Complete waste of time and money

The graphics on this game are so poor even players with the strongest stomach will feel car sick, there is no free play mode or maps on this game so venturing off the track will just reset you back to the track. Very disappointed with this game after all the hype. It's a good thing I have the real deal in the garage to play on

While this off-road racing game does put a unique spin on outdoor racing, most drivers won't appreciate how rough it gets. In Overpass, you drive All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV) and Utility Terrain Vehicles (UTVs) on bumpy, muddy, and rocky tracks full of such hazards as giant rocks, piles of wooden logs, and even seesaws. Your objective isn't just to figure out how to beat the clock (instead of another racer), but also how to make it through these tough courses.

It's just too bad that this is often more frustrating than challenging. While the game's numerous tracks are nicely varied, and have you racing through jungles, forests, and industrial sites, many have spots that require multiple attempts to traverse. Still others will have you wishing your vehicle had newer tires and bigger engines so you won't constantly get stuck. It also doesn't help that the ATVs and UTVs here are so prone to falling over that you'll spend as much time pressing the reset button as you do the gas. Even with the option to switch UTV's from 4-wheel-drive to independent suspension on the fly, and the ability to shift your ATV driver's weight, you'll get stuck in this game far too frequently. All of which is why Overpass doesn’t get a pass.
