The Destruction Derby format climaxed on the PS2, and was beginning to show its age after it first debuted back in 1995. To counter this, Studio 33 attempted to freshen things up a bit by introducing a new more slapstick, cartoony vibe with colourful visuals, stereotypically crafted individual drivers and power ups. As a result, the depicted cars looked like that of toy cars, and the destruction felt toned down, particularly with the damage model which was somewhat basic. The racing action also felt much more slow although it actually made the game feet more refined. However, where Destruction Derby Arenas comes more into its own can be found within the track design, which is simply fantastic, particularly the arenas themselves which sometimes featured hazardous disappearing areas. Despite the gloss, the game still felt like familiar territory of smashing cars into submission - and there is noting wrong with that for car crash addicts like myself.

Destruction Derby Arenas is also notable for being one of the first online PS2 games, and was a joy to play with support for up to an impressive 20 players.

After my love of DD2, this was rather disappointing. I didn't like the addition of the power-ups and the commentary was... bleh

Trailer and back of the box talk about car customization (a "Car Parts" menu) but I never found it. Did it make it in the final release?
