There just isn't enough feedback to the player to get a better grasp of the necessary mechanics.
Overall this was a fun title that I enjoyed my time with.
Overpass is a mediocre off-road simulator that we appreciate for its originality, physics and difficulty. However, we notice the flaws and mistakes indicating the developer's fine job was, in fact, only half-done. What a shame.

We can't overcome obstacles and hills in off-road quads and buggies so often, but here it still wasn't any good.

Overpass is as rough as the terrain they are trying to make you traverse. Badly implemented systems, boring gameplay and a slew of technical issues make this a painful experience from start to finish.
Overpass certainly adds an interesting take on the genre, allowing for well-trodden ground to feel fresh. Unfortunately the difficulty of the game and poor handling will prevent most from making it past the tutorial.
Overpass is a double edged sword by design.
There is a lot to like about Overpass. Unfortunately, there are also a lot of issues.
GREAT - Overpass is a blast to play if you enjoy playing Gran Turismo style simulation driving games and less arcade feeling titles. I would associate this one more with Spintires: Mudrunners than any other type of game I have played. If you enjoy ATV riding in real life or have always wanted to give it a go, but can’t, this is the game for you and a very good one at that.
There's really no way to gild this filthy lily - Overpass is an infuriating and deeply unsatisfying experience which should be given a wide berth by anyone who values their sanity.
Overpass looks the part, but it lacks the physicality to allow its players to truly get to grips with its obstacle-focused racing gameplay.
Overpass is a great addition to the genre, adding a new type of challenge and will truly test the bond between man and his machine.
Overpass is a difficult, demanding, challenging and at times frustrating game but it is just as true that at the same time it is tremendously satisfying and a lot of fun. If you pass the first hours and enter its dynamics, I am sure you will not regret playing what it possibly is, and I cannot find a better definition, the "darksouls" of car simulators.

Not even fans of the genre should put themselves through this, let alone casual racer fans. Whilst it may be too niche a concept for a mainstream company, there’s a lot more that could be done with it than this terrible offering. For the mean time, if you want some decent offroad-ish racing, give Wreckfest a try instead.
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 an awkward, ornery racing game that stubbornly refuses to indulge your need for speed and instant gratification.
The developers of Overpass have put in massive efforts to make the game's value as high as a Triple-A title. Unfortunately, the expectations were way too high and it didn't really fulfill the satisfactory level of implementations. There's definitely a demands for games that require you to put in endless effort and time into, but some of the game's achievements do not really justify the time you would invest into, nor provide further encouragement to continue on. At least this game is another gem in its genre due to its rarity between other similar titles. It serves as a good influence for any follow up games that are planned to be released in the 'racing game' genre family.

Overpass isn’t a great looker; it’s only an adequate player – if that’s an accurate descriptive. Playing it for more than half an hour at most still leave you craving for something more nuanced, interesting, and far more polished. However, this is likely to be the only experience like it for quite a while.
Overpass has a neat idea at its core, but it's struggled to pull it off effectively. Surmounting treacherous terrain against the clock is sadly not as fun as it sounds, and you're more likely to get frustrated by the iffy handling and strict rules. There's the kernel of a good game here, and we don't doubt some people will enjoy overcoming this game's challenges, but a lack of polish where it matters most puts this game between a rock and a hard place.
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.
