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.

It's a fun game both by yourself, with friends, and especially with strangers on the Internet. However, Wreckfest is also pricey, and any buyer is going to have to balance their desire to get in on the action with the knowledge that they can probably find much of the same somewhere else.

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.

‎Wreckfest was already a game that had an incredible degree of fun, but thanks to its new new generation patch, the new graphic effects and the inclusion of the 60 fps that improves its handling in a substantial way, it is very worthwhile to be able to enjoy its crazy driving situations. It is possible that the bugbear title has once again found a gap that years ago they filled themselves with the various installments of Flatout, which broke into the driving genre with great success, focusing entirely on what matters most: Fun.‎

The one put together by the creators of FlatOut is a valid and well-packaged product. The driving features of the game, as might have been expected, obviously remain the destructibility and damage system, but within Wreckfest there is, fortunately, also something more: a complete game and more than worthy of being counted with merit in the small array of titles successfully released from early access.

But, for now, Wreckfest just doesn't live up to the promise of its name. The destruction is technically impressive, but oddly distancing. It awes with flying debris, but rarely exhilarates.

Wreckfest is out of its early access, but there is still work to do, especially to give it a real "soul" in solo mode. It is far above all the competition in rendering physical damage on cars. On PC, he avails of the work of a very active community. Thanks to this, it offers hours of discoveries and online racing. Bugbear will probably work hard to deliver much stuff on the PC version and then an interesting console release by the end of the year.

Wreckfest is a crazy racing game with impressive destruction system and engaging gameplay. Despite few flaws, it's a must-have for every fan of Destruction Derby.

Wreckfest, an intense vehicular combat game by Bugbear, has leapt into the next-gen with its PS5 upgrade. Newcomers will certainly enjoy the mayhem and chaos it brings to derby racing. However, those who are already familiar with the game might wish to read a review or two before deciding whether the upgrade is worth the price tag.

Overall, the game offers a great experience that even though I got tired of after a few hours, I came back to multiple times. The game modes give a solid bit of excitement, but the real fun to me came from the online experience and special vehicles you can use to cause real destruction. I would give the game an overall 4 out of 5. I give it this based on its overall gameplay falling a little short in variety to me, but keep in mind that leaves plenty of room for them to eventually improve on the game.

Wreckfest combines the exact right elements to create something amazing. It's big, ridiculous, loud, and chaotic.

Wreckfest is a very solid game that is been published after five years of early access. The impressive physics, the worderful damage system and a lot of competitions make Wreckfest a must have for this summer.

Undoubtedly, Wreckfest itself is an absolutely fantastic racer and you'll have a blast on Series X regardless of whether you stick with the free 4K, 60FPS patch or go one step further with this paid next-gen upgrade. This is without doubt the definitive way to play the game on Xbox Series X, but thanks to that free patch a couple of months ago, there's really no need to pay the extra money unless you're a devoted Wreckfest nut.

A perfect continuation of what Bugbear has done previously with the Flatout series. They may no longer hold the license to that IP, but they definitely still have the spirit of it. This is a perfect blend of customisation and carnage, with something for everyone. I can't recommend it enough, and it deserves to be just as popular as the games that came before it.
