I recently bought a game for the XBOX called Burnout Revenge...IT IS AWESOME! I have been a buyer of each burnout game since the first one...And they just keep getting better and better...I noticed no one posted anything about it yet so I decided to post a notice about it...biggrin

The game is a racing game...If you don't like racing games then...YOU WILL LOVE IT!

It's not the typical scrape a wall at 10mph and I lose the race...It's a hardcore kill everyone in sight and slam traffic since you can't do it in real life!

It's great...heres the review, movies, and screenshots ect.

I can almost garentee that if you played this game you would be hooked for life...As I am right now...Enjoy!

This looks pretty awesome. I've been waiting for it, But haven't got around to playing it yet. I had the second and third one and could NOT stop playing for months. Its ridiculously addicting. although being able to hit cars and not crash sounds like a lame addition.

I played this game at best buy recently, and my brother and I have all three of the first ones. That game is totally awesome.

It's not as big of a leap as form the second one to the third one but its pretty cool...You know how annoying starting an annoying eliminator even was?

Well now the cars get eliminated EVERY 25 SECONDS!

It makes it more tense and it just makes it so much more fun...The crash mode is COMPLETELY different and so much cooler...Have you played Madden and you do the funky little manuver with the bar to kick the ball for a feild goal or a kickoff? Exatcly the same...Only your launching a car!

This game is great...When EA took over...The series has shot off in the markets...biggrin

Wow, I didn't know that about the crash mode. That sounds sweet. I'm hoping to get this or the psp one soon.

I reckon Burnout would work fine on a PC, especially with a steering wheel or joypad attachment. I think what you meant is that Burnout can't really be played on a keyboard, in which case I agree. wink

Uh, you obviously don't know much about PC gaming. Also, game controllers that duplicate the PS2 controllers are available from Logitech and are great. Also, would getting the game for PSP be worth it? Isn't it just a watered down console version? I suppose playing it on the go is cool, but still, I would much rather have that on my TV. I am not too much of a racer fan but I enjoyed Burnout 2 and 3 on my PS2.

Ok so I don't know too much about PC gaming but you don't read up too much on console gaming...Theres going to be a special version of Burnout for the PSP called 'Burnout Legends' This acctually looks pretty darn good for a PSP...And no a PSP is not just a watered down version of a PS2 it is acctually, in someways better than a PS2.

I think the PSP kicks the DS's butt by far...Only if it had a dual screen...hmm...

Anyway I'm glad you enjoyed Burnout 2 and 3. I most definately did too..biggrin

Ok, why the hell did you make a DS vs. PSP comment? This is absolutely ridiculous. Any mention video games and a debate either starts, or someone tries their hardest to start one. Pooky: that's what I was refering too also. And I was not talking about the system swg33k, I was talking about THAT SPECIFIC game. Notice though, it was not a comment, but a question.

Dude...Chill out I wasn't trying to make a controversy...Geez man...

You asked a question about the PSP and I was assuming that you wanted to buy it or something...So I answered it and made a comment about the DS becuase you might be considering of buying that too...Really you seem to take everything as an attack...Thats what I've been doing but now I've stopped...Was I rubbing off on you or something!?

Personally. I think Burnout is fun for about five minutes. Then I start to get rather sick of it. Point of Impact (Burnout 2) was a little bit more of the same, but with even more stupid modes. And I'm quite sure this new Burnout has even more insanely 'fast' modes. Just so they excuse speed for lack of imagination.

Give me F Zero X on the Nintendo 64 anyday.

Thanks for the honest opinion er-no...Have you played Burnout 3 yet?

Its a much better version than 2 I think...smile

Yeah...I've played F-Zero for the Gamecube...OMG THAT IS ONE OF THE HARDEST RACING GAMES EVER!!

Man I almost took a hammer and killed my GC because I got so mad at that game!

It took me over 2 months just to beat the story mode type thing...I haden't unlocked everything yet either...

Heh. Yeah, F-Zero on the Gamecube was extremely hard (the game was built and made by Sega AV who constantly develop arcade machines. I guess they by default built 'extreme difficult' into the standard mode of GX). Still, I really enjoyed it smile

And just if you didn't catch it, I was referring to F Zero X on the N64. Superb racing game. I'll be smitten if that get's released on the DS. Would love to play that whilst on the tube/train.

Yeah but Burnout is the type of game where graphics are a big part of the experience... so a DS version will probably stink.

swg33k: Sorry, but you just seemed to take it off topic, like many people do that are trying to start these annoying DS vs. PSP threads. I got annoyed because you led it to that, comparing hardware, when I asked about the differences between PS2 and PSP software, not DS and PSP hardware. Whatever, it's cool.

Er-no, F Zero X sucks. GX on the GCN is much better. Though my favorite racing game remains Mario Kart for the N64. Also, I think most DS versions of a PSP/Console version will not be nearly as good.

Burnout 3 is one of of my favorite game of all time, and is right next to "Speed devils" on the gamecube for most fun racing game ever made.
Burnout 2 had a speed limit and somewhat boring tracks after awhile, whereas, burnout 3 didn't seem to have a well defined speed limit, and absolutely SCREAMS in single player with the F1 car. Rarely have i had as much fun as i did with 5.1 surround, a big tv and trying to beat the burning lap with the f1 car. it was also painfully hard.

F zero on 64 was great. gc version nearly brought me to tears.

I really liked Burnout 3, for me it was the perfect mix of speed and destruction. Proper edge of your seat action. So far I'm liking Burnout Revenge but not quite as much as Burnout 3.

Revenge has loads of cool stuff; the massive jumps and vertical takedowns, the tracks with multiple routes, and the huge crash courses with big ramps. But for some reason it doesn't have that Burnout 3 feel. I think it's the graphics, they're almost too detailed. Theres so much going on that its hard to figure out which way the track is gonna go or whats coming towards you. I find myself wiping out for no obvious reason (maybe I just need a bigger TV). It feels like I'm just fluking my way round the track and not using any real skill.

It also seems kinda buggy in places. Takedowns sometimes count against me even if I obviously knocked out the opponent. Sometimes you get respawned in stupid places like facing directly into a wall. And a couple of times I've sunk right through the track into the void. Crash mode also annoys me, because whilst it looks fantastic the camera seems to be locked on boring parts where nothing is happening.

I imagine I'll play till I've medaled all the levels, but it'll be interesting to see how I cope with the faster later levels. Maybe I just need a bit more practice.

The last levels of the game are much more intense...I love it because you can start doing crashbreakers in races, road rages, and grand prix!

I hope you can like Burnout Revenge better Malone...I don't think It was as big of a step from Burnout 2 to 3 but it sure made it cooler...smile

Yeah, from the screens I saw of burnout ds, the graphics stink, so I think it'll be pretty hard to make a good quality burnout on ds.

No, it wouldn't be hard, the developers just suck at life. (the DS ones for this game.) They are putting no effort into, just trying to earn a little bit of money.

True, I think there are only like 20 tracks and 16 cars, or something like that. All I know is I probably won't be buying it.

acctually theres about 40 tracks...and about 6-12 events in each track...Acctually if you go over each rating 1-10 it will tell you how many events are avalible...In just the first one there are about 60...the last one theres about 115...Thats just the minimum and maximum think of al the stuff that could be in the middle!

Not always, cause' ds has quite a few good 3-d games, it's some fail, normally racing games, which burnout is. The burnout seris needs good graphics, because you can't really enjoy making a forty car pileup if you can't even see whats going on.
