Redneck Rampage Rides Again: Arkansas Xatrix / Interplay 1998

This sequel using the now oldish looking Build engine has Leonard and Bubba managing to hijack one of them fancy flying disks from the invading aliens, but just when they thought they had it made, it took a nosedive into the desert in one of them states west of Texas. When the game opens, you are trying your dangdest to get back to the garden spot that is Hickston. Along the way you square off against vicious jackalopes (rabbits with antlers), rabid pit bulls, clone bikers who've watched Blue Velvet one too many times, cheerleaders chucking dynamite batons, and a pack of other critters ranging from placid pigs to scary skeeters. There's only a handful of new weapons and enemies, and it still uses the clumsy multiplayer mode of the original which means everyone's gotta start at the same time and. But the pleasure here's in the details, friends - and the best are the new insult lines the enemies spout. The Skinny Old Coot from the first game won a free trip to Vegas, and he must've paid as much attention to the lingo of the locals as he did to the card count at the blackjack table. When you get close to him he cackles "Groooveee, bay-bee, he he he...." just as he's whipping out a hog leg to end your time on this here planet. Move up into the higher levels, and the Coot starts shouting stuff like "Craps, you lose!" and "New shooter comin' out!" But my fave has gotta be Daisy Mae, the clone cheerleader with the TNT batons. She's got so many good lines: "I'm gonna slap you bald-headed!"; "Do you like that, boy?"; "Were you raised in a barn?"; "Now you've gone and done it!" (one of Leonard's multiplayer taunts); and the hands-down winner for best line in a computer game: "Now I'm gonna have to open up a can of whoop-ass on you!" - the same line Leonard used at the start of the original Redneck Rampage. With 14 single-player levels - most of 'em really big - and some interesting diversions involving motorcycles mounted with machine guns and hydro-boats equipped with mortars, there's much great action here.
