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!!!!

I recommend this game however carefully. This game is also not split screen which is it's biggest down fall.

I've read somewhere that this game could be comparable to an xbox 360 version of Mario Kart. Can such a comparison be made? Sort of. The game does deliver a fun arcade impact but instead of over stepping its boundaries and becoming limitless, Gaz Guzzlers Extreme simply plays it safe.

As mentioned earlier, the fact that there is multiplayer is nice however there is NOT split screen (... seriously... get on the split screen thing for PC already people). The gameplay controls are what would one expect from a crash into everything type of game. The impact system is rewarding and when knocking out a player with a good nitro boost kamikaze, apparently you get more points. There are weapons that can be attached to the vehicles but this is where the game starts limiting itself. Playing career mode I've gone through four different types of weapons (one being a shotgun may I add and a second being a shot gun able to shoot forward and backwards). This is where it sort of sucks because I feel a lot more (maybe such as adding mortars etc...) could have been added. Career mode is fun and unlocking new cars slowly becomes rewarding. My favorite part to this game though is being able to choose different sort of races while moving on with your career. There are races where you can put weapons aside and make it a bump only race. This is a high light to this particular racing game, and sadly one of the only things to allow the player to step outside of the box. Career mode also offers players sort of side bonus races where the sponsor will have you play capture the flag. The variation in races is nice, and the tournament feature is a neat bonus.

If you want to run the game at 64x... do it because changing graphics within the game sometimes leads to a crash. None the less my computer goes nuts when running this game but the graphics do look good. The car selection is decent and the weapon selection and effects could have been better.

Sounds are as good as any vroom vroom sound.

This game is cool and has it's moments, but I don't see much replayability in the future either than a game of multiplayer once in a blue moon. If it added split scren this game could have got a +1 easily, followed by another +1 for having a multitude of weapons. But falling short with an appropriate rating of :

7.0/10

This game is pretty awesome. It delivers on so many different levels with AAA execution but for some reason is overlooked by many. The amount of content you get at the low price point is unbelievable and the dlc is well worth it's low price too. The amount of cars and upgrades you can do combined with the several different game modes and tracks will keep you busy for some time. If you have been looking to relive the old twisted metal days then this is for you. If you're looking to destroy some cars and do some racing then this is for you. The only thing on the lower end is the amount of people that play online which really doesn't take anything away from the amazing single player. However I'm always looking for new people to shred some metal and fiberglass with so feel free to add me if you want in some fun.

You know, yes I am from Croatia - and this is made in Croatia game and I like it, not only because I support developers from my small (but most attractive looking) country, but also because game is simply awesome - I was always liking Flatout based games but this is something new and much better in my opinion to any Flatout based games. Gas Guzzlers Extreme game has its unique humor - which is really awesome.
And game is cheap in price and you'll get tons of fun if you buy it - but you won't regret it I am sure.

P.S - since I don't wanna to write much about negatives, because you can't find them easily at all on this game, but there's one little annoying thing is that finding multiplayer games is for now still pretty hard thing to do - it's pretty hard to find populated multiplayer servers for now, but I am sure this is gonna change in the future.

Greetings from Slavonia, Croatia!
