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.

Best Crashes Ever.

  • 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.

Pretty Good

  • 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.

Look out Grand Turismo

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: "Burnout 2 (PS2) 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 ...
  • Pros: Great gameplay, speed, and graphics
  • Cons: Slow in multiplayer, and frustrating

Burnout 2 the game which puts the word speed in a car!

  • Summary: Burnout 2 is better and faster than burnout 1. It still contains the same basic controls, but this time there is better crashes and better levels to race. The only thing that brings the game down is that you have to unlock the levels and if you are not a good racer it takes a lot of time to complete the game.

Pretty darn good

  • Summary: There's plenty of good things about this game. First and foremost it lets you get straight to the action with minimal fuss- the game loads quickly and to surf between the vehicle options and courses is a doddle. Secondly, it offers a real illusion of speed- edge of your seat type action. OK, the handling of the cars isn't a patch on GT3, but then again this is an arcade racer rather than a driving simulator.

  • Excerpt: "Burnout is all about taking risks, risks that provide the vital line between success or failure and sometimes driving closer to the danger will prove a risk worth taking in order to shave seconds off your best times, but if there’s one thing that could be said about the original Burnout, is that it was fast. Eye-bleedingly fast, in fact. So fast, that one quick glance away from the screen could lead to your vehicle slamming into the side of ...
  • Pros: Bigger, better and more addictive than the original
