1- GENERAL

Gas Guzzlers Extreme is a racing and combat game.

The game presents itself with a lot of content for a racing game. You have the usual stuff, like career mode, quick race, multiplayer (which is almost empty), but inside of those you can ad a lot more.

In career mode you start with one car and you will unlock the others during your progress. Upgrades can be bought with the money earned in the races. You can customize paint jobs, rims and even the license plate. Guns can be added to the car, shield, new exhaust or engine... the world is not enough.

I should say that the game does not have real licensed cars, but imagine chinese copies of famous cars. You are wright. All the cars are blatant copies of real cars, and you will spend some time guessing which is which.

The graphics are OK. We know this is not a AAA game, but the textures are quite nice and detailed. The cars are very well designed. Keep in mind that this is not Gran Turismo, but the creators have a nice and polished game.

2- GAMEPLAY

Surprisingly this game has quite a nice handling. The physics of the car are not perfect, but very acceptable for a combat game. The AI is very nice, and hard to beat even at medium levels. There are some nice toutches like the funny AI names, and the option to choose from different types of commentaries. I've choose to have Duke Nukem commenting my races. It's quite fun.

There are some different game modes:

* Power race: a straightforward race, with no weapons or combat envolved;

* Battle race: a normal race but with weapons and the possibility to knock out opponents;

* Knockout: 8 guys in an arena, the last one alive wins;

* Sponsored events: sometimes your sponsor puts you in private capture the flag races.

There are some pickups during the races. They give you some perks or simply ammunition, and they can change the flow of the game.

Shortcuts are available, but they are not easy to drive through.

3- CONCLUSION

I'm having a lot of fun with this game. I have to admit, the price is a bit steap, since it's marked 22,99€ in steam atm, but in a sale under 5€ is a must have for racing games fans.

Minimum requirements are very understated. Big FPS issues on slightly older PC. Changes in the games graphics settings resulted in a game that looked like it was from 2005 but still had fps issues.

Maybe its fun, I never found out.

"Not recommended" with caveats.

It's fun. The driving mechanics feel good. There's a lot of grind to get to the better, faster cars. You'll need to win a lot of races to unlock them slowly, one at a time. The punny humor (racer names like "Jack Kass", "Alotta Fagina") wasn't my thing, but it doesn't ruin the game. The announcer, in particular, sticks to the essential information. Things you actually want to hear. God knows how many racing games have been made less pleasurable experieces thanks to blathering announcers.

But bear in mind that Burnout Paradise is $20, and the first GRID is $15 these days. Compared to the $25 price tag here I'd say you're getting a lot more content with either of those games. But, there are guns here, unlike either of those two, and that adds a Mario Kart-like dynamic which can dramatically affect how racers will place or if they'll finish the race at all. If you love racing games and want to pick up another for something new, Gas Guzzlers isn't a bad choice. Look for a sale price or find it in a bundle.

Fantastic multiplayer game. If you want a racing game with simple handling and over the top guns then this is a fantastic choice. Admittedly single player might get boring after a few hours (although racing against hard AI is a surprisingly deep experience). However the multiplayer creates fantastic moments and memories.

DLC is great value if you enjoy this game. Zombies is especially hilarious fun with mates.
If you have friends who are keen to play this with you it is a brilliant buy.

In short, worth considering as a single player racer.
Definitely worth the buy if you have friends to play with.

EDIT:
Didn't expect this review to get noticed. Thought I should mention multiplayer with strangers is very rare, however there are official servers so its easy to organise a game with friends.

Wow. This is the definition of a sleeper hit.

This is a 50/50 split between Flatout and Mario Kart.

Some of the humor is, erm... A little "edgy" (you'll see what I mean), but, it all certainly fits the theme, and it's nice to see such a well-developed game in a genre that's seen days better better than these.

I hope you enjoy it!

Wow, this game surpised the hell out of me. It may look like a lame budget game from first glance, but there is actually a hidden gem in this game.

The racing is arcady, so you dont need to be a pro to enjoy this game.

and THE MOST satisfying part aobut this game is when you gun down your opponents, Oh boy does it feel soo good to take them out, and when they are out they are KNOCKED out of the race.

I recommend this game to anyone, Im not even a racing game fan, Ive only played Forza a long time ago on my x360, but thats about it. the only other racing game i loved was Burnout Takedown.

This game is just as addicting as old school burnout, except this time you have guns..... nuff said

Road Rash with cards instead of bikes. Hilarious in multiplayer. Campaign falls a bit short, but the many customization options make it worthwhile.
