the wrong direction. Every race, you will have accidents caused by wrong way drivers.

    Then, the cars... well, you only get black cars. All other colors? Not selectable. What really rocks about black is that it makes it quite impossible to see what direction your car is going. Add the fact that physics (not really physics but ya) are horrible, bouncy walls, no suspension, jumps are stupid, drifting is done by pressing brake and gas at the same time.

    The only good thing is the tracks don't look bad, this compensates the fact cars are made using 5 polygons each.

    Horrible.
