5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the best Road Rash ever May 25, 2011

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Road Rash has a long and storied history, and many great editions of the game are out there (notably Road Rash 3 for Genesis and Road Rash 64 for Nintendo 64). Personally, I find the Sega CD version to be the best of all for a variety of reasons.

Firstly, this one has some funny CG accompanied by a soundtrack from some great 90's hard rock / metal bands. Soundgarden (Superunknown is on here), Pavement, Hammerbox and Monster Magnet are featured on the amazing soundtrack, and the songs really fit the mood of the game to a T.

Secondly, I like the width of the road, the design of the tracks, the use of the Sega controller and the sound effects they use. I like being able to pick upgrades at the main screen, the career mode and the way everything comes together.

And thirdly, related to the first point, the soundtrack with the aforementioned artists plays _while you race_. Which sadly, is NOT the case in the Playstation, Saturn or (I believe) 3d0 versions of the game. After playing all versions repeatedly, I cannot deny that the Sega CD version is the most fun of all to play largely for soundtrack based-issues. The Midi soundtrack that is employed for the other versions just seems so weak and silly compared to Soundgarden, it's hard to take.

So though it's not easy to find, if you can get a hold of Road Rash for Sega CD, do so. It's a great version of a great game and you will not be disappointed.
