Great environments, decent game play

Offroad Legends 2 for Android is an adrenaline pumping physics-based racer that lets players experience the thrill of an off-road race behind the wheel of monster trucks or various other 4x4s. The game is set on tracks all over the world, filled with manmade obstacles and a terrain layout that can be conquered only by the beasts that you drive.
The game plays superbly and is a worthy competitor for the best physics racer out there. Every truck has a different feel in the way it handles. Based on each vehicle that the player drives, they will need to adapt and react to the terrain in an appropriate way. There is little variation between levels. Most of them are timed races that require sprinting to the finish line while some require the user to complete additional objectives, such as jumping over lava or transporting goods from start to finish without losing or damaging them. Crashes, incorrect landings, and colliding with obstacles will gradually damage the player’s car. Damage can be noticed on the indicator on the lower side of the screen and also on the vehicle, in the form of wobbling wheels and such. Increased damage to the car can severely impact handling. While off the track, users have the option to tune their vehicle and toy around with it to find the optimum configuration that suits each terrain and objective.
Offroad Legends 2 is a great racing game with impeccable physics and beautiful, breath-taking environments. However the system requires waiting quite a large amount of time between races, unless in-app purchases are used to counter the downtime.
