  1. The game is fast, crazy, gorgeous, and with the new modes for online play, a ton of time can be eaten up online and offline as well.
  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.

    The slightly sharper visuals and online enhancements just aren’t worth the extra $30. However, if you haven’t experienced Burnout before, then the 360 version is the perfect place to start.
  4. The visuals don't merely look like an overhaul, the sound is as amazing as ever, and it definitely makes good use of high definition and Xbox Live.
  5. 87
    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.
  7. 80
    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.

    Online multiplayer mode is incredible...the people you play against, the gameplay, everything is great (but the EA servers, of course, have Online multiplayer mode is incredible...the people you play against, the gameplay, everything is great (but the EA servers, of course, have some problems eventually). The one thing that knocks this down from a 10 is the fact that all the crash junctions are a wee bit too tough, some of them are just impossible to perfect. There's an inbalance of cars online. The revenge racer is said to have a max speed of 209 mph, but it really can go as fast as it wants...while it handles like a tank. The Nixon, on the other hand will handle amazingly but won't go as fast as the revenge racer. While this sounds all balanced and nice, it really doesn't balance it out too well. 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. 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. Collapse
