  • Summary: Burnout 2 is without a doubt the best racing game on the GameCube - It's everything B1 wasn't and more. This version improves every aspect of the PS2 version with more crash junctions, better graphics, lighting effects, more polygons, better texture resolution and anti-aliasing. It's also good to see Dolby Pro Logic II, 60Hz and Widescreen included.

  • Summary: The original Burnout title was praised for its amazing graphics and Burnout 2 pushes the technology even further. Other improvements are tighter handling, better crash deformations, new game structure, enhanced physics, new replay system and more make this one of the most intense driving games ever. Burnout 2: Point of Impact builds upon a strong speed-driven franchise with vastly improved game play, new game options and bigger, better and more insane crashes.

Burnout 2: Point of Impact

Game Vortex
2 September 2003
  • Excerpt: Burnout , originally an arcade game racer, had one feature that separated it from the rest of the racing genre -- it was not afraid of crashing. In fact, it featured perhaps the most indisputably outlandish and powerful crashes ever seen in a game. Nevertheless, the title was still a mediocre race title. But that single aspect of massive domino effect crashes kept Burnout in the minds of racing fans.

The Next Level

  • Excerpt: The developers at Criterion Games are obviously very proud of their physics engine and its amazing ability to realistically simulate twenty-car pile-ups. While watching the replays, it's very easy to imagine these events happening on a highway near you. Tires and bumpers fly, windows smash, and eighteen-wheelers T-bone in super-detailed slow motion often resulting in huge piles of smashed steel. Impressive stuff - the first twenty times you see it.

  • Conclusion: Burnout 2 ist ein Rennspielkracher, den jeder Fan dieses Genres besitzen sollte. Es ist beeindruckend, was Criterion Games aus dem GameCube geholt hat. Bleibt nur zu hoffen, dass die Spieler unterscheiden können, dass ein „Near-Miss“ im realen Leben mit etwas anderen Punkten belohnt wird...
  • Pros: Geniale Grafik, Saubere Steuerung, Macht süchtig
  • Cons: Keine lizensierten Fahrzeuge, Kein richtiges Intro

Burnout 2 : point of impact, le test

Nintendo
1 January 2004
  • Summary: Prenez toutes les qualités du 1, améliorer la réalisation et les sensations et vous obtiendrez ce Burnout 2 particulièrement attachant. Il est vrai que la durée de vie est assez courte et que le concept peut paraître répétif à la longue mais Burnout 2 est fun et c'est l'essentiel. A noter qu'un troisième volet et d'ores et déjà en préparation et on parle de plus en plus d'un mode online.
