A playthrough of Tradewest’s 1993 Super NES 3D off-road racing game, Super Off Road: The Baja.
Played through on the Intermediate difficulty level. This really is a pretty impressive looking game when you consider that it relied on the stock SNES hardware to generate its graphics.
The game is alright, but it’s pretty short and it can get irritating that half the time the 3D effects make it virtually impossible to tell which way the road will turn when you get over a hill. On the plus side, there’s little else like a digitzed voice screaming “Arriba!” at you every time you go over a hill while using the nitro boost. Or smashing a cow, being penalized for $10k, and hearing it scream like a person as its chunks run across your windscreen.
It’s a poor showing for a game that was meant to be the sequel to Super Off-Road, though that doesn’t necessarily make it a bad game. It’s just surprisingly mediocre.
And to those that find the controls impossibly twitchy – good luck if you’re trying to play using the D-pad. The sooner you get used to steering with the L and R buttons, the sooner you will stop crashing and coming in last place 😀
