Dangerous Driving is a game about real driving. The sort of driving you want to do when no one else is looking. The sort of driving you’d love to do if only everyone else would get OUT OF THE DAMN WAY! This game gives you the chance to live out that fantasy. To floor it in everyday cars, at high speeds, weaving in and out of traffic and slamming the other cars right off the road. This is a game built in the spirit of the classic arcade racing games of the 80’s and 90’s. It’s about speed, driving skill and beautiful powerslides around epic corners. It’s also about all out aggression, instant retaliation and sweet, sweet revenge. The more dangerously you drive, the faster you can go. Expand

    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 brings the joy of Burnout games back, but the team aims to be so faithful to the original formula that often it forgets to go beyond.

    Dangerous Driving completes Burnout’s revival, but not flawlessly.

    Finally we have a Burnout spiritual successor. The sense of speed is huge and the nostalgic feelings are very strong. And even if it is not a perfect game and there are some flaws, every Burnout fan should seriously buy this game and will surely have a great time.

    This game stands as a proof of concept, a testament that there’s still life in the arcade racing genre. The road ahead is pretty rocky, but the spirit is as alive as ever. Here’s hoping that there’s plenty more Dangerous Driving in the future.

    The most impressive piece to Dangerous Driving is its aesthetic design. Each map is vibrant and awash color and the sound design has noticeable polish. However, the rest of the game feels rather shallow, especially for a spiritual successor to the Burnout series.

    Dangerous Driving is Three Field Entertainment's big step forward with revitalizing the beloved Burnout franchise that EA still has sitting onDangerous Driving is Three Field Entertainment's big step forward with revitalizing the beloved Burnout franchise that EA still has sitting on the back burner. Dangerous Driving is a fun experience but you have to tailor your expectations accordingly because the game is a budget title, and you can really feel it. I LOVE how they took and recreated the UI from Burnout 3 (being that Takedown is my favorite game of all time), definitely gives you the nostalgic feelings right from the start. Graphics are alright, but you can definitely can tell that it's an Unreal Engine title with how glossy everything is. Gameplay is basically a greatest hits version of the franchise, sporting some of the funnest modes from previous games, and even throwing in some twists here and there to spice the old formula up a bit, like Road Rage where some of the events will call for a specific kind of takedown. The driving works, but it does have a feeling of jank from time to time, with odd physics when bouncing off of the walls, or the odd transitions from driving to drifting and back to driving. The game features a fair amount of content with 60+ events spanned across different vehicles classes and various locations, although I am dissapointed that they didn't include any kind of urban tracks (which Burnout 3 was packed full of). The AI is also pretty, hit or miss (I bet you never miss huh, sorry not sorry). The AI will accelerate off the start and pull so far ahead in the start, and in general you will either pull really far ahead, or fall very far behind, it usually likes to lean on one of the 2 extremes, even in the first couple events of the game. Heatwave is an event that really pushes the patience, where 1 mistake will have you falling into last place, so in that mode the AI are EXTREMELY unforgiving. I have also ran into glitches like drifting around a corner and all of a sudden I crash on an invisible wall, which ruins a good Shakedown or Preview Lap event (which are pretty challenging and unforgiving already). Except for the one music track that plays when the games launches, there is no original soundtrack, instead the game allows you to link up with a Spotify Premium account where you can play and control music with the d-pad, which isn't necessarily a replacement for an actual soundtrack, but it is better than nothing, but you have to have Spotify Premium membership. Overall, a decent game that has some missteps but you can see the passion Three Fields put into this one, and I really hope the game is successful so we can see a sequel in the future. Also worth nothing, multiplayer is not in the game at launch and will be patched in within a month or so. Expand

Also, the heatwave events are the biggest joke I've seen in racing games history. A waste of four minutes only to crash at the very end and come in last because the AI drivers drive twice as fast as you without using boost. Expand

    Boring Driving: No skill required

    Enjoy the most boring racing game, you've ever played. You need zero skill or effort to win the race.
    Boring Driving: No skill required

    Enjoy the most boring racing game, you've ever played.
    You need zero skill or effort to win the race. Just hold the gas pedal and nitro together and sometimes press left or right, according to where the road leads.
    After first race, you'll have enough and you'll not want to repeat this pedal, nitro, left and right sh*t again in different surroundings.
