    All You see... BLOOD

    First I'd like to thank the makers, creators, and all of those people for creating this game. Gameplay: 10- Awsome, Blood, Gore, Everything else you can think of. A downer is that you don't have a good grip or tractio... Read Full Review

    The 5 Minute Game

    I say it's the 5 minute game because after 5 minutes, you realize "Man, I wasted my flippin' money.". So here's what goes on. Take Carmageddon 2, try to port it to a lower-end console, and what do you have? Crap. This ga... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Carmageddon

  • Review Score:8.3

    "It is up to you to save civilisation as we know it... in cars." That intro line will remain with me until I die XD

    Forget racing, this game is about pure unadulterated violent FUN. Yes, fun. I realise it's 2006 now, and there have been many racing games since. But none have approached Carmageddon's subject matter, not even close. ... Read Full Review

    One could not ask for a better stress reliever then CARMAGEDDON!

    To think this game came out in 1997 yet is still so playable and satisfying today with its solid gameplay. CARMAGEDDON is a pure visceral thrill ride of stress venting that leaves me totally relaxed afterwards with it... Read Full Review

    Bloody Fun

    Carmageddon was one of those games back in high school that I use to play on a bad day when I was pissed at the world. This was before the joys of GTA or Manhunt or anything other evil/bloody/violent game really was arou... Read Full Review

    One of the best driving games ever. Seriously.

    This game isn't about smashing pedestrians with cruelty. I remember how i started playing it. First i got demo, and when i ran it, the first thing that surprised my was interface - it was terrible, with this bleeding ha... Read Full Review

    A true timeless classic

    This game holds a place in history. First I want to start by stating what I read (based on curiosity myself) and that is that the game is designed after deathrace 2000. It was originally supposed to be modeled after mad ... Read Full Review

    Best Racing Series.... ever!

    If you've never played Carmageddon, let me paint you a picture. An old lady is walking across the street. She stops. Her walker is stuck on a pebble. She tries to wiggle around it but she can't. A car is coming. A red ca... Read Full Review

    Carmageddon

    Carmageddon touches that particular collective nerve that fuses the wholesome popularity of the All-American Racing Game with the homicidal singularity of the 70s cult film into an onscreen experience that can only be co... Read Full Review

    With no doubt!

    Review for a 1997 game: The graphics and the interaction between the cars, pedestrians and scenery is all first rate. Each of the cars is very detailed, mainly down to the fact that they've been rendered with polygons... Read Full Review

    Once upon a time, we were innocent.

    As always happens when innocence is lost, it is lost forever. I have just search for innocence in Wikipedia and see what I've found: Innocence is a term that describes the lack of guilt of an individual, with respect to ... Read Full Review
