    Im sorry, but Midnight club II is way better. This one is just race after race after race, the only cool things are the crashes, other then that its not like it should of been. But, I well say it's alot better then the first, but it's just a boring racer and Midnight club II as twice as much to offer, with everything this title has......

    I too am a little disappointed with this title, although the crash sequences are fantastic. Despite the awesome crashes and imense feeling of speed that this game generates, I would never call it the best racing game on the xbox! In terms of game time, the single player missions come and go in the blink of an eye! Around 5 hours of gameplay and it's all over...all cars unlocked I too am a little disappointed with this title, although the crash sequences are fantastic.

In terms of game time, the single player missions come and go in the blink of an eye! Around 5 hours of gameplay and it's all over...all cars unlocked etc... difficulty settings need an over haul...yes there is a challenge with the customs cup, but it a simple matter of avoiding on-coming traffic and not much else...there is not much in the way of computer AI...they don't block paths or try and push you into traffic...nothing. The multi-player is fabulous however, and is the only reason this game has any longevity! For mine, Project Gotham is still the ultimate racing game for xbox. Many many hours of game play have gone into that one. (although I would love to see Grand Turismo 4 on the xbox...that would rule. Have you seen the photo-realistic back drops??? You must. It's almost enough to make my buy a PS2!!!) Expand

    In terms of pure adrenaline and graphical splendor, there isn't a racer out there that can stack up against Burnout 2. [June-July 2003, p.88]
  2. Any game that has you physically dodging oncoming cars from your television is no ordinary game.
  3. Offers very little above the original Playstation 2 version.
