When someone mentions a racing game, you probably know what it is that you’re in for. Sleek cars, fresh asphalt, and pit crews waiting to change your tires. However, that is just one kind of racing game. Although that is representative of a large chunk of the genre, there are a few games that set themselves apart with unique settings and vehicles, such as Baja: Edge of Control.

Developed 2XL Games and published by THQ, Baja: Edge of Control is an offroad racing game where players will encounter some of the worst conditions known to man and still be asked to beat out the competition. If you think you have what it takes, then here is everything you need to know about Baja: Edge of Control.

A New Frontier

Baja: Edge of Control tasks players with racing through deserts, up steep hills, and in thick mud. These aren’t typical racing conditions, and they are by no means safe, especially when you’re going 100 miles per hour, but it does make for an exhilarating racing game.

The game practically invented an entire physics engine in order to make racing through these elements as realistic as possible. You can almost feel every bump, pebble, and dune through your controller. And with more than 100 different tracks, there are plenty of new sensations to feel and challenges to navigate at high speeds.

Choose Your Vehicle

Baja: Edge of Control has more than 160 cars for you to choose from, that range from trucks and actual off-road vehicles, to wacky things like Volkswagen Beetles with lifted suspensions to deal with the terrain. Each vehicle is unique and super fun to drive, further contributing to this game’s greatness. It even gives Need for Speed a run for its money.

As you race, you’ll also need to keep your vehicles in shape, and you can keep track of their condition and repair them with both helicopter and truck teams respectively. A busted car won’t get you to the finish line, so it’s important to stay on top of that.

Open-World Gameplay

This game also features 9 open-world maps for you to explore at your leisure, in the vehicle of your choice. Take a cruise to see the sights, or hunt for new tracks hidden throughout each map. Altogether, there are over 1000 miles of area to explore, giving you plenty of reasons to keep coming back to explore some more.

Customize Your Ride

There are also hidden jumps that can be completed as tests of skill or just for fun, as well as off-road challenges to push your limits as a racer. All of this is optional, of course, but Baja: Edge of Control is so fun that you’ll be reluctant to put it down after those credits roll. Thankfully there is plenty to do.


The game also features more than 200 authentic vehicle parts to unlock and customize your vehicles with that can fine-tune their performance.


  • So many awesome cars
  • 1000 miles of area to explore across several open-world maps
  • Incredible driving physics
