Baja: Edge Of Control

Baja: Edge of Control is an off road racing videogame developed by 2XL Games for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The game gets its name from the real life Baja 1000 off-road race, on which it is based. The game is set on over 95 different tracks, including 3 different Baja 250 courses, 2 Baja 500 courses, and 1 Baja 1000 course. The game was released September 22, 2008 in North America and September 26, 2008 in Europe.

The game is targeted as an arcade off road racer, very similar to Colin McRae: Dirt and is based on endurance racing across the desert. Multiplayer options include playing other players through Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, System Link and up to 4 player split screen.

Vehicle Classes
Baja Bug Class (Class 5-1600 & Class 1/2-1600) Based on the pre-1980 Volkswagen Beetle, the Baja Bug is one of the enduring symbols of a true Baja racer. Powered by less than 80 horsepower, this is a great entry-level vehicle. A typical Baja Bug costs less than $25,000 to build and race.

Unlimited VW Class (Class 5 unlimited) One step up from the entry-level Baja Bug is the Unlimited VW class. Based on the same frame and power train as the original bug, this vehicle has substantial upgrades in both engine and suspension, making it a fun vehicle to race on smaller tracks that don't require high-speed performance.

4X4 Class (Class 3) The 4X4 class is the only four-wheel drive class found in Baja. These Vehicles are tuned for torque over acceleration and are capable of climbing very steep slopes, making them a good candidate for racing in the Hill Climb events.

Open Wheel (Class 10) The open wheel buggy class is a great mid-range performenance off-road vehicle and a popular choice among off-road race enthusiasts. These lightweight rear-engine vehicles are based on smaller 2.2 litre VTEC engines that are geared to maintain high RPMs to stay in the power band throughout the acceleration curve.

Mini Truck (Class 7) The Mini Truck class is based on popular truck brands such as the Ford Ranger and Toyota Tacoma. Capable of producing over 300 horsepower, these vehicles are an excellent choice for an off-road racer that still won't break the bank.

Fullsize Truck (Class 8) Fullsize trucks are based on some of the best-selling trucks found on the road today. Models such as the Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado continually prove themselves as viable off-road machines.

Class 1 Unlimited (Class 1) Designed and built without any restrictions on horsepower and suspension travel, the Unlimited Class 1 buggy is one of the highest-performance off-road machines in existence today. They typically cost more than 300.000 credits to build and they produce more than 600 horsepower.

Trophy Truck The Trophy truck is the king of the off-road desert race. Each truck is a one-of-a-kind custom-built machine whose cost can exceed 500.000 credits. Producing over 800 horsepower with a top speed of nearly 160 miles per hour, Trophy Trucks can negotiate the most treacherous off-road terrain with the greatest ease.
