Danger Zone 2
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.
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.
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.
For fans of Burnout's crash mode and the first Danger Zone, Danger Zone 2 offers more of the same addictive gameplay.
Danger Zone 2 is a strong sequel to Danger Zone.
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.
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.
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.
A good sequel of the ideal game for the Burnout's orphans, or at least the Crash mode ones.

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.
