    Danger Zone is a good game if you can appreciate its simplicity. The sparse setting and presentation aside, the puzzle element is a fantastic spin for the game, and it's hard to deny the satisfaction of crashing into tons of vehicles. It also helps that the game's addictive nature and leaderboard presence can inspire multiple runs even after everything is unlocked. For fans of a title that's easy to pick up and quick to play, Danger Zone is worth checking out.

    Danger Zone had the expectations of being a spiritual successor to Burnout, encompassing everything that was good about it. That gameplay is there, somewhere, but it gets lost between the generic level design, and over-reliance of pickups.

    The excitement it provides is still some way away from that of the Burnout series’ crash junctions, but in their absence it goes some distance to fill the void. With more content, a slew of gameplay enhancements and noticeably improved visuals, Xbox One owners may have had to wait for Danger Zone, but it’s definitely been worth it.

    Danger Zone takes the formula made famous by Burnout’s “Crash” mode and tries to recreate it, but that’s pretty much all it accomplishes. It really doesn’t do anything better than what Burnout did 15 years ago and in some cases, it fares worse than the older franchise.

    Good fun crashing simulator that will keep you coming back to improve your score, but not because of the depth of what's available. Here's hoping this is a prerequisite to a fully fledged game from the Three Fields team.

    Whilst it may not encapsulate the wonder of Burnout's Crash mode, it's still quite fun, and will give you something to do for a few hours.

    Danger Zone tries to amuse us with its destruction simulator. However, it achieves the opposite due to its lack of scenarios being these repetitive and without great detail. Its gameplay is simple and with just a few minutes we will drive the vehicle as experts. It won't take us long to complete the scarce content of this title.

Drive your car into others, causing as much damage and mayhem as possible a la Burnout's Crash Zone. However there is quite a bit more to this game than exploding dodgems. Challenging tracks, interesting physics, varied range of explosions (trust me, it's very satisfying) and a huge dollop of fun.
    For a game that you would think would be a quick ten minute pick up when bored, it held me enthralled for hours, down to it's just one more race magnetism. Filled with achievements, for £12 it's an absolute steal (especially having more tracks than other consoles & PC). A solid 8.75 for me. Great fun.

Danger Zone y déboule, sensiblement amélioré graphiquement, avec de nouveaux environnements, des voitures inédites et surtout son lot de niveaux additionnels.

    ça tourne bien malgré quelques accrocs dans les "fly-bys" et ça charge vite. Heureusement, car il me semble que les objectifs de crashes et autres aléas de la destruction ont été revus à la hausse. Il faudra donc planifier et user d'un minimum de stratégie pour faire exploser le compteur d'accidents et mettre sur la paille ces crevards d'assureurs.

    Le gameplay est simple, simpliste même mais ultra efficace... mais la force du jeu reste son humour noir, si britannique... en dehors du fait qu'il soit toujours hilarant de provoquer une pagaille monstre, bien entendu. Un jeu très drôle, comme on en fait peu.

The game however has nailed the one more go gameplay very well and when you first play it it’s super addictive, but in the end the lack of content hurts the game’s replay value. The game is very clever at times and each stage you take part in has a lot of variety and can be very fun at certain stages. The inclusion of a local multiplayer mode would have made the game even more fun and I was very surprised and disappointed that they didn’t include local multiplayer. Without a doubt the game shines brightest when the explosions are happening. The explosions and car crashes can be wild and full of destruction at times and it holds up really well even when there’s complete mayhem happening on the screen. I would however have liked the controls to be more responsive because the steering problems can be very frustrating and off putting at times. If you don’t know about the type of game this is then you will have all the tutorials you need, and I think this was a very good addition. The presentation side of the game was something I was a little disappointed with, and the basic design is something that’s not very memorable at all which is a shame. At the end of the day Danger Zone is a game that’s good for playing in short bursts. It isn’t however a game that can be played for long periods because things start getting repetetive really quickly, and there isn’t much content to mix things up. Fans of the Burnout series will find some enjoyment here, but in the end you just feel like it’s lacking and you’ll be crying out for more. If you want a cheap thrill then Danger Zone has you covered, but if you want more bang for your buck then maybe this game is not for you. Expand
