Baja Mania (Wii) - Description

Game Ratings

We're sorry, but we don't have any reviews on this game yet.

Baja racing originates from the Southern California desert on the Baja peninsula. Competitors vie with each other to build the ultimate off-road racer - the better the suspension, tyres and, of course, the obligatory roll cage, the better the chances of winning.

Baja Mania draws its inspiration from the desert around Palm Springs where Broadsword Interactive collected the reference material for a previous game, Dakar Rally. During their research, Broadsword discovered Baja racing which takes place in the Southern Californian desert. These races attract a great mix of people from kit car builders to film stars like Paul Newman. In game vehicles include 3 types of dune buggy (4 wheel), 3 types of 'cat' (6 wheel), 3 types of truck (8 wheels) - each vehicle has 3 variants to represent the different teams with races of up to 15 competitors. Baja Mania offers two modes in single player, Career and Arcade and 2 players is Arcade only.

Baja Mania's uniqueness presents aggressive and responsive AI that allows tight competition via checkpoints that must be crossed in order. Players will capture the flags on each checkpoint and display them on their aerial to prove that you were the first through.

3 types of terrain and 3 variants of each, which have totally different courses laid out within them, and this all takes place within an arena of approximately 400 sq. metres.
