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

    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.

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

It has potential for being really entertaining racing game; imagine Carmageddon combined with Fallout world, sounds good right? But the potential ends fast with complete lack of content. Just 3 tracks, and one way of racing which could be improved, too. It took me something like 25 minutes to beat the game (with 1st try) one medium level. Replay value? Pretty much zero.

    It's truly a shame, because the environment looks very nice, fallout'like - and racing in the post apocalyptic setting is quite fun in itself. But the game itself is a complete torso. I paid ~5 euros for it through Steam (50% discount price) and it feels like even that was waste of money. DLC pack adds few cars, nothing else.

    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 drivingDecent 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. Full Review »

    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 spamWas 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.
