Its time for another VS, first I covered FlatOut 2 and FlatOut Ultimate Carnage, now we will be tackling the Gas Guzzlers series, with Gas Guzzlers: Combat Carnage, and Gas Guzzlers Extreme.

Gas Guzzlers: Combat Carnage was released on May 4, 2012. Its a vehicular combat game made by an indie company called Gamepires, who are now currently working on SCUM. However, due to the game not passing on Steam Greenlight, Gamepires was forced to release the game on different platforms, like Origin, Desura, and a physical boxed copy.

Gamepires then decided their best move would be to get a publisher, update, and re-release the game as Gas Guzzlers Extreme on October 8, 2013 only on Steam. Support for Combat Carnage was dropped, and they continue to update, and add content, including two DLCs, to Extreme until July 11, 2016 with the update.

So on the surface, it seems that Combat Carnage is just an inferior version of Extreme, but its a little more than just that. The games have a vastly different artstyle, and graphics, with Extreme having a more muted color tone, and Combat Carnage with a more vibrate color tone, and more dust/smoke effects. Powerups also work different, with weapon powerups lasting for 3 times in Combat Carnage, but only lasting 1 time in Extreme. If you are curious, you can check out my video which goes over a graphic comparison, and some of the main changes from Combat Carnage to Extreme.

Do you prefer the original version (Gas Guzzlers: Combat Carnage) or the newer version (Gas Guzzlers Extreme), or do you not have a preference?
