I am ashamed to admit it but the truth is that I have never played the original Carmageddon, what I do remember however is the hours I spent murdering people with my red shiny car listening to Iron Maiden’s Aces High and the Trooper.
What is Carmadeddon II
Carmageddon II is a racing game (kind-of), a racing game that you get points from running over people and destroying your competitors with the most violent and creative ways. In this spirit, there where three win conditions for any level in the game, win the race, destroy all opponents or kill all pedestrians.
Why it’s Great
It is great because this game was criticised like few when it first came out for the violence it contained that according to parents at the time would turn us all into killing machines by the age of 18… I haven’t still killed a person and I had a blast with the game. although from what I know in some countries the changed the pedestrians to animals or aliens for that same reason.
Where you Can Get It
Good question, I know Amazon has some but if you know more places that sell it please let me know.
I grew up during the Atari and the later Sega Mega Drive era, that was until I played my first game on a PC named Battle Chess and never looked back. I have a completely irrelevant to gaming full-time job and on my free time I like to relax by saying something about the games that I love.
