When you think of a racing game, thoughts normally center on head-to-head contests between multiple contestants, but there are other styles and Overpass slots into one of those alternate categories. With a focus on extreme off-roading this is a title focused on time and execution as you push your 4-wheeled vehicles to perform over a wide variety of terrain and obstacles. There is a fair degree of nuance and difficulty to this since the focus is on you tackling the course by yourself and you’ll need to hone your techniques for specific sections if you want to get the best times. Already occupying a more niche corner of the racing genre the overall experience has performance hitches and issues with pop-in or weird geometry in places that can be a distraction, but given the lack of many alternatives on the system if you love the challenge of off-roading it’s still a decent choice.
