Conclusion: Burnout 2 has been out for six months on the PS2 and it has finally arrived on the Xbox. In this review, I am going to start of with some negative comments. This is intentional so that I could close on the positive note that "Burnout 2" deserves. Despite the Xbox exclusive "Developers Cut" moniker on the package, the extras are mostly superficial. 480P support is mute because the textures are low resolution and all the backgrounds are full of jaggies.
Excerpt: "...you haven't heard about the Burnout franchise, where have you been? Burnout 2 is the second in the series, now surpassed by two console games and the PSP handheld version, but it's still worth a look. Firstly, theres only one way of describing Burnout 2. Its fast, most pant-wettingly fast, it's faster than a speeding jet tied to a huge rocket. Get the picture? In fact, Burnout 2 is right to sell itself on being this fast because it is such a ...
Pros: Fast, lovely crashes, cheap as chips
Cons: old compared to the newer games in the series
Excerpt: "...fan of racing games, so Burnout 2 isn't alone on my shelf. But by doing this review, I'll attempt to answer the question my wife asked when I bought the game - "Why do you need another racing game?" Well, it's simple really. All my racing games offer something different. At one end, we have the hardcore simulation games, like Colin McRae Rally 4. And then at the other end, we have Burnout 2. Burnout 2 is an arcade racer through and through. ...
Summary: Of all the games I have for the Xbox, this is the one that sits in the drive for the longest. It is fantastically addictive, easy to play (although not so easy as to make it boring). The cars are well modelled and great fun to drive. I used to think Project Gotham was a great arcade racer until I played Burnout. The concept is simple and well executed. Drive dangerously in order to win burnout points in order to drive dangerously at a greater speed... simple!
Excerpt: "...much easier than the original Burnout and the 'Crash Juntion' mode to be boring and very repetative. Nevertheless you simply cannot go wrong with this title that will keep you occupied for hours and hours on end and although its not Gran Turismo it a hell of lot of fun and recomend it to all Racing title fans. ...
Pros: Detailed Crashes, Better Graphics, New Crash Junctions, Easier Handling, Best Arcade Racer To Date .
Cons: No Online Gameplay, Not So Helpful Tutorial, Can Be Frustrating .
Summary: I wonder what the newspapers would have said 10 years ago if an arcade game about multi-car pile-ups had been released. Burnout 2 starts you off slowly with six 'Learn to drive badly' courses; your new (or perhaps not so new ;o) skills are soon put to test when the main game modes are unlocked.
Summary: C jeux est terrible, je ne le considère pas comment un jeux de voiture de course, biensur il y en à, mais ce qui m'à le plus branché c'est crash... Trop bien fait, j'ai avantout essayé le jeux sur PS2, tres bien, rien à redire. Mais quand je l'ai essayé sur Xbox, j'ai trouvé personnellement qu'il déchirait tout. Au niveau graphisme, c'est bien fait et les voitures proposées sont sympa.
