  • Summary: Burnout Legends sets the bar for on-the-go automotive anarchy, combining the series’ trademark speed, destruction and depth with new PSP-only features, gameplay refinements and connectivity. Gamers can look forward to eight gameplay modes, including crash, road rage and pursuit, with white-knuckle multiplayer via WiFi, and a GameShare option allowing players to wirelessly share a demo level of the game with friends.

  1. The courses are as crisp as ever, while the bone-shattering mayhem on the roads looks and sounds just as convincing.
  2. Fans of the Burnout series will be hard pressed not to be impressed by what was crammed into such a small disc.

    Criterion pumps max performance out of the PSP and succeeds in delivering every last ounce of console chaos from the Burnout series in a handheld package.
  4. Not only does it look amazing but it plays just as fluidly and as gorgeously as the big boys do so do yourself a favor and pick this one up right away.
  5. The lack of Infrastructure mode was a bummer, but the great single-player mode more than made up for the lackings.
  6. An ‘original’ title based on previous games. Think of it as "Burnout 3+."
  7. 70
    In the end, Crash Mode really saves the game. The problems with translating the fast nature of racing to a small screen are nullified by the high fun factor involved with Crash Mode.

    Best racing game with MotorStorm in PSP. The crash mode is fantastic. You never get bored with this mode. Race mode is very good too but crash mode is better for sure. Expand

    Great visceral racer, almost as good as the best Burnouts on home consoles. Sweet graphics, proper soundtrack and sounds, very good production values. Might be a little short (5-7 hours to beat all World Tour levels), and I found the Crash mode to be a little lacking (long loading times, somewhat lacking in physics and graphical details compared to 'big' Burnouts), though you can easily spend some more time getting all gold in World Tour. Highly recommended! Expand

    If you love Burnout, then this game is a no-brainer. It's like an expansion pack for Burnout 3. And it has many of the tracks from previous games. Again if you love Burnout, then you know what to expect. I wish this was, however, released on the PS2 so I can see the detailed destruction of vehicles. Still, buy this game from PSN if you have a PSP or Vita. Expand

    Overal the game is good and interesting. But number of laps per race is always 3 which is a bit too long, since the lenght of a track is pretty decent. Expand
