Destruction Derby 2 is a vehicular combat racing video game developed by Reflections Interactive and published by Psygnosis for Microsoft Windows and PlayStation.

Game overview[edit]

Destruction Derby 2 is the sequel to the MS-DOS, PlayStation, Sega Saturn and Nintendo 64 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. Commentator Paul Page performed as the announcer.

Music[edit]

The soundtrack for the game was mostly performed by the unsigned Thrash metal band Jug (of Sunderland, UK) and Tuscan. Four of Jug's songs are available with vocals on their Myspace profile. The intro music was produced by Mike Clarke.
