Game description: Arcade rally racing gets fast and furious in the newest addition to the EA SPORTS BIG! line-up. Let it all hang out as you powerslide, get big air, and smash through 20 exotic off-road tracks. Charge with precision and blaze through Shox Zones to win the races within the race. Burn rubber to earn a new turbo-charged ride or wager it all for a chance to win 24 licensed beauties in the ultimate off-road collection.
Shox is based around the concept of a shockwave that appears in front of the player's car if they successfully pass, within the time limit, through three points on a track. When catching up with the "Shox wave" the screen will appear blurry and make driving at high speed difficult.
