Crash-u-like: Danger Zone exploding out May 30th

Shh! I’m typing this quietly so John doesn’t know. If he hears that we’re twelve days away from the launch of Danger Zone [official site], a splode-o-rama drawing heavy inspiration from Burnout’s Crash Mode, he’ll burst into the RPS treehouse shouting “Explosions!” while kicking things over. He flipping adored Crash Mode, see, and Danger Zone is very much doing a similar thing: you try to cause huge crashes to score mega-points. Heck, developers Three Fields Entertainment were even founded by former top brass from Burnout devs Criterion. Here, look at this Danger Zone trailer: Read the rest of this entry »

Danger Zone is a spiritual successor to Burnout 3’s Crash Mode

A couple of Criterion founders abandoned the EA owned studio back in 2014 to go their own way, forming the unenigmatically named Three Fields Entertainment. So far they’ve released the wonky Dangerous Golf and the entirely unnoticed Lethal VR. But no one wanted those. What people want from anyone with the word “Criterion” in their resume is some more Burnout. And ideally, some more Burnout 3: Takedown. Hey, guess what Three Fields just announced is coming out next month? And they’re calling it Danger Zone [official site]. Read the rest of this entry »

Dangerous Golf Feels Like An Early Access Game Not A Finished Product

I’ve been whiling away some pleasant hours smashing up stately homes and gas stations around the world in Dangerous Golf [official site]. But although I’m having an okay time spilling and crashing my way through a global tour, I’m not in love with the game. Heck, I’m not even a hundred percent sure I’ve mastered all of what’s going on.

Okay, so. As you may have worked out from the screenshot at the top, this is not a game about neat putting greens and polite clapping. This is an arcadey minigolf idea which hinges around using the ball to smash up as much of a given room or area as possible – the Burnout Crash mode of adventure golf, which is fitting given its developers’ origins. You can earn more points through things like combos or hitting particular objects or smashing hidden bottles as well as trick shots and so on.

Destructo-Sport: Dangerous Golf Out, Requires Xbox Pad

Dangerous Golf [official site] is a game about smashing environments to pieces using the traditional weaponry of club ‘n’ ball, as seen in sporting competition all around the world. In this version of the game known as golf, you’ll leave the greens behind and set to work smashing kitchens, castles and convenience stores. Developed by new studio Three Fields, which is led Criterion co-founders Fiona Sperry and Alex Ward, the game is now out on PS4, Xbone and PC. It’s the PC release we’re interested in, of course, and Dangerous Golf has landed somewhat in the rough thanks to a lack of mouse and keyboard support.

Dangerous Golf Announced By Ex-Criterion Devs

DANGEROUS GOLF

Say those two words aloud with me now and notice the smiles we’ve broken into. Dangerous Golf [official site]. Yeah, that’s the stuff. And this is before I even mention that it’s a golf game about smashing things. Or that makers Three Fields Entertainment were founded by the co-founders of Criterion Games and include a fair few folks who worked on Burnout and other games with exciting collisions and explosions.

DANGEROUS GOLF!
