[edit] Background

Grab the wheel and hold on as you takedown the competition with the most spectacular smashes this side of Hollywood. Use your car as a weapon and battle to the front of the pack. Live dangerously and indulge your thirst for twisted metal with a dedicated crash mode that rewards you for creating massive pile-ups. With over 100 events spanning 40 tracks, addictive multiplayer gameplay, and the most dramatic crashes ever seen in a videogame, Burnout 3: Takedown is a breakneck, adrenaline-fuelled, awe-inspiring racing experience. Aggressive racing required, seatbelts not included

[edit] Gameplay

Burnout 3 promises to be the most action-packed entry in the series to date, rewarding players not only for driving dangerously but also for using their cars as weapons with which to eliminate opponents via slam, shunt, and takedown maneuvers. Street circuits in the game will be set in North America, Europe, and the Far East, each with plenty of opportunities to gain bonuses by racing toward oncoming traffic. Single-player gameplay modes in Burnout 3 includes both race and crash championships, as well as other options that are not being announced at this time. Single-player races in the game will take place against five opponents rather than three, as in previous Burnout titles, and the new "Hollywood-style" stunt crashes promise to be the most spectacular crashes seen to date.
