With a slogan like “try and try until you win” you can already tell how addictive this game can really be. The graphics are superb and at some spots are so realistic they can be considered on the edge of "extremely" graphic especially for younger children. The beginning theme music has nothing on the sound effects that the characters make and the sounds of when a character gets hurt or is dying can be slightly disturbing though.
The object of the game is to go as far as you can with your motorized character without losing your life, limbs or blood. Each level of path you travel down is more like an obstacle course though. Filled with wrecking balls, spikes and landmines and breakable projectiles such as bottles, chairs and televisions. Each obstacle that you run into can cost you any where from some blood to a limb, but if you lose your head or get blown up then it is game over.
There is an amusing cast of characters to choose from each which their own special ability to match their motorized vehicle. There is the doorman on a Segway who has the ability to jump, the old man in a jet-fueled wheelchair with the ability to boost, a father and his young child on a bicycle with the ability to brake, the couple on a moped with the ability to boost but just slightly, an obese middle aged woman in a motorized shopping cart has the ability to jump, a heavy set redneck on a ride on lawn mower with the ability to jump, a explorer in a mining cart that has the ability to hook up to other carts and last but not least Santa and his sled with a limited ability to fly, which by the way is not pulled by rein-deers but by elves. The most amusing character is probably the lawn mower red neck who can run over food to eat and occasionally random people that get in his way.
The general controls for the game is the space bar, shift, ctrl and the four directional arrows on the keyboard. The letter z is also used to eject your character from their vehicle. This game is filled with non-stop action from swinging on ropes to reaching over head paths. The yellow and black paths lead to the finish line but good luck getting there.
