Danger Zone 2
Top Critic Average
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?
Including gameplay objectives before the big intersection crashes is an addition as fun as the set pieces themselves
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?!
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.
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.

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 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.
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.
