Carmageddon: Reincarnation Gameplay Review

I'm playing Carmageddon: Reincarnation, an arcade racing game by Stainless Games.

A career mode allows drivers to earn credits between sixteen chapters to unlock cars and customization options; freeplay and online multiplayer are also available. Races can involve checkpoints, laps, deathmatch, running over pedestrians, king of the hill, or the “classic” combination of wrecks, laps, and peds. Handling is sluggish and unresponsive. The game features extremely poor performance (considering the mediocre quality of the graphics), random crashes, long load times, and locks up when switching between songs. Carmageddon: Reincarnation does feature an impressive number of power-ups (both positive and negative) that helps to spice up the races. The AI drivers are terrible with a constant focus on wrecking each other, even during a lap-based event. Poor handling, braindead AI, and stability and performance issues make Carmageddon: Reincarnation a remake to skip.
