    Danger Zone 2 is exactly what I wanted the first Danger Zone to be: the true follow-up to Burnout’s classic Crash mode that EA won’t give me. It’s not as fully fleshed out or polished as my dream game of this type would be, but as a self-contained and one-note smash-up it shines like a spectacular fireball explosion. Now how about reviving the rest of Burnout? Road Rage mode, anyone?

    It’s great to see crashing as a major game mechanic back with a bang, Danger Zone 2 is the smash ‘em up we’ve been waiting for since PS2 era Burnout.

    It may be a bit rough around the edges, but Danger Zone 2 usurps its predecessor with a smash 'em up high score chaser that captures the joy of Burnout's Crash mode.

    By expanding on the explode-'em-up gameplay we know and love, Danger Zone 2 makes some nifty improvements to the formula. The new locations and more vivid art style vastly improve the game's looks, while the extended run ups add a little extra challenge to the levels. Performance can be a little choppy and vehicle handling lands on the wrong side of generous, but overall, the game still delivers on its promise of a Crash mode experience.

    On their way to create the true Burnout spiritual succesor, Three Field Entertainment delivers an evolution of the well known Crash mode. It's fun and enjoyable, but a little bit pricey for the content it offers, and the control during the driving sequences needs polishing.

    Three Fields continues to slowly inch their way towards the Burnout successor everyone is clamouring for. At the end of the day, Danger Zone 2 is much too light on content to recommend despite scratching the itch to a certain degree.

    Danger Zone 2 isn’t quite as much fun as I remember Burnout being. The crashes feel less satisfying and the vehicles don’t handle as well. But this is by no means a bad game.

    Does what it promises. I'm happy. This team are making a series of games and am looking forward to them getting to the arcade racer one next!

    Its a black jellybean game, you will either love it or hate it.

    Simple concept that anyone familiar with burnout will know, crash your car
    Its a black jellybean game, you will either love it or hate it.

    Simple concept that anyone familiar with burnout will know, crash your car into an intersection and try to do as much damage as possible, this game adds some nuisance by throwing in some variety in vehicle and specific challenges (it almost feels puzzley at time) and like similar games makes you want to hit that platinum mark if you are a completionist.

    Pros
    - Simple and addictive.
    - Things go boom
    - Price point is bang on
    -

    Cons
    - Physics are a bit off at times,
    - high scores can come down to luck
    - some challenges can also come down to luck due to physics

    Honestly I give this an 8 based solely on my enjoyment of the game but i can see how someone else might give it 5 so unlike some games where a rating can be universal its really going to be a do your research and if you feel like this sort of game appeals to you ( think Trackmania and Trials) then pick it up.

    Danger Zone 2 is a crash based game inspired by burnouts crash mode and in fact was made by multiple devolopers from the original burnout..
    unfortunately thought much like crash mode.. this feels like just a mode..
    doesn’t come close to feeling like a complete game..
    This game features 23 challenges across 3 different regions as well as 3 bonus challenges after you complete the game,
    and all of this can be seen in less than 2 hours..
    The concept of the game is simple, for each challenge youre given a different vehicle to drive, youre given an optional task which guarantees you at least a bronze metal and your job is to just make it to the danger zone causing as much damage as you possibly can along your way, and depending on the challenge or car, the strategy pf creating damage and causing crashes changes each time, some smaller vehicles will cause you to instantly crash and fail for example, some challenges are all about boost chains so youll actually be trying to avoid traffic, racing through these streets is thrilling, and every challenge does have a number of vehicles for you to cause crashes for so youre able to cause a destructive explosion and the end of track, so the destruction and the damage isn’t over until its over.
    theres no challenge that feels unfair or frustrating, however I just don’t feel there was enough done here to make this feel like anything more than a standalone burnout mode that has no reason to be standalone, there are again 3 different regions, but if the game never told you this you wouldn’t know, every track aside from a couple with giants gaps in them look and feel the same, I would’ve liked to see things get a bit arcady and over the top taking a chapter from the book of split/second for example, like I don’t know give me boulders and random explosions, anything to make tracks memorable, make them stick out, but nothing like that is done here..
    this is all about score chasing, and with a pretty awful trophy list I feel no incentive to chase these scores or replay tracks, one playthrough was enough for me
    I had fun, the game is thrilling at times.
    but theres just no meat here, no hook.
    I give danger zone 2
    a 6/10
