DANGER ZONE 2 – XBOX ONE REVIEW
Our Xbox One Review of Danger Zone 2
Danger Zone 2 is a driving but not racing game. The objective isn’t to race an opponent to the finish line, instead you must drive to the Danger Zone and cause chaos! The more cars you destory, the more challenges you complete and the making the biggest mess possible will all be factors into getting the best score.
Danger Zone 2 is mostly set on motorways and the ‘Danger Zone’ is a certain part of the motorway, these are usually like crossroads where a lot of traffic would be. Before you get to the Danger Zone you have to drive there, this is called the ‘Run Up’. During the run up you will have a target which states the amount of vehicles you have to crash into on the way to the Danger Zone. If you manager to do this target you will be able to activate your ‘Smash breaker’. Once you get to the Danger Zone and press B this will release your Smash Breaker. Your Smash Breaker basically blows up your car and has an impact on the cars around you.
As well as loading up your Smash Breaker you will also have a Run Up Bonus. You could take this like it’s a little side quest that can get you points. It’s not mandatory to do but will help you rack up the points a lot. These Run Up Bonuses can be very simple but can also be a bit tricky. For example, my favourite one was very simple and that was just ‘Hit every car on the Run Up’ this was simple but if you wanted to get this bonus but missed one then you would have to restart. One of the ones I found a bit trickier was ‘Hit all Taxis on the Run Up’ This got easier the more I tried it because they each of a set start place and route to follow, meaning that when you learn where they are and where they are going they’re easier to take out.
One of my favourite things about Danger Zone 2 is that you don’t have to play in the same vehicle constantly, each level requires you to use a different vehicle. These can be anything froma Taxi, an F1 car and even a Truck! Each of them drive differently and do more damage to vehicles. I like the variety in this feature as it could be quite boring if you had to use the same car every time.
I mentioned earlier about getting as many points as possible. Well this is important because there are 4 different medals available to you. Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. Each medal requires you to get a certain score. In order platinum you will need to complete everything on a race, this means completing the run up bonus, collecting any coins that might be available and making the biggest mess possible. If you’re thinking that platinum doesn’t really matter well there is 100G available for you everytime you get all platinum medals in a region.
