    One of the freshest, funniest car combat romps to date.

    An addictive and charming game. It could have used a lot more modes and maps, but I enjoyed its simplicity, fast-paced action and great controls. [Dec 2001, p.250]
  3. Beating everything in this game will be extremely tough. And this isn't a good kind of tough either. It's a throw-your-controller-the-computer-is-too-good kind of tough. Pity.
  4. This game is an excellent title for someone suffering from attention deficit disorder, but if you're looking for a game with lots of replay value, shop elsewhere.

    Even if just for eye-candy purposes, Cel Damage is plenty amusing. [Feb 2002, p.60]

    Only in Cel Damage does a guy with an axe beat out a gatling gun. [Dec 2001, p.101]

    The biggest problem is that the weapons are far too powerful, resulting in a near-constant cycle of death and respawning. [Jan 2002, p.26]

    Cel Damage was a great multi-player game. The more people you had the better it was. Single player was lacking to be sure and could have beenCel Damage was a great multi-player game. The more people you had the better it was. Single player was lacking to be sure and could have been improved. The characters and voices were edgy for the time and crude but comical. I would love to have seen this game receive some proper love. If you buy it on any platform other than the OG X-Box I advise that you research it first as the mechanics were changed. In the original you had weapons that were a 1 hit KO and that went perfectly with the quick play-style this game was known for. Friendships were made and broken cheap shots were hilarious and skill was a plus but not required to just have fun and mindlessly slaughter your opponents while listening to the one-liners. Expand
