    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

    Je l'ai acheté juste après sa sortie de l'accès anticipé (juin 2018) et je le trouve vraiment fantastique, surtout en multijoueur.
    Le côté "tôle froissée" m'attirait beaucoup et sur ce point on ne peut pas être déçu : la gestion des dégâts est phénoménale, c'est sans doute ce qui ce fait le mieux à l'heure actuelle dans ce type de jeux et il n'est pas rare de terminer une course dans un allume cigare...
    Au delà des carambolages monstres et des accrochages en tous genres avec les concurrents ou les éléments du décor, le pilotage est vraiment très agréable, entre simulation et arcade. La voiture tient bien la piste, on sent le poids du véhicule et il faudra apprendre à maîtriser les différents bolides que l'on débloquera au fur et à mesure (acquisition de points d'expérience en solo comme en multi).
    Les circuits sont bien pensés eux aussi. Certains sont mémorables, comme la fameuse course en 8 où les voitures se croisent à leur risque et péril. Souvent il faut de la chance pour l'emporter (en plus d'un talent certain) et le meilleur pilote n'aura pas toujours le dernier mot. Bref, même un "mauvais" joueur trouvera ici de quoi s'enthousiasmer. Pour décompresser après une rude journée de travail, ce jeu est idéal : fun (encore plus avec des amis) et particulièrement addictif. Souvent je me suis dit : "allez une petite dernière avant d'aller au lit" pour au final empiler les courses. Une belle preuve de qualité et d'intérêt. Vous l'aurez compris : j'adore et je valide.

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
