Mega Drive Longplay [247] Road Rash

http://www.longplays.org

Played by: MadMatty

The Original Road Rash game that started the series on the Sega Genesis.

I took the approach of waiting until the bike simply couldn't compete before each bike upgrade. This gives best chance of having the best bikes by level 5 and you will need them. Buying each bike as soon as you can afford them as by the time you get to level5, youll need to make a lot of money and only scoring low placements so would take forever to win level5.

Even on the best bike, the game seems a little unforgiving and really makes you work for getting to the front of the pack. Their isn't much of an ending to this game. once you beat level 5, it just loops so you can do it again and can potentially play forever making money you cant spend on anything after the final bike. That said, most of the Road Rash games do this and never really end.

The Amiga is the odd one out however with a more appropriate ending to the game. I also prefer the music in the Amiga version and its also the first road rash game I ever played so maybe i'm biased or just spot on Smile

    The original creator of this game really loved Road Redemption. EA cannot revive this franchise anymore because they were caught in the money, the power, and they don’t give a shit anymore.

    Road Rash is frustrating and exhilarating in equal measure. Swerving out of the way of an oncoming car (or jumping over one) and watching everybody else get totalled is a huge laugh, as is timing your kicks perfectly (or even luring chasing riders) so another rider eats the back of a car or even a roaming cow. Of course, you’re the sole target for the police (you get busted for actually doing the speed limit, I tried) as well as other riders, and some collisions can punt you backwards at speed. No matter what crash you have, your bike cannot be more than a certain distance away, so you can actually drag it by running. Also, you can knock practically the entire field off, have an uneventful race at the front with nobody in sight, and 2nd place will still only be about three seconds back at the end.

    Ah…memories of being 14 with not a care in the world, now im off to my soul sucking dead end job with a boss who needs clubbed like in the game

    Own a CBR600. When I go on long rides I play this album in my helmet speakers

  15. dropsy on December 19, 2020 at 10:36 pm

    You know you’re old when you remember these graphics blowing your mind. Just hearing the music again I can taste the cheap, store brand cherry cola I would consume by the gallons while playing this.

  16. One3rdNinja on December 19, 2020 at 10:38 pm

    This game, as good as it is, can be totally mental. You can have the best handling, fastest bike, make no mistakes and not crash yet still finish 2 seconds behind the eventual winner, barely seeing him as more than a spec in the distance! Where in other tracks with the same bike, you’re suddenly leading the pack in under 5 miles 😅

  17. Snafu Proxy on December 19, 2020 at 10:38 pm

    Almost as good as RR2 and still better than RR3 (RR3 they seemed to take the graphics back to 8 bit)

  18. Nazareno Silva on December 19, 2020 at 10:40 pm

    Joguei muito!😎👏

    Nostalgia overload I have great memories playing Road rash games with my cousins and friends 👍👍👍👍👍

  22. J Ramses Arias on December 19, 2020 at 10:47 pm

    I remember having rage issues with this game, I went through a couple controllers malfunctioning haha good times.

  23. Mr. E 603 on December 19, 2020 at 10:51 pm

    Wow talk about nostalgia I remember playing this a lot when I was a kid

  24. Amarok on December 19, 2020 at 10:51 pm

    Someone needs to make a metal cover of this game’s soundtrack. Such iconic pieces.

  25. Megan S on December 19, 2020 at 10:52 pm

    I loved this game, e and my brother would play it all the time when we came home from school, we would get far as to upgrade at least 4 bikes and then the bikes would be harder to control after the fourth upgrade, lol too bad this game is not on a phone or Kindle Fire.

  26. Loungejay on December 19, 2020 at 10:53 pm

    Natasha, one of my first loves as a boy. She had competition from Blaze from SOR and Tyris from Golden Axe though.

  27. Michael Lawlor on December 19, 2020 at 10:54 pm

    Back to my childhood, love it!! Specially the music.

  28. Mac Ronan on December 19, 2020 at 10:54 pm

    My brother and I would miss the bus playing this game in the morning before school. I was addicted!

  29. Luis Ferreyra on December 19, 2020 at 10:54 pm

    Acá te cagadas a trompadas con los otros, te chocabas vacas y autos. Genial este juego y un cago de risa

  30. Erium on December 19, 2020 at 10:54 pm

    I ADORED these games as a kid. I stopped playing video games about a decade ago…however i recently got Road Redemption on steam and I cant put it down. Holy shit what a masterpiece

  31. Aaron Gonzales on December 19, 2020 at 10:55 pm

    This something more too this game video grandpa

  32. Valkir on December 19, 2020 at 10:57 pm

    I would really buy a good remake of this.

  33. Steveman Chair on December 19, 2020 at 10:57 pm

    This used to be my favourite game when I was really young. I got to Level 5 but I don’t think I completed any of the races as I kept getting wrecked and the tracks were so long and the bikes were fast. Came here to see what the ending of this game was… didn’t realise you got to bone Natasha at the end haha

  34. German Lujan on December 19, 2020 at 11:00 pm

    Carajo, que sos malísimo para controlar la moto!!

    Who remembers playing Road Rash on the Sega Genesis?

  39. Edge-of-Sanity on December 19, 2020 at 11:04 pm

    EA used to be a great company, they also made Future Cop LAPD on PS1 etc, then became the worse game company to exist. Followed by Ubisoft (ago also used to be great with Rayman etc)

  40. Robert Johnson on December 19, 2020 at 11:04 pm

    Rude boy, Grubb, and Gunther were chumps

  41. underneonloneliness2 on December 19, 2020 at 11:05 pm

    I always wanted to turn down one of the side roads as a kid could never understand why I couldn’t reach the mountains.

  42. LittleNicky on December 19, 2020 at 11:06 pm

    love the song for redwood forest

  43. Jared Peters on December 19, 2020 at 11:07 pm

    If they can bring this game to ps5 imagine the graphics more action more bikes more speed

  44. Paul Thorn on December 19, 2020 at 11:08 pm

    I always loved how the Road Rash games got the parallax background effect backwards.

  45. ppablo7argentina on December 19, 2020 at 11:09 pm

    I always asked myself this question: is there a way to hit and harm a cop in the game?

  46. C. Dawg Knight on December 19, 2020 at 11:09 pm

    I always enjoyed playing this, though Redwood Forest got tougher as you went on. Mostly due to stupid deer in the roadway.

  47. Bayu Rahardianto on December 19, 2020 at 11:09 pm

    its difficult to control…its wilder than Isle of man TT

  48. Bayu Rahardianto on December 19, 2020 at 11:10 pm

    i remember to play this when i was a boy..dammmn

  49. ThrashTillDeath on December 19, 2020 at 11:10 pm

    Ahh Road Rash but I was a bigger fan of skitchin" where the enemies actually attacked each other and added to the chaos

  50. Major Tom on December 19, 2020 at 11:12 pm

    Pa ha ha ha!! Poor Rude Boy 😂
