Armik from Gamerscore Whores writes "Carmageddon Max Damage will be coming to consoles very soon, we had a chance to speak to Nobby Barnden for the second time in 12 months to talk about the new features that Max Damage will bring and the learning experience Stainless Games have had since the release of Carmageddon Reincarnation on PC. It's good news for existing buyers as they will get a free upgrade with a much sturdier engine backing Max Damage. Find out all the details in our video interview."
A Stainless Games Green Man Gaming partnership has been announced and the pair of companies will be working together on a new IP.
Tom Chick - "But regardless of any specific issues with this release, Carmageddon remains a classic and a rare example of gameplay as comedy. Who’s to say whether it would have been created if Charles B. Griffith hadn’t written Death Race 2000? But it’s worth noting that there hasn’t been a movie like it, either in the tiny killer car genre or otherwise. And I’m not aware of gameplay in any open-world game that specifically involves hitting pedestrians. Either it simply can’t happen (The Crew), or you just pretend it didn’t happen (Watch Dogs 2), or you acknowledge that anyone driving over pedestrians is a psycho, so have at it if that’s your bag (Grand Theft Auto V). But Carmageddon: Max Damage is unique, hilarious, a little long in the tooth, and a comedy Charles B. Griffith would be proud to have inspired."
VVV: "Carmageddon: Max Damage retains the series’ crude humour and wanton destruction, but its scrappy presentation and clumsy car handling make this a series that’s still stuck in the past and struggling to stay relevant. If you treat it as a cheap guilty pleasure, it’s possible to overlook its flaws and enjoy the over the top mayhem Carmageddon: Max Damage offers in spades. Otherwise, hardcore fans of the series need only apply."
