Plutôt fun et maniable, Off Road Challenge est un des meilleurs jeux de course de la Nintendo 64, mais ce n'est pas un jeu excellent.

Midway has successfully delivered a solid racer on the N64; fans of the original should take to this game like a duck to water. Anyone even remotely interested in off road racing should give this game a try.

Off Road Challenge est donc un petit jeu que seuls les fans de la série des Cruis'n apprécieront. Les autres préféreront attendre Top Gear Overdrive.

Off Road Challenge is te beperkt om een groot racespel te zijn. Het is een leuke game voor een beetje afleiding maar zorg er dan wel voor dat je het speelt met een maatje want in je eentje is er al snel geen hol meer aan.

We would have liked to see more courses and more trucks. Even so, the racing is fun, particularly in two-player mode. If you love the arcade Offroad, then you'll probably like this game, but most race fans will expect more than they get.

Not a whole lot to say here I'm afraid. If you got the impression that I am someone who really despises racing games, you are mistaken. In fact, I just really despise this one. I strongly recommend against even renting this title, especially considering the number of solid racing games available for the N64.

Den Entwicklern der 64-Umsetzung, Avalanche Software, ist es zwar gelungen, eine akzeptable Steuerung zu programmieren, grafisch und soundtechnisch wurde jedoch eindeutig auf Sparflamme gekocht. Der schlechte Gesamteindruck wird durch die miserablen Musik-Tracks und die peinlichen, unrealistischen Soundeffekte nur noch verstärkt.

All in all, Off Road Challenge is a flawed conversion of an arcade game that just isn't any fun at home. Anyone who is interested in this game shouldn't be.

Off Road Challenge is a poorly constructed game. So many things could have been better that would make the game more interesting. You only have 4 cars and are given an opportunity to get four special but instead of giving you one car when you beat a certain skill level you must beat them all with your mediocre car which is virtually impossible. I did not like this game.

This game, like Mike Piazza Baseball before it, has graphics and sounds, control and comes in a shiny box. Unfortunately, Mike Piazza's box is better, framerate higher, sense-of-speed more exciting and offers more diversity. Of course, since we gave Piazza the high rating of three stars, well, I suppose this sucker doesn't even deserve that. If you have way too much money on your hands and have never burned a Nintendo 64 cartridge before, we highly recommend this title.
