If you are a regular visitor to Game-Debate you will know that we often find ourselves explaining, games like Battlefield 3 may go on about being system breakers but when the same game is also coming out on console, you can bet your bottom dollar [ed. do they still say that?] any 6 year old machine will run it. So they throw around the high system specs and scare gamers on the lead up but really...pah.

When a game comes along like Gas Guzzlers, sporting super slick graphical goodness, rivaling any modern day car simulator, and they throw down some seriously heavy min and rec system requirements, while telling you it is a PC exclusive, you should gulp. Racing simulation games are traditionally well known for their pin point accurate graphics and physics, whereas Gas Guzzlers: Combat Carnage, to give you its full title, also throws in....thats right, massive guns bolted to the side of your vehicle and keeps a 3rd person perspective so you can check out the carnage as it happens. Lets take a look at these hefty Gas Guzzler system requirements...
