  • Summary: Fireburst sends players into a fiery, four-wheeled adrenalin frenzy. Behind the wheel of numerous different racers, drivers get to speed along paved race courses or wicked off-road tracks, showing no respect for their rivals. Thanks to a novel boost system, opponents are kept at a distance in spectacular ways in various single and multiplayer modes. The element of fire prominently features in all special maneuvers. It is possible, for example, to coat your own vehicle in protective flames, or make a rival's car explode with a burst of fire. Collapse

    All in all, Fireburst is a game that looks great, has tight controls and a great mechanic behind it, but has enough speed bumps that stack up against it to keep me from coming back for more.

    There's only one number that reflects this perfectly average experience.

    Fireburst is mediocre at best, playable whenever you have friends over, but not necessarily a first choice in anyone’s library. With the lack of any real story or campaign mode and busted online features, there are games that do a lot better than this offensive, boring and buggy arcade racer.

    The ideas are good, but not their implementation. There are some serious issues when it comes to the difficulty and level design that sadly ruin the general experience.

    To put it bluntly, don’t bother with Fireburst.

    But the biggest bug of all came when Fireburst simply stopped working, and hard-froze our console any time we tried loading an event. Deleting and downloading the game anew didn’t help; we had to start over using another gamertag. Were we not reviewing this horrendous, bug-ridden racer, we would’ve taken that as a welcome sign to burn it from our memories and never look back.

    All of the glitches, random crashes and lock ups found here make me wonder how something like this gets approved for release. Don't buy, don't try, just stay away.
