    High speed, low learning curve, great physics, beautiful sets, 14 courses, a good amount of replay value (if you like racing games to begin with). What's not to like?

    Everything is good about this game I love it. It is a real fun game. The effects of crashing into other cars seems real.

    The graphics on this game are stunning! Also, the crashes are the best in the business because of it telling you the insurance sum. IT ROCKS!

    Still great to play today: frantic arcade racing action coupled with a brilliant risk/reward boost system. Intense and addictive, only let down by rubberband AI.

    A very intense experience. [May 2002, p.131]
  2. One of the most solid, fast, and fun arcade racers I've had the pleasure of playing.

    Burnout is not flawless, but its few drawbacks (the short time limits, strict boundaries and lack of length) matter little in the end. Its wicked gameplay dominates the experience making Burnout a must play, even if you're not a fan of the genre.
