Woah, look the hell out! You can completely destroy your ride in Baja as evidenced by the mayhem in this Vehicle Damage Trailer, and we have to say, we're anxiously anticipating the final product. Off-road racing can be a downright punishing sport, and if you land awkwardly on a hill after getting big air, your buggy might just disintegrate. We're not entirely sure if this damage will adversely affect the actual racing mechanics, or if it's simply cosmetic and more of an arcade-style damage concept. But either way, it certainly adds a level of flash and flair that just about any gamer will appreciate. Baja releases on August 4; we suggest giving it a chance.
