Summary: Do you like recklessly speeding through traffic and barely avoiding other vehicles? If so, then this is the game for you! Burnout is a series known for it's high-speed racing and brutal crashes. The racing itself is pretty fun. Barely avoiding 18-wheelers, traveling on the wrong side of the road, drifting around sharp turns, that's what you do in Burnout. You do these things to fill up your boost meter. Once filled up, take off! The crashes are great!
Summary: This game wasn't half bad, but There are not much cars too choose from. The races are fun but they are also really long and very hard, same thing with the face offs. It can be really fun to weave in and out of traffic without trying to crash. overall a good racing game that you should check out.
Excerpt: "Burnout is very good in my point of view. You can win championships and earn extra cars and tracks. You can even choose what colour your car is in. Some of the championship races are very hard but if you keep practicing you will find them easier. When you complete a championship you unlock tracks and races. These races give you the chance to win cars. Multiplayer can be fun because it is very competitive. Driving at incredible speeds through traffic ...
Excerpt: "Burnout is a fast paced, exciting feature rich game, but even that said and done it’s not as it could have been. Having recently bought a Gamecube I decided to go out and buy some games, one of which was Burnout, as I started it up with a fairly average loading time of about 5seconds I was already amazed by the graphics!!! So as most people would I went straight into the game. Choose my car and its colour and straight away raced away, I COULDN’T ...
Pros: Great Graphics, Great Gameplay, Brilliant Sound effects and mostly GREAT CRASHES ! !
Summary: Burnout is an excellent game with great graphics. The game play is smooth and the music and sound effects are wicked. The only bad thing about burnout is the lack of tracks, but each track is really long. To start off with there are only 5 cars but you can unlock a few different ones when you complete a certain amount of tracks. The great thing about burnout is the crash replays.
Summary: This is a great game, and I certainly enjoy playing it. I would certainly recommend it to anybody looking for a racing game. The graphics whilst not as good as GT3 as some others have mentioned are nontheless well done and this is one of the most playable games I've come across so far (and I haven't even tried playing against someone else yet). That said, there are a few things I feel are missing.
Summary: This is the best racer on the Gamecube so sar (not many I know!). The graphice are very smooth and realistic and the car crash replays are amazin, pictures do this game no justice!. It is really fast and if you lose concentration for just 1 second then - smash!! So don't go looking at the scenery!! A must for all racing fans.
Summary: Having owned a SNES, N64, PS, DC & PS2 at various times in the past, I was quite interested to see what the GC offered in terms of racing games. Nothing has come close to Mario Kart on the SNES in terms of multiplayer fun, and graphically the best game is GT3. Well, a contender to both the multiplayer and graphical racing title has to be Burnout.
Summary: I have bought all the major games for the GC and this is definitely the most addictive! It is very easy to get into and the speed is fantastic! Your heart will be racing as you are doing 150mph into oncoming traffic trying not to crash! Speaking of crashes they are so realistic and spectacular you want to crash sometimes! This game rewards you for risks by giving you faster speed - don't try to copy it in real life!
Summary: If driving the wrong side of the road turns you on - get this baby! Hot and hard, this game will keep you happy until Nintendo get their "killer aps" out. The graphics are pretty good - look out for the cell shading, as this simple technique makes all the cars - and the 300 or so other road users- look "the biz". The multiplayer is good fun and well worth getting an extra controller in for, as driving a bus into a friend has never been so fun.
