    "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 matt...

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

    Rated on September 18, 2009 by Hellbishop

    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 relaxe...

    Bloody Fun

    Rated on July 12, 2005 by optophobic

    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 ...

    A true timeless classic

    Rated on July 06, 2013 by Weapon7x

    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 b...

    Best Racing Series.... ever!

    Rated on February 18, 2006 by DryvBy

    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...

    With no doubt!

    Rated on March 17, 2006 by BIGART312

    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 re...

    Once upon a time, we were innocent.

    Rated on October 02, 2007 by simpaticoman

    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 individu...
