Along with developing his driving and fighting skills, player has to invest his hard earned money wisely to grab the chance for driving on the road to glory. Expand

    A fast and furious and full of fun arcade racing game that's in many regards and without a sweat crushing its competition - DiRT Showdown including.

    Fans of the genre will find plenty to enjoy here, but the rough start and hefty (for an indie title) price tag might keep a lot of potential players from pulling the trigger.

    Entertaining racing arcade with a raw atmosphere and enjoyable career modes. Pity the multiplayer games are rather unpopulated. [July 2012]

    Once the game picks up speed, it does broadly provide the kind of high-speed explosive thrills promised; but it sure takes its sweet time getting there.

    After a frustratingly hard first steps it can provide plenty of satisfaction – every race requires full attention as nothing is certain till you cross the finishing line. [August 2012, p.79]

    Good ideas that fail to materialize. That's the summary of this title, that ends up being simple and repetitive. It has some positive things, but it won't keep us playing for too long.

    Gas Guzzlers does some things right, but the whole deal ends up feeling decidedly under par. Graphics are only fair, music is canned and looped, and the voice samples are poor. But beyond its mediocre production values is a wobbly foundation, and that's ultimately Gas Guzzlers' insurmountable flaw.

    There aren't many racing games with guns these days, probably because cars'n'guns combination is not easy to make but in GG it works nice. It's a great game with extraordinary graphics, looks better than some
    AAA titles. Vehicle damage system is really detailed with parts falling off all the time. Tracks are ok, well balanced and set in various environments (desert, canyon, woodlands, alps etc.). Car physics and handling are ok and there is nice dynamic camera with RGB /DOF shifts when you hit something or get damaged. It's like Death Rally but more serious, especially if you choose to play with FPS/hood cam.

    Are you looking for an old-school flavored game? Kind of like Mario Karts, but more serious and "realistic" shall I say. Then this is the game for you, lots and lots of fun. Graphics are completely awesome especially for the cars and particle effects. Tracks are all right, could be better honestly. The fun level is very very high (I must note that AI is somewhat challenging). Replayability is also rather high consider how fun multiplayer is.

    In one sentence, I recommend this to anyone who is looking for an awesome driving combat game which have been lacking on the market lately.

    Graphics: 9/10
    Sound: 8/10
    Gameplay: 10/10
    Replayability: 10/10

    TOTAL: 9/10 Highly recommended

    Bought on Origin...excellent stuff....real Death Rally successor. This is the game I was waiting for ages. It is the best game and I am sure Serbian gamers will enjoy a bit of Croatian flavour. Expand

    Very enjoyable racing game. Many cars, weapons, and tracks. Definitely reminds me of death rally, except it's much more modern. Nice looking game as well. You can drive conservative or reckless, either way works. Recommend to any racing fan or someone looking for a casual/arcade racing game. Expand

    It's a fun game full of action. The graphics are great and I love the level design. Missed this kind of games on PC. Ridge Racer and Dirt Showdown being such a disappointment made space for games like this... The patch made it even better! (Or I'm just a bad driver :) It's a game of skill and it punishes every error so the first win or entering another level is sweeeet... Expand

    Usually I don't like racing games but this one caught my attention. The graphics is great but I was mostly impressed with engaging and addictive gameplay. The game does a very good job in making me enjoy shooting my opponents and tearing the metal from them. There is a decent selection of cars and weapons and there is also a set of powerups that spice up the races. On the downside, the game is hard even on easy. Sometimes it can be frustrating to repeat the race 5 times to get in a first 3. It is not that hard when you learn to play, but still. The good side of its difficulty is a sense of accomplishment when you fight for your life and eliminate the opponent at the last moment. All in all, a good game with a lot of potential. Expand

    Since the game is full of bugs or glitches, patching the game is necessary.

    However, after wasting a long time to download the 2gb size of
    latest patch and applying it to the game, the game just won't even launch.

    I am extremely disappointed, and will never trust any product which require continuous patching the game to ensure it to be at least probably playable anymore.
