  1. It doesn't matter how good the rest of a game is, though, if the controls betray you just when you need them most. [May 2007, p.55]

    INCREDIBLE! SO AWESOME that did and will always be part of my childhood! EPIC I thought those graphics, and when I was speeding, and gained more and more Nitro Boost and the race. And when you hit on something?? I kept BEAT IN EVERY THING I was CRAZY WITH THAT REALISM OF DAMAGE!! Simply, I think, that car crash is MUCH MORE REALISTIC than GTA IV! Yes, I think much more realistic than GTA IV!! Nothing more to say Full Review »

    I actually liked Burnout Dominator for the PS2 better than Burnout 3: Takedown. This is coming from a guy who beat both games getting gold in every single event.

    Why I give Dominator my pick as favorite is because of it's new mode (the name skips my head since i beat it 3 years ago, could even be called "dominator" haha) where if good you can remain in boost an entire race. Nothing was more fun for me than mastering a track, and avoiding obstacles at high boost speeds, though yes there were many moments where I felt like throwing the controller at the TV.

    This game brings a lot of the fun you usually expect from a member of the Burnout series, but is seriously lacking in a lot of respects. My main gripe is with the learning curve, which is fine for the first half of the main mode. Unfortunately towards the end of the game the challenges get terribly frustrating. It feels like because they only got round to producing 5/6 tracks they had to stretch the game out by giving incredibly difficult challenges. Full Review »
