Road Rash tribute sight

Oh pardon me..
Ok check it out, this is a very detailed site about the greatest motorcycle game ever. The guy even lists the specs of the bikes in great detail. It's as if he was a salesman at some bike shop.

That is a wonderful site. Road Rash was an awesome, fast and nasty game.

I really like the Road Rash advertisement, the three page one featuring the "motorcycle club." Wicked!

Yeah you like this game series too, guys?
When I saw it on the Genesis at a friend's house, I went out and bought it right away. This is a game that the Super Nintendo could not handle as well as the faster Genesis. This is the coolest game. There is a page on the site that shows the Amiga version. That version is the best looking one.

I used to love Road Rash. Even played the game gear version quite a bit.

One of my favorite 3DO games. I never really cared for the Genesis versions.

I found that having played the Megadrive version to death , my time spent with the Amiga version was one of disapointment.I think it's fair to say that the graphics were more vibrant and maybe more clear but it seemed to have lost it's soul.Music was less thrilling than the megadrive and sprites no longer scaled.Maybe i just didn't give it enough time for all the differences to become likable.Perhaps i will go back at some point to see if this is the case.

It would have been interesting to see a Snes version attempted if only to see how it was one of the few areas that Snes couldn't really compete with Amiga and Megadrive.

The Amiga version is nice but flat.
The Genesis is the best, especially the first two games.
The SNES rocked, but was too slow. Although the SNES had great racing games, EA games were slower on it than the Genesis.
Look at how terribly choppy the animation is on NHL 94, a game that is incredible on Genesis.

Hmn, one of the main reasons the SNES was slower for games was that it had better graphics :-) ... Mario kart was, and still is one of the best racers around... wait, the snes had the F1 circus series, ... ... which was ... FAST! - you know the over head game that was on the PC Engine?

But yeah, Genesis Road rash owned ... I prefered RR2 for its split screen and chain though (not to mention nitro).

Personally, I bashed the first 2 people off (on RR2) for every race... they must have been quite miffed

I loved Road Rash for the Genesis/Mega Drive. Never played the Amiga one though. Anyone upload it to the Zone, perchance?

SNES Super Mad Champ http://www.rvgfanatic.com/6501/113901.html is good clone of Road Rash, but little too slow

Could someone tell me how can I turn off front view of my bike in Road Rash Win 95? 3DO version is without that: http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/3do/image/584473.html It can block view of my bike on the road.
