It's time again to head out on the highway in this combative (though also simplistic and somewhat redundant) motorcycle game. In Hellrider 3, you're a biker in what looks like it might be the Pacific Northwest, or somewhere equally as woody. As your cruise the mean streets on your new motorcycle, sometimes you have to avoid a variety of hazards (seismic anomalies, meteor strikes, or oncoming traffic). At other times, you'll have to take out the skeletons who pop up from under the ground and the members of a biker gang who are terrorizing all the little old ladies who only drive on Sunday when they go to church. Oh, and you also sometimes get into street races.

Regardless of what your goal is at any given moment, this manages to be simple arcade fun. There are power-ups that give you opportunities to shoot or toss bombs at the bad bikers, there are some jumps, and there are stretches of road when your bike goes a lot faster. The thing is, once you've gone on a couple rides, you've kind of done it all. Sure, the roads are always different, and there are other hazards along the way, but not enough to keep you gripping the road for very long (at least not in one sitting). Still, with a fun look, simple controls, and some good-natured humor, there's still enough to Hellrider 3 to get your motor running.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
