Rock ‘N Racing Off Road DX Review

Get ready to enjoy Off Road races with your friends and family! Rock’N Racing Off Road DX offers the most entertaining and exciting races, with loads of skids, crashes and amazing jumps.

Developed and Published by EnjoyUp Games, Rock ‘N Racing Off Road DX is a top down racer with a hint of classics of the genre from the 90’s, such as Super Skidmarks and Super Off Road. With a Sound track to suit. Rock ‘N Racing Off Road DX consists of 3 game modes, Championship, Time Trial and Multiplayer. There are 5 Championship cups to compete in, North America, Europe, Asia, Africa and South America. Starting in North America You have to unlock the next cup by winning the cup you’re currently competing in. This also unlocks the cup in time trial mode.

There are also 5 vehicles to choose from, Walker, Highlander, Buggy, Monster and Speedy. Each is unlocked along with its corresponding cup. There are 24 tracks in total, from simple ovals to more complex multi cross overs, all with various humps and jumps. and randomly alternate between daytime, dusk and night. These variations are just graphical and don’t change the difficulty, but are a nice touch.

Multiplayer mode is local only, which is a real shame as this would have definitely been a good 5-10 minute mess around with a few online friends every now and then. But as it stands you’ll have to invite your friends round to play, or even worse play with your family members. On a serious note it is a good family get together game, although I do find it difficult to think of anyone who has 8 controllers to fill the races up!

The gameplay is fairly simple with just steering, accelerate and brakes to get to grips with, although some may find that controlling the car going in different directions from a static camera angle difficult along with the overall sloppiness of the steering, which may lead to some annoying crashes.

Graphically it’s slightly more polished than its predecessors, set in various stadium layouts that are nicely animated but nothing special. Like wise for the audio, it has a generic 90’s rock soundtrack that fits the games style well.

Summary: Rock 'N Racing Off Road DX is a nice nod to the top down racers of old, fans of retro top down racers will love it. But overall it just misses the mark. Online multiplayer would have added more to the game and is a shame it's missing.

  • Great for retro fans
  • Nice family game
  • can be completed quickly
  • No online multiplayer
