Summary: Burnout 2 is a great game, and it improves on everything the first one did, and is just a little better. The graphics are improved and you can see farther in the game (can't remember the technical term for that) so it makes going fast much cooler so you can see way ahead to know where you're going. They kept the turbo meter, which works well in this one too, and have a good selection of cars.
The 50 bucks is the worth watching the crashes alone!!

Summary: Great game. The crashes are realistically errie. The slow motion captures the horror & destruction of the crash. Great damage detail. The graphics are great. The speed of the cars are great. The way to get boost by doing dangerous stunts is also fun. So why did I give it 4 stars. Hmm...Not sure. Theres just somthing about the game that troubles me. I only played it a few times so my initial rating & opinion might change.
Summary: While I'm not too crazy about the racing, the crashing mode on this game is too die for. It has the greatest crashes ever seen with no invisible walls, so you can fly over the mountain if you crash hard enough. Plus you can cause multi car pile ups and it says how much money was lost in the accident. One of the best games available on the PS2.
Summary: I just got this game yesterday and it is almost perfect but it can get really annoying when it takes so long to load the games. It is good because you have a scence that you are in the car and you want really drive the car. The one things that they could do to improve Burnout 2 is to use brand-name cars. Instead, they use things like "Roadster" or "Hot Rod". Even what I don't understand is how they came up with the name "Oval Racer". It looks just like a Nascar Race car.
Excerpt: Burnout 2 is a racing game developed by Criterion games for the Playstation 2 Burnout 2 has an expanded championship career mode this time around featuring more different event types for you to play as well as the standard races, you are still usually taking on the masses in tournaments involving multiple race events where you must consistently perform to unlock the next.
Excerpt: **Introduction** Anyone who knows me would tell you that my gaming consists of mostly Football and Basketball sims and car racing games with a couple of fighter and strategy games mixed in. Burnout 2 Point of Impact is one of the racing games which I own on the Playstation 2 after buying it as part of a 4 for £20 deal in my local Gamestation store.
Excerpt: It's fair to say that Electronic Arts, more than any other gaming publisher, knows how to make the most of a good thing. With the exception of TimeSplitters, practically every successful franchise to have fallen under the EA umbrella has succumbed to the dreaded 'annual update' syndrome. In theory the upshot of this is that EA's high-production values are maintained and series' can build and improve in small increments.
Pros: Very fast, accessible and solid handling, good ideas, fun, multiplayer
Cons: Small qualms with the A . I . ,could have been a touch longer
Excerpt: Watch out burnout 2 comes crashing onto the playstation wow what a game Now for all off those initates to the burnout world burnout 2 is the second game in the burnout series. This a racing game with a huge twist. Not only must you do some extreme driving to keep up with the car infront you also have to drive insanely close to cars have as many near misses as you can and drive into on coming traffic. But I get ahead of myself.
Excerpt: Normally, I am not a great fan of driving/racing games, I find them all tedious, all the same, and generally I am not very good at them. I originally played this game on my friend's Xbox - and within a couple of weeks of playing it, I bought it myself for the PS2. This game is really rather good - if you are a young kid or non-driver, you should know that this game is encouraging you to drive dangerously, but the only difference is getting away with it without crashing.
Excerpt: [Review taken from my website - http://www.ps2-central.co.uk] Burnout 2: Point Of Impact is better than the original by loads of ways!! The first thing that beats the original is the graphics - the graphics are much more detailed and when the sun shines onto the road, it shines onto the road. Excellent detail. The crashes are excellent as the cars flip over more than the original game. Also the tracks are much much better than the original.
Pros: Great crashes, new modes, new vehicles, new tracks
