Yeah I'd be a Road Rash 2 man myself. Preferred the more standard type pixel art over the digitised ones in 3.

Haven't played it in years, just after remembering the little animations when you finished a level. Some of them were great.

Was I the only one who never seemed to be able to obtain any of the fancy bikes?

I was the same.

I remember though seeing a preview of Road Rash in EGM back in the day and being gobsmacked, but after I bought my Megadrive it was Road Rash 2 that I bought.
The third one pushed it a little too far and the less said about the horrors of Skitchin' the better.

Seldom played is the SegaCD version, which is just awful, attempting to combine the visuals and art style of the 3DO version with the traditional OG Road Rash engine, it's not a pretty sight but is an interesting purchase.
I don't think it ever got a release here, I have a "copy" for research purposes only, having the region changed to the EU with a patching tool, and don't think I played it more than twice.

I got pretty far in Road Rash 2. Got to the last set of races and could afford the Diablo bike.

The problem was you needed the Diablo to place anywhere in them but the thing was near uncontrollable so never did finish it.

I think the reason I prefer 3 is the gameplay and locations. Also they figured out how to keep your weapons in memory so you don't lose them after each race. It has more going for it besides the photo art.

To be fair I haven't given Road Rash 3 much attention due to the visuals. Didn't know that about the weapons, that's actually kind of cool - must give it another bash.

Does this mean I can't bring Road Rash 3 and Skitchin to the Xmas beers?

Christ Road Rash 2 was amazing on the Mega Drive I had it , I did get the Diablo aswell but as the poster said above the speed of it made it unusable , I used to love whipping fella's off the bikes with the chain game went up a level as soon as you got that

The 3DO Rash quibbles are ligitimate. I find RR2's choppy framerate hard to stomach these days. Perhaps I should try overclocking it in an emulator.
