    Terrible graphics, watered-down gameplay, pathetic crashes, and collision problems and glitches make this the worst Burnout in the series. The new game mode 'Pursuit' is nothing more than Road Rage with only one opponent. And Single-Card multiplayer is seriously boring, as there is no traffic or AI and you can only race on one track. The music in the game is tolerable but very limited. Reviewer "Mike S." says it all. I'm returning this and buying Mario Kart. Collapse

    The only positive that can be said about this game: at least it runs at 60 frames per second. We’ve played some bad racing games, but Burnout Legends takes the cake. Really.

    Then we come to the control, which is also shot up quite horrendously. The vehicular turning is pretty lofty at best, where you have to maintain an incredible sense of steering. This, combined with the so-called tactics for scoring takedowns on opponent vehicles, just leads to remarkably bad frustration.
  3. The racing is pathetically underwhelming, the crashes are so painfully halfhearted that they might as well not even exist, and a wide variety of graphical glitches and collision problems turn the whole thing into a serious mess.
