Road Redemption is the Kickstarted love-labor of some guys who realized EA was never going to bring back Road Rash. It perfects Road Rash’s idea (“it’s hilarious to swing heavy objects at stuff while riding a motorcycle”) by adding modern hotness: random tracks, unlockables, splitscreen co-op, and all that stuff.

It just so happens that I used to know a kid who thought Road Rash was “The Best Game Ever, dude.” I could write maybe 13,000 words about him. I don’t have time to do that today, so instead I made a video in which you can look at this sweet new game while I tell you a little bit about my personal experience being a teenager in the 1990s.
