“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.”

This game needs more love. It is Fun, Fast Paced, and full of action.

Gas Guzzlers leans into the shooter and battle aspects, but there are straight races to be had, in addition to Arena Deathmatches and Elimination Races.

There is a significant single player experience and online bots to get you started.

if you enjoyed Twisted Metal, or the Flatout series, you will likely enjoy this immensely.

8.5 / 10

Really hope the developers have something new coming up. This game is awesome, something I've been looking for since Vigilante 8. Even though it's racing and not just car combat, the racing part of it is still very enjoyable.

Capture the flag is quite competitive, you're not always just with crap AI, they do actually help.

- Lots of upgrades, unlocks, races and cars

- Beautiful visuals

- Great humor

- Great AI, can be rather challenging

- Shortcuts on various tracks, always something to look for.

- Hazards on the roads, explosive barrels, oil cans.

Overall, if you're looking for a great arcade racer, with guns just like the old days. This is certainlly for you.

Note to developers - You've done extremely well, please keep at it and come out with a sequel. Love to see what you could all come up with :)

The game is fun online and offline. However, the short single player campaign felt tedious quickly there is not much varation in the tracks. The AI also does not go out of its way just to kill you unless the race is a CTF map. This means in a typical gun enabled race you can pick off the AI cars and win the race simple because you are the only car left. I am fine with that. However, it be intresting to see the AI take a more active role in also trying to win the race in this manner.

I am still strugglinhg to cope with how awesome this game is get it quick whilst it's cheap. Customisable cars and weaponry, exciting races, blowing shit up what more could anyone possibly want. Really well presented, plays all lovely with nice handling too. Funny cars to pick from including a 3 wheel Reliant Robin type thing, a Renault 4 and many more. Cannot recommend this highly enough

I bought this on sale during the Black Friday sale and it's deserving of the $25 price. Maybe even a bit under priced. Really great hi-octane action-packed fun. And yeah, that's just the racing part of it. There's also guns, rocket launches, bombs, etc... c:
Games just aren't made like this today. Games with the sole purpose to have fun.
I could give a really long in-depth review, but there's really nothing else to say. The videos and screenshots on the store page show exactly what you get. Nothing but fun.

EDIT: Apparently this game is on the weekly Humble bundle right now. (December 13, 2014) I highly recommend you go get it for the steal price of less than $4 right now.

This game is a Fantastic Combat driving game. A mix of Vigilante 8 and Twisted Metal with the Graphics of DIRT 3 and loads of Great tracks. The best part is the super car handeling which you can't say for most driving games. Wish more people would buy this game so I could better take advantage of Multi-player. Anyone have this game hook up with me!!!!

The best Combat Racing game available on Steam. My only complaints are that there's usually not many people online and I think it could benefit with more car customisation in multiplayer - earning cash during multiplayer races to trick out your chosen car would make this more appealing in my opinion as there isn't much difference between how each car handles or performs.

Otherwise, this game is definitely in my top 10 of the past decade.

Vehicular combat racers come in many shapes. Futuristic hovercraft blowing each other up was made legendary in the Wipeout series and psychotic characters driving contemporary vehicles made blowing your friends up a blast in Twisted Metal. Gas Guzzlers Extreme is a good, old-fashioned vehicular combat racer which brings nothing new to the table but adds a new title to a solid and entertaining genre.The realistic thing about Gas Guzzlers Extreme is that you play as a redneck who has been recruited to race in a tournament created by rednecks for rednecks and, let’s face it, if anyone would be dumb enough to strap weapons on their cars and race around shooting at each other it would be rednecks.For fans of games like Flatout the amount of vehicles may be a bit small but coupled with a number of engine and weapon upgrades and the ability to customise the look of the car, there is ample opportunity to make the eighteen vehicles on stock completely your own. Cosmetic upgrades are free of charge and completing races will unlock new stickers and rims for your car. Engine, brake, and weapon upgrades, however, cost money which you earn during the race by finishing in a top spot, destroying enemy cars, performing daredevil stunts, and completing bonus objectives.Scattered throughout the tracks are weapons and boosts waiting to be picked up by the first car to hit them.The weapons available range from machine guns and shotguns to plutonium tipped rockets and some can fire both forward and backwards.As you can see, there is nothing really new about it, but the levels are very well designed and they come in seven different settings, ranging from dry deserts to snow covered mountains. None of the tracks I raced on was irritatingly complicated or idiotically simple, so the design team deserves complements for hitting a nice middle route in that regard. Races are tight and exciting and the AI functions very much like you would expect a real racer to behave.The graphics are adequate and the sound design is good but where the experience truly excels is music. The rock tracks that play during races blend perfectly into the action and boost the already heart-pounding excitement of the race.The game’s sense of humour is also a nice touch and everything from the track and bot names to the driver dancing the hula with a tire while you customise your car in the garage put a smile on your face both during and between races.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.

UPDATE: The game ended up not being compatible with the latest Nvidia drivers for my 760M. Installing older drivers did the trick. Of note, the devs were not able to figure this out, and I ended up solving the problem through 5 days off and on of trying to diagnose the problem myself.

Now that I can play, the game is very enjoyable and I'd recommend it.

---------------------------------

The game looks amazing and everything I'm looking for in a racing/combat genre.

HOWEVER: I've been trying to work through multiple channels to include the devs directly for almost a week now and the game will not even work on my high-end laptop...

The suspected problem is extremely poor coding for mobile dedicated graphics cards, I would love to give this game a better review, but it would be nice to ACTUALLY BE ABLE TO PLAY IT.

Well massive guns and fast cars are what I wanted and thats what I got. Great fun, hours of fun and simple addiction. It looks good and plays well with no real problems that I have seen. AI is a little simple but the pleasure of blowing everything up will make you forget that. I didn't pay the Steam price, if you look around you can found this for 4 or 5 pound so at that price makes it worth every penny.

There have been three truly great automotive combat games since people started trying to convert Car Wars into a video game: Autoduel, the original Twisted Metal, and now this title. This should have been one of the big games of the last year, but somehow it slipped past most of us. There is a ton of content here, and it's all AAA quality and execution. (Well, except for the names. As the title of the game may suggest to you, these people are TERRIBLE at naming things. Just terrible. It's painful. I'm not kidding.) Right now this is $3.45 on Humble. That's a steal. Highly recommended at any price point!

As usual, feel free to friend me for multiplayer.
