Burnout 2

Playstation Illustrated
17 November 2003
  • Excerpt: I used to have this dream of the perfect driving game. It basically involved driving around in a car, going through traffic, and everything was realistic. I mean, everything looked real. The realism of an 8 year-old kid (that's about where I was at the time) driving a car on a busy freeway would probably look more like Burnout 2 . If you liked the freewheeling mayhem of the original Burnout, Burnout 2 is just more of the good stuff we loved last year.

Game Over Online

  • Excerpt: Criterion Studios has come a long way in the past few years in regards to actually developing videogames. They haven’t released a whole lot of titles so far, choosing rather to merely assist in development via their well-known Renderware engine, but of the titles they have developed, one thing is for sure: they have gotten progressively better. But nothing could prepare this reviewer for what they had in store with Burnout 2.

  • Excerpt: as well. Here's the thing, though, and it's something I merely touched on in both of those reviews: most people look at the game and see it as a simple arcade racer, which it really isn't. Sure, it like an arcade racer, and it sure as hell feels like one, but hidden underneath is something very sneaky, very seductive, and very, very addictive. Burnout, and even more so with the sequel, is a gamble.

  • Excerpt: When you went to Driver's Ed, they put an emphasis on driving safely; observing speed limits, checking your mirror before changing lanes, and making sure you weren't being some sort of showoff daredevil passing cars within inches of clipping them. Enter Burnout 2: Point of Impact, Acclaim's follow-up to their moderately successful arcade-style racer.

  • Excerpt: Acclaim has given us the sequel to their cult-fave arcade style racer, and Burnout 2: Point of Impact is everything we wanted it to be. Better graphics, more tracks, more vehicles, and more gameplay modes make it a must-have title for any racing fan, and a must-try title for gamers in general. Click here for the review.

The Next Level
15 October 2002
  • Excerpt: For those who did not get to experience the original, Burnout is a traditional racing game ripped off typical lifeless tracks and placed on busy streets filled with traffic. The goal of making it to the finish line goes hand-in-hand with avoiding other cars, as crashing is obviously detrimental to survival. Thing is, simply driving on the right side of the street and hanging out of harm's way won't net you first place every time.

  • Conclusion: B2 is simply the finest arcade racer for years. It might not suit every serious suspension-tweaking, gear ratio adjusting Gran Turismo or Colin McRae fan, but the sheer speed, the impressively chaotic crashes and the immense fun factor will win even the most selective racing fan over in the end. A truly excellent sequel, and a great game in its own right.
