Just played the trial, quite nice if you ask me, think I'm gonna buy this one (as I'm a HUGE carmageddon fan).

Your the first person so far to say something positive about this game...

I got it this morning before going to work and got about 10 mins with it. It's ok. The arena style fighting reminds me of twisted metal (original) somewhat. It looks kinda plain, far beneath what the 360 can do. With so few new games being released for the 360 right now I guess beggers can't be too choosy?

It has 200 points. There that makes me the second person to say something nice about it ;)

Please tell me you just mean on arcade because I have so many great games that I can't get to right now it's not funny. Hopefully enough to get me through the drought that'll be coming soon.

I like this game, but I always liked Carmageddon (sp?) and Twisted Metal, which is what this game reminds me of. I'll be unlocking it once Christmas rolls around, almost all I asked for were gift certificates and MS points. :p

This is a pretty fun game, but it can get frustrating at times. More than once I've been wasted because my car didn't right itself right away when I pressed Y.

I found it a bit aimless... the game mode where you chase for checkpoints was weird cos although i reached them and went through the most i lost... if it was a racing game like Wipeout or an out-and-out combat racer i'd enjoy it, but it seems like a messy car crash (ironic!) of the two..


Also good to see you on here, FIaw (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/member.php?u=2413)! :D


EDIT: I want a new Rollcage (http://www.rollcagestage2.com/) for the 360!

Hm, after playing it some more (the trial) you guys seem to be right, it gets VERY repetitive after a while... Think I'm gonna pass on this one after all (which is something I do not often do on "new" xbla games (not ports)).

I found this game a bit cumbersome to play and a bit repetitive as well.:(

I was unimpressed by this game.
