  • Summary: In Post Apocalyptic Mayhem, over-the-top vehicular combat is the norm as player's race and battle through numerous breathtaking tracks.

    PAM - Post Apocalyptic Mayhem is cool, but way too short.

    Though not being full-featured, or even sort of featured, PAM is only $9.99, so it's hard to come down on it with a vengeance. In fact, it's quite a bit of fun.

    Entertaining, but flawed; just like its mythological counterparts! [June 2011, p.71]

    This short ride's definitely a lemon. [June 2011, p.72]

    Trying to mix things up is a commendable effort, but P.A.M. just comes off as a lazy attempt to revive a previously saturated genre. If there were more tracks and game modes, there could've been a much better game to speak of here. As it stands, Post Apocalyptic Mayhem is a ridiculously overpriced download that you should not waste your money with.

    The empty and amateurish Post Apocalyptic Mayhem belongs in the junkyard, not on your PC.

    Looking for an action racing game? Then you should get PAM. 6 racers + 3 weapons each car = war on the track. The game has very nice graphics and sounds, ships with 4 arenas and a variete of cars and provides so much fun that has one of the best entertainment/price ratio. All post apocalyptic arenas are well designed and the cars are well balanced. This is not a racing game. It's war!
    If you are looking for an addictive racing game, PAM is a must buy.

    This is a really nice racing game, good balanced vehicles. it reminds me a little of the Twisted Metal series, only with less frontal weapons.The gameplay involves killing other opponents with different weapons for each vehicle. The multiplayer works like a carm, and although one game is only 5 minutes, its a nice addictive game. I've bought myself a 3-pack on steam, and give 2 copy's to some friends. its even nicer if you can convince some other friends to battle you. The game has been improved so much lately ! its having a free DLC with 3 new vehicles, and a new DLC ( chaos pack) with another 3 new vehicles, and a new free track( airplane cemetery) is out for only â Expand

    Unexpectedly good. Post Apocalyptic Mayhem is a cool racing game with a fair set of challenges and well-designed achievements. Cars are funny and tracks are interesting. Too bad the multiplayer seems to be dead. Expand

    Good fun with friends, and free DLC has been added.
    Although it could do with some more expansion, it doesn't deserve the low critics rating.

    I bought it while it was on sale on Steam (after a free weekend, if I remember correctly), and it was worth what I paid for it.

    Decent Mario Cart rip off. It's fun when it works, but the lobby system is glitchy and the driving physics are poorly implemented--the driving doesn't feel arcadish enough for this type of game. Cars lose control way too easily. Lots of invisible walls to run into. Uneven balance of available vehicles. Expand

    Was this game even beta tested? I bet it wasn't after playing this game. Your weapons in this game are VERY overpowered. Not only do they spam the entire track, they are mostly instant kill. Handling is terrible no matter which car you have (god forbid I pick the ones the game tells me have bad handling) and the biggest problem is that your car is prone to RANDOMLY fly off the track and spin out of control. No reason except that this game is glitchy and that level design is littered with bugs. When this game isn't being too easy, its being frustratingly flawed to the point that you can't finish the map knowing that at any moment you will run into the invisible pebble that has the amazing power of flinging your car off the track.
