Excerpt: "The voicework continues to be horrendous, with the announcer sounding like Serious Sam. Among the voices that can be picked for your driver, there’s an awful sounding Arnold impersonator and perhaps a literally phoned-in Jon St. John doing Duke Nukem. The game’s music is generic as hell and utterly forgettable. The game’s bots with the driver names come out of a children’s pun book written by Dane Cook. But this is all the same as it was before, nothing new was attempted here to improve over the original.
Gas Guzzlers Extreme is a very similar experience to Gas Guzzlers Combat Carnage was. It is improved in certain ways as it involves Steamworks. It is virtually bug-free and works as advertised. It’s just a shallow game with not a lot going for it that makes it stand out or memorable. There are times when the game can be fun and hectic, but that momentum simply doesn’t keep up, or happens right near the end of a race. As a redux of the original game that Gamepires made, it’s a promising game that only blows up at the line."
