For those familiar with the PC version, Carmageddon is a bit of a let down as it does not offer all the detailed gore that made the original so darn fun. But its Game Boy translation turned out to be a very decent racing game; one that you should add to your Game Boy Color collection.
Unlike its PC brother, the violence is not nearly as evident. Saying that, a more experienced gamer who's had a taste of the PC version may find it very disappointing since the gore that made this game so controversial to begin with is completely lost on this version. Although I will play this one until I beat it, it does not offer up enough replay value to warrant continued gameplay. With some fine-tuning this game could have been a good rendition of the computer version, but they have forgotten all the things that made the original so worthwhile.

Sadly, this game is pretty much a rental only. The strange controls, bland graphics and boring game play make this a poor copy of the original. This is fun for about five minutes alone and maybe ten when linked with a friend.
What one gets with Carmageddon is a game where every pro is met by an equally matched con. Micro Machines and Star Wars: Episode One Racer are both examples of better games in the genre, and with the lack of a two-player feature, there is little reason to pick up Carmageddon. Other than the ability to run over pedestrians, there is nothing to set this game apart from the rest of what's available.
Some games just don't belong on the Game Boy. This is one of them. It has some nice ideas and programming tricks as far as collision detection, differing car controls, and game speed, but it's never fun. Even running down zombies is bland. When we heard this game was being done for Game Boy Color, we never expected it to work. Needless to say, we weren't surprised by this one. The again, I suppose the best it could be would be Carmageddon, so no wonder this is so lackluster.

Aussi mauvais que politiquement incorrect, Carmageddon peut donc aller tenir la chandelle à Mulan et Yar’s revenge dans la cour des zéros pointés...
