  1. Burnout: Revenge proves once again why it is the ultimate spectacle for those of us who just want to feel the rush. You know you're playing a great game when even the pauses in the action are filled with rockin' music, flashy video and big sound effects.
  2. There's little chance to get bored, too, simply because of the volume of stuff to do in every race. Even a Bronze unlocks new stuff, but more obscure cars require specific goals like finishing a race unscathed or getting signature takedowns... Burnout's utterly, utterly brilliant. [GamesMaster]
  3. With its extensive list of events and near unlimited replay value, Burnout Revenge still maintains the visceral carnage that fans (and angered commuters) everywhere have come to expect.
  4. Tons of tracks, events, and online races give Revenge plenty of variety, but it's the blinding speed and the velvety smooth controls that make this the best racing game of the year.
  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.

    By far the biggest step up lies in the course design, offering dozens of alternative routes and short-cuts on each map and making far more use of vertical travel than Burnout ever did. [Nov 2005, p.90]

    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 betterAwesome 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

This is one of the best games I've ever played. On the down side, it does save and load slowly, but that is to be expected since there is so much to do and the graphics are kicken.
    I'm very lucky since my fiancee won us a 42" plasma. God I love that women!

    Nearly everything is improved, from the tracks to the cars and even the presentation. Traffic attack is really fun in my opinion. The Nearly everything is improved, from the tracks to the cars and even the presentation. Traffic attack is really fun in my opinion. The terrible thing is that they screwed up Crash mode, arguably the biggest draw to the last game, to the point that it just isn't fun. They put an unnessessary meter at the beginning of the Crash event that determines the amount of boost you have. This may sound like a good idea, but it's execution is tedious and annoying, you can blow yourself up right there if you aren't careful and you'll have to go through all the animations and crap before you can retry. A lot more is wrong with the Crash mode that I won't go into. Otherwise it's a great game in my favorite racing game series. 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, 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
