Danger Zone 2 is exactly what I wanted the first Danger Zone to be: the true follow-up to Burnout's classic Crash mode that EA won't give me. It's not as fully fleshed out or polished as my dream game of this type would be, but as a self-contained and one-note smash-up it shines like a spectacular fireball explosion. Now how about reviving the rest of Burnout? Road Rage mode, anyone?

For fans of Ward, Sperry and Ross' previous work, Danger Zone 2 is the closest we've come to a new Burnout experience in years. Crashing into things hasn't lost any of its base appeal, and while we're waiting for Dangerous Driving to bring things full circle, this is more than worthy of your time.

For fans of Burnout's crash mode and the first Danger Zone, Danger Zone 2 offers more of the same addictive gameplay.

It's great to see crashing as a major game mechanic back with a bang, Danger Zone 2 is the smash ‘em up we've been waiting for since PS2 era Burnout.

Danger Zone 2 improves upon the original in every way, and it pays off so well. This microgame is really something you should play, more so than the previous. Three Fields Entertainment is building up to something big, and that’s coming later this year, known as Dangerous Driving. It’ll be the game we’ve been waiting for, and have been seeing bits and pieces of from these veteran developers of the Burnout series. “If you want something done right, you do it yourself”, and Three Fields Entertainment is doing just that.

It may be a bit rough around the edges, but Danger Zone 2 usurps its predecessor with a smash 'em up high score chaser that captures the joy of Burnout's Crash mode.

A great improvement over the original that almost nails the aesthetic and feel of the games it lovingly recreates even if it is a little rough around the edges. For those yearning for Burnout's Crash mode or that just enjoy score attack games there is a lot to enjoy here!

By expanding on the explode-'em-up gameplay we know and love, Danger Zone 2 makes some nifty improvements to the formula. The new locations and more vivid art style vastly improve the game's looks, while the extended run ups add a little extra challenge to the levels. Performance can be a little choppy and vehicle handling lands on the wrong side of generous, but overall, the game still delivers on its promise of a Crash mode experience.

A good sequel of the ideal game for the Burnout's orphans, or at least the Crash mode ones.

Danger Zone 2 is an explosive and fun, if short, game. It's flashy and exciting where it counts, despite having a few bugs that can be major annoyances, and at the end of the day, still worth a try.

Danger Zone 2 rights some wrongs of the first game, but not all of them, making this game an interesting proposal with some room to keep on improving.

Including gameplay objectives before the big intersection crashes is an addition as fun as the set pieces themselves

In the end, Danger Zone 2 dips below the standard set by the original game. The addition of the run-up makes the levels feel deep, but the wonky physics and crash restrictions and presence of older issues negate all of that positive movement. The lack of modes is accentuated further by the lack of levels, and the middle-of-the-road presentation makes the game feel lackluster. This is the type of game you'll want to pick up at a sale, but if you're more patient, you might want to wait for the developer's upcoming Dangerous Driving to see if it can finally deliver a full Burnout-inspired game.

I had my fun with Danger Zone 2, but it was over way too quick. The graphics could use some additional polish, adding music would go a long way but the biggest improvement I could see for a sequel would simply consist out of providing a lot more content (a level designer could perhaps help keep the game alive). Ironically, the best parts of the game for me, where the bonus levels which asked you to avoid crashing and just wanted you to reach the finish as fast as possible.

Beyond the addictive, puzzle-like challenge of hitting those high scores, there's a fantastic sense of speed here. When you're belting around in the F1 car, just scraping past trucks and getting through minuscule gaps in the traffic, things feel suitably rewarding. It's just such a kick in the airbags that for every time that feeling reveals itself, there are two more times when you'll be frustrated by one of Danger Zone 2's bugs or general inconsistencies.

Three Fields continues to slowly inch their way towards the Burnout successor everyone is clamouring for. At the end of the day, Danger Zone 2 is much too light on content to recommend despite scratching the itch to a certain degree.

There's fun to be had in Danger Zone 2's crash junctions, but the game's short length and shoddy production values make it pretty forgettable.

Danger Zone 2 has all the groundwork set to make an explosive comeback for Burnout, but Three Fields Entertainment just needs to up its quality control. Also, how do we still not have Kenny Loggins on the soundtrack?!

Danger Zone 2 attempts to bring back the crashing thrills of the Burnout franchise, but unfortunately falls prey to presentation issues and a lack of overall content. It's still a fun time for the couple of hours you have with the game, but there are much better arcade racing titles from which to choose.

Three Fields Entertainment showed how to mess up a simple task like expanding one straightforward game mode. What we've got here is strange physics, crazy collision detection and bad design choices.
