  • Summary: Ever been stuck in a traffic jam, dying to get out? Everyone wants to slam into the car in front of them and jet away. Now imagine you can destroy the cars that chase you, and run down pedestrians in the process. Throw in a deathmobile and some wicked powerups and you're on your way to Carmageddonville, baby!

  1. The game's AI is highly commendable. The thing that I liked most is that on the streets of the Zombievilles, the traffic is conducted normally, in accordance with basic regulations.
  2. Mission frustration will have most gamers utilizing cheats to move on to the next level.
  3. The graphics changes help bring the Carmageddon series into line with what is now the standard of the 3D graphics bag of tricks. But underneath it all, it's still Carmageddon, and for me at least, I've had enough.

    While the vehicular slaughtering remains satisfyingly gruesome in looks and sound, the graphics of the rest of the game have taken a step back -- Carmageddon 3 suffers from lousy frame rates and animation slowdowns.
  5. 58
    You know you've got problems when the top quote on the box tells you that Maxim gave the game five out of five stars. I mean, that should tell you something immediately, right?
  6. Thanks to the inexplicable inclusion of timed exploration tasks in between the racing levels, Carmageddon 3 is exactly one half fun and one half frustration.
  7. What might be a somewhat amusing game is hampered by slack-jawed level design, ...boring four-dimensional humans and frame rates that a less charitable reviewer might describe as craptastic.

    Not the best of the series, but still not the worst game of all time. If can get fun and addictive after a while, but you have to ignore some flaws it has. Expand
