Metal-mangling driving excitement comes to Xbox as Majesco, one of the fastest-growing publishers of interactive entertainment software, shipped Totaled! nationwide. Developed by Rage Software, the demolition-derby style driving game provides an intense and addictive thrill ride for both the dedicated and casual gamer.

“Driving games are one of the most popular genres of video games and consumers are constantly seeking those that break free from the norm,” said Ken Gold, Vice President of Marketing. “With its pick-up and play capability and $29.99 price point, Totaled! is sure to appeal to an extremely wide audience and will be a must-have for Xbox gamers everywhere.”

Totaled! is both visually and audibly stunning. The 10 featured hotrods, muscle and performance cars are exceptionally detailed with each car comprised of over 10,000 polygons. The game boasts an extremely realistic physics model whereby the outer shell of the car (windows, hood, fenders, doors) and the chassis are able to sustain damage that affects the car’s performance. Punctuating the action is a pulse-pounding soundtrack of punk rock music that perfectly matches the on-screen mayhem. In addition, gamers can also utilize soundtracks saved on their Xbox hard drive.

Scoring in Totaled! is based on the damage inflicted upon other cars and bonus points can be earned for “Crowd Pleasers,” such as rolling a car. With a split-screen, four-player mode, Totaled! also features a variety of game-play options such as Career, Arcade, Multiplayer, and Team modes.

Totaled! allows players to choose from 18 customizable game types and challenges, including:

Free for All -- a standard deathmatch-style game;

Stuntman -- where points are scored for pulling off stunts, jumps, spins and destroying breakable objects;

Eliminator -- a race where the last player to pass through successive check points is eliminated;

Offensive and Defensive Driving -- allowing the gamer to take out an opponent in a given time period or take on a two-on-one challenge where the objective is to stay alive;

Target Jumping -- in which the player dodges traffic, hits the ramp and nails a target;

Hunter -- score from hitting a changing designated target;

Multi-Tag -- hit every other vehicle in the arena within a given time frame;

Bus Jumping -- become a daredevil and go for as many as you can without wrecking;

Eight Indoor and outdoor tracks and arenas, including four challenge areas.

Totaled! for the Xbox is now available nationwide for a suggested retail price of $29.99. More information on this title, as well as Majesco’s entire line-up of exciting products can be found online at
