Description official descriptions

You probably feel like a crash test dummy when you're playing this game - it's not only a racing game, but you get points for wrecking your enemies! The amount of points you get depends on how you hit them ... e.g. you get more points for getting them do a 360 other than driving into their sides at high speed. The game has more to offer: a head to head mode with only two cars or the legendary destruction derby itself - a huge arena, every car starts at the edge of it, and then - have a nice crash!

Great fun. Pity it's not networkable...

The Good
Wonderful fun - stupidly simple, great graphics and sound (for the time), put your foot down and go!!

The Bad
A bit too easy to complete the leagues, and no network play. This game would have been great fun as a network game.

The Bottom Line
Quick, easy and fun. Just don't take it seriously.

A pretty good crashing game. Hehe.

The Good
I liked how all the parts of your car fell off when you crashed into other cars. That was pretty funny in my opinion. The 3D models weren't that up to scratch, but good for its time.

The Bad
I can't think of anything that made me not like this game. Almost everyone's heard of this game.

The Bottom Line
I would buy it if you see it as a budget release. A must have.

Great crashing game!!!

The Good
The gameplay is great, just drive and crash. The best part is 'the bowl', where you must collect many points by destroing other cars. And this so long you are at one part. And when your car is down, it drive on a other way and you can really see the damage. The sound is also great.

The Bad
The graphics are not so perfect as the games these days. But it still fine.

The Bottom Line
If you failed for you driving test and will lose your aggresion, then this is the game for you. It is also a good driving game for those who already have there license (or not)
