Destruction AllStars acts as a reminder that vehicular-based combat titles are in incredibly short supply in the gaming world. While developer Lucid Games' latest colourful title fills that void for a few hours of pure mayhem and carnage, it leaves a lot to be desired for the classic days of Twisted Metal, Destruction Derby and bolder entries in the sub-genre. Destruction AllStars is fun while it lasts, with colourful characters and engaging combat, but it's impact is diluted by a severe lack of content and bizarre paid DLC add-ons.
Destruction AllStars follows a pretty simple premise: several players are thrown into a brightly lit arena and must find vehicles scattered around the environment in order to ram other opponents for points or objectives. There's some variety in the way each mode is presented, but for the most part, your priority will be to ram into others at high speeds in elaborate games of chicken. On paper, the concept is cool and could potentially make for a great breakaway from its battle royale contemporaries flooding the market, but Destruction AllStars undermines some of its more novel ideas way too often.
The arenas themselves, though in short supply, are grandiose and eye-catching...
This brings me to one of the most disappointing aspects of Destruction AllStars: its microtransactions.
