  • Summary: Burnout Revenge is a racing game in which your desire for destruction is as important as your ability to reach the finish line. The sequel to Burnout 3 adds some new features such as detailed car damage, crash combos, and a meter that rewards vengeance on the road. Game modes run the range from pure racing to pure destruction on a handful of real-world locations, including Detroit and Rome. Burnout Revenge also supports online play for challenging other players. Expand

  1. Burnout devotees will love it but this is a game made for casual gamers. There's no massive skill required, it's a terrific accessible game for anyone.
  2. Every wreck is a visual affair to be savored and a delightful treat for a job nastily done. [Oct 2005, p.66]
  3. Although not a completely revolutionized title, Burnout Revenge adds so much in terms of game mechanics, it has quickly become my favorite racing game of all time.

    The Traffic Checking and trackside shortcuts gives Revenge a little more of a complex feel to the high speed simplistic madness of the series so far.
  5. Unfortunately, some of the upgrades also winds up diluting the strength of the game just a bit. Revenge will still fulfill your need for speed.
  6. An incredible amount of raw fun to play, remaining so similar to previous titles yet being so fundamentally different.
  7. It's overcooked and to slick, through redeemed by the sheer quantity of stuff you can do. [Dec p.90]

    Don't know what Dav H means by "no single player", I dont think he's playing the same game as me. This game is amazing, the visual are great, the sound effects are wicked, and the game just oozes action non-stop. It's great fun - and that's in single player, two player and online modes. Expand

    No single player..No replays after race or crash!! Im going back to burnout 2. EA cant take it away from me. Its fun for an hour but the lack of a replay system lke in bo2 is just too much to put up with. Collapse
