3-D motorcycle racing game
Although the game carries the brand name of Freeverse’s popular homage to the classic arcade Time Pilot, Moto Racer has more in common with another classic game–Electronic Arts’ motorcycle racing game Road Rash. In Moto Racer, you hop on the back of a roaring motorcycle as you race across various landscapes, ranging from urban skylines to sandy beaches, forests to deserts.
The roads in Moto Racer are wide and it’s usually possible to see ahead far enough to anticipate what you need to do, but I still found the game’s controls to be a bit twitchy–I had a tough time keeping my bike on the pavement much of the time. You can dial down the difficulty, as well, which reduces the number of bad guys and cars on the road.–Peter Cohen
