Road Rash II is a Sega Genesis/Mega Drive game released by Electronic Arts in 1993. It's the sequel to 1991's Road Rash and was the first to be released for a 16-bit system. The game features the same basic premise of its predecessors: A roadside race from town to town with bikes, punches, kicks, weapons and nitros to give you an edge - all while avoiding the police or else you'll lose points.

The player assumes the role of one of nine bikers as they travel along various tracks that snake through 3D environments. Races start out in small towns and take place on very mountainous courses that feature mud-pits, sharp turns, los Angeles roofs, farms and seaside highways. In addition to avoiding traffic (or running into it), players must also be careful of their opponents' attacks and police officers who will try to ticket them.

Each course has three levels of difficulty; Easy routes are fairly straight forward with no curves or jumps while Hard routes require plenty of skillful maneuvering and boost usage but offer higher rewards for completion. Players will earn cash for every round completed which can be used to improve their bike's stats such as acceleration, top speed, handling and brakes. This makes it easier to get past opponents in consecutive races but also increases your chances of being caught by the law!

There are four game modes available including Race where you simply try to cross the finish line first no matter what; Bum Rush where your points are determined by how many opponents you knock off their bikes; Duel where two players face off against each other in a head-to-head showdown; And Takedown which tasks players with collecting all items scattered throughout each level before time runs out or they get arrested by the police. There is also split screen multiplayer which is great fun on long journeys.

Graphically this game looks great even today, with bright colors and highly detailed backgrounds that draw on elements from both California and Italy’s countryside landscape – something not seen much at that time in gaming culture. The sound effects really get you if you have good speakers - expect plenty of mad engine buzzes, biker curses and wailing sirens whenever you run afoul of cops!

Overall Road Rash 2 stands as one of best motorcycle racing titles ever released on Sega Genesis/Mega Drive systems; From its excellent soundtrack right down to its intense gameplay this classic will provide endless hours of fun sure to bring back fond memories -so grab your helmet and get ready for some serious road rashing!
