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

    Some aspects of the game and unlock requirements may feel a bit repetitive and tedious, for example if you get left behind in a race, then it’s simply irrecoverable. Restart it. You will however be drawn back and your wins will be fist pump moments.

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

    Dangerous Driving feels like the little engine that could. When it works, it is a fantastic experience. It felt like Burnout never left. The lack of music and compromised original consoles though really drags it down a notch. I wanted to love this game a lot more than I did, but as it stands it is an incredible throwback to the glory days of Burnout racing. I hope Three Fields eventually gets to where they want to be and makes a true AAA Burnout clone. I would buy it day one. For now Dangerous Driving is the best alternative we have had in years.

    Three Fields are doing the gaming community a service by keeping the arcade racing genre alive when the big boys seem to have lost interest. Much like their previous entries, there’s a lot to like here – from the fast, responsive action to the sheer thrill of smashing rivals and reveling in that takedown camera. Sadly, its bare-bones approach to modes, its erratic physics, and its barely improved technical aspects, keep it from reaching the heights of its inspiration.

    The spirit of the classic Burnout series is omnipresent. But before the fun kicks into high gear, the highspeed racer is taken down by AI problems or lackluster presentation.

    As a Burnout fan, I had high hopes for Dangerous Driving. Unfortunately, Three Fields' effort fails to capture the spirit and feel of its inspiration, and consequently, emerges as a pale imitation.

    It’s hard to recommend this to anyone unless you’re sorely desperate for a new Burnout game. If anything, Dangerous Driving might leave you pining for a decent sequel more than ever.

The game looks and runs silky smooth most of the time with only occasional jitters, which I believe are a fraction of a second loading sequences on rare occasions. The Burnout series built a massive fanbase rapidly when it came to the arcade style racing and furious soundtracks, as did I spend soo many hours crashing cars at high speeds. I was thoroughly looking forward to the arrival of Dangerous Driving and while it may not be Burnout 3, I have thoroughly enjoyed every game Three Fields Entertainment has brought to the Xbox One. Dangerous Driving rocks you with a huge amount of fun and and custom Spotify music to rock even the original burnout playlists to if you prefer to like me. I found the racing at high speeds to be a rush and I was pleased with the car physics and the ability to adjust the sensitivity in the steering controls. Crashing was still really enjoyable and with the number of courses so the game stays fresh and fun especially if you are rocking to your Spotify favorites along the routes. I'm looking very forward to the DLC and tweaks to come in the following months. Those who are looking for Burnout nostalgia will no doubt have a blast with Dangerous Driving because I absolutely did. This is an excellent game at the right price point and in the end I give it a thumbs up, great work once again Three Fields Entertainment. Expand

SoRealistically, this was never going to be a sequel to Burnout games. And it isn't. The game is fun and addicting, but also rather bland. So yeah, it's disappointing from a Burnout fan's perspective (which i strongly am) but as a game it's hardly offensive.

    It's alright if on sale.

    Ah décidément, le petit développeur indé Three Fields Entertainment dans lequel je plaçais de beaux espoirs (après les bons et hilarantsAh décidément, le petit développeur indé Three Fields Entertainment dans lequel je plaçais de beaux espoirs (après les bons et hilarants Dangerous Golf et Danger Zone) ne cesse de sombrer... et de faire de la merde.

    D'abord avec Danger Zone 2, une suite bâclée et foirée de l'excellent simulateur de carambolages, puis maintenant avec ce Dangerous Driving qui se veut un revival des vieux Burn Out...

    C'est pourtant assez joli et le développeur maîtrise pas mal l'Unreal 4 -malgré quelques ralentissements ; c'est aussi très (trop...) rapide, tellement rapide qu'on se croirait dans un Wipeout en classe Phantom. La difficulté des objectifs, la tricherie avérée de l'IA escamotent bien vite la gratification des "takedowns" (lesquels étaient bien mieux faits... dans Burnout Revenge soit dit en passant !).

    La monotonie des routes qui se ressemblent toutes ou presque contribue aussi à l'ennui qui se dégage rapidement de ce titre qui a récupéré par la même occasion tous les défauts des premiers Burnout d'ailleurs... Avec le boost (quasiment obligatoire) qui augmente encore la vitesse (démente) il faut des réflexes surhumains pour ne pas se gauffrer et partant, ne pas finir dernier.

    On se lasse et on s'énerve devant ce qui n'est en définitive qu'une caricature de jeu d'arcade boursouflé et incroyablement décevant : attention, cette bouse est dangereuse, à éviter soigneusement, car ça colle aux godasses.

Unfortunately, the day I bought it was the day it came out, so there were no reviews telling me how rubbish the game was. The graphics are bad, physics are terrible (going round a corner at full speed without skidding), gameplay is repetitive and dull. I might have written a more positive review had I paid £5 instead. I could not return the game. I have no problem with arcade games, but I do have problems with ones that are more expensive than actually good games that have been made properly. Expand
