Check It

Look guys new background! And over on the right you will find an awesome poll!

So yea, Went to the Salvation Army Thrift store a month or two back and picked up a few games one being this game right here:

That's right JET FREAKING MOTO. Now I haven't played this game since '99 so I wasn't sure how well it was going to hold up, So I get a friend over and throw it into my PS2. As soon as I got to the main screen the music alone took me right back to my 90's childhood. So the first thing we do is run off and get a cheat to access all tracks, then after we chose our riders the trash talk began. Being so long since I played it I was worried that I was going to suck, but as soon as we started everything came rushing back to me, all the little tricks and short cuts, how I use to hit those grappling towers just right. He wasn't half bad him self but I managed to come in 1st for all but the swamp level.

The graphics may have dated, and the whole game has that 90's "Extreme" thing going on complete with Mountain Dew advertising. But I would be a liar to say it's no longer fun, the soundtrack fits the game perfectly and gets your adrenalin pumping as you try to get around some of the insanely laid out levels at extreme speeds without going over the edge.

Even if you know what your doing one miscalculation in speed and you can clip your head sending yourself flying off your hoverbike into the abyss, giving your competition a chance to blow right by you.

If you see it cheap and like racers I recommend you pick it up, got mine for $1.99 and its been worth every penny.
