    "I love to play the video games and this one is about war so there is much action to be had. The name of it is the Total War: Arena and it is soo good! You can even play it for free, online with other people that are also online. It is a war simulation game and boy is it a fun one, you should play too!"

      "This game is a lot of fun, just like it was years ago when I used to play the older versions. It's cool being able to play online with tons of people too. A big thing I don't like about it is the whole in-game purchase aspect. It's one thing on games on your phone that are usually free to pay or only a dollar or so,but once I pay anywhere from $20 to $60 for a game I don't like to have to buy upgrades in order to keep up. Sure you can just play a lot, and earn the upgrades; but when so many other people are just buying them it makes the game all around less fun."

      "SkyDrift is one of the most challenging arcade racers I've played in years. It can be a frustrating game at first, but perseverance is rewarded with exhilarating races around tight tracks and a deep customization experience. Definitely not for everyone, but worth it if you're looking for something a little more challenging."

And I don't think that is disparaging at all; I've longed for an update on the Crusin' series of arcade games, and this may be as close as I get. Lots of fun, though a little light on content. I can't wait to see what a sequel looks like!"

      "I was looking for a good PC game that is reminiscent of coin-op arcade games and I found one in Camageddon: Reincarnation. The game allows you to play as one of multiple different vehicles that are loaded with weapons and attitude. The game is fun, frantic, and loud, just like many of my favorite arcade racers. The tracks are challenging and fun to play. One of the most unique aspects of this game, and most shocking, is that you actually accumulate points and bonuses by driving over pedestrians. I love the action and the violence, mixed with the solid racing mechanics."

It's an old game and won;t work on many newer systems and it cost much more than new games that actually work and play much better as well. Skip this and buy yourself 2 newer racing games for the same price, you'll save yourself a headache and have more fun. If you are a collector of Star Wars then maybe this would be a good buy for you."

      "The Carmageddon series of games are unique, to say the least, and the latest installment lives up to its predecessors when it comes to sheer carnage. One of my favorite aspects of Carmageddon: Max Damage is that it satisfies a completely different niche to most racing games, being a destruction-derby racer that focuses on over the top violence rather than tight racing physics. Cars handle loosely and it's more fun to run over pedestrians or smash your opponents' vehicles than it is to execute hairpin turns and race flawlessly. The camera can be unwieldy and the cars don't handle particularly well, but if you're looking for the unique brand of racing that the series is known for, you'll find a lot to like."

      "I'm not really into car games, I find them really repetitive, but Carmageddon: Max Damage seems like a really fun game and a fun way to waste some time. I'm not sure about the longevity factor, but traditional racing games discourage your car hitting anything or getting any damage, but that is completely encouraged in this game. I feel like that will be fun,"
