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.

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.

Baja: Edge of Control HD is a remaster that may be head-scratching at first, but once you get your hands on it, there's plenty to enjoy. Outside of some mixed texture work, the game runs and plays silky smooth. Given the game's accessible price tag, off-road racing fans certainly have a lot to enjoy. There's just something blissful about racing out in the open terrain, overlooking the land.

Overall, Baja: Edge of Control is a remaster that has held up over the years though it is kind of baffling as to why we're getting a new version in the first place.
