  1. With great graphics, excellent sound effects and some of the most fun and hilarious characters I’ve seen in any recent PC game, Bandits: Phoenix Rising is one of the best car combat games you can get for your PC.

    If you've ever wanted to venture "Beyond Thunderdome," look no further, for this is action driving done right.
  3. A truly fresh and fun experience. While the plot is nothing to write home about, the furious combat action - which is far more mobile than in most action shooters - is utterly addictive.
  4. Multiple tasking with multiple weapons makes for a wild ride, and I like that, boy does it get hot and heavy at times.
  5. We are well aware that this game has a very simple story, but thanks to the crazy action, a competent AI and great graphics and music, it managed to create an interesting and involving atmosphere which will make you eagerly anticipate what comes next.
  6. The game is fun and plays incredible precise. With the great sense of speed, and total chaotic action that surrounds you, your heart will be racing after the missions have completed.

    The game is almost perfect. Single-player missions load very quickly and the graphics look really good for such an old game. I still play thisThe game is almost perfect. Single-player missions load very quickly and the graphics look really good for such an old game. I still play this game in 2016, 14 years after they released the game and i still like it.

    The only thing that i didn't like that there is no sequel or anything that adds to this game, which is sad..
    Great game!
