Scrap Metal Review

 

Any racing fans out there ever wondered what would happen if you threw old school NES game R.C. Pro AM and a game like Full Auto or Twisted Metal into a blender?

The cars themselves handle extremely sensitive. Sometimes I felt like I was driving on ice because my car would do a 360 while trying to make a sharp corner. This could be adjusted for by slowing up and really concentrating on your driving technique,...

A smashing good time. The second offering in the Xbox Live Arcade Block Party delivers a trip down memory lane with Scrap Metal; an overhead racing game that combines the...

Multi-player is a blast ; Diverse objectives ; Destruction is awesome

Overly-complicated controls ; Drab color palette ; Character cut-outs

Scrap Metal Review for the XBOX360

 

This ain't your mom's station wagon.

Lots of mission variety; Good value, hours of gameplay; Tight controls, tight mechanics; Upgrade cars and build a garage; Old-school arcade design

Terrible soundtrack; Uneven difficulty; Made me seem crazy

With the Twisted Metal series lying dormant, and Vigilante 8's resurrection being limited to an XBLA version of the original game, car combat hasn't gotten much love in a while. Enter Scrap Metal, a car combat game that takes the genre's standard...

Scrap Metal isn't a bad game, it's just a mixed bag representation of a few different genres. As a top-down racer, it's quite good, it's nearly as good as a demolition derby game, but it really falls short as a car combat game due to its small levels...

Scrap Metal (XBLA) Review

 

This fresh take on vehicular combat revives top-down racing with some of the craziest cars and prettiest explosions you'll find.

On March 10, Slick Entertainment’s Scrap Metal hits Xbox LIVE Arcade, the second entry in Microsoft Game Studios' ongoing Block Party event. Toy Soldiers, a World War I tower defense game, kicked off the event last week, and Scrap Metal follows up with...

Scrap Metal Review (Xbox 360)

 

Each track has a number of different configurations, game types and their own boss character

The problems that seem to plague either control method comes from some occasionally weird responsiveness mixed with a sometimes ridiculous physics engine. Slipping and sliding should be part of the challenge, yes, but when it stops being fun and starts...

Drift around corners with guns blazing and take out legendary competitors in the fast-paced, top-down racing game Scrap Metal. Fight your way through explosive, action-packed missions and defeat cunning bosses to add their vehicles to your garage....

We've modded our cars, got some new guns, rocket launchers and we are ready to race!

Scrap Metal is a fun game, but the frustrating controls and repetitiveness weigh it down. Buy it if you miss playing with Micro Machines, but I'd just go with Vigilante 8.

Anyone who has fond memories of wrestling with one of the three steering wheels on the arcade classic Ivan “Ironman” Stewart's Super Off Road will have a fair idea of what Scrap Metal is about, namely hurling loud cars around small isometric tracks...

While it may sound like Scrap Metal is one to avoid, there is entertainment to found here. The 4-player split screen multiplayer mode functions well enough as a post-pub blast and playing online can be quite fun (though limiting the games to four human...
