OK, who here has never played Road Rash, raise your hand? I assume not many are raising your hands, as everybody and their dog has played this game at least once. Having been around since the Genesis, Road Rash has enjoyed a long, full life. Isn't it time it had a well deserved rest?
There's no denying the basic premise is a promising one. Race your motorcycle against a bunch of other bikers through cities and across countrysides, beating the crap out of them as you go. Let's not forget getting to beat the cop, too (heh, heh). And there's no denying this latest version looks the best ever, better even than the 3DO version, which set the stage with FMV and a soundtrack by Soundgarden. But snazzy cut-scenes aside, there really isn't anything here we haven't seen before.
