It's a pretty fun racing game. It may not be in everyone's taste, but I would recommend it if you just want a fun arcade racer to kill some time.

One of the best racing games I've played, full of action. It sort of reminds me of the old Highway 35 games. I definitly would recommend this game.

This game is a lot of fun. If that's enough for you than stop there, but here's why: It's gameplay is so different and fast paced that it seem almost glitchy but hilariously fun. I would only recommend if you have 2 or more friends to play with as it is a GREAT party game. (Online that is, it doesn't have local multiplayer as far as I'm aware of.) Deffinately buy the 4 pack if it's on sale.

This game is unexpectedly fantastic. I did not know what I was getting into with "Carnage Racing" but I soon realized it should instead be named, "Teleporting Racing" Because that's what it is. And it is ♥♥♥♥ING AWESOME. For the price, you can't go wrong, the online is fun as ♥♥♥♥ I cant get enough :D

I basically got all the possible stars during the free weekend, and enjoyed playing this game! I bought it so I could keep playing. Only annoyance now is that it gets a bit boring once you upgrade all your cars and have no one to play against. There is no LAN or local multiplayer, which stinks because this otherwise would be a good replacement for Cro-Mag Rally on my Mac. Apparently this game is on Facebook and iOS--if you let PC/Mac versions play against players in either of those systems there would be a lot of players online. Now, online multiplayer works and gets you into a game, but the only players appear to be bots if no one else is online.

I bought this game on the recent free weekend, i bought it a 4-pack and game the extra copies to 3 friends of mine. It was really cheap, yes, but not worth it. I would like to start this review by saying this was not only an mobile game once, but also a facebook game. Yeah, you heard it right. Even the developers know this was a bad idea.
The game started fun, i played some time with my friends and we were having fun, the problem was, that the game is completely unbalanced. Think of Mario Kart, now focus on the unfair things, like the freakin Blue Shell, now think that if you play more than everybody you will have an oportunity to upgrade the blue shell in a way that it multiplies and hits every other player. Now forget all of that, because this game is even more unfair. You have an item that simply teleports you to the nearest player in front of you no matter how far you are, and you can upgrade it after grinding some money in the game. When you do upgrade this teleport to the maximum (like i did), you can teleport to 3 players ahead of you. So if you are playing it with 2-3 friends (like me), you will always appear right next to the first place. This game do not reward your skills, it rewards your luck. Also, if you play more than your friends, you can upgrade all your items to the max and make the game impossible for the ones who have less time or are busy playing actual well-made games.
But that is not the worst part, when playing multiplayer (even though the game was repetitive as hell and had a lack of maps) i actually had some kind of fun. What really made me come here to write this negative review was the singleplayer.
After my friends left the game i decided to play the campaing alone so i could unlock the other cars (no, you can't freakin unlock them multiplayer). The AI wasn't a big deal, the challengs were not that hard. The problem is that when i got through a part of the game, completed all challenges in all the missions i played, and when i was trying to restart a race the game crashed. Ok, normal. I opened it again and... my save was gone! Simple as that, all the upgrades i had, all my stars, everything was gone.
Maybe you are thinking i only wrote this review because i was angry, but the game is actually really unbalanced and repetitive. Also, i have all my reasons to be angry, i lost my frekin save.

Pros:
+Kind of fun multiplayer.
+Ok graphics.
+Good sensation when exploding someone.

Cons:
-Repetitive.
-Unbalanced.
-Rewarding the wrong players.
-Unsafe save file.
-SinglePlayer sucks.
-Steam port of a Mobile-Facebook game.

Conclusion
Don't buy this game, if you want a arena racing game to play with friends, go buy Post Apocalyptic Mayhem or Zero Gear.

I played the heck out of this game when it was free. It was free on Steam for a limited time. And I really enjoyed myself.

I think the idea of a MMO Racing game is quite cool, and if done right, could be awesome. And this game did it right. For a free game, that is. The vehicles are all cool, and the upgrades are well-done and the whole way the game is handled is pretty good. For a free game, again.

Every free game has glitches. And boy, does this game have glitches. At times, the ground would disappear and I would be left to hopelessly fall through the earth which turned into the sky. And this would happen again and again, and not just to me- but to my friends, also. Sure, it was funny the first time, but it's not always the first time.

The tracks were basically the same track, except with a few different things. There isn't much variety then.

But why did I have fun? Because the multiplayer was pretty damn good. Playing with friends was relatively easy and incredibly worthwile once you got started. I did want to get the new cars, so I played the single-player and tried to collect all the stars.

But it was free then. The game eventually asked me to buy it. For $2.50! I was going to buy that, but I just forgot. And then, the next day, it was $10. $10?!

No. The game really just isn't worth $10. Not until it's glitches are cleared up and there is more variety in the tracks.
