Professional Review

BeamNG.drive is a realistic driving simulator that is available on PC. In this game you will be not only a racer, but also a destructor. You can download BeamNG.drive though it’s in early access.

Graphics: 4

Graphics is rather simple, but very realistic. Based on Torgue 3D, it gives pretty good picture with decent animation. There are also many details: even in passenger compartment you’ll see a lot of objects.

In our BeamNG.drive Review we want to say that you will definitely be impressed by effects of destruction, showing you realistic collision, broken glass and lots of smithereens. Also, there is perfectly released physics of soft bodies which seems to be very lifelike.

Gameplay: 4

In BeamNG.drive you haven’t got any restrictions. There is no storyline, but you will have complete freedom: it’s possible to go wherever you want and do anything. You’ll be able to choose various cars and try them on various tracks.

Your main task will be breaking of iron horses, pushing them into various stones, trees and buildings. Model of damage is very realistic in this game. All collisions of your car with any obstacles will significantly affect either external or  internal auto’s condition.

The most valuable thing about BeamNG.Drive is that you can simulate anything: from the map with obstacles to the vehicle itself. This freedom of action was first given to the players in such kind of genre. Due to the built-in level editor, you can add absolutely any objects to the game map, arrange them in any order, set the behavior pattern of the "NPC transport" (pursuer or fugitive). The simulator offers both competitions with a computer on the tracks and cars chosen by the player, as well as single tests.

Controls: 5

Management in BeamNG.drive is also realistic, so the car can be spinned if the road is covered with ice or the asphalt is wet. The car is sensitive to traces’ irregularities – it shakes on the bumps, and even turns over.

The player may drive car either in third-person or in first-person mode. Accidents can be viewed from different angles – there are cameras and special functions that allow you to stop the moment and capture a spectacular screenshot.

Replay Value: 4

Replay value in this game can be called rather high. There is available a big number of different autos’ models. Also, there is a large variety of actions that may be applied to the vehicles. If you are bored of racing, you may conduct a crush test, throwing stones on the car, pushing it down from the rocks, etc. Therewith, the developers try to make new modifications in the game and release upgrades.

The Bottom Line

As a result, there emerges a promising tendency: the game looks better, crashes become more realistic with each update. There are many driving simulators, but this project is one of a kind. It gives you a great possibility to test your car to the limit. Also, there is a great chance to work with maps’ settings. If you are a big fan of automobiles, you definitely should download BeamNG.drive and try it.



All in all, this game will allow you to experiment with different cars and maps. In BeamNG.drive you can also see various kinds of destruction, and that’s why you should try this project.

Pros : Realistic physics;
Complete freedom;
Variety of modifications.
