  1. So fun, that you'll find yourself addicted in no time. The controls are simple, but the gameplay is complex and delightful to play. And the killer soundtrack just adds bounty to the beautiful.

    May be almost too fast and furious for an arcade racing game. Although not an essential addition to the Burnout saga, Burnout Dominator definitely has its moments. Online play is sorely missed. [Apr 2007]
  3. An extension of all the things that made Burnout 3 a success (soundtrack and multiplayer excluded). The steering and speed boost mechanics, course design, and unrivaled thrill-factor come together for another addictive and surreal racing game.
  4. A fun and addicting arcade -racing game that fans of the series will enjoy, it’s just missing some key features that would make it a one of the series’ best, for that we’ll have to wait for the true sequel later this year.
  5. For $50, players deserve more than a badly-programmed mish-mash of the Burnout series. It’s easily the weakest console entry in the series yet.

    It's a patchwork of old and new in which the passion only flickes. [May 2007, p.106]

    It doesn't matter how good the rest of a game is, though, if the controls betray you just when you need them most. [May 2007, p.55]

This is coming from a guy who beat both games getting gold in every single event.

    Why I give Dominator my pick as favorite is because of it's new mode (the name skips my head since i beat it 3 years ago, could even be called "dominator" haha) where if good you can remain in boost an entire race. Nothing was more fun for me than mastering a track, and avoiding obstacles at high boost speeds, though yes there were many moments where I felt like throwing the controller at the TV.

What's the deal with not being able to check traffic in Dominator? A very rude surprise indeed, the first time I tried a traffic-check takedown. Dominator will probably be welcomed by those without a next-gen console, but everyone else should wait for Burnout 5. Expand

    Burnout: Dominator was a PSP game before it was ported to the PS2. Much like GTA: Liberty City Stories, it suffers from the translation. ThisBurnout: Dominator was a PSP game before it was ported to the PS2. Much like GTA: Liberty City Stories, it suffers from the translation. This was meant to be a mobile game, not a console title. As a result, it is a huge stepdown from the previous two games. I remember enjoying it, but also feeling that a lot was missing. Fun, but a non-essential entry in the series. I would rate this with a 7.7 out of 10. Expand

    This is more of the same game. I feel like the controls or cars were simplified for the PSP although it may not be true. Burnout 3:Take DownThis is more of the same game. I feel like the controls or cars were simplified for the PSP although it may not be true. Burnout 3:Take Down is a better game with better graphics (because its PS2). There are times when I can't really say a game has something wrong with it, but I can't outright recommend it either. The first level has a lot of un-skippable cut scenes and interrupting dialogue boxes. I'd rather play this series on a big TV than on PSP. The presentation of the game doesn't make it feel much different. Expand
