PS4 Review: Danger Zone 2

Gonna take you right into the Danger Zone (Sequel)…

Danger Zone 2 takes the crash testing action out of the Test Area and onto real public roads. A high-speed driving game featuring speed, traffic and crashes, Danger Zone 2 lets players loose onto the Freeways of the USA, the Motorways of the UK and the Autovias of Spain as they compete to cause the biggest crash.

The original Danger Zone was billed as a spiritual successor to Burnout’s Crash Mode, something fans have been wanting to see return, along with the series itself…but it looks unlikely that we’ll see another Burnout other than last year’s remastered version of Paradise. Three Fields Entertainment is built up of old Burnout devs and as a result, the perfect candidates to give fans what they want. The first game was only set in a Test Area, so it was limited but still gave us the fun we’ve been craving since Burnout 3 or Burnout Revenge, since Paradise lacked Crash Mode *sobs*.

The sequel takes us out of the Test Area and onto actual roads, the gameplay remains intact from the original, but the locations are more varied and there’s a decent amount of content for the price tag of £15. Fingers crossed that if they do make a third game, we’ll see a mixture of race modes, a version of Road Rage mode and the usual Crash Mode. Add in online and local multiplayer, then you’ve got a hit on your hands.

The Verdict

Danger Zone 2 essentially does what it says on the tin, it provides fans with a more refined Crash Mode than the first game and sets the path for a potential third game that is truer to the original Burnout games, fingers crossed. For a small team, Three Fields Entertainment have done something special here and you owe it to yourself to give this a spin.

Score: 8.0
