Danger Zone 2
Top Critic Average
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.
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!
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.
For what it is, Danger Zone 2 isn't a bad game.
Including gameplay objectives before the big intersection crashes is an addition as fun as the set pieces themselves
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.
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 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.
