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.
Summary: Maybe I'm an exception but people who say that good reviews for this game must have no experience of other driving games are seriously wrong. Having got 96 point something percent through GT3 and completed all the main missions in GTA3 I bought Burnout on a recommendation from a friend.
Summary: This is a fast-paced arcade style game (anyone remember Cruisin'???). Sure, if you want ultra realistic car tuning, go elsewhere, but if you're looking for all-out racing through populated streets this is it.
Summary: I liked this game. It has awesome graphics, they look like the real thing on replays. I was watching a replay of one of my races and my dad walked in. He thought I was watching tv! The sound is good. There are a few reasons why I only gave it four stars.
Summary: I really liked BURNOUT, especially the graphics. But the fact that you're always timed and rushing to the next checkpoint, it's like you never get enough time to even play. Before you get into it, your time runs out. On the other side, that game is pretty fun.
Summary: The physics simulator that creates the car crashes is very realistic giving the game a look and feel that is totally authentic. The controls can be learned rapidly, there is no training session, and the championships are challenging without being too hard.
Summary: Visually, Burnout is a superb looking title with solid visuals. They are next-generation worthy that's for sure, as they feature excellent vehicular detail and great environmental detail. The cars are very well detailed.
Summary: The game's not as great as advertised (of course, nothing ever is), but it's better than most. The damage to your car is visible and affects it's performance, unlike some other games where the manufacturer like their cars to remain pristine following three car pileups (cough*GT3*cough).
Summary: My 1st racing game for the PS2 and I have to say i'm impressed. Granted the graphics are a little blocky in parts, but if you switch to driver's view it is very fast and you get a real sense of speed.
Summary: Lets get one thing straight, I wasn't someone who was bothered about racing games. When I got the demo of a rally game with my PS2 I spent most of the time trying to drive off cliffs or smash up my car. I read a couple of reviews of Burnout and just thought, yeah looks alright.
