Somewhere in the era of innocence of the PlayStation 2 and the The original, one of the most successful and recognized racing series in the area, threw every shred of realism out the window for dizzying speeds and crazy crashes - the Burnout series, which passed in 2004 in the hands of Along with British developer Criterion Games and became a huge hit with its third installment, Burnout 3: Takedown.

Since then we've had quite a few more successful Burnout games, each with its own approach, but since 2011 with the launch of Burnout Paradise the crazy brand has come into a coma, First and the subsequent action genre, in which parent company EA sees more prestigious revenue potential.

Now comes the fresh game Dangerous Driving - which is also a nostalgic and interesting reminder of the main game status of past works, with the players' mission being to cross the finish line in first place but also crush competitors in the process.

Dangerous Driving is offered for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles and PCs exclusively at the Epic Store (currently) with a $ 30 price tag - and right now The reviews are quite mixed, While some connect more to the lighthearted experience and others are disappointed that this is a variant that is pale in the variety and scope of its content compared to the original.

It seems certain that the quality of the game can be debated in relation to the price tag it requires, though it's hard to ignore that it also fills a niche that has remained empty for years since Burnout came in freeze - so we certainly wish business success in this case, hoping that we would see continued and deserved support And maybe further episodes that can upgrade and upgrade the solid foundation created here.

Reminder: This is how it looked at the beginning of the millennium
