Danger Zone is a simple and barebones game that manages to recapture some of the car-smashing action of the classic Burnout series, but not enough of the joy. Though Burnout's Crash mode was always the star of the show in those games, it turns out that Road Rage, Burning Lap, etc. defined Burnout just as much as Crash did, as well as its personality. Their absence here is felt deeply, though to Danger Zone's credit it's priced accordingly at just $13. As such, it's worth a look for Burnout veterans, as long as you calibrate your expectations appropriately.

Pared-back and wonderfully focused, this is a welcome blast of Burnout magic.

Danger Zone is the beating heart of a concept in search of a full-fledged game to pump life into. While it won't satisfy your lust for chaos the way the Burnout games once did, Danger Zone provides enough thrills to make you want that hypothetical successor more than ever.

In the end, isn't that exactly what Danger Zone should be? It may be short, but it is ever so sweet. Hopefully we can see more of this, either with a full-on sequel or some DLC, because it's been too damn long since we've had a proper Burnout game. Arcade racers need a comeback and Danger Zone would be a perfect reigning champion.

It takes a little while to reach its best, but Danger Zone takes the classic Crash Mode from the Burnout series, distils it and then finds ways to push it to new, even more ridiculous heights. Crash Mode is back, and despite a few flaws, it ends up being as morbidly compelling as ever.

Short, not very beautiful and with a lot of room to improve, but still funny while we wait for a new Burnout game.

Whilst it may not encapsulate the wonder of Burnout's Crash mode, it's still quite fun, and will give you something to do for a few hours.

While Danger Zone provides some thrills and serves as an interesting revival of one of Burnout's beloved game modes, it's often too slow and lifeless to give fans the fix they were hoping for.

Danger Zone might be a lean package, but the car-smashing joy that package contains is more than worth investing in.

Danger Zone is about as barebones as arcade games get, and yet its explosive gameplay loop is so addictive that it's somehow passed our crash test relatively unscathed. The presentation may be offensively simplistic and the runtime a little on the short side, but once you've launched your Smashbreaker a few times, you'll feel like all is well in the world.

That Danger Zone's core design works is unsurprising, given that it's been borrowed wholesale from a different series, but Three Fields has done little to build out the concept into anything worthy of a full game. You'll enjoy what's here well enough, but don't expect it to last very long—or to dazzle much beyond the explosions and sparks.

Danger Zone tries to amuse us with its destruction simulator. However, it achieves the opposite due to its lack of scenarios being these repetitive and without great detail. Its gameplay is simple and with just a few minutes we will drive the vehicle as experts. It won't take us long to complete the scarce content of this title.

Danger Zone is well made game. Unfortunately, the low production budget is visible right from the start. Only one location quickly bores and does not encourage for long hours of gaming.

For all its talk of destruction and carnage, Danger Zone plays it pretty safe.

Danger Zone's gameplay is rock solid, but its sparse presentation and short length make for a pretty forgettable experience.

Wonderful retro-entertainment with this re-imagining of Burnout's crash mode. Play with the laws of physics in your car and get that high score.

Danger Zone may crib liberal notes from the Burnout series, but its lack of personality and options greatly hinders it in the long run. Those dying to relive days gone by might find some enjoyment here, but those looking for the next coming of Criterion's classic are better off playing the originals.

If you are craving that Burnout action but can't be arsed to pull out an old console, then sure, Danger Zone will at least remind you of those glory days. Unfortunately it'll do little else.
