Recruit hired gunners to back you up in battle, and then roll into fights and high-speed chases and take down waves of enemies as Dillon—the "Red Flash" himself. Eighty years ago, a cataclysmic event devastated the world. Holed up in "The City" and outlying frontier towns, no survivor is safe now that a mysterious ship has unleashed an army of supercharged monsters. So, prepare for battle: gather resources by helping local businesses and winning races. Then stock up, man the towers, and strengthen barricades to protect each village's livestock! Discover new strategies to take out over 30 different types of enemies: some swim, some dig, some are electrified, poisonous, armored—even flying. Monsters transform into wheeled forms, racing into action-packed, high-speed chases. [Nintendo] Expand

    Dillon’s Dead Heat Breakers is a great title unfortunately released during a mass exodus from the 3DS to the Switch. It’s a shame because Dillon and his pal Russ are a great set of characters and the world they live in definitely could be explored even further but likely won’t, as this series never really took off the way I think Nintendo hoped it would.

    Sometimes the adventure tends to be monotonous. Moreover, it doesn’t have a multiplayer mode. Despite that, the minigames will keep us entertained for a long time and also, it’s really nice that we can see our mii in action as in Miitopia.

    You'll come away with a new appreciation for those oft-ignored indies that make their way to the system every so often.

    This third arrival of The Red Flash to 3DS leaves the impression of being more of the same. The addition of Mii characters to the game feels not enough to justify it’s full-price despite of its cheaper previous versions.

    Dillon’s Dead-Heat Breakers takes the best part of the series’ early games, adds some nice improvements, and provides a more refined overall package. Some of the drawbacks from those originals are still present too, however, with a repetitive nature putting a bit of a downer on proceedings, and the jump in cost from a £9/$10 game to a full retail release doesn’t feel fully justified. It’s a fun and solid experience, but you might want to give this purchase a little more thought unless you’re already entirely convinced.

    Dillon's Dead-Heat Breakers is part of a series of games that had not seen a new iteration for several years and when compared to its predecessors, this certainly feels like an appealing, refined and fun experience. Unfortunately it's also too repetitive, which ends up becoming its biggest issue and its price does not seem fully justified for what this game is offering.
  7. 30
    This third entry in the series, Dillon's Dead-Heat Breakers, is at best woefully insubstantial and at worst torturously protracted.

    It's a very great improvement from the previous two games. Can't wait for a Switch game from Dillon.
