Game crashes - in a good wayMalkaLT | March 19, 2015 | See all MalkaLT's reviews »
I love racing games, and even more I love to play games where I car drive around the town in free roam mode. And this game is perfect for it. Here you play as Semir and that other guy from Cobra 11 and as we all know there are lots of cars crashing in these series and so is in this game. I have never seen such good driving and car crashing physics like in this game, cars perfectly react to the road and you will totally crash if there is a bump on a road (unless you drive like a granny) but wheres the problem, because you will certainly want to crash just to see how amazing that was (don't try in real life). For people who really care about games graphics I must say that they won't get disappointed in here, but only bad thing about this game is story, nothing interesting to do, no plot twists and missions are not very good, so if you really care about story you will get disappointed here. But you can release that rage on your car ofcorce, so where's the problem? :DD So if you like to drive, if you like to crash, if you like good graphics, if you like open worlds that this game is definitely for you!
Good Graphics,Decent Gameplay,But the Game Design ?DDEMOLITOR | Nov. 6, 2014 | See all DDEMOLITOR's reviews »
Crash Time 2 doesn't has bad driving physics but in this game driving is not enjoyable and doesn't provide any depth.Crash Time 2 is of average length for an action game and so many old Driver Games like missions to complete.Also you can freely roam through the map and so many different unlicensed car to unlock.Unfortunately missions are shallow,very repetitive and aren't well-designed enough. Graphics are good with some very nice car reflections and crash physics are fun to watch.The game has local splitscreen race mode to play with friend and also this is not much exciting like rest of the game.Crash Time 2 is not a bad game,fun for some hours.
One of the worse games I have ever playedBlockAgent | Oct. 11, 2014 | See all BlockAgent's reviews »
Crash Time 2 is a mess of a game. The graphics are just ok, the storyline is bad, the driving is lifeless, the voice acting and script are awful and the programming is full of bugs. There really are no good aspects of this game. It is a german made game so all money is all in german without any way to change it. The accents are strong and the voice acting sounds like the actors and actresses just completed the basic level of Rosetta Stone a week before recording. On several missions I was doing exactly as the game was instructing me to do when all of the sudden, a glitch in programming happens and a AI bad guy car goes AWOL and veers away to nowhere, even though the bad guys objective is near me. Because the bad guy has glitched away, I am now deemed "too far" from him and the mission is failed.
The game starts out by having the narrator refer to the city in which you are driving as "the game area". That's should be your first warning sign. The second warning sign is the slew of tailing missions the game starts you out with. Do yourself a favor and avoid this one.

Own review, taken from Steam and SteamCritic.
This game is...this game...the mechanics of the driving and all are actually pretty enjoyable, and the graphics are pretty decent too. The UI and voice acting leave a little to be desired, but I can live with that. But the missions, the missions, the missions are just unredeemably awful. If this had just been a normal racing game, I would have liked it, but the attempt at open-worldiness is half-baked at best and doesn't improve the game whatsoever. The missions are so finnicky that it's very easy to instantly end up in a position where it becomes unbeatable, and with the complete lack of checkpoints this means you're going to be doing a lot of restarting, doing the same boring stuff over and over and over again. Staying at just the right distance from another car isn't fun, at least as implemented here. And after playing this game for an hour, I didn't get into a single race, which was what I was looking for in the first place. I feel like this game has the makings of a really great low-budget Burnout, but they instead went for some police angle that just doesn't work at all, either thematically or mechanically.

Right off the bat, while Crash Time 2 doesn't have the best visuals, it still looks absolutely stunning maxed out at 1080p. More importantly, is the driving controls. Very well done, and feels natural (keyboard and also 360 controller).
One thing that does reduce the score for me, is that I have no clue what the story is about. You start off with two characters who apparently have some past agenda (it seems to be a story that's native to the developer's country of origin). Not knowing the story does not hinder gameplay, but it does remove from the immersion of the game.
Looking for a sim driving game? This is NOT it. Looking for a good, semi-arcade-ish driving game with interesting gameplay goals? This IS it!
Note to Linux users, Crash Time 2 works great with Wine and CrossOver ( I tested this in CrossOver 12.5, but it should also function in CrossOver 13). Plays beautifully in Ubuntu 13.04. All around, a must purchase simply for the fun it can provide.
