Summary: this is an awful racing game. it's not even a matter of this game being a relic from 2001, as there are plenty of even older racing games that have stood the test of time. the fundamental gameplay is really frustrating and generally bland, and the jagged graphics make it really difficult to gauge what you're approaching, which is a major issue considering that you are rewarded by driving recklessly against dense traffic.
Summary: This game was a little disappointing for my because I played Burnout 3 first and was expecting something like that. There's nothing like it but it is still a good first game to play in the series.
Summary: I ordered a copy of Burnout which was labeled as being in "new" condition. When I got the game and opened it, the disk was horribly scratched, and when I tried to play it wouldn't even get past the first loading screen.
Summary: I bought this as a Christmas present for my brother. We used to play it all the time as kids but he got rid of it for some reason and then wished he hadn't. It works great and he was happy to have it again.
Summary: I'm glad I bought this and for real cheap too. I bought this because I needed a better more complete copy of the game, because my original copy had a generic GameStop cover on it. I am immensely satsified with my purchase and would definitely buy from them again in the future.
Summary: Burnout is a great game but you're not actually destroying cars like if you crash into the car, the money is for dameage unlike the points you get. If you want a really exciting and crushing cars game, you should either get Burnout 3 or Burnout Revenge.
Summary: The object of this game is to race through busy streets, driving as recklessly as you can. The more dangerous the driving (near-misses, driving on the wrong side of the road, skidding..etc.), the more your Turbo builds up. Once you get Full turbo, you can get up to speeds over 160 mph. But if you crash, your Turbo goes all the way down. You race against three other CPU (Computer Controlled) players, the first to the finish line wins. Usually there are 3 laps.
Summary: I played this game on my sister's Gamecube and loved it so much that I bought it for my PS2. The graphics were awesome and the realism of the crashes were better than any of the Need For Speed games. I can't wait to try Burnout 2: Point of Impact...I am sure it will be even better than this one! For the price, this is definately worth buying, just for the open ended playing.
