  • Summary: Burnout Revenge lets gamers rip through rush hour traffic and lay waste to scores of rubbernecking roadhogs in an over-the-top scene of vehicular mayhem. In addition to tricked out new race, crash and road rage modes, Burnout Revenge takes the series' blistering speed and spectacular destruction to dizzying new heights with an all-new Revenge mode, challenging gamers to battle the clock and unleash their frustrations on rush hour traffic.

  1. Faster-than-light and the best arcade racer in existence. [Jan 2007, p.106]
  2. Simply put, it's the best Burnout yet, and after four games, it's amazing that each one can consistently blow the previous entries away. Revenge does, and it is indeed sweet.
  3. Sure, taking out the fear of hitting some of the traffic makes the game less terrifying than past Burnout games, and the increased emphasis on taking out opposition rather than merely outracing them might be too much for some die-hards to handle, but as you get used to it, the magic is still there.

    It manages to exhaustively deliver everything that made "Burnout 3" so fantastic while adding small tweaks that make its predecessor an immediate item for trade-in at your local game store.
  5. Fantastic presentation, highly addictive intense gameplay and plenty to play – racing games just don’t get any better then this, make sure to check it out immediately.
  6. 90
    This is the fourth game in the series, and it's definitely the biggest, ballsiest, most nonsensical Burnout to date.
  7. It's overcooked and to slick, through redeemed by the sheer quantity of stuff you can do. [Dec p.90]

    Awesome with a capitol "A." I haven't played Burnouts 1 and 2, but Takedown was the only game I definitely like. But Revenge was way better than Takedown. I played the game for a whopping 3 hours long. The bad news is that the loading times are too damn awful because I'd still have to wait for the next levels until I see some lazy technical information. The good news is that all of the features are awesome including the special races that they made like the Eliminator and the Traffic Attack levels were awesome. They also have signature moves, customized your vehicle, destroy every car in your path. WOW! I can't imagine how EA gonna have their tricks to their sleeve because of the dangerous and psysical racing franchises you ever get to play. But I hope they should add another title to the Burnout family. Revenge is awesome, can't wait till this game is gonna be in the PS2 Classics list. Expand

    Burnout revenge has got to be the best racing game ever made. the destruction, speed and carnage in this game is so great it makes it constantly enjoyable. when ever i play it im hooked for hours on end and with the volume blasting out its like your there in the game. i bought burnout 3 and couldn't belive how good it was. so good i didn't think it could get any better but it did, so much more better it blows me away. Without a doubt burnout revenge kicks a**! Expand

    This is a great game. I generally dislike arcade racers, but I think that this is the only one I'll ever need. The modes are varied enough to keep the challenge fresh and there are plenty of unlocks to keep you occupied. The first of two gripes are that crash mode is a little to hard and a little too random. You just have to keep retrying it until enough of the drone cars crash into you to get a perfect. Secondly I have had my car fall 'out of the map' on at least five occasions after being rammed. Surely quality control should ahve picked this up as the game involves constantly being rammed into stuff! It's ugly and spoils the immersion. Otherwise is fast, fluid, great fun and gut wrenchingly visceral. A wonderful racing title where escaping alive means is better than shaving tenths, and hitting you rivals is more rewarding than hitting the apex. Nev. Expand

    Revenge is actually decent, I played a PSP Burnout, and definitely I enjoyed the handheld version. So what happened to the big guy? I didn't felt that kind of abominate force that had the psp version in this Burnout. Okay the cool fights with other cars crashing constantly is unstoppable but the levels, or the maps of racing etc don't appeal me and start feeling incomplete or not satisfying. But that being said, Burnout Revenge was quite a nice revenge well made . Expand

    Its a good game, but since the first two were terrible, it is agree-able that this game's style is the same as the first two, as it is, this one should be terrible too. In that case this game is a ledtown and enchants the flow of the Burnout trilagy. Expand
