Cel Damage HD Review | Hardcore Gamer

Cel Damage was a launch title for the original Xbox featuring cartoony characters driving cars, demolition derby style. I’m telling you this now because there’s a good chance that you didn’t play it. It didn’t really sell that well, nor did it do much for either critics or fans of the genre. On the list of games that needed an HD remake, Cel Damage was well outside of the top…say…1000. But tell that to Finish Line Games, who enthusiastically took on the challenge of giving this underrated launch game an HD upgrade for PS4, PS3 and Vita. Based on Cel Damage: Overdrive (an upgraded version of the game with multiple gameplay changes that was only released on PS2 in Europe), Cel Damage HD brings the underrated party game to PSN. It’s a flawed, but stylish game that isn’t going to set the world on fire, but could very well bring a spark to your next gaming party.

I still don't get why they made this game.

Why they re-released a 6th gen title in the 8th with no real technical improvements you mean.

buying a psn card later for this and trials. i think this looks like one of those mindless fun games. one of those stupid fun games to play

Why not? It's going to sell like crazy on the PS4 . The best decision any game company can make is release on the PS4. It's kind of a phenomenon right now.

Game was amazing back then and it's only right to let a new generation experience such an underrated game.

I had never played the game before and I had some $ in my account so I downloaded it. It is simple. mindless, and a lot of fun. The controls are simple enough to get challenged by your average 8 year old, but there is still some tricks and skill involved to master. It's nothing special to look at but it runs very smooth and most of all fun.

I was looking through the Store and saw this on Tuesday and thought it was a glitch or something.I had to make several double takes... What a random game to re-release.

The lack of multiplayer really kills this game on the Vita; as it gets old extremely fast. I can understand the omission of online multiplayer on all 3 platforms, as at the very least the PS3 and PS4 versions of the game have splitscreen, but for the Vita to have no multuplayer at all is a real shame. I know the game is cross-buy, which is great, but for Vita-only owners, this game isn't worth it at all.

That being said, I still enjoy the core gameplay and bought it for nostalgia's sake, and the game runs well, and the controls are fine.
