    When i first got this game i couldn't out my controller down, but now i think that it gets annoying when u c ur crash three times. the crashes aint that great anyway. some tracks get boring as they are way to long. a good thing is that u can barge ur oppenent into oncoming traffic. as i sed b 4 i couldn't put it down but now it is just picking up dust under my shelfs.

    This games ok. There are some pretty neat crashes, but the music to it sucks. Very repetitive.

    An average racer with a good sense of speed. It simply cannot compete with the likes of "Gran Turismo 3" or "Metropolis Street Racer."

    A fast and furious game totally ruined by appalling problems with aliasing. It's all well and good zipping through crossing traffic, but when you can't see them coming....

  1. There’s not anything earth-shatteringly new in Burnout, but overall it’s a lot of fun to play.
  2. AI concerns make driving into oncoming traffic easier than it should be, while the moderate, but not extensive amount of cars and tracks mean that you'll be able to wrap up single player in less than ten hours.
  3. A racing title that blends adrenaline-pumping racing action to its purest level. Excellent physics detection and even better physical car damage and being topped off with crisp sound makes Burnout a title that should not be overlooked.
