A Classic game revamped
I remember when the Sega CD version of this one came out that I basically wore the disc out. The Saturn version is slightly updated from that particular release (which was already an updated version of Road Rash from the Genesis.) The graphics are slightly smoother and the controls are a bit more balanced, but ultimately the updates of this port from the Sega CD version are actually detrimental.
1. The groovy mid 90s soundtrack is confined only to the menus - whereas the S.CD version played music in the races.
2. The sound effects seem generally scaled back and choppier than the previous version.
and 3. The improved graphics actually feel less organic than the S.CD version which was basically no different than the Genesis games.
Not the definitive port, but an otherwise solid racing game with some good ol' fashioned cheesy FMV.
