I remember spending hours on Road Rash 1 & 2 as I kid when I went round to a friends house. The only games we spent more time on was Sonic 2, Streets of Rage and Lost Vikings. However, I hadn't played it in at least 10 years and I was a little concerned that it wouldn't live up to my memories. It does live up to them, and it's still awesome.

The graphics are more than acceptable considering the age of the game, the music is outstanding, and the leveling up system works like a charm. I'm not a big fan of racing games so comparisons to newer additions to the genre are probably lost on me, but there is a lot included that I would consider innovative for the time. From being able to knock opponents off of their bikes, to the obstacles set in place, there's a lot to like.

Although, while initially running back to your bike seemed like a good idea, it becomes increasingly frustrating during the harder stages of the game. Especially when you're in first place - just about to cross the finish line - and you crash into a tree. That's one feature that I'm glad has been dropped over the years.

I didn't finish any of the goals (I stopped at level 4), but overall I had a lot of fun reliving one of the better games of my childhood.

The more i've played it lately, the more i've appreciated the graphics. I love the gameplay, just so much fun to punch or hit people off their bikes with a bat.

The music is simply awesome and as soon as i hear it, it gets me in a great mood to play.

I found the running back to your bike a great feature, it's something you would rarely see in a game back then or even now.

The game was a lot of fun, unfortunately i didn't manage to complete any of the goals. (Only got to level 3)

I'm done playing the game now. I have hardly played it this week until today, where I spent about an hour on it before getting bored .

I never had a Sega console as a kid (I had Nintendo), so I played this when I was younger, even at a friends house who did have a Sega. I had, however, played it about a month ago, when I downloaded the entire Sega Megadrive/Genesis ROM set, and asked a few people for game recommendations to play.

So, the game. The graphics suck by today's standards, which is expected, but since it is a 16bit game, they are pretty good. The music starts off good, but after an hour of playing the game, the same damn song just gets boring.

I have never been too into racing games, with the exception of the Mario kart series, Diddy Kong Racing, and a couple of others, but I did enjoy the first few races I played on this. Unfortunately though, I sucked at it . I managed to get 1st only once, and the best place I got after that was 4th.

The ability to hit people and knock them off their bikes is amusing though, even when the rest of the game gets boring. No matter how badly you are doing in the race, there is just something about knocking another player off their bike that somehow makes your place in the race no longer important. I don't recall any games having that feature before this game, but I am sure I have played other games since that have included a similar feature, I just couldn't name them lol. Since I have never been all that into racing games, I can't comment on how they have influenced other games in the future.

So all in all, the graphics are good for its time, the music is great to start off with, but gets boring quickly, as does the game play. Fun to play for a while, but I don't think I will be going on it again.

Oh, and as you may have guessed, I didn't complete ANY of the challenges . Roll on the next game!

Finished Road Rash. Enjoyed it throughly. An excellent racing game and enjoyable piece of Genesis/Megadrive history.

Graphics
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.
4/5

Gameplay
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.
4/5

Sound
Nice 16-bit soundtrack. An enjoyable listen, and complements gameplay. Variation in style/sound depending on stage. Recognizable theme; significant within G/MG generation.
4/5

Entertainment
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.
3.5/5

TOTAL: 15.5/20
An above average racer with manageable flaws.

ALL CHALLENGES COMPLETED

1. Complete game




2. Diablo 1000




3. $100,000


Bring on the next game :4
