    Anyone remember Carmageddon?

    If so, something's occuring at Carmageddon.com - only a countdown for 9 days from today but that hopefully means something interesting like an accouncement for a new Carma game

    Imagine running over pedestrians in the Dirt 3 (Ego) engine...

    A new Carmageddon game would be fantastic. Although you could run people over in GTA, it's not quite the same.

    Carmageddon was what got me into Iron Maiden. Brilliant game!

    I never did really like Iron Maiden or that sort of music however found there was absolutely no substitute for the soundtrack when running over peds/zombies, mashing opponents and pulling off Cunning Stunts. There's a patch for Carmageddon 2 to make it work on Vista (and 7) which is probably one of the better games. I remember buying the Max Pack with all the goodies when I was 17 (dastardly underage sellers!) - wow, was it that long ago?

    I loved the game - hilarious and so un-PC and if I remember correctly you could run cows over as well.

    Any idea where you can get the game from? That would be cool.

    eBay would be your best bet.

    Not seen it for years I legally own Carmageddon 2 (and have the cd case and code but lost the CD) so found it through the usual naughty routes but can't say I've seen the originals for sale anywhere (have been looking!)
    Seen TDR2000 in a bargain bin a while ago though.

    Loved this game, I patched my version to allow Red blood as apposed to the Green blood the UK version had.

    I played the N46 version. I think it scored something silly like 8% in the magazine reviews.
