Summary: The controls are sluggish and the game gets boring after a while. Played it a couple days and is now a dust collector. My son did not like it as he is used to GTA5 and this game doesn't compare well.

Summary: I purchased this game with thoughts that it would be like the old Burnout games where I could duke it out with someone at my house...unfortunately, there is no dual screen multiplayer...other than that, the game is good. Not a bad game to spend some time crashing and dashing.
Summary: So overall this is one of my all time favorite games. I have no issues with the game. I only take issue with the fact that the picture shown, which is of the original non greatest hits copy, is actually not what I was sent. I was sent the red label copy (greatest hits).

Summary: I bought this game back in 2008 right after I got a PS3. It was the first open world racing game I had ever played and I have so many fond memories of this game.

Even my wife will play a pseudo mode in this game called "Showtime" just to see how many busses she can crash into.
Summary: These days games are a lot more focussed on the graphics and the physics engine and all the other stuff but usually overlook a very important aspect - fun. But burnout is an exception, car controls are very easy and the game focuses purely around enjoyability. I have a 10 year old nephew who hadn't played racing games on consoles before and he was able to drive the car without too many issues and he loved the game.
