    For the price tag I highly recommend checking out this sleeper hit. I was shocked at just how much fun it brought me out of nowhere.

    New, yet old-fashioned, still fun and fresh. Gas Guzzlers Extreme fuels the Super gas, and as a second try to grab the motorist's heart it offers entertainment that is golden. Please, scarp the all mainstream racing games. This one has the potential to win the arcade of the year title.

    This game is a welcome addition to the combat racing genre and although it adds nothing new to it, it holds up well against games like Twisted Metal. This genre is severely under-served on the PC and I encourage anyone who enjoyed the likes of Interstate ‘76 to pick this game up. It doesn’t have the story of that classic piece of gaming history, but the action and mayhem are definitely there.

    Gas Guzzlers Extreme is a solid and well-made arcade racing game. It might not be very original, but it is fun and very easy to pick up.

    It is simple. It is fun. Simple racing fun.

    Gas Guzzlers Extreme is still worth the plunge if you’re at all intrigued by a return to its simple diet of racing carnage however.

    Gas Guzzlers Extreme is an action-packed, fast paced racing game with insane combat features. The game features a variety of cars, from humble superminis, to full on giant yank tanks! The player starts with a low performance vehicle and gradually works their way up by earning money through a series of uniquely challenging races.

    If you absolutely must have a new combat car racing game, go for it. Otherwise, maybe hold off until the mood strikes you… or it’s on sale.

    In the end, if you’re looking to pass the time by banging metal with metal and blowing stuff up, you can do far worse than what Gas Guzzlers Extreme is offering.

    One of the best racing games out on PC, I like it more than most arcade racers, even with out all the guns.

    One of the best racing games out on PC, I like it more than most arcade racers, even with out all the guns.

    If you played Rages multi-player, this game makes that game's multi-player looks shallow and unfinished mini-game.

    Where this game comes into action is that it is like V8, Twisted metal, or even like the death race films. This game also has an awesome challenging campaign mode as well. With hilarious bot names, and awesome sponsors, Only in campaign the game has a progression system, and the cars get better only in story. While In multiplayer, the game is balanced, where only the cars handling and weight are effected. You will find the car you like the most.

    Even as a "cart racer" comparison this game blows the competition out of the water with its races.

    This game has dedicated servers, and many steam intergrated things. which is a bonus to all PC gamers alike. It also has many things you can adjust in the options menu like all PC games should, from lower quality to awesome quality the game is pretty well optimized and has many of the features a racing/car combat game should have.

    The games graphics are pretty great too, As a bonus. The car customization is pretty awesome as well.

    It is one epic fun filled game. I am resplendently surprised that it exists, basically came out of no where. I would recommend this game to everyone.

    If you like a great arcade racer, and a great car combat game, this is your game to play. And only for 25 bucks off sale it is a steal (This game is on sale for 25% at the moment on steam, well worth the money)

    :D see you in the game!!!

    Plus they've added several multiplayer modes (also team based) which are fantastic. Really enjoying the CTF mode
