Destruction Derby 2 is a game released in 1996 for the Sony PlayStation and PC, developed by Reflections Interactive. A version for the Sega Saturn was also planned and developed, but never released.
Destruction Derby 2 is the sequel to the Sega Saturn, PlayStation and PC title, Destruction Derby
. Here the player must race on up to seven different circuits, in a range of modes, similar to its predecessor. The modes are Wrecking Racing (where the player must destroy or spin the other competitors), Stock Car (a typical race where it's 1st to the flag) and Destruction Derby, which is based around the crash arenas (more below).
Commentator Paul Page
performed as the announcer, shouting small phrases during moments of impact, such as; "Yeah!!" and "Go easy on the paintwork!" etc.
Destruction Derby 2 was added to the PlayStation Platinum range
in 1997. Originally the game was released in a double-CD cover (even though the game was only on one CD), but the platinum range version was released in an ordinary PlayStation cover.
