SummaryCars and Guns: Win-Win
The GoodThere's a lot to like. Solid physics, large selection of cars and guns, "permanent" death of gang members, a variety of events to compete in and a solid community of gamers. It's just plain fun, and the persistent realtime world makes it more addictive than most anything I've played. Oh, and since it's a turn-based game I don't have to try and match my aging reflexes with some teenager all hopped up on Monster drinks.
The BadThe computer opponents aren't rocket scientists, that's for sure. They're still lethal, but not as often as they could be.
The Bottom LineI spent quite a while searching for an online equivalent to a game I played during my high school years: Steve Jackson's CAR WARS. This is it. Except I don't have to worry about dice and turn templates and sneezing the entire combat off the map.
It's highly addictive, wickedly unforgiving (I'm still mourning the gang leader I lost last week), and did I mention there's cars with guns on them? What's not to like?
