Did You Know?

Trivia

The sound effects used for Ben's bike were a combination of a lion roar, a Bengal tiger growling and a jet engine whistle. See more »

Goofs

None of the bikers in the game appear to utilize any form of critical safety gear, like helmets (although some wear knee pads). Given infinite number of instances Ben can crash his bike in fight sequences (and one particularly bad accident that figures into the basic plot), it is highly unlikely that Ben or any of the other bikers (e.g. the Vultures, as seen in at the end of the game, unharmed) would have escaped serious injury from all high-speed bike crashes that they endure, even if they were wearing safety gear.

Quotes

[first lines]
Ben: [narrating] Whenever I smell asphalt, I think of Maureen. That's the last sensation I had, before I blacked out: the thick smell of asphalt. And the first thing I saw when I woke up was her face. She said she'd fix my bike. Free. No strings attached. I should have known then that things are never that simple. Yeah, when I think of Maureen I think of two things: asphalt... and trouble.

Pretty darn good
27 September 2000 | by lacrimosa_de_magpyrSee all my reviews

This game's a great time waster, fun from the first frame till the credits and the funny little bit after them.

Sure, the story's pretty thin, but the images are great, the music's great and the game's so much fun.

So, on a rainy day, why not head out on the ol' mine road for a while?
