Summary: This is kind of a kids' game to me. Nothing particularly interesting going on, but still a nice sandbox style racing game similar to Midnight Club L.A. - driving is easy as pie, opponents are rubber banding around me in traditional racing game fashion, and stunt jumps are a dime a dozen. After a little while I lost interest, even though I had set out to at least jump through every billboard because I've always wanted an achievement for billboard destruction.
Summary: i was very dissapointed when found out that this is a one player game :( it wasnt very clear on the site. the previous games i've played have been really fun with a bunch of people racing together!
Summary: DONT BUY THIS EXPECTING ALL THE DLC TO BE ON DISK it isnt its just the crap that they couldnt make enough money on AND STILL I have to get the dlc just so my kid can race around the city in with me RIP OFF
Summary: I rented this game for a week and took it back early. Having a load of free trophies from this game sounded good on paper but was relatively painful after playing it for 2 days. Bad theme music and there is usually a lame announcer in the background. The trophies were nice and everything, but the game has pretty much no fun to it. After seeing a WRECKED crash scene a lot, it got aggravating.
Summary: This has to be the worst Burnout game I've ever played. The positives are they still have the takedowns and crash events. The graphics are also very good but that expected really in this age of gaming. I will say however, I am very disappointed that they have taken away the old arcade style menu. I really don't enjoy having to drive around just to find an event(race).

Summary: I was very disappointed to find you can't play this game in split screen two player mode like previous burnout games. Apart from that the graphics are great. Pity you can only use the multiplayer option online or you have to make do with some rather silly party games, Criterion please bring back the two player mode which you can actually play with someone in the same household!
Summary: If you take the fun part of Grand theft auto and the fun part of the old burnout on PS2, and toss that away. You end up with this very boring game. It's incredible how game design messed up on this game. Each time you crash your car, a very border line annoying camera shows you it from a weird angle, which makes the crashes so painful to watch.
Summary: I've loved the previous Burnout games and I loved quite a lot of this one the first time I played it through solo. The sandbox method of finding races (and having to drive back to the start to retry them) was pointless and annoying, though. I re-bought it recently to play with my flatmate and discovered they'd taken split-screen two player out of it as well.
Conclusion: Criterion Games have tried to innovate the series, and try something new, and make it fresh again. This game is a free roaming game (like Grand Theft Auto) and in my opinion it just doesn’t work, and just makes the game a chore to play. A number of online updates since the games release have made sure this is no longer a true ’Burnout’ game - the pointless introduction of bikes for example.
Summary: There are so many flaws in this game its a struggle to rembember them all. The Game seems to want you to crash, a few times before ive actually even hit an object or another car the stupid crash animation comes on (which lasts about 10 seconds)when sometimes the crash could've been avoided. In the previous Burnout's if you glanced against a car you would not crash but in this game if you even touch another car you immediately crash.
