This time around you start off with $1000 and a really lousy bike. As you progress in the races, you may divert yourself to the bike shop to get a new bike or important upgrades. By doing well in races you will receive various amounts of money. That money can then be used to buy faster and more competitive bikes later on in the game. This time, instead of just the USA, the races take place across different countries all over the world, all represented in a stereotypical manner. In the UK, cars drive on the left and there is rainy weather. In Kenya, animals will cross the road and you will hear some funky tribal beats. Of course, as you know, this isn't an ordinary racing game. While racing, you can engage in fighting with ordinary punches and kicks and weapons like crowbars, clubs, chains, a cattle prod, chain-sticks, and maces. The game is spiced up with humorous situations, funny winning screens, jumping over cows and the mighty crashes. Written by Shawn Watson

Road rash has a reputation for being one of the best racing games for the genesis, but also the most violent. Since when have people beaten each other off their bikes with clubs and chains? who came up with this idea? Whoever did, thank you.

you play the role of an unknown who rides a bike with all the power of a leaf blower and $1000 to upgrade it. you get to drive your motorbike among country to country, winning races to keep upgrading your bike (which is one of the biggest things that made road rash a success in it's day) however, nothing comes with a worry-free guarantee, as the local police force will do whatever they can to stop you, from fining you to telling you to legally rat on your fellow bikers to save your own butt. if you fail at either of those, it's game over.

there's no battery pack in the game, so you'll have to work with a password system, but it is so confusing, i just start a new game every time.

Road rash originally started with an E rating, but when it made it to the N64, it's rating increased to T because the violence looked more real. but it was awesome. now how come Road rash hasn't come out for the PS3 or Xbox 360 yet?
