  1. The game is fast, crazy, gorgeous, and with the new modes for online play, a ton of time can be eaten up online and offline as well.
  2. If you’re looking for that one game that has to be in your library that you can pretty much pop in no matter what your friends like, look no further Burnout Revenge is that game.
  3. 92
    The slightly sharper visuals and online enhancements just aren’t worth the extra $30. However, if you haven’t experienced Burnout before, then the 360 version is the perfect place to start.
  4. The visuals don't merely look like an overhaul, the sound is as amazing as ever, and it definitely makes good use of high definition and Xbox Live.
  5. 87
    Visually stunning while maintaining a blazing speed and 60fps. The graphics really shine when played on an HDTV.
  6. A fantastic title that delivers what people expect in presentation and gameplay—nothing more nothing less.
  7. 80
    This is the definitive version of Burnout Revenge. There are more crash junctions, upgraded graphics and more expanded multiplayer; the port to the Xbox 360 has served the franchise well.

    Josh is quite clearly deranged. Give a game a '0' because "the graphics haven't improved enough"?? Idiot. Sounds like an angry Josh is quite clearly deranged. Give a game a '0' because "the graphics haven't improved enough"?? Idiot. Sounds like an angry little boy throwing his toys out of his pram. The game is great. I personally feel that it's a fun, replayable game that flexes the muscle of the console well enough considering the console is new. How long does it take a company to master building games for a platform?? In the case of the Xbox and PS2, it took ages. Games such as this, PGR3, and COD2 deserve a lot of credit for being this good so soon in the lifetime of the console. Expand

This is the most intense online experience and possibly theEverything that Burnout 3: Takedown was, have been refined in Burnout Revenge. This is the most intense online experience and possibly the definitive racing title of the 7th generation. Burnout Revenge introduced the revenge system for online play which kept a counter of how many times you had been taken down by a particular player, to know whether or not you must settle the score and vice versa. Burnout Revenge most notably improved on track design - implementing several shortcuts around the track to explore or avoid track. This move by the developers added incredible amounts of depth to the series and allowed players to strategise the best possible route to take to either or avoid traffic, or avoid other players. I played this game for thousands of hours, and it is by far one of the best games I've ever played, and the best Burnout game in the series! Expand

    A brilliant game. The graphics are brilliant and the gameplay is amazing. Online and offline multiplayer is LOTS of fun. There's lots to A brilliant game. The graphics are brilliant and the gameplay is amazing. Online and offline multiplayer is LOTS of fun. There's lots to do in the game. The career mode is long and doesn't get boring. There seems to be an endless amount of crash junctions, tracks, cars and cities to play with. The crashes and car-pile ups are fantastic to see. - some of the pile-ups are incredible. You get to drive a car into the middle of a busy road, then watch as cars, bused and tracks explode and crash into each other, then you can use your "Crashbreaker" which is simply just detonating a bomb and sending cars flying.... lots of fun. There are loads of crash junctions so you never ever seem to get bored. Unless you repeatedly did the same crash juction over and over again you might get bored. There is a pretty good replay mode too so you can re-live the entire crash sequence or race over and over. My only critiscism is that you can't move the camera yourself when watching Crash Mode replays... but that dosen't ruin the fun at all. You can do revenge races, grand prix's, crash modes and new this time around for burnout revenge is Traffic Attack in which you have to hit as much traffic as you possibly can. The sound in the game is good and the in-game music is fine. Although I've found that sometimes during the replay mode I can't hear the engine of the car or there will be no music for some reason. Even if you are pretty crap at racing games you'll still find Burnout Revenge lots of fun and the game is still passable at a bronze level etc. Or for those more experienced gamers you can try to get the more challenging gold medals at races. If you like arcade games and destruction or just racing games I'd recommend this. This is a must-have game for those who have Xbox 360's. Expand

    SIngle-player mode is incredible - I have never had such a gleefully fun time playing a videogame, even when I crash my car and have to startSIngle-player mode is incredible - I have never had such a gleefully fun time playing a videogame, even when I crash my car and have to start over. The graphics are fantastic, but the improvements over the XBox version aren't very pronounced - the original XBox version ran at 60 FPS and looked just fine, especially when there was too much mayhem taking place to remotely CARE about how good the lighting effects anfd motion blur are. The XBox 360 version's Crash Mode was dumbed down from the regular XBox version's as a result of the exclusion of EA's familiar launch meter, but it's still fun, and having A CAMERA THAT I CAN MOVE is a very welcome improvement from Burnout 3. My only complaint about Burnout Revenge for the 360 is a tragic one: once again, EA's online implementation is an atrocity. Upon this game's release you couldn't go online with more than four people and despite advertising that you can have 6-player matches, there are STILL problems with the 5th and 6th contenders getting booted off within seconds of merely JOINING A LOBBY! Hey EA: there are other games out there that support 24 players on XBox Live (you make one or two of them) and that number could grow to about 50 in the not-too-distant future. Is there really any excuse for this? Expand

    What an EA rip off, exactly the same game as 6 months ago, but more expensive! Save your cash and play the cheaper version on the Xbox.
