THE GOOD: The Crash mode, Pursuits, graphics, and overall gameplay.
THE BAD: There is only two types of camera modes( over the hood, and bumper cam) seriously its lame. You kind of get the headstart at the begginning of championship races.
SUMMARY: Clearly this game is meant for anyone. Its so simple to start. I mean you would be fine if this is the first racing game you've ever played. the championship mode is good, that is where you unlock everything. Time attack is good for practicing. Oh, and crash. This is what the game was made for. running down street to make the most dangerous crash ever. The online leaderboards for the xboxlive is sweet.
YOu can unlock many cars, track, and modes. there are awesome cars the tracks are great and modes rule. I love the pursuit and crash. In pursuit you have to knock your opponent of the road a # of times. In crash, you speed in local road and interstates and hit the right car, you might get alot of damge points. As the object of the game is to crea...
THE GOOD: Smooth: 60fps! Racing is fast, fast, fast! Crash mode is totally addicting, especially comparing your scores to the online scoreboard.
THE BAD: Camera can be glitchy (esp in replays), no editable/saveable replays, interface is somewhat clumsy, later races are difficult (for me), manual is incomplete, other minor imperfections here and there
SUMMARY: I've played race games that were prettier, although graphics here are very good. And this game is very arcadey (although it HAS to be, otherwise racing into downtown cross-traffic at 120mph would last only 30 seconds). The reason I love this game in spite all the glitches noted here and above is the incredible sense of speed you get in "burnout" mode.
Perhaps even more importantly, crash mode is a blast: because of crash mode, this is the first game that has my buddy wanting to buy an Xbox, and he's seen all the other titles I own, from Halo to Splinter Cell. Crash mode never gets boring, especially when you compare your own sc...
THE GOOD: graphics, controls, uncomplicated easy to get into
THE BAD: really can't think of any that put me off the game
SUMMARY: Why this game is so good confuses me. I mean there is no money involved to buy cars, no garages, no authentic model cars with no true handling. There is not even a great amount of cars or tracks to unlock. The beauty of this game is that it is easy to get into and most of all FUN!. It has got to be the best arcade racer i have played. The feeling of speed and danger is unbeatable. Racing into oncoming traffic at about 120mph is something to experience. It's a great improvment on the first Burnout. The crash mode will keep you amused for hours. This game will have you coming back to it for months. I know true racers will prefer McRae and Project but this title is all about wetting your pants at over 100mph trying to avoid crashing and at the same time trying to get as close to crashing as you can to earn your boost. Great fun. 9/10
