Images of Baja

THQ sends us some new images of its offroad racing videogame Baja, still on track for an August 2008 release on both the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. Not only does it have 40 vehicules divided in eight categories, it also boasts many modes like splitscreen (four players max.), online (twelve players max.) and LAN, so we'll have to keep an eye on it.

if it wasnt for the fact the images have been tagged with ps3 and box 360 logo's i would have sworn these where for the ps2. really not impressive visually. seems you could get a similar experience from DiRT.

Looks decent in some respects but absolutely disgusting in most. Should bomb nicely.

and without sleeping/eating?

Only good thing in this game is the draw distance for the foliage - everything else looks poor.

You can play most games for days constantly without load times, if you just run in circles.

It's not like you could race for 9 hours in a straight line, unless they got random terrain generation, which would probably be lame anyways.

NOT! seriously if you're game looks worse than something that came out almost a year ago (dirt) STOP.

Well, to me it looks fine. When it runs at stable 60 frs, and gameplay will be good, this could become a cool game. The tracks look interesting, the lights/shadows look athmospheric... Not top nodge, but not as bad as you say guys.

Looks nice, but I'm holding out for Grid as my next racer.

    GriftGFX If only it had the same quality live action video :D (3 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @GriftGFX: Oh that's crystal clear. I do wonder if it means it will stay first person from here on out. It probably will so it will work for VR. (3 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @GriftGFX: Maybe in the way it brings back suspense and the locations? (4 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Moonwalker: It's definitely influenced by this generation of horror games: Outlast, Alien, Amnesia, etc. Not that there's anything wrong with that. (4 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker At least it's not a Outlast clone which at first glance it sure seemed like it. (6 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I just watched ACGs review and he said only the monsters are just standard, nothing special, but the humans are. Kinda wish this had zombies. (7 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The game looks *nothing* like Resident Evil 1. I'm not bashing the game, but give me a break. (8 minutes ago)
