Wreckfest is the best demolition derby game ever. This is not your apologetic vodka ginger on a warm summer day. No, this is not the turbulent misery of a Fireball shot. No sir. This not Flatout or Burnout. This is Wreckfest, and it’s your smooth, refined whiskey soda meant to tickle the visceral notes of your palate.
