Critics Consensus (Play It)

Pacific Drive has captured the attention of critics with its captivating atmosphere, intriguing setting, and the unique blend of driving and survival gameplay. Although the game’s challenging nature and potential for repetitive gameplay segments have raised some concerns, the core experience of upgrading your trusty vehicle and exploring the mysteries of the Zone has been broadly praised.

Game Info

5/10

An intriguing set-up, with an impressively ominous atmosphere, is spoilt by overfamiliar roguelike elements that ruin the pacing and increase the repetition.

8/10

Ironwood Studio’s debut is a challenging roguelite caRPG rich in atmosphere, complexity, and fascinating lore.

4/5

A punishing, exhasperating slog, or an off-beat love story between driver and car, human and the Zone? Pacific Drive is both and then some.
