Baja is about as middle of the road as remasters get. While it's great to see Nordic paying attention to its stable of dormant THQ properties, exhuming an average racing game from 2008 seems a tad misguided. Baja hasn't aged particularly well, but it's far from bad and there's still some fun to be had taking to the track. You just have to question why this remaster even exists.

This is a new oportunity to enjoy BAJA: Edge of Control after almost ten years from its release. However, even though this is a remastered version, the games still looks too old and lacks the functions that other racing games have.

I had fun. I love off-road racing games and this one just scratched that itch. The track diversity is nice, I just wish it didn't turn into such a grind as the game went on.

As Baja can hardly be called a beloved classic, it's an odd choice for the remaster treatment, never managing to feel anything more than a decade-old racer. Who says remasters should be reserved for the cream of the crop though?
