Three Fields has slowly stepped up their releases, getting closer to their legacy while at Criterion on the Burnout series. Danger Zone 2 is the strongest step so far in terms of looking to recapture the magic of the classic Crash mode. Only 9 months out from the first in the series with another sequel, Dangerous Driving, already announced.
Straight off the bat you’ll notice that the game has moved from the concrete testing rooms of the first game into the classic pieces of roadway you would see in a racing game, as a run up to the crash zone. Art is crisp and colourful with the focus on clean visuals to make flying down roads easier to gauge. Checking traffic sees explosions of sparks as they careen out of control, but damage to vehicles are restricted to a fairly binary system of fine or wrecked which takes away some of the enjoyment of wrecking havoc to an intersection.
