Excerpt: One of the best things about the annual games lull of the beginning of the year is that I get to catch up on backlog. The games that have been sitting on my shelf or on my system untouched, the games that I didn't give a second glance to because the AAA releases of the year were all waiting to be...
Summary: Unfortunately there isn’t a whole lot to warrant playing Gas Guzzlers Extreme after you’re done with the campaign mode and experiencing the variety of game modes. If you can find anybody to play with online then you are going to have a blast.
Summary: Ever watched Death Race and thought, “that would make a fun computer game”? Well Gas Guzzlers Extreme is probably the closest you’ll get at the moment. Jumping into the career mode of the game is as good a place to start as any.
Summary: Gas Guzzlers Extreme is a tremendous vehicular combat game which honors titles from a bygone era. The combat is spectacular, accessible and most of all fun which rarely disappoints. There are a multitude of races on offer to suit a variety of different players.
Excerpt: Let me tell you a Greenlight story. One that should feel awfully familiar by now. Gamepires, a small development team from Croatia, put their first game, Gas Guzzlers: Combat Carnage, on Steam’s beauty pageant service shortly after launch.
Summary: With a good sense of speed and a well-rounded collection of licensed cars, Gas Guzzlers Extreme makes a great first impression. Too bad it's marred by a horrible sense of humor and rubber band A.I. drivers.
Conclusion: With the tournaments behind me, and my curiosity for its multiplayer offerings at an end, I’m not upset at the time I spent racing around, over, and through the mangled metal bodies of my competition. There was fun to be had, and I had it, but its not a return trip I will be making any time soon.
Excerpt: With installments in the Need for Speed and Forza franchises still on the horizon it may be a bit premature to classify Gas Guzzlers Extreme as the “Best Racing Game of 2013” but it’s certainly a strong contender.
Conclusion: Gas Guzzlers Extreme is still worth the plunge if you’re at all intrigued by a return to its simple diet of racing carnage however. The mechanics are solid, it looks pretty, and much like a recently resurging obsession with Counter Strike: GO , I found myself dipping in and out of the singleplayer...
Conclusion: This game is a welcome addition to the combat racing genre and although it adds nothing new to it, it holds up well against games like Twisted Metal . This genre is severely under-served on the PC and I encourage anyone who enjoyed the likes of Interstate ‘76 to pick this game up.
