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.
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.
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.
Summary: never quite received the attention that it deserved. Often times old-school gamers will whine and moan about the lack of true arcade racers yet when they finally receive one, they do everything in their power to avoid it.
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.
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...
