Hello everyone. I always enjoyed 4x4 offroad racing games and tried to find the one which would show what its like to dig into slippery muddy or dry and rocky surface with all 4 tires spinning out of control trying to get you going

Just wanted to find out your experiences with 4x4 racing titles which left most impression on you, gamers with a soft spot for offroad racing

here is what u guys thought of

Insane
Test Drive Off-Road 1234
Richard Burns Rally
4x4 Evolution 1&2
MotorM4x (good driving physics,looks good)
Pure
Dirt 2 (looks great)
SpinTires (brand new, amazing physics)

you can try Insane, from Codemasters. Still play it time to time. Capture the flag mode in multiplayer is really fun.

Insane is a good game... VERY GOOD. highly addictive. i installed it on a lot of machines on a cafe near home and sometimes play it there with friends. 4x4 evo is awesome too but pretty, pretty difficult imo.

I liked the 4x4 EVo game, but the best I have ever played was Test Drive Off-Road: Wide Open, that game was a ton of fun, free roam was quiet large, cool vehicles also.

Well rally is 4 x 4 (4WD) and it can be offroad, and you slide the cars with all wheels at the same time (4 wheel drift), you can have asphalt, gravel, mud, snow, you name it so it fits perfectly :laugh:

Slice it anyway you want, none of that mentions trucks and most of those games are closed coarse.

You can try Pure.

Its all off road quad bikes, but the ATVs are customizable and jumps are insane. You can also do sick tricks and do some trick chaining ala tony hawk. Really good fun game imo. Good reviews too.



Controls are not simmy though, but its the funfactor that counts

Pretty much all of the games I can think of are listed, but I can tell you what NOT to get: Baja Edge of Control. It sounds like a great game in theory, but its horribly bad. Its offroad alright, and you're not restricted to drive on a fixed track, but driving is so below-average, and the graphics are cancer to the eye. It just doesn't make fun.

I liked Test Drive Off-Road 3 the most. I :love: T-Rex and some of the courses you drive on. It's got a great sound track too (Eve 6, Blink 182, Diesel Boy, etc.)

Oh, and going up rocky surfaces much faster than you should be. :roll:

You talking the SNES one I would assume, that was a great game, so was the NES one.
