Vintage Video Games #18 – Road Rash II
Road Rash II is the second in the motorcycle racing game by Electronic Arts released on the Mega Drive. Based heavily in the design of the first Road Rash, it was a few new features including bikes with nitrous oxide injection and a variety of weapons with which to beat your opponent to smithereens!!
Plot: The races take place in the U.S. states of Alaska, Hawaii, Tennessee, Arizona, and Vermont. After all five tracks were won, the player would advances to the next level where the track would be longer, the opponents faster, and much more money at stake for a victory or a loss. RR II sees two additional, major features to the game. One – the fighting system and the addition of a second weapon—the chain. The other main addition to gameplay is of bikes containing nitrous oxide injection, which allows the user’s motorcycle to accelerate beyond its top speed for a short amount of time.
Highlights: It has to be battling it out with the chains and the nitrous oxide injection for a bit of hyper speed. Two great new features from the original!
