Sounds like it wants to give MotorStorm some competition. I do like the aspect of upgrading your vehicles and I would like to see how that works out.

BAJA is being developed by the people who made MX vs. ATV franchise so if you like those games you most likely will like this too. Personally I’m waiting for MotorStorm 2 but I’m going to keep an eye on BAJA.
