Carnage Racing is a free to play, micro transaction, pay to win Facebook game that was ported to PC. NOW HOLD ON, before you click off this review hear me out. This game went on sale for dirt cheap during 2013 the 2013 holiday sale. I purchased the 4 player pack and gave them out to some friends as gifts. I knew it featured 8 player Multiplayer so I figured, its a racing game, 8 player MP and cheap. how bad can it be?

Carnage Racing is not what I expected, it was more, way more. It has physics that are completely un realistic and un natural, the pace is slow and dragging, the stunts suck and the points you get really don’t matter. But after the end of each race I'm laughing, competitive, happy and craving the next race!

There is something about a game that plays simple, is low key and just does the bare minimum. Micro transactions are gone, pay to win is gone and you get the full game with your initial purchase. The game play is fun and easy to pick up and play no matter your skill level. "Phase Shifting" allows you to warp ahead of other players here and there, and the selection of weapons is limited to 4-5 types, so its not confusing. At the end of the race, you may be a good driver but if you know how to use weapons correctly, you can smack that 1st place outta there!

I love Carnage Racing, its probably some of the best laughs I've had with my homies playing online, please get it and let me know so you can join us!

When I first saw this game in the Steam Store, I instantly bought it as it seemed like it would be fun. I liked the initial idea of a racing/combat game with a more cartoonish feel rather than a destruction derby or demolition type feel. After playing the game for a while and getting the hang of a few things, it was really fun to play. One thing that really seemed missing, though, was an intro control tutorial. It took me a few minutes and a few awkward crashes to realize what keys did what, as I jumped right into the game without realizing that it wouldn't let me know the advanced controls (weapons/phase shifts) in-game. The AI are really competitive and it makes for a good challenge as you work your way through the game.

The real strong point for this game is the fact that only a few maps can be turned into so many different courses through the use of the "phase shift" portals that are placed around the track. These help you gain ground and can help anyone who knows which ones to take to go from a lap down to competing for the front in just a few seconds. I love being able to elude people and switch up my position on the track, as well as avoid weapons and take the lead in a few fun portal jumps. Anyone who likes taking their enemies by surprise or taking a unique look at the world of racing while enjoy the fun and smooth action in Carnage Racing.

That being said, there are a few things I would love to see changed:
-smoother interaction with the roll/flip/spin mechanics and movement controls
-a slight drift/tire spin mechanic which could be used to help players overcome certain areas of the track
-fixes to track "potholes" where cars can suddenly hit walls that aren't there and come to a complete stop

This game will provide hours of entertainment. If you can get the right group together online, there are many fun and spectacular battles to be had. I fully recommend this game to anyone who enjoys simple and fun battle racing.

I started to play this as a "Time Killer" but it turned out to be much better than I expected! Took a minute to understand how to do some of the Tasks for each level, overall a worthwhile purchase!

Needs DLC and a few bug fixes, the interface seems designed for mobile therefore at times (Like the Start Screen) you can't start it with the Gamepad (Xbox 360).
