Crashday game review

And what developers did not promise … In general, I advise you to bypass it. But today it will be a completely different game. The name of this game can be translated into Russian as “Day of Accidents.” Let’s see how reality corresponds to the name. And so, we meet today’s guest – the game “Crashday”.

System requirements

The game can be classified as a game with low resource intensity. Of the features – 1Gb of hard disk space and installed DirectX 9.0c.

Game process

The game has three options (in addition to playing online): single player, career and mini-games. Let’s start with a career, as the best option is to first go through a career, and then indulge in mini-games and single races.

Unfortunately, the career in the game is quite short – some 24 missions plus the final battle with the supercar. The entire career is divided into three stages of 8 missions. For completing missions you are given cash (for buying cars and tuning) and respect points (for opening new cars and new tuning elements).

12 cars are available in the game, among which there are junk (police car, bug), as well as racing and combat vehicles (hummer, pickup). Naturally, you have to start with less – they give over a police car that misses the stars from the sky. By the way, I’ll say that it can be slightly transformed and it will look like this:

As you progress through your career, we will get to know all the possible game modes. The most famous (therefore, the most boring) – circular races on checkpoints (simple and retirement). I note only that all the tracks are not made as roads, which are impossible to drive off, but as small locations. You can leave the road, for example, to cut it off and go to the next checkpoint directly, but it will be faster along the road. Although sometimes it turns out to cut faster.

Other modes are much more interesting. For example, “hold the flag.” Two teams must take possession of the flag – a big smile, and drive through it through checkpoints. If you go carelessly (and there is neither time nor desire to drive carefully), the emoticon will fall off and unfriendly rivals will not allow it to lie idle for a long time. The situation is complicated by the fact that as you progress through a career, opponents become steeper and purchased by weapons. And to leave a car that is faster than you, and even armed, is extremely difficult.

Another interesting game mode is the bomb race on the roof. The bomb will explode if you drive slower than the set speed. Passing checkpoints, the bar increases and at the end of the track the minimum speed can be more than 150 km / h. Think simple?

Or a sprint surrounded by law enforcers. And not simple, but armed. Fortunately, they give us a racing car. Only if you do not know how to manage it (and her character is very wayward), then the bullets will not leave you alone.

And now for the fun part. The first is the Tricks mode.

Here you have to show on its ruin everything that it is capable of, or even more. The higher and further you jump, the more you can turn the car and rotate it in different planes, the more details fall off from it when it lands, the more points you get. The sight is very beautiful, especially when the jump is long and with rotation in different planes. And with each fall, the look of the car becomes less and less profitable. All kinds of slides and ledges on the landscape help to perform tricks.

And secondly, the “Crash” mode. Here the cooler is the one who doesn’t have a car faster, but who has it more armored and armed. This is a real battle to the death, only in cars.

Destruction of our car is accompanied by a wonderful explosion, as a result of which all its parts scatter in all directions. This is the best thing in the game. Better to see once than read a hundred reviews 🙂

I do not specifically consider the remaining modes (for example, “pass the bomb”) to leave you a little surprise. If you know absolutely everything about the game, then playing will not be so interesting;)

Now let’s move on to cars and tuning. As I said – there are 12 cars in the game. Tuning in the game compared to NFS: UG is poor. Most of the improvements are aimed at improving speed and combat characteristics. Fortunately, tuning is conscientious. If you choose a racing suspension, the car will feel more confident at high speeds. And if you choose off-road, the car will be more manageable on the road. The same can be said about the wheels. I must say thanks to the developers – here they worked in good faith.

The appearance of your iron friend is not very flexible. You can change: the rim, bumpers and skirts, spoilers, hoods, the main color of the car and vinyl.
