I used to play some FULL AUTO 2 on ps3. The online had potential but hardly anyone played it, and its slow system of unlocking weapons/upgrades made the matches between veterans and newbs too unbalanced to be fun (similar to TMX). the game would have been better more focused on the car combat though. I didn't like the races. DEAD IN THE WATER for PS1 similarly had that problem. The races stunk, but the (boat) combat was fun. CEL DAMAGE however, managed to do both modes well. as for CARMAGEDDON, I kind of hate its gameplay.

Also, I don't think STAR WARS: DEMOLITION has been mentioned yet, but that's a legit vehicular combat title similar to Vigilante 8 (same developers).

Then there's the DESTRUCTION DERBY series. wasn't a fan. demolition derby racing is closer to the carmageddon style anyway.

an even older racer/shooter not mentioned so far is CRASH N BURN, 1993 title for Panasonic 3DO.

I was trying to stay away from normal demo derby. Carmaggedon was a stretch honestly.


I also thought about Crash N burn. Just didn't seem that combat heavy to me, but it does belong here I suppose.




Never even heard of star wars demolition. Good one Mosh.



Firebugs Ps1 (Eu only Looks very similar to rollcage)



Road Riot 4wd (Snes Version ehhh)



Road Riot 4wd (Arcade version. Not a bad choice if you can work MAME)



Cycle warriors...? Road rash before road rash....? Kinda a stretch here..(Arcade)



Motorgun (Cancelled game between the old Vigilante 8 team and Dave Jaffe)

Diesel Guns is available on Steam and is still being developed in Early Access. It's a really solid game.

It's a shame neither of the two games I consider to be the most compelling vehicle combat games within the last year have been brought up here. Either one of these games honestly deserve their own thread to bring attention to them in my opinion, but I'll do a quick rundown on them here in the meantime.

Auto Age: Standoff




http://store.steampowered.com/app/458680/

I easily consider this to be the best vehicle combat game since TM 2012. Even as an indie title, it has managed to really impress me and its gameplay is really mechanically solid. Driving in of itself is fun and very responsive. The aerial element is balanced well and adds a lot of depth to how you can navigate across the maps and dodge weapons. There's a ton of vehicles and a good variety of weapons and modules you can mix and match with custom loadouts. There's plenty of maps and a wide variety of modes. The combat has a surprising amount of depth to it. Overall, it's really fun.

Most importantly though, the game has a lot of heart to it. The 80's vibe doesn't feel forced, and the cell-shaded aesthetic compliments it well. It has a great soundtrack and feels like a very professional product as a whole. Even though it originally released as a full game, the game has received a lot of substantial updates expanding the number of vehicles, maps and modes since the game released. At the price of $10 it's a great value, even though it lack a substantial single-player campaign.

Unfortunately, the game has really been a victim of the over-saturated market of indie games on Steam. Being a primarily-online game, it garnered little attention at launch and died pretty quickly. Thankfully, the game does sport bots which are pretty challenging. You've basically got to arrange matches or announce that you're looking to play with others with their Discord channel in order get human competition. Still, I'd really recommend checking it out. It really is a hidden gem and is well worth supporting the devs.

notmycar




https://notmycar.com

This is a game that's currently in pre-alpha, but is already showing a lot of promise and has really surprised me. Yes, it's a battle royale. I am not fond of the genre at all, and I think that pretty much all of the battle royale games that have been trending for the last couple years are extremely flawed games that get a pass for their pisspoor gameplay because of how immersive they are and how effectively they channel our suppressed hunter-gatherer instincts. However, notmycar actually has the potential to not be weighed down by most of those same faults.

What surprised me the most about the game is the combat. Going into it I expected it to be very similar to Crossout (which is complete trash in my opinion) and essentially be turret-based tank combat with slightly faster vehicles which would just become a war of attrition. And honestly, the first few matches I played did feel that way. However, as I and other players improved the power of the front-mounted forward-fire weapons (ala TM), the wide range of abilities, the power ram damage and the general speed and manoeuvrability of vehicles has proven to me that there's actually a decent level of depth to it.

As a TM community we rarely, if ever play online free-for-all last man standing since it's the dullest and easiest mode to exploit, which is ironically what the series' single player is entirely based on. Even in early form, NMC plays like FFA LMS vehicle combat done right. The game has the potential to be very fast-paced, resource gathering is crucial and unlike other battle royale games, the combat is almost entirely close-quarters. In fact, the long-range sniper in the first match in the linked video isn't even in the game anymore as far as I can tell. I recommend checking out the pre-alpha and following the game as it progresses in development.

Auto age stand off looks pretty good. In all my research I haven't come across that one. Good show Muddeh.


I've seen notmycar, but all I found was a page for pre-alpha sign up so I didn't bother to post it up. Good though you've actually played it and can give a opinion on it. I was interested even if battle royals are not my thing

Later today I'm going to to a full post dedicated to Road Wars and how to get it to run on modern systems. After playing a bit last night, I really enjoyed the game.

Robocraft Royale




http://store.steampowered.com/app/804810/

New battle royale game based on the moderately-successful free to play game Robocraft. Apparently it has really bad optimization issues on top of being dead on arrival. It's still in Early Access, but the concurrent player count already dipped into the single digits in less than twelve hours and it's in pretty big trouble.
