    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]

    Repetitive levels, same-looking explosions and faked car damage kill all the fun.

    Gas Guzzlers: Combat Carnage offers nice controls and decent graphics. Oddly global game design is poor and you may need to be bored before reaching the full potential of the game.

    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]

    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.

    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.

    Atavistic PC racing for when you want to party like it's 1995. [Sept 2012, p.61]

    Gas Guzzlers: Combat Carnage is a goofy, entertaining battle racer with a good sense of humor and plenty of variety, provided you get past the brutally difficult intro. Gamepires is already releasing patches for the game so hopefully they open up more than just the solitary grinding race at the beginning of the game. For now, though, you'll need to suffer first before this games gives up all it has to offer.

    Somewhere, hidden within Gas Guzzlers: Combat Carnage, is a fun racer. Unfortunately, the fun is locked.

    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.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 gameAre 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
