    While Road Rage is too uneven to be a true Road Rash successor, it captures enough of the fun of motorcycle combat that made those games great. If you can ignore the dumb story, drab visuals, and lame soundtrack and just enjoy the smooth racing and brutal combat, you're bound to have a good time.

    Road Rage is like one of those terrible low-budget straight-to-video movies that occupies the shelves of your local supermarket: you know it’s rubbish but you can’t quite help but be bemused by it.

    Charging $40/£20 for this game is borderline criminal. Associating it with Road Rash is disrespectful. Unless customizing motorcycles is your sole passion in life, avoid this one.

    I hate being so negative about a game, but simply put, Road Rage is a mess on all fronts. Not only is it hard on the eyes and ears, it’s also unnecessarily frustrating and cumbersome to play. There are no real redeeming qualities to be found here, in what would be a very forgettable game if it weren’t so damned poor.

    I hate to be overtly negative about any videogame, but Road Rage is a classic example of a game that just disappoints on almost every level. I can’t recommend this game to anyone, not even for a cheap price because it just feels like a game that was made back in 1994, and that’s even a disservice to some of the great games released back then. I just see no redeeming factors for Road Rage unless silly ragdoll physics is a preference. Otherwise, I’d avoid at all cost.

    The whole thing has a whiff of Steam Early Access about it, which is not what I’d expect from a full game release on the Xbox store. And it’s brown. Like, really brown.

    I spent a great deal of time playing Road Rash back in the day, and without a doubt it was one of the most enjoyable and satisfying gamesI spent a great deal of time playing Road Rash back in the day, and without a doubt it was one of the most enjoyable and satisfying games around in that era. When Road Rage was first announced to say I was excited was definitely an understatement. Unfortunately though this adaptation of Road Rash is simply awful and it never offers you anything that will make you fall in love with it like its predecessors did. The amount of technical issues in the game is way too high and this will already be enough to put a lot of people off, but this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Road Rage’s problems. The riding and combat in the game are simply awful and offer you nothing at all. Riding feels unresponsive and never feels exciting and the combat is even more dull with every weapon feeling the same and never packing a punch to even remotely satisfy you. It does have a bit of variety when it comes to the missions you can take part in, but this is quickly forgotten because the world in which the game takes place in is lifeless and the AI has nothing going for it. They have tried to add a story in the game but this is also a failure and nothing that’s included in the story is memorable at all. The presentation side of the game is definitely hit and miss. I actually quite enjoyed the soundtrack that was present in the game, but when it came to the visuals I was really disappointed because certain areas can look really ugly at times. At the end of the day to say that I was really disappointed with Road Rage would be a massive understatement. The game fails to get any of the basics right, and there really isn’t anything that will make you want to keep playing. Some of the problems in the game are completely unforgivable and without a doubt this game tarnishes the good reputation of the Road Rash series. I can’t stress enough that you should stay away from this game and if you were a fan of the Road Rash series then you will find this game horrifying. Expand

    Road Rage
    Stay Away
    Road Rage is a motorcycle combat game where you play as one of various riders in a motorcycle gang…
    And needless to say.. you are indeed bad to the bone…
    And theres only one language you understand now… and that’s brutal violence…
    The game takes place in the city of ashen with 7 different districts unlocked as you progress the game…
    This is in open world game sort of like the need for speed games..
    You drive around the city to get to objective points..
    Once there you take part in either a race, a run, complete stunt objectives, run from the cops, or assassinate targets… there are different race types.. but all follow the same principles..
    Get from checkpoint to checkpoint.. sometimes hit enemies with a bat or chainsaw… or try to outsmart the cops for 30 seconds
    And none of them are fun…
    While racing you can take out enemies with a melee weapon…
    and enemies can take you out with these weapons too…
    though using these weapons like the rest of the game just isn’t fun.. they hardly feel like they function…
    Winning races will award you cash to buy new bikes, unlocked as the story progresses, you can also customize your bike and upgrade it..
    Some missions requiring certain bikes and upgrades before you can start them…
    If you don’t have enough cash there are plenty of missions around the world for you to go out and earn some…
    winning missions also rewards you with a text conversation that is thankfully voice acted…
    But this is some of the most ridiculous voice acting in video games period…
    But im glad the effort was there to make this game feel like it was cared about a little bit..
    And this is how the games story is delivered to you…
    through these conversations after races
    But the voice acting and and the overall gameplay are so bad that I couldn’t help but laugh dozens of times while playing..
    There are awful physics where youll explode or fly through the air bumping into the tiniest item…
    Youll get stuck in places after a crash having to restart a race, thankfully this was rare.. happening only once…
    Cop chases can have you flying through buildings after they hit you..
    Other racers will flip cars, cars fall out of the sky…
    this game is just a mess…
    There is inline multiplayer and split screen, though I could never get a connection to go through, and the game has to load twice at a painfully slow rate before you can try to find another match, making it not even worth it to try and find other players to suffer with..
    This is an awful game in every sense of the word…
    Its looks like a ps2 game
    it plays like a ps2 game
    I give Road Rage
    a 3/10
