Carmageddon 64 is a solid title that puts out a fine amount of action and variety for your gaming dollar. It's not as well suited for younger players given all the senseless violence it encourages, but the older audiences will find a game with a surprisingly solid physics engine, realistic collisions, and some go-anywhere racing that you don't often see on a console system. Running over zombies is but one of the game's morally questionable charms.
You know those times when you have to get up at 3:00 in the morning, your bladder aching, and you shuffle off to the bathroom only to stub your toe on the corner of the bed? Well, imagine that feeling while playing an N64 game, and you'll have a glimmer of what it's like to play Carmageddon 64. This game has been dredged up from the depths of Hades to torture good little boys and girls with horrid gameplay, repulsive graphics and the smelliest sounds you've ever seen. Yes, it confounds the senses that badly. Do yourself a favor -- pee before going to bed and do not rent this game!
In the end, Carmageddon 64 just isn't very playable. The thin pretense of racing doesn't come through, and, unlike the PC versions, it actually matters this time, as there isn't much reward in smashing into the same dodgy vehicles and creatures over and over again. The two-player modes aren't much of a consolation, either, as few people would want to subject their friends to a game with such flawed mechanics.
For a long time I have said that a lot of the gore and violence found in video games is an attempt to cover up sub-standard gameplay. The Red Cross doesn’t have enough blood in its blood banks to cover up for this monstrosity. It is a very rare thing when a game totally devoid of redeeming features, like Carmageddon 64, comes along. Irritating Stick may finally have some competition for the worst game ever.
I never thought it would happen, but there is now actually a game on the market that's impressively worse than Superman 64 -- and it's from Titus Software. Well done old pals! Carmageddon for PC -- a fun little racer -- hits N64 as a ruined, broken, sloppy, worthless port that really only serves one purpose: to remind players just how important time and effort are when porting a franchise to home console. There is no point to this rubbish. Absolutely, positively, whatever you do, do not buy this game!
Si les EPROM ne coûtaient pas si cher, nous aurions sauté sur Carmaggeddon à pieds joints ! 3 minutes de jeu pour 390 FF, ça fait tout de même 130 FF la minute !
