I have a duty to inform each and every one of you that Burnout is alive and well, and is now living under the name of Dangerous Driving. While I like to believe that witness protection is actually a thing for videogames that drop off the radar… the truth is, Dangerous Driving is the culmination of work from Three Fields Entertainment. They have been working on their Danger-branded games since their formation in 2014 after leaving Criterion and EA behind. What’s comes in the wake of the Burnout series is Dangerous Driving, a thrill-a-second racer that hits a few bumps along the journey, but makes it to the destination with nothing but mere scratches on the fender. Dangerous Driving is a dream come true, and one you won’t want to wake up from.
I can’t help but start this review in stating that this literally has a highway setting and it’s called Danger Zone… so memories of the song and theme of Top Gun played throughout my head the entire time playing Danger Zone. Not a bad thing. Aside from the movie and song reference I just mentioned this game seems stands out on its own though and is all about the destruction cars, trucks, and as many other vehicles as possible. This is truly a Danger Zone for all involved driving the vehicles.
Three Fields Entertainment is a group of veteran developers who most notably worked on the Burnout series. Now with their own development studio they released Dangerous Golf last year. An explosive not-golf golf game that showed that the developers haven’t forgotten their roots. Danger Zone is their second game as a studio, and is fully realized game that proves you can go home again. Danger Zone is powered by Unreal Engine 4 for devastatingly beautiful destruction and gameplay that encourages high scores against real-time leaderboards.
Three Fields Entertainment, a small independent British developer led by veterans Fiona Sperry and Alex Ward, today announced Danger Zone, a new 3D vehicular destruction game where players crash for cash by creating the biggest car crash possible.
