Road Rash for the Sega Mega-CD is an entry in the Road Rash series of games. Despite its name, it is not a port of the original Road Rash, but rather its own game derived from the 3DO version (which was later ported to the Sega Saturn, again as Road Rash).

History

Versions

The main difference between this version of Road Rash and the 3DO original is that it uses the same core engine seen in its Sega Mega Drive predecessors, meaning the world is not rendered in 3D and the tracks are all different as a result. Much of the aesthetics are identical, however (save for colour restrictions), with similar cutscenes and menus, and an identical soundtrack.
