    The 360 version of Revenge has spoiled me forever. What's the deal with not being able to check traffic in Dominator? A very rude surprise indeed, the first time I tried a traffic-check takedown. Dominator will probably be welcomed by those without a next-gen console, but everyone else should wait for Burnout 5.

    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 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. Expand

    This is more of the same game. I feel like the controls or cars were simplified for the PSP although it may not be true. Burnout 3:Take Down is a better game with better graphics (because its PS2). There are times when I can't really say a game has something wrong with it, but I can't outright recommend it either. The first level has a lot of un-skippable cut scenes and interruptingThis is more of the same game. I feel like the controls or cars were simplified for the PSP although it may not be true.

The first level has a lot of un-skippable cut scenes and interrupting dialogue boxes. I'd rather play this series on a big TV than on PSP. The presentation of the game doesn't make it feel much different. Expand

    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!

    Another cracking Burnout. It isn't for the weak-hearted because of the difficulty at later levels, but when it shines, oh boy, it dazzles. [Mar 2007, p.96]

    Best thought of as a "Greatest Hits, but Not All of Them" from the Burnout series. The racing is just as adrenaline pumping as it's ever been...However, the lack of standard features and modes like online play and Crash are a rather big disappointment.

    Even with the lack of a Crash mode and no online play, Burnout Dominator is a wise investment, even for the Burnout first-timer, especially with a $40 price tag.
