“For the price tag I highly recommend checking out this sleeper hit. I was shocked at just how much fun it brought me out of nowhere.”
80 – ZTGD

“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.”
78 – Hooked Gamers

“The sense of humor is good, it looks great, and the gameplay is so well tuned that at times you will forget you are playing a driving game altogether.”

Fast paced and exciting car action game that is simply great chaotic fun with plenty of replay value. Both races and battles are thrilling and the game is easy to learn, but hard to master. Grinding the various events to unlock new cars, weapons, stickers, engines, and even sponsors can get incredibly addicting really fast. There have been times where I didn't intend to play more than a couple of races before moving onto something else, but ended up quadrupling that number as the unlocks kept rolling in. But even in defeat, the game stays satisfying and you can earn plenty of money losing as long as you complete the bonus objectives; vice versa if you ignore the bonus objectives and simply win the events. The music is mostly hard rock, which fits well with the action. None of the tunes are very memorable, but they get the job done. You can choose a voice for your character. For mine, I choose an Arnold Schwarzenegger type voice, and he actually says lines from Arnold's actual films, specifically Jingle All the Way (one of my favorites), which gets quoted the most. It gets a bit repetitive hearing the same phrases repeated over and over again, but at first, it was amusing and elicited quite a few chuckles from me.

Seeing how much stuff there is to unlock can be overwhelming to the player at first, especially when they first boot it up, but once you really get into the game, it'll seem too easy. The only thing that would make the game feel more complete is having a better multiplayer community. That way, people would have more of an incentive to buy the cool looking dlc. Nearly ever time I went on, there were only a couple of lobbies, both with very few players. However, whenever I did play an online game, I had an absolute blast; it brought back memories of playing Twisted Metal with friends, and the action was even more insane than the highest difficulty of the single player. Overall, this is easily one of best racing games on steam, especially on the non-sim side. I highly recommend it if you enjoyed the Twisted Metal series growing up, or even if you never got to try it, as it's a very entertaining game that respects the player's time.

Xbox controller recongnized but I have to manually program all of the controls - brake, acceleration, turn left, turning right and about more than a dozen other things.

If the developers were too lazy to do their jobs and program the controls, then so am I. Uninstalled, refunded.

This is a fairly straightforward combat racing game.

While it is a console port, controls can be customised to make the game playable.

A wide range of graphics options allow for modern PC's to be used effectively. The game runs smoothly and looks well enough in 4K.

Gameplay is fairly entertaining, pretty much what you expect from games of this genre. While not the best example of the genre, and lacking a very wide array of vehicles and maps, it's adequate enough and doesn't have any drawbacks, so there's simply no reason to thumb this down.

Let me be honest here right from the beginning:
I hate racing games.

Review:
The first racing game I ever got into that had some form of aggression in it was NASCAR Rumble. You could send tornados accross the track and wipe people out. It was very fun and my mom and I would play it for hours. It's near-to-impossible to find it nowadays or it's extremely expensive if you do. Gas Guzzlers Extreme fills the void NASCAR Rumble once filled.

I've spent 3.2 hours straight playing this game and now it's time for a proper review. The racing is seamless to me, it's enjoyable, and it's very well balanced. The voice acting is clever and fun, and it's just an overall good game. I completed the first tournament in the campaign and love how you get to choose what to do. No liniar story. You can choose to do a race with no weapons, a race with weapons, or the popular 'last person per lap gets knocked out' race. Sometimes there are sponsors to help you get more money and their skins look awesome!

There is full vehicle customization, which I love considering I owned Need for Speed on PS4 and would spend hours customizing my car to make it my own. The game in itself is very well done for someone who doesn't like racing games one bit. I very much enjoyed the sponsored events like deathmatches and capture the flag. This game has more content than I thought it would have!

I recommend this game for anyone who loves racing and wants to blow other cars up. :D

Initially quite fun, but it gets dull fast. You quickly unlock most of the useful stuff, and after that it feels too repetitive. I imagine multiplayer would give it a significant boost, but it was dead whenever I tried.
