Excerpt: Burnout 2 Point of Impact on GameCube. This game supports 2 players in simultaneous gameplay, requires 5 blocks of memory card space and suports 60hz screen display. Purchase. I got this game for under £3 including postage because nobody else bidded on it and I was shocked because it was in near mint condition and is not as freely available but who cares it was a steal in my eyes. First Impressions.
Pros: Lots of game modes and an easy game to play .
Summary: My previous review of this game was removed. I simply wanted to write a much shorter review on the greatest game of the current generation. Looking for a game to buy? STOP. Buy burnout 2. It is the most sense tingling metamorphisis extravaganza that is available currently. Ripping up the road on Big surf shores, two hundred plus burnouts, ultimate gaming experience. Forget burnout 3+4, the novices swarm around the plastic EA infected motorcars.
Excerpt: Burnout... who has played the original Burnout? well this game is so unlike the original game it's untrue. Burnout 2: Point of Impact takes place in the USA and is actually one of the most intense games that I have ever played on the Gamecube. Ride at speeds over 100mph (on the later cars) and plunge head first into a crash, then watch the debris fly. Drive dangerously to earn boosts to exceed the normal limits of the car and the road.
Pros: Intensive crashes, intense speed, cool cars it's got it all ! !
Cons: None, although not for people who like the "normal" racing games
Summary: Firstly one of the most important things about a racing game before you begin are the asthetics. They are great, the tracks cars and music is all top notch. One quibble i have with the cars is that it is not nessercary to use many that you unlock throughout the game as they have worse acceleration/speed than the one that you've already got. There are only about 4 tracks, but don't be put off by this.
Excerpt: Introduction *************** With burnout 3 not coming to the game cube, this is the best proper racing game available for Nintendo fans. The original burn game is out but I never have played this game. History ******** The burnout series first came to are shores in the early months of 2002. With the sequel coming out a year later, the burnout series are created by Acclaim.
Pros: fast furious and and a improvement from the orginal game .
Cons: the replaying of the crashes can become annoying .
Excerpt: *This is just a pre-cautionary warning to anyone who may not want to read about cars crashing* INTRODUCTION I have had a Nintendo Gamecube for around a year now. The very first game I ever bought for it, was this one 'Burnout 2 - Point of Impact'. I went for this for a couple of reasons. The first being that I love sport video games, especially racing. I had also played the original Burnout game on my friends Gamecube, so I knew that this game was likely to be very good.
Pros: Great gameplay, exciting and gets you on edge
Summary: Burnout 2 is a no-nonsense driving game. While others spend hours altering the cars ride height and suspension, fiddling with tyre pressure, getting the wing settings just right, all to go that 1 mph faster into the nearest wall and then blame the "rubbish settings", burnout 2 does not. It gives you a car, you go racing. It is a crying shame the hype surrounds Gran Tourismo 3, rather than my choice, the frankly to good to be legal looking Burnout 3.
Summary: For many, the daddy of all driving games on any format was torn between Gran Turismo and Ridge Racer, i preferred the former rather than the latter. However, theres a new kid in town and its called Burnout2 - Point Of Impact! This game is so annoyingly addictive that marriages will fail and kids may starve for a few days when dad/mum get their hands on this.
Summary: After reading the above reviews, and buying the game, I cannot believe what people have written here. I can only assume that EA Sport's marketing team logged in and wrote those reviews. The game has so much lacking in 'Gameplay' (remember that, anyone) and just overloads on the graphics. Sure the graphics are awesome, and mostly the driving physics of the cars is good, altho every car seems to drive the same, have the same handling etc.
