    Haha! Yeah the music in Road Rash 3 strays into nails on a blackboard territory I gotta say. Whenever I play the third game, which is extremely playable in it's defense, I mute the music!

    The composition is good, the actual instrument choices sound like distorted farts.

    Road Rash 3 wins in every category for me in comparison to 1 and 2. Graphics, game play, music, sound and extras. Skitchin and Road Rash 3 are just so damn Genesis and should be in every argument for why the system is different/better then Snes.

    Platformer- Sonic 3 and Knuckles
    Run and Gun- Gunstar Heroes
    Adventure- Story of Thor
    Action- Shinobi 3

    Road Rash I & II have a nice emphasis on bass and drums, giving depth and heaviness to the music. The guitar really sounds loud and distorted, and rock guitars are usually distorted (though not always sounds like farts as in those games...).

    Road Rash II, while using the same engine from RR I, has a bit lower quality compositions, but still sounded great.

    Road Rash III has tiny bass & drums and somewhat better guitars sounds, while the song compositions are a mixed bag.

    I love most things about Road Rash 3, the only thing I don't like is the music. Road Rash II for me was the pinnacle in terms of the franchise's music. I could listen to the title screen music for hours. What a beat!

    Prelimary variations post. This game was released with these differences.

    Cases
    1. Plastic case with Electronic Arts logo stamping. Cart holder can hold either the large EA or standard Genesis cart.
    2. Cardboard box with spot for cart (Majesco)
    3. Cardboard slipcover box (Majesco)

    Art inserts (plastic case only)
    1. Normal art
    2. with "Head to Head" label
    *** unlike other games, there are different cuts to the artwork that trim off the edges, but there doesn't seem to be more than 1 style of case.

    Carts
    1. EA large cart Made in Taiwan
    2. EA large cart Assembled in USA
    3. regular cart, Sega Assembled in Mexico (with some variation to patents stamps)
    4. regualr cart, Assembled in Mexico black label

    Manuals
    1. Color Manual (in plastic case releases)
    2. Grayscale Manual (in cardboard box releases)

    Despite the plastic case being able to hold either cart, it does not seem that it was released with the smaller cart. I can not find any smaller carts that are not made in Mexico.

    Here are the valid configurations at this time.
    1. Plastic case with either USA or Taiwan EA cart
    2. Plastic case with "Head to Head" label and USA EA cart
    3. Cardboard box with Sega/Mexico cart
    4. Cardboard slipcover box with Sega/Mexico black label cart

    I have 2 of the Mexico carts and they have a stamping variation in the Patents text on the cart, but I do not know if that means one of these carts used to have the black label or not.

    I like the original Road Rash the best. It has much better music than II and the tracks are better. I can listen to the original Rash music endlessly. I really wanted to like the 2-player mode but the controls are lousy. In 2-player mode, it seems like the controls were made for full screen size rather than half.

    More adrenaline-pumping motorbike action with slight enhancements on all the aspects of the game: various bikes to choose between (once you get enough dough to get 'em, of course), better sprites, tracks with more hazards, several extra scalimg effects and humorous cutscenes. I, for one, prefer the music here: Ron Hubbard got more proficient with what sounds like the GEMS engine, and sound effects are WAY better than its predecessor's. What remains are the smooth animation (now with extra hilarious clashes and accidents) and responsive controls.

    I love them all to some extent, but RRII is the pinnacle of the series for me.
