Played Road Rash before?
Do you remember those graphics and sound effects? That classic DOS-based game you used to play on your old desktop PC.
Riding that bike, kicking and punching the opponent, playing it over and over again and only stopping when you make it first to the finishing line or when your mother used to pull off the power cord. Damn those were the days. 😀
Those violent, illegal street races were terribly enjoyable. Road Rash was love.
Let’s just relive those moments before we take you to the new version of this game.
Road Rash was first released in 1991 by Electronic Arts. From 1991 to 2000 the game has seen a series of changes in 6 different versions. And then the game lost its hold.
But now it’s BACK!
Road Redemption the new version of Road Rash has got a whole new makeover from graphics to gameplay. Everything has been revamped.
