Summary: I’ve played a few racing games in my time and when I saw this game for my new Xbox I thought it looked a really good buy from the description on the box. After playing the game for about 3-4 hours the expression “Don’t judge a book by its cover” comes to mind. It’s an arcade style game where you have to race your car through the hectic streets that are crowded with everyday traffic against other cars.
Summary: Well burnout is a great little game. Ok its no GT3 or PGR but it never set out to be that sort of game. Graphics are much better than the PS2 version. Gameplay reminds me of the Lotus series(on the Amiga). The idea is to get from A to B in 1st, while avoiding all the normal day traffic. Avoiding traffic on each part of the road makes you feel like being on a knife edge - sometimes you move pulls off others it doesn't. The Blur when you boost is quite novel too.
Summary: I purchased this believing the hype (much like the hype of many of the launch titles) that this was a class racing game. The game play is fast, very fast. This can be a letdown if you are looking for a car game with depth. Basically you keep your finger all the way down on the acceleration trigger and dodge the other cars. That is it. Don't get me wrong, for what it is it is very well made.
Summary: I have just got home with my copy of acclaims 'burnout' and it is fantastic, i was skeptically expecting it to be a unchanged ps2 version but it isn't, the makers have made a really good job of testing some of the xboxes fantastic potential. The graphics on this xbox version are extremely good and well textured and no blur which was one of the ps2 versions downfalls.
Burnout (Xbox): This opinion is written for the PS2 version of Burnout!

Summary: Well, it had to happen sometime. Here is the driving game that everyone who's ever suffered from road rage will want to own. This is the game that everyone who ever dreamed of joyriding will want to own. And for people who enjoy the odd bit of serious driving, well, there's something for you in here too.
