Road Rash - самая успешная мотоциклетная гонка в игровой индустрии.
Первая часть вышла ещё в далёком 1991-ом году и выпуск новых частей продолжался до самого 2000-ого когда вышла последняя часть серии официально именуемая Road Rash, носящая подзаголовок - Jailbreak.
В 2013 году серии было присвоено новое название из-за проблем с авторскими правами. Теперь франшиза будет называться Road Redemption, новая часть которой в данный момент находится в активной стадии разработки.
> 8 levels
> New Winter Track - it is about 3-4x as long as the desert track
> Local Multiplayer - 2 to 4 players in splitscreen mode.

> Added Biker Police - they carry a new baton weapon that you can get by defeating them
> Added additional enemy rider models
> Improved vehicle physics and damage model
> Improved crash mechanics - still a work in progress
> Deflection Move Added to AI and Players. Deflecting an AI has a high probability of disarming the enemy. It still needs a lot more balancing to increase its utility.

> New Weapons - nail bat, police baton, C4, Pipe bombs, possibly more that I am forgetting.
> New Game Types - Survival mode and kill enemy rider missions
> Added a bunch of graphical flourishes and effects.

> I am definitely leaving stuff out. There have been a lot of changes.
Alpha Version 0.001
> This is the first alpha release. It is around 20-30ish minutes of content with melee combat with about 6 weapons and a looping track with a bunch of different difficulty settings and traffic situations.
> Melee weapons in this release include the metal bat, the tire iron, the sword, the sledge hammer, the pipe, and the shovel. These aren't final versions of the weapons, especially the shovel.
> There are three vehicles in the alpha because only these three have complete damage models in place. We will be adding many more in the coming weeks.
> You drive against 7 other bikers in a race to unlock the next level. If you don't get first place you do not advance.
> We have the standard traffic situations, but all the vehicles have real physics and a damage model so there are also some more intense modes where the vehicles are constantly having head on collisions and you are driving a race through this hectic situation where vehicles are upturned and rolling and having these crazy collisions that you have to avoid. This starts happening around level 6 or 7 and may cause slowdown if you have a much older computer or laptop.
> The graphics quality scales from very low, which allows almost any computer to play Road Redemption, all the way up to high graphics, where only high end computers will be able to get 60 fps.
> In the last few levels there is a mode where all the vehicles hate you and try to run you over. These levels are quite difficult.
> You can freely roam over the entire level, but you may experience buggy or experimental game behavior if you stray too far off the course.
