Let’s rush through the rest of this, since the memories are far too painful. Graphics: blocky and totally out of place in a world of 3D-enhanced games. Sound: marred by the campy twang of rodeo announcer Don Gay. Replay value: almost nil, because the first time is too disappointing.
Die Grafik bewegt sich trotz happiger Hardware-Anforderungen auf Shareware-Niveau und die Vertonung ist mies.
Far more ridiculous is Extreme Bullrider's bullfighting game, in which a clown runs around collecting floating icons while avoiding piles of bright green dung and a slow bull. I've never seen bright green dung before, but then, I've never seen fleeing rodeo clowns referred to as bullfighting, either. Extreme Rodeo also includes barrel racing and calf roping with horses that move like battery-operated toys. The graphics are rough, the animations are crude, and some guy named Don Gay keeps cackling out commentary. Imagine a sixty-year-old Jethro Bodine hollering over your shoulder while you play a computer game and you get the idea.

As you can tell from this extremely short review, Extreme Bullrider has very little if any redeeming qualities and is simply not worth wasting time nor words on. This game offers very little variety in gameplay and, considering I beat the high score on the hardest bull twenty minutes after installing it, there's hardly any need to take it out of the box. If you're one of the unfortunate ones who has already bought this or has received it for a gift, I'm truly sorry. This game is stinkier than a cow pie and about as fun as stepping in one.
There is absolutely nothing to recommend in this game. It lacks decent graphics, it lacks decent sound, it lacks decent gameplay if you can call hitting two keys and hoping you don't get thrown off gameplay. Stay as far away from this as you can, and just pray that there's never an Extreme Bullrider II.
