Reviewed by Robert Wong Biker Mice From Mars is a great racing game for the Super NES up there with Super Mario Kart and Top Gear. There are 30 different tracks and 6 different drivers: Modo, Vinnie, Limburger, Throttle, Grease Pit, and Karbunkle. There are 4 different ways to race: Main Race (most points wins the circuit, like Mario Kart), Battle Race (extremely fun! destroy all riders to win as you go around the track!), and of course Versus and Time Trial. You can upgrade your car as well, with more weapons, faster engines, better gripping tires, and more protective armor.

Graphics 6 out of 10

The graphics are not very good compared to other games for this system. A lot of the track's backgrounds are just rehashes of past tracks. Also the drivers are small and not very well drawn. But this is really the only weakness of the game.

Music and Sound 9 out of 10

I'm not into rock music, but this game almost turned me around. It has great music! On every track there are guitars in the background playing a different tune that I STILL HUM ALMOST EVERY DAY. The sounds are basic with weapon noises, character yells, and engine roars.

Game Challenge 9 out of 10

The game is easy on Main Race, but on Battle Race the game gets obscenely hard, as you try and shoot down the riders while they shoot right back at you. Also they try and ram you into the hazards in some tracks, which will hamper you and damage you. The tracks themselves are slightly easy for the first couple of circuits (the first circuit has ALL SQUARE TRACKS, which are easy as pie), while the later circuits have crazy hairpin turns which you must hit correctly unless you want to fall, crash, or burn and lose time and energy.

Game Play-Fun 10 out of 10

Each different driver has a different weapon and car stats, so each driver has its advantages and disadvantages. It is most fun playing with two people on the Battle Race,as both of you are usually yelling at the screen, at each other, and just having a great time. There is a password save on the Main Race, so you and your friend can come back and play where you left off. Also using the power-ups you get after you complete a lap are cheap, but good if you have them.

Frustration

Like I said before,the drivers ram you a lot, and the later tracks need precision timing to complete. Also, the aforementioned cheap power-ups can drop you into last place too fast. Also there is no battery save so your Time Trials times are lost when you turn off the game.

Replayability 9 out of 10

YES! The Battle Race will bring you back every time as you try and advance farther through the tracks. The Main Race on Hard will take a long time to master as well.

Game Value 9 out of 10

For only $10-20 you can get this game off of auctions or at Funcoland. The game offers as much as many of the other racing games out there, even more. One of the best three racing games on the Super NES.

Overall 9 out of 10

This game should not be passed up! Go out and buy it now, especially if you are a fan of Mario Kart or any other game like Mario Kart.
