"There isn't a whole lot to this game, but what is there is moderately entertaining. Would be more fun if the online was filled with players."

Steam Big Picture

About This Game

Post Apocalyptic Mayhem lets you race and battle heavily-modified vehicles through numerous breathtaking tracks and lay waste to other racers in over-the-top vehicular mayhem. You can use special vehicle abilities to cause spectacular destruction to enemy cars as you fight and speed to victory. You’ll experience remarkable speeds, hilarious and violent weapons, reinforced vehicles and various exhilarating tracks.
The game offers various intense race modes to allow you to showcase both your driving and battling skills. PAM features an accessible physics-based driving model that allows you to sense the immense speed of all the post apocalyptic vehicles as well as feel every bone-jarring impact from both weapons and the tracks. Play single-player or battle up to five friends in online multiplayer mode.

Key Features:

  • Vehicles – PAM offers numerous post apocalyptic vehicles. All the Vehicles are heavily-modified and extremely menacing. All Vehicles are heavy-duty, reinforced and are able to take and give a lot abuse. The vehicles all look like they can quickly and easily travel over the newly scorched wasteland while effortlessly smashing other vehicle along the way.
  • Weapons – All of the vehicles have three unique and powerful abilities that they can use to severely damage opposition vehicles: one front attack, a side attack and a rear attack. A Player can receive these special abilities by picking up Special Ability Barrels that are placed throughout all of the tracks. When a vehicle runs over a Special Ability Barrel, the vehicle will gain that specific ability and the Player will be able to use it whenever they prefer.
  • Multiplayer – Intense Online Multiplayer racing for up to 6 players.
  • Environments – The PAM tracks will be able to give players numerous options while racing as well as create intense areas for the all important collisions. All Tracks will contain:
    • Awe-inspiring apocalyptic environments.
    • Various paths around certain areas of the tracks.
    • Funnel areas were players are forced to drive in close quarters with other vehicles.
    • Huge Jumps.
    • Numerous compelling and completely unique tracks.

Post Apocalypic Mayhem (PAM for short) was a little surprise for me. I am normally not a fan of any kind of racing/ driving genre of game, and although PAM offers something a little different when compared to GT or NFS games, I still really enjoyed the driving aspect.

Granted you won't really be playing PAM for the driving though, it's about blowing up your oponents with the various amounts of weapons and power-ups you pick up on the track as you race.

The graphics are really nice, and the multiplayer is even better!

Another one that I can 100% recommend!

Got this a long time ago, still very enjoyable, even though it's incredibly tough to stumble upon anyone in multiplayer so I find myself playing singleplayer. Still very awesome though.

Let's be honest, this is a "wannabe" title that is trying to emulate the spirit of far better games like Twisted Metal and Vigilante 8. Unfortunately, it fails because it doesn't have anywhere near as much content, and is mind-bogglingly unimaginative in almost every respect, especially in the design of its vehicles and the levels themselves (which is doubly frustrating because there are so few of them). Evidently quality over quantity doesn't apply here.

And maybe I wouldn't be so put off by this title if not for the price; the notion of paying $10 for this is more absurd than exploding flamingos. I picked this up for $3 in a sale, and I still feel ripped off. I'm stunned by how many positive reviews there are.

When you see the 44 metascore you might think this game is broken, but if you actually read the reviews you'll find out that the reviewers always complain about the same 3 issues:
1st, they were too dumb to notice that this game is NOT a simulator, it's a mayhem arcade (a kind of 3D Rock 'n' Roll Racing). So, complains about the "unrealistic physics" are just stupidity. It's like complaining that Mario Kart is not realistic!
2nd, the game is too short. Now, it is true that there are too few tracks and too few cars, but the game actually runs very well with no bugs at all and it is actually fun for some fast destruction racing with friends.
And 3rd, the graphics are not top quality. But in my opinion, they are good enough. (Actually, I just can't understand why people give so much importance to graphics on games. Fabulous graphics may impress you at first, but after some minutes you get used to it and your entertainment will actually rely much more on other aspects, not on the graphics, unless it's so bad that it hampers gameplay, which is rare and definitely not the case here)
Though there are better titles out there, it's 44 metascore is simply absurd. This is not the first time I see a totally misleading metascore. I can't trust it anymore after this one.
