Super Hang On was a very fun game, it tried to be like Road
Rash just with out the illegal races and cops, I think it
went pass what Road Rash was. The graphics the nice early
90's racing music and the sheer fun added up to an above
The graphics were great and it was just about the best motor
cycle game graphics I seen on Genesis. The back ground could
of used some work everything seemed a little bit plain, and
colorless. The size of the men was pretty good as well, when
they fell off their bikes it seemed pretty realistic. The
Genesis tried to use a bit of old fashion scrolling by
should a lot of frames of the same signs and bikes that is
pretty old now but they couldn't anything better back then.
Some old fashion racing music accompanied on each track,
which reminded me of Rad Racer 1 and 2. I especially liked
the music that played in the desert it just sounded like the
perfect racing music and it moved you along as you played.
The sound FX could of used some work the crashes and falls
didn't sound too realistic. Neither did engine revving
during the beginning, it just sounded like a game and not
like you was at a real motor cross.
Game Play 8.0/10
This game was for 1 or 2 players, I think I don't remember
playing with 2 players. You had the regular race mode and
that was it. You gained money to get upgrades for your bike.
Not a new bike, just upgrades that made it quicker but when
you upgraded so did the enemy bikes. Unlike Road Rash, when
you fall off your bike you automatically run back to it, so
when your bike explodes you can't run away on feet. When you
upgrade your bike the coolest upgrade you can get is turbo
engine, it ups your total speed by a whopping 50 mph. Every
5 or so races you get a new manager. The manager's get
bigger and better, and in turn gives you more money. You
will need this money for better equipment for you bike,
because after a while you parts will get worn out from over
use or too many crashes. The difficulty is intermediate and
you have password saves.
This game is just mega fun and brings back a lot of fun
memories. This is probably one of the best games you can get
from Genesis. I think so because this game came out in the
year when Sega got its popularity. The replay value is
definitely high because it will take you a while to get
passed all those races. If you like Motorcross you'll
definitely like this one.
