Critic Reviews for Baja: Edge of Control HD

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.

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.

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?

BAJA: Edge of Control HD offers a different bet to the players who enjoys driving games by offering a category rarely used in video games. We have to mention its great duration because if the game gets you caught it will keep you glued to the control for many hours, being this the biggest and almost unique incentive that enjoys the game.
