Clear the streets! Electronic Arts's mash motorcycle racing game, Road Rash 2, returns in an all-new, souped-up edition with new tracks, bikes, options, opponents, and more importantly, head-to- head action. Tired of the usual video game fare and looking for a driving simulation that really flies? Then tighten your chin strap and take this game for a spin!
The Need for Speed
Road Rash 2 plays exactly like its predecessor. You control a high-powered racing bike from a sharp third-person, behind-the-bike perspective. Your only controls are the brakes, throttle, and attack buttons. There are five levels (each with five tracks) set in different parts of the United States -- Hawaii, Alaska, Vermont, Tennessee, and Arizona. Finish in the top third on each track and you advance to the longer, and more treacherous, upper levels. Sound easy? Not! You face a field of 14 other racers, all determined to punch, slap, and kick you off the road if they get the chance. Watch out for nasty players carrying spiked bats and chains. However, if you time it just right, you can snatch away their weapons and use them yourself!
ProTip: Repeatedly hit C when opponents sneak up from behind, and they'll approach on the side you're punching.
In addition to your unscrupulous opponents, hazards and obstacles threaten to end your ride permanently. Regular traffic, oil slicks, gravel patches, rocks, and worker's barricades are to be expected, but watch out for wandering deer and cows. Hitting a bovine doing 120 mph nets you a year's supply of red meat!
- launch off the small rocks and stones on the sides of the road.
- Jumping straight nets the most distance.
- Jump over wrecks and fallen bikers.
- Ride through a cow and hear it "moo!"
Tearing through the picturesque countryside "slightly" over the speed limit isn't encouraged, so be on the lookout for squads of smokeys determined to nab you and your fellow racing enthusiasts. You can get arrested by taking too long to get back to your bike after a crash or by smashing into a police barricade. Get caught, and it's game over!
- Hug tight when going into curves.
- Hit the brakes immediately when you go into a skid.
- Follow the dotted yellow line for maximum safety. You can easily swerve left or right to dodge oncoming obstacles.
- It's OK to punch and ram police bikers! Just don't spill out near them!
- Take out opponents instantly by bumping them into signs and cars.
Don't Love Thy Neighbor
The one thing that kept the first Road Rash from achieving "instant classic" status was the lack of two-player competitive play. Road Rash 2 makes up for that and more by featuring great two- player, split-screen racing, and one-on- one split-screen action with the weapon of your choice. You can also take turns on the full screen to see who nets the best time and finish. Not to worry, the split-screen graphics and game play are just as nicely detailed and responsive as the full screen. Not only can you race against your buddy, but you can also punch his lights out!
The Price Is Right
Winning races nets the prize money you need to upgrade your bike into an even meaner machine. A whole bevy of bikes is available for trade and purchase. Ultra Lights, Super Bikes, and Nitros (three classes of bikes) present a ride suited for a specific strength and strategy. Ultra Lights are extremely maneuverable but lack in horsepower. Super Bikes are powerful but heavier and difficult to control. Finally, Nitros are immense bikes with massive horsepower and Nitro bursts that peel the asphalt right off the surface! Save up for the exact bike that's sure to fit your racing style. But remember, it's not the horsepower, but the driver!
- Since the screens in two-player mode are 50% smaller, the controls are 50% more responsive.
- Save up for the right bike for you instead of blowing your dough on the first new bike you can get.
Road Rash 2 is a noteworthy improvement on an already excellent game. The new tracks, hot game play, and two-player competitive play clearly set this apart from its predecessor. Sharp graphics, plus the smooth and believable driving simulation animation warrant an extra look. Different hip themes for each track and plenty of digitized sound effects add to the realism of the racing experience. If you're looking for a game that truly gets your heart pumpin' and keeps you on the edge of your seat every second of play, Road Rash 2 is your ticket to ride!
