Leave it to the creators of Burnout to bring the action racing genre back to basics with Dangerous Driving!
A pale imitation of a great franchise, Dangerous Driving just can't quite fill the hole left by Burnout.
The charmless and disappointing Dangerous Driving is effectively just Burnout with the soul ripped asunder.
Dangerous Driving is somewhat basic for a racer, but this offering goes at incredible speeds and has unexpected depth and nostalgia for a series that’s found new life. On PC, you’ll have to forego some modern features and connectivity over its console brethren. The amount of hours you’ll spend in Dangerous Driving feels really good, and something you’ll keep coming back to. Dangerous Driving has its flaws, but it’s a magnificent return to form from a small team that knows how to make a Burnout game all but in name.
Dangerous Driving is just alright, it feels aged and it really wasn't anything too exciting to play.
Dangerous Driving is a fun-filled, reckless racing game that should satiate fans that hunger for more of racing classics like the Burnout series. There's also a home here for non-racing game players as well since being reckless in Dangerous Driving is not held against you! Being dangerous behind a wheel has never been so much fun!
Dangerous Driving definitely has the spirit of Burnout, but it doesn’t exactly execute it in the way you’d want.
While Dangerous Driving desperately wants to declare itself Burnout’s successor, it’s simply too hollow to ever truly earn that title. It’s buggy, repetitive and lacks all the depth that made Criterion Software’s acclaimed franchise such a phenomenal hit. There are the fundamentals for an explosively fun driving game within this barebones arcade racer, but ultimately Dangerous Driving is more a knock-off Burnout clone than a worthy spiritual reboot.
Gamers who like the idea of a simple Burnout game without many bells and whistles will have a good time with Dangerous Driving.
