What is Reckless Getaway 2?

Pixelbite’s Reckless Getaway 2 is a wacky driving game where your goal is to evade the police for as long as possible. The controls are purposely frustrating, with the player only having control of the cars steering wheel and not acceleration(though you can go into reverse if stuck). As you evade the cops you have challenges that you can complete and coins you can earn and use to unlock more cars. Each car belongs to one of the game’s six maps. So as you begin to unlock more cars you will also unlock new maps to play in.

Recommendation

Unfortunately this is a hard game to recommend to anyone. The core issue is that the game simply is not fun. The game’s map is unsuited to the control scheme, and there is a real lack of goals to keep you coming back. There are also some instant death obstacles, which are easy to stumble upon unless you are familiar with the layout of the map, leading to frustration. If a game is going to be difficult, it should be fun and rewarding, Reckless Getaway 2 is not.
