The spirit of Burnout returns in a game that trades big-budget spectacle for pure speed.
Dangerous Driving completes Burnout's revival, but not flawlessly.
Its limited budget is obvious but as an unofficial reboot for the Burnout series this is one of the best arcade racers for a long time.
Neither the racing nor the crashes do enough to make this title standout
As a spiritual successor to Burnout 3: Takedown, Dangerous Driving bottles up some of that Criterion magic, but these moments are fleeting and too many issues pile up to make it little more than a pretender.
Despite the sparse menus and weird gameplay hiccups, Dangerous Driving is still a hell of a great time.
All in all, Dangerous Driving is a marked improvement in basically every facet over Danger Zone 1 and 2. This is Three Fields firing on all cylinders and giving Burnout fans the experience they've been craving. While a few technical hiccups stop this from achieving greatness, you really shouldn't sleep on this if you're a fan of arcade racers. Dangerous Driving is the real deal and any Burnout fan would be crazy to skip it.
Dangerous Driving it's like returning to the very first Burnout: say goodby to the open world and its awesome graphics, and be ready to embrace the old fashioned events on classic circuits. It retains the variety type o races, the takedowns,... but without the polishment that make us fall in love with this arcade formula.

Dangerous Driving is the game Burnout fans have been waiting for. Insane speeds, takedowns, permanent wreckage and a raft of events make this not just a spiritual successor, but a new beginning for aggressive arcade racing.
Dangerous Driving is a funny but limited old-style racing game. Its sense of the speed is exhilarating, but on a standard Xbox One/PS4 the frame rate drops to a not so exciting 30fps.
