Dangerous Driving feels just like Burnout, but it doesn't look or sound the part.
Dangerous Driving definitely has the spirit of Burnout, but it doesn’t exactly execute it in the way you’d want.
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 is an interactive cinematic-thrill-seeker experience, take down other opponents to win!
It's not necessarily a bad thing that developers are trying to follow the formulas that worked several years ago, but executing those formulas is where things get tricky and ruin a huge potential. Dangerous Driving can be considered a direct competition for Burnout Paradise, a title that released in the 7th generation and still beats DD everyday! There is no point in paying 30 dollars for Dangerous Driving, especially now that we have the remastered version of Burnout Paradise for only 20 dollars.

Dangerous Driving doesn't reach the quality of Burnout classics because of its lack of polish, however, it creates an excellent foundation for this series to become the successor the classic series deserves.

And really, when the crashes look like simple physics experiments from the late-90s that can trigger from the slightest of scrapes – it was destined to fall short of hitting its lofty Burnout spiritual successor goal.
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.
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.
Dangerous Driving hits the perfect melody at certain points when focusing on what the team set out for it to do: be a spiritual successor to Burnout. At its peak, it feels like a Burnout game.
