    This isn't anything like Burnout 3... this game sucks... i think it has only total 4 vehicles... details sucks... etc doesn't have the same feeling as Burnout 3.

    Pure arcade fun. Not too complicated. A few flaws are present but nothing serious. Great game for those of us who just want to drive way to fast in traffic. Love the crashes!!!!

    Does not come close to Gran Turismo 3 in detail. The crashes while cool at first get old quick and take too long to play out. Would have been a good game on a PS about 3 years ago. Today it's cliche and lacking. I don't see why anyone would buy this over Gotham Racing or GT3 if ya have a ps2.

    A solid competitor - fast and fun and oddly addictive. [Summer 2002, p.93]
  2. You will not believe how exciting this game is. Burnout features the kind of on-the-edge-of-your-seat action that made movies like "Speed" a success.
  3. There will be times when you get so frustrated you'll throw the controller down in frustration, but 5 minutes later you're picking it back because the game is not only challenging, but fun.
