Wreckfest is a great game, it may have taken years to finally get here and it may have taken a wrong turn or two along the way. But despite its wonky journey, good decisions were ultimately made that set the game back on course and it has since developed a decent following. Indeed, it is a game I haven’t had a whole lot of time to invest into, that will no doubt change in the future.
