    It is the anti-Forza. It luxuriates in the dents on a day-to-day sedan instead of the aerodynamic swoop of something Italian and impossibly expensive. It’s too serious for Electronic Arts, but too wild for Papyrus. It’s not interested in car culture or faux social media or sexy street racing. It hasn’t seen any of the Fast and Furious movies. It loves tough cars, not sleek cars. It knows dents add character. You don’t need to drive these beasts around in the desert to make them look like they’ve been scavenging the wasteland. They come that way.

    A deceptively realistic racing game that doesn't care if you want to ignore the details and just smash every car on the track.

    In the end, Wreckfest is a game that you will tend to make your own fun in. The career mode can get a little old after a while, but the multiplayer makes it even more fun throwing other players into the already impressively crazy mix. Bugbear knows what their players want out of a game from them, and they offer it up in a really fun, chaotic package that any arcade racer can enjoy.

    Wreckfest is a solid arcade racer based on powerslides, muscle cars and spectacular battles, that delivers an immediate, enjoyable and content-rich experience.

    Wreckfest is a very solid game that is been published after five years of early access. The impressive physics, the wonderful damage system and a plenty of competitions make Wreckfest a must have for this summer.

    Wreckfest is a magnificent driving chaos. A fun game regardless of the outcome of each race with excellent physics and a progressive destruction system that should be patented.

    Wreckfest lacks coherent vision. It feels as if Bugbear Interactive, during all these long years of development hell, still haven’t figured out what game exactly they were trying to create.

    It's like Dirt Rally and BeamNG had a hillbilly child. Excellent damage model, brilliant wheel handling but fun with gamepad too

It is still in early access phase like other reviews have noted, but it is still a multiplayer racing game that is lots of fun. Nothing like getting out and banging some cars around. Some of the current faults the game has is the aggressive AI, and sometimes poor control from the players input. But other than that it is fun. For how slow it's development fun, there can be times when you don't want to play because you just want the next update fix to come out. But the developers are constantly working to make it better with each update! Expand

    I was thinking this was like flatout but its only vaguely similar at best, if it was below £10 I would consider it worth it but the game as itI was thinking this was like flatout but its only vaguely similar at best, if it was below £10 I would consider it worth it but the game as it is is just far too limited and stops being fun quite quickly with similar looking tracks that dont have shortcuts or any variation along with a limited roster of cars.
