Personal review
Nice racing game with fast graphics (although I whished it had more scenery along the road) and good controls. Besides the arcade mode, which is a pure race to the next checkpoint in a given amount of time, there is a motivating original mode. Here you race against a computer opponent, tune and repair your motorbike, hire a mechanic and follow a mini storyline. All in all a good early racing game for the MegaDrive.

Official description
Blue light and you're off to a series of the most exhilarating races found the world over. And the best part is you get to choose your course and set your pace. The bad part is, if you can't keep up with the pack, the game's over. So set your sights on victory, but keep your eyes on the road. One moment of unfocused concentration could end up in sheer desperation. 'Cause when these bikes go down, it's hard getting up.

So take a look at your options and go for the style of play which suits you best. There's the arcade version of Super Hang-On for the masters and now there's a Mega Drive/Genesis original: the circuit race. During the circuit race, you'll race against an opponent aided by a trusted mechanic and generous sponsor. Your mechanic will keep your bike purring like a kitten while your sponsor's there to provide prize money so you can buy the parts to make it happen. Now all you'v gotta do is ride like the devil and win. You'll face seven rivals in all.

The arcade version is pure racing for the thrill of victory. You'll cover four continents in all trying to beat the clock and advance to another stage of play. If the clock beats you, the game's over. Luckily, there's different levels of skill, so start out easy and watch your progress as you go along. The only thing between you and the winner's circle it time.
