  • Summary: Death Track: Resurrection is a racing/action title that takes players into a post-apocalyptic, not-too-distant future where traditional sports have been replaced by far more violent entertainment. The main event, The Survival Race, is a deadly combat racing tournament that draws the world’s best drivers to compete in spectacular road battles with powerful, weapons-laden hot rods. Gamers will drive, battle and try to survive in races that take place in twisted future versions of the planet’s biggest cities. Combat racing across post apocalyptic versions of 10 major cities: Bangkok, Vatican City, London, Moscow, New York, Paris, Prague, San Diego, Istanbul and Tokyo. Destructible environments add to the chaotic destruction surrounding each race. 10 powerful car models, customizable with multiple weapons, upgrades and paint jobs. Thrilling suspense story drives the single-player narrative. [Aspyr Media] Expand

  1. Tracks are what makes Resurrection so memorable. It’s hard to forget battles on the decaying streets of once-beautiful cities. Forgotten, overgrown San Diego, rainy Bangkok, mysterious Prague, snowbound Moscow...These places look fantastic.

    This is a game that has a definite Jekyll and Hyde personality that doesn't make it a horrible game, but it doesn't make it a great one, either.
  3. Surprisingly a good action racing game that excels in graphics, atmosphere and plenty of enjoyable tracks. All fun is gone when you realize that the makers forget to add a multiplayer option. [Apr 2009]
  4. Death Track Resurrection is one of those PC games that would be better on a console. If you want a PlayStation-esque gaming experience on your PC, by all means give it a try. Otherwise, not so much.
  5. This car combat racing game provides some high speed fun, but numerous frustrations and a lack of online play put the brakes on.
  6. Death Track: Resurrection is an outdated, dismal driving experience that does nothing but embarrass the combat racing genre.
  7. The whole thing is an abomination. [Aug 2009, p.73]

    Excellent game, a game that is a true followup to the original Death Track game. The only major negative is that the multiplayer functionality was not made, even though it was said during development that it would be. Expand

    I played the original Death Track in the 90's, and loved it. I still have and play games Road Wars on the system I'm typing this on. Seeing an updated Death Track was awesome news to me.

    The graphics are beautiful, and the concept of blowing up targets alongside the track for bonus credits was great. Unfortunately, you HAVE to make the top 3 cars to progress from the first track and to keep the money that you make on your first race. Combined with the fact that the AI drives WAY too well even on the "LOW" difficulty setting and it is difficult to see the turns and indestructible columns and fences in the track, and you will find yourself stuck at the first level forever. Nice try, but being unable to advance and unlock anything more after a couple of hours trying just isn't fun, no matter how pretty the graphics are.

    Oh, and it would have been nice to customize your car a bit at first.

    FWIW, I do recommend Road Wars in the genre of combat racing games.
