If all that doesn't faze you (and it shouldn't), Wreckfest more than nails its core gameplay. It's a fun derby racer game that lives up to its FlatOut roots and more. It has a somewhat bare-bones presentation that is rife with bugs and long loading screens, but when it works, it's a remarkable experience from start to finish. If you love this kind of racer, the console version of Wreckfest will hold up its end of the deal and deliver frantic mayhem racing at its best.

Wreckfest is the long-overdue return of serious, high-quality destruction racing. Fierce, frantic fun.

The creators of Flatout channel a little of the classic Destruction Derby as this brilliantly destructive racer emerges from Early Access.

The scope is ultimately limited, but what a roaring spectacle of broken car bits Wreckfest manages.

Not only one of the best racing games of the generation but for once one that feels genuinely different to any of its major rivals – unless you count spiritual predecessor FlatOut.

Wreckfest is a surprising triumph in blending the best that sim and arcade racers have to offer in an explosive and visually gratifying package. A few visual issues and overly aggressive AI do little to spoil one of the best driving games of 2019.

Wreckfest is a solid product. It is fun, has a good amount of content, gives to the player a wide range of personalization and it is visually great. Because of that, even though it doesn't offer something that we haven't seen before, we recommend it for every player that likes the off-road and demolition genres.

Wreckfest is a magnificent driving chaos. A fun game regardless of the outcome of each race with excellent physics and a progressive destruction system that should be patented.

Arcade racers are seeing a resurgence of late and Wreckfest fits nicely into that sub-genre, bringing banger racing into the limelight and turning it up to eleven. It may not be named Destruction Derby, but the spirit of the old Psygnosis classic is alive and well in Bugbear's latest racer.

Wreckfest is a splendid antidote to the po-faced severity of the current crop of Need For Speeds, Crews, and so on.

Wreckfest is a solid game that hits a lot of the right notes, with plenty of technical issues that hold it back from being a classic.

Turn off your mind, relax and ram someone off the road. A definitive festival of wrecking which nails the damage modelling and weighty feel of the cars perfectly, Weckfest is a must for anyone with even the smallest fondest for racing and wrecking.

If you're looking to bring destruction and pandemonium to motorsports, Wreckfest will suit your needs to a tee. The experience is let down by technical grievances far too often, but what's left after the fact is more than worth your time.

Wreckfest for consoles is a fun arcade racing that lacks the technical polishing and diversity of the car selection. Smash opponents into the trash and preserve a car is not easy, but really fun. Detailed damage physics with entourage create an interesting atmosphere of racing for survival. Therefore, fans of the original FlatOut can safely buy it, but better after the patches that will fix bugs with endless loading. In this case, you can raise the final score by one point.

Wreckfest offers the eRacer something not available anywhere else: the ability to race on the computer in cars and at tracks that are accessible to the common man. Don't let the 70's era rust buckets fool you, though - the driving and damage physics are quite good, the damage models are entertaining, and the racing is close and brutal. It's astonishingly fun!

In the end, Wreckfest is a game that you will tend to make your own fun in. The career mode can get a little old after a while, but the multiplayer makes it even more fun throwing other players into the already impressively crazy mix. Bugbear knows what their players want out of a game from them, and they offer it up in a really fun, chaotic package that any arcade racer can enjoy.
