Summary: This is less a racing game than a tag game. Every time a car gets a screen length ahead the game stops a screen pops up giving the score and then then restarting the race. This makes for avery disjointed race, if you play this with four players, then it occurs every 5 seconds. Hardly fast flowing is it? The graphics are pretty ropey and the driving model poor. And to top it all of its a CD and the loading times are nauseatingly slow. Do not buy it.
Summary: My brother bought mashed about 1-2 years ago and it is increadable! After completing it on most games there would not be much to do but on this the 2 player arcade thing is amazing and so much fun. If this game was going for £40 i would still buy it, it is just that good!
Summary: It would be very sad indeed to play mashed by yourself - it is a game to play with friends, but as such is one of the best. You race little plasticky cars around (tackily unrealistic) tracks. GT this ain't. However, the little five minute races are as addictive as anything - fist fights aplenty will result from prolonged multiplayer use, and overall this makes for a great fun little game. (And it's great value for the money, esp.
Summary: I am a lover of cheap and chearful games, and this is no different. Mashed is an over-the-top viewed racer, in much the mould of the micro machines series (even down to the same system of scoring points when one car reaches the top of the screen), which is hardly suprising, given that developer supersonic were responsible for micro machines V3 for the playstation.
Summary: This game is one of the most entertaining games around, if you have a multitap and 3 mates (lucky you!). Unfortunately, a multitap comes in at around 3 times the price of the game, but if you get the set-up right... i.e. 4 guys in a comfy room, you can easily play entire days away. After we all played it, we all went away and bought it immediately. Recommended if you are a multiplayer kindof guy/gal. Never played the single player so no comment there...
Great game but some tracks more difficult to master than others.

Excerpt: This is a great fast paced racing game. You can compete either against the computer or against another competitor. For this you require a hand held game controller preferably USB connected. In this way you can have up to 4 players. I havent tried out this feature as yet so cant comment. As you win each level it unlocks another feature, there are 3 parts to each track. There are bonus tracks to be found too. You can chose different cars and different modes.
Summary: Mashed sounded a great game and looked good on the back of the cover, but the game is useless when you get it as its graphics and weapons are poor. Also its like micro machines. where all you see are a bunch of tiny little cars going round a track. DONT BUY!!!
Summary: Dont believe the hype! This game is OK, but thats about it. Ive been waiting for the appearance of a really good racing game that involves guns, explosions and being down right nasty to your opponents; and this just aint it. Its a step in the right direction but really didnt yank my chain at all.
Summary: This game is much like micro machines, but far better. Don't buy it if you intend to get a decent single player game, because this is simply not. It is however one of the greatest multiplayer games ever devised! Get your friends round (or take it to theirs!) and away you go for hours upon hours. You can airstrike your opponents when they kill you, so great for payback.
Summary: Do you dream danger? Do you? Mashed is just a few clicks away, the highly addictive game is so superior it has had thousands of buyers hooked on it for days upon days on end. When I tested the Mashed PS2 game, I knew what to expect, tacky graphics, unrealistic cars and weapons mounted on your car? Are you mad? Yes, Mashed is mad, mad is it's middle name. But, was this just another Destruction Derby, or a Gran Turismo Hardcore style?
