    There is so much fun in Wreckfest. A racing "deathmatch" which originated on the top demolition technology is full of crashes, tension, but also humor and DIY work. [Issue#287]

    A deceptively realistic racing game that doesn't care if you want to ignore the details and just smash every car on the track.

    In the end, Wreckfest is a game that you will tend to make your own fun in. The career mode can get a little old after a while, but the multiplayer makes it even more fun throwing other players into the already impressively crazy mix. Bugbear knows what their players want out of a game from them, and they offer it up in a really fun, chaotic package that any arcade racer can enjoy.

    Wreckfest is a solid arcade racer based on powerslides, muscle cars and spectacular battles, that delivers an immediate, enjoyable and content-rich experience.

    Wreckfest is out of its early access, but there is still work to do, especially to give it a real "soul" in solo mode. It is far above all the competition in rendering physical damage on cars. It offers hours of discoveries and online racing.

    Wreckfest is a great racing game that knows how to find the balance between Destruction Derby-like matches and more traditional races. It lacks some more modes and better performance, but it’s an enjoyable game overall.

    Wreckfest lacks coherent vision. It feels as if Bugbear Interactive, during all these long years of development hell, still haven’t figured out what game exactly they were trying to create.

Really varied cars, their physics differs, the paintings and customization is meaningful and funny.
    The events e.g., go with a 3 wheeled car against 25 school buses are really awesome! I did not expect to be so entertained with this type of game. I thought I have seen everything in this genre already.

    first of all, this game has some issues, its not ultra polished, its not triple A production value, its not graphically perfect and its careerfirst of all, this game has some issues, its not ultra polished, its not triple A production value, its not graphically perfect and its career is a bit dry and lacking in interesting content, however...

    This game has delivered some of the best gameplay I have experienced in a long time, ive played mostly online and find the community so far is solid, friendly, fun and laid back. Racing is often a serious, clean and fair sport where trading paint is almost always as far as it should go but then theres banger racing and this game does banger racing perfect. The damage model is hands down the best in any racing game released so far but they have put thought into the game to ensure you can still race when damaged and continue right until the finish line having fun, lets face it nobody really wants to be out first corner race after race so the game doesn't severely hamper your car or destroy it when taking punishment, you take mechanical damage but really its minor and you can see what the devs are trying to do. the graphics are perfectly fine and at times its often mind blowing when you see the carnage ensue and the game still runs silky smooth, smoother than one would expect! it really is all about that damage and particle system.

    This game manages to produce lots of magical moments that simply cant be reproduced on other more serious games, when you race door to door with 2, 3 or maybe 15 into one corner its a different kind of thrill when you know how this could end, you can hit jumps 3 abreast and come crashing down in a whoile world of carnage but whats I love about the game most when racing is looking into the distance ahead or whats going on behind, when I see a car ahead of me hit a corner all wrong and take to the air in a spin I simply cant help but go wooow! bursting out laughing and then Ill look behind and see the track filled with debris and tyres in the air as battles go on behind, its just so thrilling.

    this game really isn't polished like forza, its cars cant hold a candle to project cars 2, it lacks any real online ranking system which is a real bummer right now but the game excels where all those others simply don't and that's in sheer good old fashioned fun.

    really cant express enough how good this game is, its just a different kind of racing experience and I love it.

As a child - mostly because it was more of an arcade than of a race. Maturing made me switch my tastes somewhat so Wreckfest looks like a matured Flatout game to me. Tho it lacs fantastic soundtrack and a tiny bit of a story comparing to FO1/2, so its only 8/10 for me.
    Anyway, Bugbear are moving in the right direction.

It is still in early access phase like other reviews have noted, but it is still a multiplayer racing game that is lots of fun. Nothing like getting out and banging some cars around. Some of the current faults the game has is the aggressive AI, and sometimes poor control from the players input. But other than that it is fun. For how slow it's development fun, there can be times when you don't want to play because you just want the next update fix to come out. But the developers are constantly working to make it better with each update! Expand

    a game that distinguishes itself from other games through realistic physicality - aaaaaaaaaaaaaand it is gone.

    with the release on the consoles bugbeard has released a huge update (8,8gb) and switched the whole physic to arcade.

    all positive critics were for wreckfest with realistic physic as you can see on the date.

    all players who bought the game because of the realistic physical and accidents are disappointed.

    there are still the old cars and tracks, but the physical has been completely changed from realistic to arcade.

    a pity
