Wildmatt has fond memories of the SNES version growing up, but what’s this? The Genesis version had other characters? Uh!
Wildmatt plays a game from his childhood that he remembers both being impressed by, while simultaneously being annoyed by.
THe NES games comes to the Genesis with a slight twist.
I never actually owned a Genesis, but man did I play a heck of a lot of it. ESPN Hockey was also available on the SNES, but I just found that out, so back then this is all I knew. It was a fun side view, TV presentation style, kind of realistic approach to a hockey video game. Overall good stuff, it’s better than alot of these sort of styled hockey titles.
I was actually getting babysat when I originally played this game. Damn, that was so long ago and I didn’t really like the game back then either, but it’s all I had. Dealing with the stupid enemy AI and the cheap feel of it all, kinda ruined the Hulk. He felt so weak, 4 hits to kill the stupidest little guys. A fun little part they added as the ability to become Bruce Banner, but he dies so quick and only occasionally has a gun with 2 bullets.
Oh man, I do remember playing and finishing this game, but I also remember doing that only once then blocking it out of my memory… Until now.
This was an interesting time in the Road Rash lineage. By the time the 3rd game came out, the 3DO/PC game entitled simply Road Rash had already been released. So not that this game was bad, it was just a step backwards. The idea of world travelling in your bike was sweet, but it just seemed like more of the same. Such a shame this series had to fizzle out.
Holy crap, they remade one of my favourite NES games for the Genesis! The things you find out much later…
