This is, without a doubt, the sickest game I have ever played. And I own all of the carmageddons!
I am currently playing the demo level and found that I can do the following:
kill with at least four types of guns
decapitate people with a shovel
pour gasoline on folks, then toss matches
blow up cars
rob a convenience store
smoke "health pipes"
The fire part is the only thing that really disturbs me. The bodies lose their skin and writhe for an awful long time. I think I will stick to the shovel. And peeing on people. That is a riot. You can actually unzip and pee. This causes the townspeople to run, puke and, occasionally, mock you. If you do it in front of a cop, they try to arrest you saying that the peep show is over.
If you play the demo and die before the timer runs out, don't reset right away. You can stick around and watch people gather around, kick your corpse and fight each other. They also scream "Someone call Lieberman." I have a feeling he already knows about this game.
You can complete the game in a passive posture, enduring the idiots in the town while you run your errands, but I don't think I will be able to do that for long. They say the game is "as violent as you are." I guess I am one sick mother.
The full version arrives via fedex Monday. Forgive me.
I have found it helpful to do the stretching exercises my physical therapist recommends. Do some core strengthening exercises, such as the ones highlighted at The Mayo Clinic. By keeping your core strong, your back won't put itself in a position to cause that sciatica pain you are having.
