Fast paced adrenaline filled racer
Sometimes taking the path of the pure arcade when it comes to racers is the best way to go. You've got cars that allow you to go crazy on the road, you've got challenge in the form of knowing when (and there are rather few occasions for it!) to throttle down, and other than that it's a question of being very, very alert. This is Motorhead, a great game if you are not looking for realism, and, within the family of established racer titles if the genre, it is definitely worth a median spot in. For a 98 game, it does look the part, with colorful, neon lit tracks, with a host of vehicles that manage to have some different steering and feel to them, and, also, with a very nice looking set of tracks. Motorhead also sports a cool host of audio tracks, so the energy of the races is accentuated by the music as well, bringing the entire game to life even more thoroughly. So, to be critical as well, what you're probably going to find a little less alluring is the diversity of the tracks, as well as the behavior of the cars after a while. The other vehicles also seem to always be on your tail, a bit to heavily, as if you are dragging them with a wire. Yeah, it's going to feel as if you are always under pressure, but you'll soon find out that they also seem to wait for you, if you are a bit too far back. So, naturally, after a few races this will get old. But, for the time being, if you're on a arcade look back streak, Motorhead has enough on its plate to make it worthwhile. So give it a try.
