And yes - the GTA series is nothing like the Carma series... Personally, I had more fun w/Carma 1-3 than GTA3, what w/the insane power-ups, pedestrian damage, and the demolition derby aspects of the game.
And as w/most of the other posters, Carma TDR was initially weird to get into (due to the zombies and the departure from the "cleaner" graphic style of the first two), but eventually still wound up enjoying it.
And Carma 2 doesn't run on DX9? Damn...guess I'll have to fire up the ol' 98 machine to reminisce...
