  • 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.

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.

  • 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

  • Summary: Spieleinfos Entwickler: Criterion Studios Publisher: Acclaim Spieleranzahl: 1-2 Genre: Rennspiel Was tut man nicht alles für seine Leser, um sie mit aktuellen Spiele-Tests zu versorgen. Nebenbei erhofft man sich selbst natürlich auch auf ein bisschen Support seitens der Hersteller, die einen mit Test-Exemplaren versorgen könnten. Doch dies scheint nur die Ausnahme darzustellen, so auch bei Acclaim, welche sich auf eine Anfrage hin garnicht mehr meldeten.
  • Pros: schicke Grafik... , schnell , dröhnender Sound
  • Cons: ...die aber auf der PS2 besser aussieht , Musik belanglos
