  • 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.

    It looks, moves, feels and plays absolutely flawlessly, at breakneck pace and with consistently brutal and frenzied action.
  2. If you’re looking for that one game that has to be in your library that you can pretty much pop in no matter what your friends like, look no further Burnout Revenge is that game.
  3. Burnout Revenge will take days to beat and maybe longer in the single-player. Throw in the achievements and the game really is loaded with replay value.
  4. Judged against its peers, Burnout Revenge sets the standard for breakneck speed and destruction in the action racing arena. Anyone new to the series should rush out and add this to their collection.

    Visually stunning while maintaining a blazing speed and 60fps. The graphics really shine when played on an HDTV.
  6. A fantastic title that delivers what people expect in presentation and gameplay—nothing more nothing less.

    This is the definitive version of Burnout Revenge. There are more crash junctions, upgraded graphics and more expanded multiplayer; the port to the Xbox 360 has served the franchise well.

    This game rocks. Was unsure about the difference between the xbox and 360 version but this is as good as it gets. I knew there was a reason to fork out for HD! Worth every penny. Expand

    A brilliant game. The graphics are brilliant and the gameplay is amazing. Online and offline multiplayer is LOTS of fun. There's lots to do in the game. The career mode is long and doesn't get boring. There seems to be an endless amount of crash junctions, tracks, cars and cities to play with. The crashes and car-pile ups are fantastic to see. - some of the pile-ups are incredible. You get to drive a car into the middle of a busy road, then watch as cars, bused and tracks explode and crash into each other, then you can use your "Crashbreaker" which is simply just detonating a bomb and sending cars flying.... lots of fun. There are loads of crash junctions so you never ever seem to get bored. Unless you repeatedly did the same crash juction over and over again you might get bored. There is a pretty good replay mode too so you can re-live the entire crash sequence or race over and over. My only critiscism is that you can't move the camera yourself when watching Crash Mode replays... but that dosen't ruin the fun at all. You can do revenge races, grand prix's, crash modes and new this time around for burnout revenge is Traffic Attack in which you have to hit as much traffic as you possibly can. The sound in the game is good and the in-game music is fine. Although I've found that sometimes during the replay mode I can't hear the engine of the car or there will be no music for some reason. Even if you are pretty crap at racing games you'll still find Burnout Revenge lots of fun and the game is still passable at a bronze level etc. Or for those more experienced gamers you can try to get the more challenging gold medals at races. If you like arcade games and destruction or just racing games I'd recommend this. This is a must-have game for those who have Xbox 360's. Expand

    An excellent arcade racer that suffers simply because it's the exact same game released a year previously on the last console generation, just prettier making a purchase redundant to those who played it then. Those new to the game should check it out. Expand

    What an EA rip off, exactly the same game as 6 months ago, but more expensive! Save your cash and play the cheaper version on the Xbox. It's the same! Someone at EA should have put some effort into adding something to the game. Expand
