  • Summary: [Xbox Live Arcade] Doritos' Dash of Destruction is a fun and fast-paced racing game. Blast your way through cities as a hungry Tyrannosaurus Rex, as you chase a speeding Delivery Truck full of tasty Doritos. Or, try zooming in and out of the T-Rex's path of destruction as the speedy Delivery Truck in search of your Doritos drop-off points. For even more racing madness, Chaos mode lets you and three friends charge through cities eating Trucks or trying not to be eaten. In Zen mode, eat the Truck to become the Truck. [Microsoft] Expand

    Overall the best thing, besides the fact this is free, is the fact that it has the easiest achievements to date, besides using your Avatar.
  2. It’s not going to win any Game of the Year prizes…in fact, it’s not even a great game. But it’s worth the attention of Xbox 360 owners, and hopefully something we’ll see happen again for how it involved the community.
  3. Relatively amusing. [Issue#42, p.112]
  4. Proof that in life, you get what you pay for. [Feb 2009, p.91]
  5. Overall Dash of Destruction is a pleasant enough detor that for younger gamers may prove to be more entertaining.
  6. Doritos: Dash of Destruction isn’t the best of games available from the Xbox LIVE Arcade, but for free it is a must-download – especially for achievement junkies looking to earn some easy GamerScore.
  7. A brief distraction from a never-ending chain of blockbuster epics.

    Wow! If all the "gametizements" were this fun, I'd probably buy a lot more Doritos or Toyotas or whatever they're hawking. I had a rollicing good time driving about in increasingly souped up delivery vans in a desperate attempt to avoid being eaten by velociraptors, or T-Rex or whatever they were. It was slightly less fun trying to gorge myself on Doritos vans as an increasingly cybernetic dinosaur. Expand

    All things considered, this was pretty good for a free game. Dinosaur controls are a little tricky, but those for the delivery vans work well enough. Both are fast paced. Completely destructible environments are fun and actually affect gameplay. You'll have the thing beaten in 30 minutes -- so it's an easy 200 points for your gamerscore. All in all, not a bad deal. I can handle a little advertising in exchange for a fun, short little game like this. Expand

    I'm giving this a 1. Why? Because it's free. If it had cost any money at all, I would have nominated it for worst game of the year. The only compliment that i can give it is that it's not "Yaris". Expand

    Unplayable controls, nasty visuals, lacking in content and generally a horrible game. The concept is OK a simple game of cat & mouse. But seriously, the only reason you'd play this game is for achievements, because it's free. Otherwise, steer clear from this garbage. Expand

    It's about as deep as a flash game. It gives an easy 200 gamerscore and will rot forever on your hard drive when you're done in five minutes. It's also feels very overpriced, even though it's free to begin with. Just thinking about it is boring me. I don't need to comment on the sound and graphics thoroughly, what would you expect. A real blemish on the shining face of Doritos. Expand
