Finished Road Rash
. Enjoyed it throughly. An excellent racing game and enjoyable piece of Genesis/Megadrive history.
For the year of release (1991), pretty damn good. Colourful and inviting. Rivals later G/MG titles, such as Gain Ground
and James Pond
. Recycling of backgrounds tedious at points.
Enjoyable although repetitive. Nice controls. Solid AI. Level of difficulty progresses naturally. Achieving first an accessible challenge, even on later levels. Faster bikes, such as Diablo 1000, can be difficult to steer.
Nice 16-bit soundtrack. An enjoyable listen, and complements gameplay. Variation in style/sound depending on stage. Recognizable theme; significant within G/MG generation.
Very entertaining at first, then repetitive. Racing is decent, and ability to attack competitors is a nice factor. Frustration does set in during later levels. Getting "busted" or "wrecked" becomes tiresome. Weak payoff for completion.
An above average racer with manageable flaws.
