Description

Reminiscent of the classic Road Rash, Jacked is a high-octane arcade motorcycle racer featuring over-the-top combat elements. In Jacked, the world's fastest and hottest motorbikes - including the gas turbine powered Marine Turbine Superbike - can be yours.

Race across the USA, from New York to LA, fulfill a variety of missions and steal your enemies' bikes at high speed while they are moving by "jacking" them.

Fight your enemies with baseball bats and tazers, flame them with Molotov Cocktails, shoot them off their rides with shotguns or blow them out of the way with frag grenades. When they are stunned you can jack their bikes - at any speed, on the road or in midair. In some missions you can even take your biker gang along to help you out in your endeavors.

Jacked features an extensive Single Player Mission Mode that includes a big variety of different Race- and Combat Missions. In the Multiplayer Mode you can challenge a friend to a Race or a Gang Battle on the tracks and bikes unlocked in the Mission Mode.

Trivia

Charity

Publisher Xplosiv released the game in support of The Everyman Campaign, run by The Institute of Cancer Research to raise awareness of, and fund research into, testicular and prostate cancer at The Everyman Centre in Europe. For the initial 6 months, Xplosiv will donate 30p from every game sold to The Everyman Male Cancer Campaign with the aim of raising £10,000.

Development

The development history of Jacked is long and complex. The released game is actually based on two games that were in development at different studios and never finished. The first game was also called Jacked and in development at The 3DO Company, with people who had worked on the original Road Rash games. 3DO went bankrupt in 2003 and the game remained unreleased.

Some time later, Sproing Interactive Media GmbH started working on a game based on Jacked with the same concept: Torque Savage Roads. It was supposed to be a movie tie-in with Torque, and to be published by JoWood. Development was halted at the end of 2004 when JoWood decided to drop the movie license and make a new game based on the bike jacking concept, now called Jacked. Still unhappy after the changes, JoWood terminated the contract in June 2005. Empire Interactive snapped up the rights and had the game completely reworked by Sproing to what it is today.
