|Gaming Examiner Fireburst explodes onto the racing scene with an action packed arcade racer that should cater to fans of things that go ka-boom. If anything, the name of the title should pretty much inform you of everything you’ll need to know about this game. There are wacky characters, a variety of cars that are clearly made to destroy, some GORGEOUSLY rendered levels, and, well….a lot of fire, flames, and explosions. Read Full Review||80/100|
|Firelight Overall, I’d say the game is pretty decent. There’s room for improvement, but that’s never bad for a seemingly indie developer. Read Full Review||70/100|
|Dealspwn A sword, for example, is a tad mundane. But a flaming sword? That’s not getting junked any time soon. A zombie is just a shambling inconvenience to be summarily executed… but when wreathed in flames, they definitely deserve a screenshot. Plus, plain old regular hell pales in comparison to Diablo’s Burning Hells. Though this logic should never be applied to real life (unless you’re a pyrotechnician, stunt artist or are really bored), it stands to reason that adding copious amounts of fire to an arcade racing game should result in a superior experience.

|ComboCaster Lack of game modes and some gameplay issues hurts it’s final score. With some polish could be a fun game. Read Full Review||65/100|
|IGM On the outside, Fireburst is an extremely gorgeous game. The Unreal engine really works wonders, and the game’s design benefits from its performance. Environments, character models, car models — even the menu design — are pretty. Furthermore, in aesthetics, Fireburst outperforms a number of other indie titles I’ve played because it has an almost AAA polish and finish on it. Read Full Review||60/100|
