A game that revels in its own stupidity, LocoCycle is simple, mindless fun for anyone hoping to experience arcade thrills in a game that doesn't ever make the mistake of taking itself too seriously.

Also, Tom Savini.

This hidden gem of a game might seems dumb at first but you soon realize you're on an action packed thrill ride that has no qualms in stopping. It's not just a simple racing game. It's character action, shmup, and fighting game all in one! And the FMVs give this game its silly b rated charm. Can you spot Troma creator Lloyd Kaufman? Do yourself a favor and ignore the big name reviews. Buy this title. Easily a shining diamond in Steam's ruff.

Poorly done Xbox port - game could be enjoyable if it wasn't so technically flawed. Unplayable.

Looking at screenshots of this game feels 15 times better than playing it. I will admit that some banter between the bike and Pablo is funny (not "haha" funny, but "exhale quickly through nose" funny), but the cutscenes are just terrible. The gameplay is best described as a polished endless runner-type game, but with unexciting combat and levels. If they actually made the bike feel like a bike instead of whatever it is now, that might've gone a long way in making the gameplay enjoyable.

Hidden gem which can look like a bad game at the first glance.

This game is riddled with multiple problems and quirks that do not always work well- which can scare most people off, especially with its pricing (that was dropped down over time).

I fell in love with the story, the game universe flowing in jokes and absurdity at its finest - creating the feeling of going along with the joke and having fun. Main characters support that all the way through, making the things happening on the screen even more absurd in the b-grade movie cutscenes similar to the likes of Roundabout.

Before getting it you should definetely look up some of its humour - tastes differ, and if you don't enjoy the jokes or akward cutscenes, it may be best to pass this game. If you do like them - take it without thinking, you will definitely have a great time.

Main problems for me were bland gameplay (which is usually somewhat fixed by adding new enemy types and upgrades) and clear aim for consoles - some of the controls were horrid.

Other problems include optional QTE, weird story arcs, etc.

Point is I had a great time and a lot of laughing, enjoying the game all the way through. Despite many problems that the game has, the main characters and the silly story made it one of my favorite games that I love to replay once in a while.

PS: One of the best examples of devs making game "for fun" of the process - its raw, but filled with fun and excitement to make something new. (Thus the countless dev files with "making of" in the game)
