Excerpt: Not a lot needs to be said about Burnout 3, only that it was a huge departure from the two games that came before it and that it was an absolute dream to play. Criterion certainly had their work cutout in creating a follow up to silence Burnout 3’s heated engine, but Revenge shockingly manages to do this and almost makes Burnout 3 seem like a 7/10 in comparison. Yes, it’s that’s good!
Excerpt: EA, the industry's biggest publisher, isn't exactly thought of favourably by the so called 'hardcore' gamers. Destined to hate them forever, these people hang around internet forums determined to dismiss each and every EA release as a rehash, cash-in, movie license, yearly update or worse.

Excerpt: Burnout games have always featured great visuals, from the car models to the environment to, most notably, the explosions and damage. Burnout: Revenge continues this legacy, bringing visuals that are even better than the previous Burnout games, with three times the deformation damage to vehicles, all new cars in three different classes (Race, Muscle and Crash), and beautiful areas inspired by real-world locations from three continents.

Excerpt: The Burnout series has done for arcade racing what Mortal Kombat did for the fighting genre: it reinvented it and added a few new twists. Burnout 3 was a true realization of the series and propelled Burnout to become one of the greatest franchises around today. It was a game that rewarded aggressive and dirty driving with non-stop thrills, an insane sense of speed, and some of the most insane crashes you’ve ever seen.
