Ironman Super Offroad is a fun old dirt track racer that is best played against a few friends (up to 4) on the same computer. Endorsed by Ivan "Ironman" Stewart, a famous dirt track racer, the game lets you drive huge buggies against other opponents on several rugged courses. |
The game is played from a neat third-person, isometric/bird's eye perspective that lets you see the whole track at once. The controls are easy to learn, and the cars behave realistically. However, realism is not the game's focus: similar to many console racing games, the emphasis here is on playability and fun. Among other things, you can collect cash that mysteriously appears on the tracks every now and then. The money – cash you collect and prize money you get from winning races – is used to buy better parts for your car (better tyres, engine, etc.). You can also buy bonus items such as nitros – the most useful item in many a racing game. Nitros significantly boost your acceleration and therefore help tip the odds in your favor.
If you are looking for a realistic car racing game, this is not one of them. However, if you are looking for a fun and challenging racer to play with a few friends, Ironman Super Offroad will prove to be both playable and replayable. Thumbs up!
