The champion Death Racer wins freedom in this "trial by fire" racing game. It's literally a race of life or death. After winning the first Death Racer championship, the Butcher is back to defend his title—but of course, there are no guarantees. Pick the criminal character you want to race as; there are plenty of dangerous ex-mafia bosses, hitmen, and murderers to choose from. Just remember that the road to victory is about both speed and smarts. Sometimes you'll have to push the pedal to the metal...but other times it's best to hang out at the back of the pack, letting the other cars duke it out and destroy themselves.
