  • Summary: Burnout 2: Point of Impact is the follow-up to the original smash hit with improved graphics, faster gameplay, and bigger, more spectacular crashes. While the first Burnout was inspired by European movies and locations, its sequel is inspired by American films such as The Fast and the Furious. Set in US locations, the game gives you an all-new set of vehicles: modified Japanese cars, pickups, SUVs - plus some bonus rides such as police cruisers, and classic 50's hotrods. Also, expect tighter handling, better crash deformations, new music, new game structure, enhanced physics, new lighting, improved car models, a new replay system, and fast-paced fun. Expand

    It's fast, it's addicting, and it's got Live support. You simply cannot go wrong with this title, and this one is truly the best version.
  2. I am completely stunned at how much playtime this game has.
  3. An exhilarating and addicting arcade racing experience wrapped in some great looking graphics.
  4. 90
    Although the PlayStation 2 and GameCube versions of the sequel have been available for some time, the Xbox version nudges ahead of the other two as the best looking of the bunch.
  5. 89
    One of the best arcade racing games I've played.
  6. The crash mode alone makes this game worth seeing, and the inclusion of the well-done championship and multiplayer modes makes it the best pure arcade-style racing game available on the Xbox.
  7. Offers very little above the original Playstation 2 version.
