OK class, settle down. It's time for a little history lesson. Super Hang On is the sequel to the 1985 arcade game, Hang On (here's a link to the Master System version of that game). This sequel first appeared in the arcades in 1987, where its realistic-to-an-extent motorbike cabinets provided the players with more thrills than a coffee-fuelled bull in Nicholas Cage's antiques room. Realizing that they were onto a winner -just like many of their other 80's arcade offerings- SEGA converted Super Hang On into one of their early Mega Drive releases in 1989, and kept them ticking over until Sonic the Hedgehog laced up his sneakers.
In a nutshell Super Hang On is Out Run on motorbikes.Read more ›
If Hang-On was like OutRun then Super Hang-On is Turbo OutRun (both are made by Yu Suzuki). It mostly the same game with a new boost button and slightly different courses. Only the OutRuns are fun and nice to look at with pleasant music. Super Hang-On offers lots of grey race tracks with...nothing by the side of the road and has very bland music. And although there are other bikes on the road you're not racing any of them as your just chasing the clock.
I kept moaning "where's the punch and kick button" too, thinking I was playing Road Rash.
Ultimately, it's worth getting for the 12 easy trophies.
