    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?
  2. 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.
  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.
  4. 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.
  5. Mission frustration will have most gamers utilizing cheats to move on to the next level.
  6. The Carmageddon series has clearly run out of steam. Providing the same old cheap gore and guts does not have the same impact in 2000 as it did in 1997.

    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.

    Some people will be happy enough with mowing down people and fans of the series may like what they get but whether it will convince the non-believers is questionable.

    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.

    Switching people to zombies ruined all the fun and the game overall is so much worse than Carmageddon 2.
