Excerpt: Burnout: Legends takes the previous release of the Burnout line ( Burnout 3: Takedown ) and puts it in the palm of your hands. But this isn’t just a portable version of Takedown , with gameplay modes like Road Rage (found in Burnout: Revenge ). Legends is more like Burnout 3.5. Legends ’ visuals look good on the small, bright screen.
Excerpt: Burnout is coming at us on multiple fronts this year. Not only is there Burnout Revenge on PlayStation 2 and Xbox, there's also Burnout Legends on the PSP. Seeing as every other game on the PSP seems to be a racer of some sort, another one to add to the collection might not seem all that appealing, but Legends might just be the racing title to own on the PSP this year. There's nothing new in Burnout Legends.
Excerpt: It all began in 2001 on the PS2. As if from nowhere, along came a game which shunned glossy graphics and licensed car manufacturers in favour of high speed, sweaty-handed, twitchy arcade race action. Developed by Criterion and published by Acclaim, Burnout had an intensity unmatched at the time, and required total concentration to play, and was so involving that you found yourself unable to blink and breathe in as you zipped through gaps in traffic.
