NPCs move aside (or pull over) for you, 10/10

Ran over cows where they exploded into gore, 10/10

Warning light at rail road crossing blinking, ignored it and got hit by a train, 10/10

Got crushed by a mobile crane, 10/10

Watched as criminals blew up my comrades, 10/10

Lost both front wheels, couldn't turn any more, 10/10

Pulled over a guy without making contact with him, 10/10

Crushed everyone that drove in front of my APC, 10/10

Ausfahrt, 10/10

Polizei, 10/10

...

Yes, everything said above actually happened (kind of).

Anyway, here's my actual review.

Crash Time 2 is not the best. But it's not the worst. It's not your average A++ racing game. It's mechanics and graphics are okay-ish, compared to other games.

I'll be honest; I had fun. A few hours was enough for me to find some things to do (check one of my screen shots for this game. It involves me running over and gathering NPC vehicles). I also enjoyed how you could actually (kind of) destroy things.

Overall, good game. Has free roam, places to explore, and things to destroy. I'd probably get it when it's cheap though (or in my case, when it's free).

Unexpectedly had fun, 10/10

Once upon a time there was a racing game with good graphics and terrible voice acting that I enjoyed.
Nowdays I found it again.

"I don't have any argument but I don't like it !" -Bad reviews from a random lowbob. 0/10
"Like Skyrim with Polizei." -IGN 2/10
"Polizei, oktoberfest, ausfarht, dummkopfs." -Medic 11/10

So, first of all, this game doesn't deserve all those bad reviews. Everyone seems to have played this game for only 15 minutes, and honestly, you can't judge a game within 15 minutes. This game reviews are clearly manichaean ; you have two possibilities according to Steam reviews : you completly disregarded it because you played a few minutes and no minigun spawned on your car or you will find this game "somewhat OK". In my honest opinion, I really liked this game. Of course, there is tons of better game in that game style, like the FlatOut series, but this game got a decent amount of pros. Let me make a list of the pros, the cons and the neutrals.

Pros :
+ Graphism ; Considering it has been released in 2008-2009.
+ Soundtrack ; Brutal and powerful, one of the best metal and hard rock soundtrack I listened in a videogame.
+ Cars ; Despite the huge load of germans cars, you can still find a great american Dodge Ram SRT 10 called the Pick-up T2. ['Murica intensifies]
+ Gameplay ; Easy, fast and fluid.
+ Open World ; "Like GTA, you know ?"
+ Splitscreen ; 4 players Polizei-Ausfahrt-Party.
+ Race gamemod ; Chaos and destruction.
+ Damage physics ; Pretty decent.

Neutrals :
~ Based on the German TV show Alert for Cobra 11 ; I don't have a strong opinion, some will say this is a great show.
~ Storyline ; "Chef : Cobra 11, I choose you !" "Semir&Ben : OMG God Bless Germany !" "Enemies : I am having a heart attack ! *die*".
~ Voice acting ; It's really bad, I admit but you need to consider the budget they got to do this game.

Cons :
- Lack of clarity and ingame messages ; This game isn't for the lazy ones, you need the ability to easily figure out what's going on and what's the objectives. The less ressourful people will dislike this game.
- Bad staging ; Yes, considering there's no cutscene or models for the characters, they did what they could.
- Advices ; They should show the utility of the Action key in some missions. Futhermore, when you choose a place to do your patrol, check if the car you chose got a red flag next to its name. It means, you have a mission to do, and this car is allowed.

TL;DR, I really appreciate this game. However, don't think this game is incredible like a Grand Theft Auto. And please, if you buy it, don't be one of those bad players making bad reviews with only 15 minutes played.

Nice cars, okay graphics, music bleh. Coming from Need for speed I thought I would be an amazing driver, I was wrong lol. Hitting the space bar lightly will send you into donuts and you will lose your target. Practice makes perfect. I just need a bit more time to get use to the feel of these driving mechanics over my NFS ones. Still, thumbs up for the game because I got it free and you can drive like a psycho :)

Missions are kinda fun, hard to figure it out first, but when you the get the hang of it, its pretty easy to do.
Wish this game had some achievements to get other than the madcop3.

There is a reason these games go free :P :D
Any way average graphics, but sucky controls but yeah fun to play for a while with friends in split screen, the arcade mode is not really worth it and the map sucks big time.

First impressions:

As a long-time racing game fan, seeing a giveaway on Bundle Stars of a racing game was like magic for me. I was like "Wow! This game looks awesome!"

Then I downloaded it and tried to play the tutorial to figure out the controls of this game.
And I encountered so many bugs.

I've clipped through the world a couple of times, had the enemy AI vehicles just randomly disappear and the graphics were very twitchy. I'm playing on the highest possible settings, and I've ran games that required a lot more out of your PC than this one, so I don't know how the graphics could've been twitchy.

Just the TUTORIAL left a negative impression on me.

Though, it has some good parts to it, like the driving feels pretty solid.

However, the damage just sucks ♥♥♥ and so does the single player when you start.
Being a RACING game fan, not driving game fan, I wanted to do some races. Apparently, those are locked.

Meh, it's a 5/10 for me, pretty much a mixed bag.

I'd say play it if you get it for free or as a gift, but buying it? Yeah, nope. Unless it's on a discount.

The game looks very good visually and there's lots of fun bits here and there (example, exploding cows).

That aside, the tutorial does not help you figure out how to play the game in the slightest. It teaches you simple things like, "How to tail a car," and such. But it doesn't really help otherwise. I kinda gave up on the tutorial after the second part since the car I was driving didn't have good handling and I ended up destroying the front wheels to the point that I couldn't drive it anymore. There's also no area where you can see the controls. If there is then I'll correct that part, but as far as I looked I couldn't find any control mapping.

Overall, the game can be very fun. I just had a very difficult time figuring out the controls which turned me off instantly. Most games have been very intuitive about teaching players their controls (even back in the day when controls were simple and easily understood on systems like the SNES). This does not teach you how to use your controller/keyboard. Just kinda figure it out on your own and hope you don't press some "self-destruct" button (note, there is no self-destruct button as far as I know) accidentally.

Crash Time 2 is a very enjoyable game. It's not without bugs, but I think the experience is certainly fun enough to warrant fighting through those.

Visually, it's fantastic, and I had no framerate issues at all running with max graphics on my GTX760 (1680x1050 fullscreen). The cars have great damage models—you can literally knock the wheels off your car, and you will actually feel it. Knock off both your front wheels, and you can't steer anymore and must reset your car. I really liked that touch.

The missions are fun and varied. Even if you do similar things in some missions, they tweak the mechanics enough that you never feel like it's completely monotonous. Driving the RC cars (bomb detonators) is particularly fun.

The world is HUGE, and it's a lot of fun to explore. Granted, there aren't really "side missions", but it's fun to just drive around nonetheless. There were quite a few moments where I went off drops at max speed, and it gave me a real sense of adrenaline flying through the air (fortunately no one was around to mock me shouting, "Woah!!")

The story is interesting enough to keep you engaged, but it won't win any awards. The same is true for the voice acting. For a racing game, it's probably slightly above par.

A good selection of cars are available, and you can pick and choose the cars you use for some missions (though certain missions can only be performed with certain cars). They have completely different feels to them, but for the most part, you're going to want to stick with the faster vehicles for most missions.

I paid $0.99 for the game, and I would honestly have been happy paying $5 for it. I definitely recommend it.

The downsides to this game are the bugs, and here those are (with recommended workarounds if available):
- On "wreck the car" missions, if you flip the opponent's car over, the car disappears and respawns somewhere near you (the same thing that your car would do if it got stuck upside down). If the opponent's car happens to respawn behind you, that means it will likely turn around and drive the other way. I recommend doing your best to not flip over the cars or completely pin them where they can't move. Just keep hitting them with force or get them behind you then keep bumping them as they try to pass you.
- Sometimes, it's just plain hard to find a mission. You drive around for a while and nothing appears. In these cases, try switching cars (look for ones with mission indicators), and try switching starting locations. You shouldn't ever need to be driving around for more than a minute for the mission brief to play, so keep moving about until a mission appears. Annoying, but workable.
- The navigation arrow is absolutely useless sometimes. It will recommend jumps over bridges when your car isn't fast enough to make the jump. Fortunately, the mini-map has a much better direction indicator that adjusts for different routes and recommends shortcuts. I highly recommend using that primarily (even though you have to look off the screen a bit).
