Excerpt: The graphics and sound in Burnout 3: Takedown are pretty good - and the music is great; EA’s ‘MTV-like’ music system that overlays information about each song when it begins playing works well with Burnout 3 , as do the hard-hitting and fast paced songs that were included.
Summary: Taking expectations for racing titles to
the next level, Criterion and EA's Burnout 3: Takedown is an amazing experience
from both a gameplay and a technological standpoint. This intensely fast racer
lets players loose in some of the most intense and fastest driving ever
Excerpt: Ever since its debut in 2001, the Burnout series has spawned a cult following of gamers who find pleasure in unleashing hell on the roads and against their opponents. Though road rage isn't the only key segment that's made Burnout such a hit with many; it's also the eye-candy.
Excerpt: So much to do, so little time. Burnout has taken over almost every little inch of free time that I have had so far this week. I could barely find time to write this review... which may well a better comment about the game than anything else that I write here.
Conclusion: Burnout 3 is really lacking in the songs department. Punk music just doesn’t feel right, it shouldn’t be in a racing game period. Learning about our “lazy generation” or hearing a guy complained that he’s “not okay” just makes you want to turn the volume down.
