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: I was pulled over once. In my town, at the intersection of two roads, a giant bump exists. If you hit this bump at about thirty miles-per-hour, you get a weird feeling in your belly. When you hit it at fifty mph, your car goes into the air a little bit. I don’t know what happens when you hit it at seventy-five mph because when I was trying to get up to speed I got pulled over by the man. He clocked me at fifty mph in a thirty mph zone.
Conclusion: With 175 events (100 crash, 75 race), there's enough here to entertain for weeks. Part of the problem, though, is that most will have burned out (hurr, punny) on the experience before the game's through. It's a fine racer, just not quite classic Burnout.
Conclusion: Legends is a fairly long game. It should take about 20 hours to complete. However, since this is basically the same game we all played last year, players might get tired fast. There are some nice multiplayer modes, but overall, Legends doesn’t present many new additions to warrant a high replay score. Well there you have it folks. Legends is yet another solid entry into the Burnout series.
Conclusion: Along with the vast World Tour mode, you of course have single player events, like Crash Mode, Single Race etc, and you also have wifi multiplayer. Up to 4 people can race together, and it works well. There is no shoddy EA online service to mess things up for you on the PSP (as it did with Burnout 3 on Xbox Live), so it’s much more stable. The game supports Game Sharing too, meaning four people can play with only one copy of the game.
Pros: It’s a full-on Burnout game for PSP, All the modes are in, Multiplayer is great
Cons: Game sharing load times are a joke, You might hate that music
