Oh man....this is as adrenaline pumping a racing game as I have played. In addition to the kick ♥♥♥ soundtrack, the cars are beefy in an arcadey way, the tracks are fun and often challenging, and the guns....oh man the guns!

So, there are a few different race modes (all the racing standards really), but in addition to all the standards, there is also deathmatch. DEATHMATCH! That is balls out crazy bad assedness! There is also capture the flag (which is pretty much deathmatch with an obvious objective added).

The campaign mode (so far as I have gotten) involves moving up through the rankings while buying new cars, upgrades, weapons and of course tricking out your cars as well. Each race features three modes to choose from (typically standard race, battle (with guns), and elimination). It's as simple as that.

You can select a cheeseball voice for your racer and s/he comments throughout. I chose Arnold, and get some laughs out of it.

So, in addition to the guns (THE GUNS!!!!), there are also pickups such as smoke, oil, mines, etc....flapjacks happen to be one of them lol...that you can then drop to mess up the other drivers. There is also nitro for that extra boost. You obviously have a myriad of ways to destroy your fellow racers, not the least of which include good old fashioned ramming. You can also pick up buffs like shields and double damage along the way. All are obviously single use or timed (depending on the type of pick up).

Multiplayer features all the modes in a seven race round robin of sorts. They are team oriented, and if you play with somebody you know, you can definitely incorporate tactics into the matches to increase your odds of winning. There weren't a ton of players online when I played last night, but it was still a ton of fun and the game populates the matches with bots to fill them out if you don't have all 8 players to fill a server. The bots are actually pretty solid players as well lol.

I would say this may go down as my fave racer. It is intuitive and easy to grasp, but still rewards practice. It has fun tracks, cool guns and upgrades, and no small amount of humor involved (outside of the voices, you might have a blow up doll or president bust passenger in your car, you might find penguins on the track, etc....).

Definitely must own, must play.

Do Eet. Do Eet Nowwww!!!!

Up until now I have been unable to find a game to replace the excitement that I got playing Twisted Metal 2 back in the day with a group of friends. This game is quite different but manages to capture that magic. The graphics are not triple A but they are good, the cars don't handle like GTA V but more like Saints Row, and the GUI for the menus in multiplayer make sense to the devs but are awkward to a new player. In regard to the menus you are expected to know that you need to set up your car, choose your weapons, and get on the right team before hitting accept. I decided to give multiplayer a try for the first time after a few drinks at the pub and well, yeah people had to help me but they were there to do so. This game is very easy to jump right into both for single or multiplayer. I read a review where it was described as Twisted Metal meets Mario Kart and think that is very descriptive. The developers are active, content still comes out, and it was coded so that anyone can run a dedicated server. What that means is that multiplayer for this game will always be available, and that's awesome. This game has tracks where you just race, tracks where you race and shoot each other, all out rumbles, etc. In single player you unlock and modify the cars which is a setup much like GRID or Saints Row IV if you are familiar with them. The vehicles all resemble real cars but have different names. You can get the Lambo, General Lee, NSX, GTR, and most of the models you come to expect from a racing game. I stumbled upon the General Lee earlier when I changed a model that looked like a Charger to orange instinctively then stumbled into decals and a vinyl appeared for it. Of course I've been mowing down zombies in the car ever since and then felt obligated to come here and write something about the game as it's on sale at the moment. Maybe you don't have it yet, maybe you're thinking yeah it's been out for a little bit now, and I say to you yes you are right but it doesn't matter. Midnight Club is still an awesome game where the AI will smash your face into the ground and take a proper movement on your carcass, and that's what you will find here plus multiplayer. This game leaves me with the impression that the devs built and continue to expand on a game that they actually desire to play. They have done some very odd marketing of this game. I had never even heard of it before it showed up in a Humble Bundle, and even then I thought what the hell? Surely this is going to be some low budget cheeseball game with a million bugs, but that's not what I discovered. It's like they marketed the game backwards starting with bundles. You will run into people just starting out online and then you will run into people that really know how to handle these cars and the weapons. The people that know what they are doing are awesome you should check out some of the youtube videos by teams that play this game. I love it and if you like cars and guns this is a no brainer. I recommend the game and both of the DLC released so far.

All I can say is that it's been a lot of fun with my time with it so far, it's great frantic multiplayer racing destruction fun. With a good variety of vehicles, weapons, tracks, and a number of modes both focused around pure racing, pure combat, and some level of variation between the two. The cars control nicely, drifting is slick, boosting feels appropriately fast. Definitely worth picking up, in my opinion, if you have some friends to go play with for good fun. Can support up to 8 players online. Be weary though, the AI love to tail you and shoot shotguns up your ♥♥♥.
