The grandaddy of battle racers.

User Rating: 9.6 | Rock 'N Roll Racing SNES
Eventhough Super Mario Kart was first Rock n' Roll Racing (RNRR) was better. RNRR had hours of gameplay with unique tracks, cars, and weapons. Despite being a great racer it didn't get all the attention it deserved, and has kind of become a lost treasure in gaming history. With an awesome soundtrack of classic rock songs (in MIDI) playing through out the game RNRR can feel a bit cheesy at times, but that's all part of the fun. For a classic game RNRR is quite advanced allowing gamers to upgrade their cars, depending of how much cash they earned last race. Upgrading involves a bit of strategy, but nothing too complicated. This game has quite a few different cars, but they are leveled meaning some cars are just plain better than others. There are also a number of cool enviroments to race in my favorite being the Ice planet. Each planet has it's own character to race against which is quite amusing. I feel the game is quite easy once you get the hang of it, and the "computer" does seem to play too cheaply either. Overall this is a classic game that should not be forgotten.
