[PlayStation 5] Moto Roader MC Review

[PlayStation 5] Moto Roader MC Review
  • On March 7, 2022

Top-down retro racer Moto Roader MC from Ratalaika Games is ready to go on PlayStation. Learn more about it in our Moto Roader MC review!


Top-down retro racer Moto Roader MC from Ratalaika Games is ready to go on PlayStation. It’s the third game in the Moto Roader series and was originally released by Masaya games way back in 1992 for the PC-Engine CD – the equivalent of the TurboGrafx-CD – but never got a release outside of Japan. It’s now 2022, and you can take this racer for a spin on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5!

Moto Roader MC Review - 1


In Moto Roader MC, five cars take on a variety of wacky arcade-style futuristic tracks as you play either in the regular Race Mode, take on the Time Attack Mode where every second counts, or go into the Omake section, which has two cars fight it out in a game of soccer on one of three available stages. But this is no ordinary racer. Each vehicle can either launch a missile forward or drop a bomb behind them to keep all opponents on high alert. If a car is hit by one or the other, it will be incapacitated for a bit, so be careful!

Races can get crazy hectic very fast since it’s easy to lose track of your vehicle if you’re not paying attention. All of the tracks take place on a single screen. While some of them are similar to what you’d find in other top-down racing games, a lot of them have color-coded exit and enter areas that have you driving out of the screen to come out of the next side. The courses are split into five groups of five tracks, each under particular themes: Circuit, City, Nature, Marchen, Special. As a heads-up, the Special tracks definitely deserve that category.

As for the trophy list, it’s a very easy one to complete since it requires that you race at least once on each of the 25 tracks that the game has to offer. The game will register that you’ve raced in a track once you’ve spent at least three seconds on it, so you don’t even have to race around or win! Since there are 25 tracks to race on, that means the trophy list is split into 20 Silver trophies and 5 Gold trophies to unlock before you can add a new Platinum trophy to your collection. And since this is a Cross-Buy title, that means you’ll get two Platinum trophies if you have a PS5 and play the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions!

Moto Roader MC Review - 4

Moto Roader MC launched way back in 1992, and it’s now getting a new chance to shine on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 thanks to Ratalaika Games. It’s a hectic and fast-paced racer with a handful of gameplay modes, with a couple that can be played with up to four players if you have enough controllers for it. Moto Roader MC is out on PlayStation as a Cross-Buy title with a budget $6.99 price.

This Moto Roader MC review is based on a PlayStation 5 copy provided by Ratalaika Games.
