  • Summary: Fireburst sends players into a fiery, four-wheeled adrenalin frenzy. Behind the wheel of numerous different racers, drivers get to speed along paved race courses or wicked off-road tracks, showing no respect for their rivals. Thanks to a novel boost system, opponents are kept at a distance in spectacular ways in various single and multiplayer modes. The element of fire prominently features in all special maneuvers. It is possible, for example, to coat your own vehicle in protective flames, or make a rival's car explode with a burst of fire. Collapse

    All in all, FIREBURST is a fun racing for the PC that would definitely be more fun on the XBox 360 or PS3 due to its arcade nature. Even so, it works well on the PC but a gamepad definitely enhances the experience.

    Half-way between MotorStorm and FlatOut there is a place for racing arcades with literally burning visuals. Nice price and multiplayer options make Fireburst a good choice. [June 2012]

    The game was built around an idea that unfortunately burns out rather quickly. [July 2012, p.68]

    A sleek-looking game of racing and vehicular combat with an intriguing boost mechanic, but there's not much happening under the hood.

    This is not a good game, and its few shining moments make it all the more frustrating that it was released feeling so unfinished.

    Fireburst i an ok arcade racing game.The fireburst-system works well enough, there are some cool tracks in the game, the visuals are nice, there is plenty of playable characters, there are some good music in the game and the games way of handling the "campaign" with each race having a list of goals to complete is interesting. The game do however have its fair share of problems. The cars handle a bit weird and the car-physics could be improved, there aren't a whole lot of different racing tracks, some goals in the singleplayer campaign is plain annoying and the cars available could be more varied.I had some good hours with the game and i would recommend the game to people interested in the genre if they can get it for a cheap price. I would however say that the game i slightly below average for an arcade racing game so dont expect the world out of it. Expand

    The concept behind the game seemed interesting, but when I actually started playing it, it definitely wasn't as fun as I expected. I mean, it's decent if you're willing to play it for like no more than 2 hours. After that it starts to get really dull. For this reason, I couldn't seem to find anyone to play online which was a huge disappointment. I suggest that you don't waste you time or money with this one. It pretty much sucks. 2/10 Expand
