Got this game in a $2 bundle, and I still feel like this was a rip-off.

Kind of feel like if I was paid to play this, I'd still be coming out behind.

This is just bad.

The kind of bad where you buy one of those cheap $5 japanese fleshlight knockoffs, get semi-drunk and decide it would be funny to actually try it out, then after you finish, you find yourself holding your DNA in what amounts to a toiletpaper tube in your hand and looking at where you are in your life that that just happened.

Don't shame yourself by buying this game.

Just say no.

There is no Manual, no option to see Controls (Key Bindings) in the game's menu. Ugly graphics, absurd physics. I like such kind of games very much. For example, I like very much the game "Gas Guzzlers Extreme", though the "GGE" has its own defects, but I really enjoy "Gas Guzzlers Extreme".
It's a pity that there are too little such games. And I wish more games of such type but of HIGH QUALITY. "Glacier 3: The Meltdown" is the worst game of such sort.

First impressions: http://www.cublikefoot.com/glacier-3-the-meltdown-first-impressions/

Glacier 3: The Meltdown is your typical "destructive" racing game. It's nothing too special, but it did a fantastic job keeping me entertained during my first play session.

Nothing much can be said about what makes Glacier 3 special from other, similar games. Like I said, it is pretty typical. The game features eight vehicles to choose from and a variety of tracks that can be driven on. There are several power-ups spread throughout each of the tracks, each granting you some kind of advantage. I stuck with missiles the entire time. They act like the red shells in Mario Kart, homing in on enemies (most of the time).

The game's physics, however, were very amusing. The vehicles each made very sharp turns, very easily, at high speeds. I also bounced off a rock at one point, like a basketball, landing back on the track. That was quite fun. The AI beat me everytime, aside from one track, where I went all-out with missiles, so the game can be a bit challenging at times, but nothing that a good missile or two can't solve.

There's not much else to say about Glacier 3. If I were to attempt to justify its price, I would pin that on how ridiculous the racing is (physics, weapons, etc.). It is fun, but has some technical issues that I wish had been addressed, such as the resolution, which is locked at some low resolution.

Oh boy , where should i start from?
First of all - there are no other settings beside Music and FX volume and FX volume is turned off by default. The menu music is mainly consisted in 2 house-ish tracks, obviously cut-off of a random set with bad quality. I don't even want to talk about the controlls and the overal in-game experience!

Would not recommend!

Here do you have a little gameplay of the first minutes of the game :)

All in all it is ok for a funny trash game and if it is -75% than you can spend your money in this game :P
