This game is a lot of fun. Think Excitebike, in terms of how it plays. Basically, you’re attempting to reach the finish line, while racking up as much points as you can, and completing as many objectives as you can. Because there’s three lanes on (almost) every track, there’s always an objective or two (or more) that you can’t get in one go, so there’s always an incentive to go back and replay the level. Perhaps I never sat down and studied the moves, but it does feel like you can just mash buttons and get a really good high score, so I don’t like that necessarily, but on the other hand, it is a good game to mess around with. The game includes a level editor that you can create your own tracks with, but I didn’t get to mess around with it too much. The one thing that I will say that’s negative about the game is that there’s a certain track that comes out of nowhere and is just down right infuriating; it took me hours and hours to beat. Still, I would recommend this game, and while I haven’t played the second game, there’s a bundle that includes Joe Danger 2 for very little extra. Something to consider.
