Scrap Metal attempts to combine car racing and combat into something as delicious as chocolate and peanut butter. But does this title satisfy? …I totally just made myself hungry.
This episode has nothing to do with Infectonator: World Dominator.
RADAR: Scrap Metal Review
XBLA, Car Combat, Slick Entertainment, $15.00
Car combat, man! Who doesn’t love car combat? And Super Off Road! We like that, too, yeah? RC Pro AM? We’re into it? Great – so here’s Scrap Metal, an XBLA “Block Party” title that mashes them all up together into one game. I’d call it total “Carmegeddon,” if there hadn’t already been a shitty title called Carmegeddon. Maybe “Cargasm?” Well, we’ll save the superlatives until we actually analyze the game.
