Twinfinite writes, "Truth be told, I love a good driving game. Oh no, not a driving simulation, but a driving game. There have been quite a few gems this generation of games that perfectly simulate the feeling of all those edge-of-your-seat chance scenes from your favorite cheesy ’80s action flick, but oddly enough, the car combat genre has seemed to disappear from existence. Gas Guzzlers Extreme has stepped up to pick up the ball where Twisted Metal left it behind years ago, merging racing, chasing down goons, and good-old fashioned American weapons based carnage. Does the game we’re left with purr like a fine tuned kitten or is this title simply another lemon?"
