MOTOROADER MC (MASAYA / NCS)

SUPER CD-ROM 2 (JAPANESE VERSION)

"Yikes! This game is too damn hard! And I thought that Rally Championship was the toughest racing game on the PCE... pfew!". Yep, those were the words that came in my head, while playing Motoroader MC for the first time. ^_^ And, believe me, my opinion hasnīt changed that much, even after playing several matches: I still believe that Motoroader MC is one of the hardest PC-ENGINE titles.

After the release of Motoroader and Motoroader II, which are quite uninteresting HU-Card racing games, Masaya created this great title for the happy owners of a System Card 3. While the Motoroader HU-Cards are among the most letargic racing games ever, slower than a slug propelled by phenobarbital capsules, Motoroader MC is quite an exciting title, recommender to players with fast reflexes and ability to stay foccused all the time.

 

The game itself is not that original. The player can choose among the Race Mode, Time Attack or the cool Omake, which is some sort of soccer game with cars! ^_^ You can also choose to play with armed (bombs and missiles) or unarmed cars. A very interesting feature is the option to play with up to 5 simultaneous players (using the Turbo Tap).

 

Motoroader MC has excellent graphics, with detailed and quite original scenaries. The soundtrack is pretty nice, as well, with cool tunes that fit perfectly the desperate races showed on screen. The biggest problem with Motoroader MC is certainly its extreme difficulty on some stages, which will definitely put your patience and sanity to the test.

  

But even this little problem isnīt reason enough to spoil Motoroader MC, one of the few PCE racing games that are actually good. If you enjoy strong emotions, lots of tension and a beginning of a nervous breakdown, this is your game! ^_^"
