Playing the freebie carmageddon TDR 2000 and i am actually having fun. Beaten this game only once before and am now replaying it since it also has nosebleed pack which is missing in my cd version that has carmageddon 2 and tdr 2000 together.
The timer is the biggest problem of this game, think for normal stages you get a limit to 4 minutes maxium at least i am playing it on the yellow difficulty in the middle. Usually you need to learn where time bonuses are since you won't always get a lot of chance to crash the other cars so much or get enough time from them since not always will it give you lots of time for crashing. So best option is to race for checkpoints, find time bonuses and crash the cars then, also kill some pedestrians on the side. One thing that also bothered me at start was that physics acted weird and i was quickly wasted because of this i believe. Easiest way to prevent this is to simply fill your armor slot. Sometimes i even destroy the cars fast now, powerups like acme power intesifier and solid granit can destroy cars pretty fast, also i found a nuclear bomb a few times in the game and it usually destroys cars right away when it explodes but does have a timer, one mission this was very usefull since all the mortars weren't enough for 3 cars to destroy in mission.
Am currently at military base, the game also has missions a lot of missinos usually consisting of collecting 3 parts either bomb,fuel, engine, or money for now. The mission usually go like this collect 3 parts from 3 different locations and then drop it on a certain location where you will either have to escape if it's a bomb, money droping was without the presence of police needed and also missions have set timers sometimes you will lose because of this and sometimes you have to wait for the timer to end until you go to the next event.Sometimes there is an arrow showing the way and some of the locations of mission objects can be tricky requiring jumps.
Nosebleed pack i played only a little for now, like the 1920's and speedway racing, i didn't play much 1920's since i usually got wasted by those big police trucks,only used the eagle car for now which has max inside.
