Codex Gamicus

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 because it is based around the real life Baja 1000 off road race. 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 and up to 4 player split screen.

Car Types[]

Baja Bug Class (Class 5-1600 & Class 1/2-1600) Based on the pre-1980 Volkeswagen 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.


The game received average ratings from most reviewers averaging out at around 6 or 7 out of 10.
