Carmageddon II is definitely not for kids. It's a grotesque game with absolutely no ethics. And boy is it fun. This is one of those guilty pleasures you should play with the lights out while everyone's asleep. Just try not to hoot and holler with glee too much; you'll wake up the neighbors.

Det er let at tage moralsk afstand fra spillet. Men den hæmningsløse vold er kombineret med en lige så hæmningsløs humor, og heri ligger for mig hele forskellen mellem kvalme og kvalitet. Rød asfalt, sort humor - og gyldent gameplay!

Carma II does for Carmageddon what Doom did for Wolfenstein 3D: takes the concept and fine-tunes it, producing a game that is a ghoulish dream come true for fans of the original... and a kick in the cock for the critics.

Moi drodzy teraz nie pozostaje mi już nic innego, jak zaprosić was za kółko i puścić na miasto. Co za ulga gdy możecie przejeżdżając pieszego, wyobrazić sobie swojego najgorszego wroga, i uśmiechnąć się delikatnie gdy on będzie znikał pod kołami. Rany byłbym zapomniał że niesamowitego klimatu tej grze dodaje muzyka. Są to wspaniałe starsze kawałki zespołu IRON MAIDEN. Z mojej strony nie pozostaje nic innego jak gorąco was zachęcić do zakupu tych bardzo odbiegających od normy wyścigów.

In an ideal world, racing games would either be a perfect simulation of the real life experience of driving a racing vehicle, or the opposite of this. Carmageddon is a favorite to most racing fanatics for the reason that it is the closest thing to the opposite of a racing "sim" ever made. If you feel like a challenge, go play Grand Prix Legends, but when the time comes for some pure adrenaline pumping fun you can't go past Carmageddon 2.

Är du en orolig förälder så ska du inte köpa Carmageddon till din femåriga son. Jag skulle inte heller rekommendera att du sätter dig ned och spelar spelet i två timmar innan din uppkörning. Jag vet att en del kanske blir upprörda över det faktum att jag inte är upprörd över spelets grymhet. Jag tycker dock att man ska ta det för vad det är, nämligen ett datorspel och ett alldeles utmärkt sådant.

לסיכום, אנחנו אישית היינו רצים לחנות וקונים את העותק הראשון שמגיע לחנות, אבל כדאי שאתם תחשבו פעמיים גם מבחינת האלימות (אנו לא חושבים שזה מפריע להרבה אנשים) וגם מבחינת הגבלת גיל.

Carmageddon 2 is one of my favorite games to play because you can always jump right in without having to remember what you were doing or where you were. It's a smash fest that quickly releases the brain from anything rational and sets it in a world of free-for-alls where your opponents are waiting to play hockey with it. It is gruesome and graphically violent, but not too disturbingly so (what are these people doing wandering around on a racetrack, anyway?). Carmageddon 2 is, if not the most realistic from a physics standpoint, than the most flat-out fun driving game to ever hit the Macintosh head on. It's the only chance you'll ever have (hopefully) to push an F-16 fighter plane off the deck of an aircraft carrier, race a diesel train, or navigate a roller coaster ride from the comfort of your car.

Carmageddon 2 retains its predecessor's title as the sickest experience in gaming, one that's so over-the-top and twisted that it ultimately proves cathartic for those who experience any form of stress related to their vehicles (or pedestrians). Though it's probably a sign of severe psychological dysfunction, the game is so skillfully produced that you can't help but laugh uncontrollably while playing. Disturbing? Definitely. Entertaining? You bet.

First let me stop and say to you how hard it was for me to put down the game and write this. The game is pure-fun. It's not the running over of the helpless peds or trashing someone else's car, but it's the dark humor that lies in the surface, and the core of this game.

De echte freaks: onmiddelijk kopen. 'Gewone' spelers van Carma I: bezint eer gij begint! Het is niet denkbeeldig dat je het allemaal beu wordt, omdat het voor jou op een opgepoetste voorganger lijkt. Voor de 'ontdekkers' van dit spelgenre: kopen! Dit spel is stukken beter dan zijn voorganger en het spelplezier van Carma II is moeilijk te evenaren in andere 'beschaafde' racespellen. Alle drie de partijen moeten wel met de hoge systeemeisen rekening houden...

С одной стороны, разработчики постарались учесть ошибки предыдущей игры и внести в нее что-то новое. С другой, получившаяся игрушка напоминает скорее улучшенную версию первой — но вряд ли это так плохо, если учесть, что поклонники первой части получили возможность вновь сыграть в любимую старую и одновременно новую игру. Можно говорить о вреде такого явления, как клоны, но в данном случае парням из Stainless удалось избавить нас от неприятного ощущения склонированности и предоставить старым фэнам возможность раздавить еще немного пешеходов, а новых — познакомить с забавным, кровавым и своеобразным миром Carmageddon 2. Что ж, третья часть игры не за горами. Посмотрим, что из себя будет представлять Carmageddon 3...

Overall, I must say this game is not for the average public. It firstly requires that your stomach isn't turned by the first ripped-off body part that you see, but it also helps if you enjoy Car Wars-type of games in general. True, there are no weapons to Carmageddon 2 per se - but then again, this isn't Interstate '76, and I think the point would've been lost had it used weapons. It's a (yet another) fun and innocent way to do things for which people get shot in real life.

Overall, I'm really pleased with Carmageddon 2. The absence of multiplayer, however, is hard to justify and brings the grade down a notch. But for the most part, it fixes all of the minor problems with the original, and adds some flavor along the way. Now go buckle up and kill the innocents - they deserve it.

Het totaalcijfer van Carmageddon II is vanwege de graphics niet uitzonderlijk hoog. Je moet immers eerlijk blijven. Ik denk echter niet dat veel gamers zich wat van dit cijfer zullen aantrekken. En terecht, want Carma II is zeer verslavend.

If you love the smell of gasoline in the morning, prepare to take a huge whiff of victory. This is random violence and destruction at its most beastly. Nothing quite says loving like t-boning a guy and then shoving him into an open flame to fry after all.

Despite how sadistic the game sounds Carmageddon is, in your editor's humble opinion, less violent than games like Quake and Unreal for the simple reason that its out of proportion realism, or lack of it, turns it more into an amusing high than an exploration into evil. Just remember that when you step into your car, society seems to frown on you if you carry over your driving from Carmageddon 2 into real life.

Carmageddon II: Carpocalypse Now is an almost flawless game. The first Carmageddon was just long and involving. But Carmageddon 2 does a good job of maintaining interest. With improved graphics and sound, you now have your new controversial title this year. I still can't get over how fun they made this game. It is definitely a good game to play if you had a bad day. Although it seems sick there's something really funny about running over these pedestrians. And on top of that if you're really sick run over them again. Sigh, too much violence, too much violence.

Because of the linear race progression, you'll sometimes get stuck on a timed mission objective that you'll have to replay until you get it right. But the game isn't all that difficult, and a little perseverance should get you past any roadblocks, metaphorical or not. What you're left with, then, is a game that isn't serious at all but instead offers a fun and colorful, albeit predominantly red, environment to drive across, through, or over. Carmageddon II isn't the most ambitious game you'll ever play, but chances are it'll be one of the more enjoyable games you've tried lately.

Wer Carmageddon 2 mag, liebt das Ungewöhnliche. Ein wenig verrückt wird er auch sein. Denn ganz sicher ist es nicht jedermanns Sache, mit seinem Fahrzeug durch Alienscharen zu pflügen wie ein Bauer mit der Sense durch das Korn. Aber lassen wir mal die Moral außen vor: Das Spielprinzip funktioniert. "Ich bin es, meine Lieben. Der grimmige Sensenmann! Und ich bin da, euch heut zu holen. Hua, hua, hua. (Hohles Gelächter)" Aber selbst Iron Maiden als Soundtrack im Hintergrund und die recht gute Fahrphysik können nicht darüber hinwegtäuschen, daß Carmageddon 2 den Anreiz durch Tollwut auch dringend benötigt. Technisch humpelt das Spiel moderner Programmierkunst nämlich meilenweit hinterher. Der Hinkefuß des Satans? Gut möglich: Wer dadurch Bonusgelder erzielt, daß er seine Gegner durch besonders kunstvolle Fahrweise ins Jenseits befördert, kennt den Stallgeruch der Unterwelt.

Although the violence in Carmageddon 2 may earn it a mention on the floor of the House, the game is mindless fun with a heavy dose of violence. While not for everyone, game players with a healthy grasp on reality will find a lot to enjoy.

Bloodthirsty fans of the original will need no prompting to get into the game; neophytes should give it a race or two. Trust us, Carmageddon 2 will grow on you.

Das martialische Gemetzel, das maßgebliche Kaufargument für Fans außer acht gelassen, verliert Carmageddon 2 schnell seinen Reiz. Das liegt einerseits an der trägen, verkorksten Steuerung: Wer kommt auf die Idee, die Tastaturbelegung standardmäßig auf den Nummernblock zu legen? Außerdem ist die lasche Force-Feedback-Unterstützung ein Witz. Auch das Gameplay verliert allzu schnell seinen Anfangsspaß. Verhältnismäßig zur steigenden Anzahl der Kills sinkt die Motivation. Da können die eingeschobenen Missionen auch nicht mehr viel retten. Lediglich im Mehrspielermodus (via LAN oder Internet) hat Carmageddon 2 für mich eine Daseinsberechtigung.

All in all, CARMAGEDDON 2 has the horsepower and the looks to deliver a nice joyride. But control issues and repetitiveness mean that your ride will likely be a short one.
