The Car Is The Star! Carmageddon: Max Damage features a wide and varied range of cool, crazy, custom killing machines; each with its own highly distinctive “character”. Carmageddon cars are specifically built for the job in hand – wrecking opponents and killing peds! Nearly 20 years ago the original Carmageddon invented the whole concept of videogame physics and real-time damaging of cars and scenery, and so it’s obviously been our responsibility to bring this technology BANG up-to-date with a brand new state of the art car damage (and repair) system. Crush, bend, twist, and completely mangle your opponents’ and your own car – smash parts off, or split it in two; the original game was all about wrecking motors and pummelling pedestrians, and today we take this to a whole new level! Power, Armour, and Offensive upgrades are available for your car, along with other customising options, allowing you to personalise the killing capabilities of your rides.
A host of old favourites from the original Carmageddon make a comeback, along with some all-new faces. Only ever seen before as low resolution mugshots, now you get to see them from head to toe (well, head to knees in the case of Screwie) in full HD 3D glory – usually as they smash through their windscreen and hurtle past (or INTO) yours!
The new environments are amalgamations of the best bits from the numerous chunks of landscape that we all loved to tear around in Carmageddon. “Bleak City”, "Devil's Canyon", “Dusty Trails”, “MagNuChem” and "Snowy" levels all return in updated forms, with their memorable landmark features such as the Loop ’de’ Loop, acid pits and Football Stadium. Everything is reassuringly surreal; hell, we’ve even managed to incorporate a giant food mixer into a level!
The topography and detail in the locations is updated and enhanced, with even more fun stuff to smash into, smash up, snap off, and send careening into the poor pedestrian population. “Nice Shot Sir!” And talking of pedestrians…
Once again, the game features a varied mix of adult pedestrians of all ages, shapes, persuasions and species. Classic pedestrians are back, such as old lady on a Zimmer frame and old man with his stick, with their famous cry “I was in the war!”, plus bikini babes and swimming trunk hunks, fat bastards, and herds of cows in improbable locations. Joining them are some new faces – including cyclists, wheelchair users and peds on mobility scooters. Carmageddon is an equal opportunities ped slaughterfest!
PowerUps are back and this time they’re even funnier, surrealier, hurtier, and messier than ever! Lots of the classic PUps return in super-enhanced form, such as Repulsificators, Kangaroos & Solid Granites. Then we have all new PUps like "Pelvic Thrust" and a variety under the heading “Tossers”! Combine PUps to create hilarious combo results like Groovin’ Helium Filled Peds, or Peds without legs at a Temporary Rapture!
Leaderboards. Challenge yourself to reach the top of the leaderboard using skill or brute force!
Achievements. A suitably warped array of mad Feats and Exploits will garner you the rewards that every gamer dreams of.
Challenges: Do the most stupid things, collect meaningless trinkets and waste hours of your life in the pursuit of ultimately pointless goals!
Smelly Bushes: We’ve hidden a variety of these specially fragrant Easter Eggs throughout the game to keep you busy and entertained!
CarMODgeddon: The whole game is MODdable for your MODding pleasure!

Carmageddon: Max Damage reviews and comments

Translated by

Product received for free Thank you dear Developers for the Livestream a few Hours ago:) And thanks for my Key:) But now a lot about the Game itself: The Game belongs to the Genre of Racing Games, however, is only part of one. The Winner is not only who you cross the Finish line as 1st, but also (my little List) ... 1.) Who to cross the Finish as 1st:) Tricked yourself. 2.) The Opponents Carts destroyed. 3.) The Passers-by Run over. 4.) Makes As many Points as possible. This is just a little Engraver for the whole Modies. Story: Max Damage and Die Anna gave Birth to a Prodigy Named Max Damage after the Malformation TDR. The name of his father, like his Father:) But there is no Story just running around and running over is on the Plan. Graphic: Bad ... While this is only a small Performance Upgrade for Re-incernation, I think the Graphics are very bad. Unreal tournament Looked better a few Years ago. If, among other things, UE-3 runs, which for me means that I don't have an FPS ad. But Vehicle Models look good and the Game lows VIEEEEL better than Re-incernation. Control: Glows supa on Keyboard even if I would have liked to reach for the Gamepad (if it were still here). Gameplay: Rennspiel Typical Race and take all Passers-by with them. A Blessing for all those who do NOT CAR in Games! Otherwise, I can only EMPFEHLEN the Game.

Product received for free Since I received the Game free of charge, I would also like to write a Review. Maybe that even benefits one or the other Gamer;-) Especially Connoisseurs of the Series are addressed: Pro: + Feeling like a Remake of Carmageddon 1 (It is the same vehicles, very similar Tracks and Also many other things in Common) + Many different racing types (e.g. Classic, collecting Checkpoints, killing Peds according to Points) + You can also replace the Types by, for example, earning points by scrapping Other NPCs with Points. This is a very big Advantage over classic Races such as in Carma 2. + part very large and detailed Open-world maps + slow Free Spins of different Vehicles and Bonuses (after 12 hours of playing I am in my Career at Lv. 9) + Much more Upgrades as used to Be Kontra:-Very long charging and Game Start times (I still have a Garfieldcomic up the table while Playing)-You can hardly feel the Vehicle Upgrades. Even with APO 4/3/4 (Red Eagle), I am often won and do little Damage to Opponents. In any Case, this should be done here! -Miserable Controller settings (I play with Speedlink controllers and the Counterclockwise buttons have slipped around a Button), even after 12 Hours of Play I sometimes press the wrong button. Programs like x360CE haven't helped. -Some Vehicles drive like a wet Sack of Potatoes on Petroleum ... Real disgusting. -The prat cam and the Shouting of Max Damage would have been perfect. I am a big Fan of Carmageddon 1 (which I played 15 Years ago on Pentium 1 in The DOS) and Carma 2. I didn't like Carma TDR and I didn't buy Reincarnation. And this Game here has tied me to the TV every Night since Release, because it feels mostly like the original Carma in "Biger/Schöner/Schneller" I have to criticize once again In plain sight: Even if you have 12/12 APO upgrades You hardly feel any significant Improvement and you are constantly being weighed. Something should be changed here as a matter of urgency.
