    Look. I’ll break it down for you:

    Do you like to race cars in video games?

    Do you like to see cars crash, explode, flip, and disintegrate?

    That’s all you need to absolutely fall in love with this game.

    Some people complain about computer cars that throw themselves at you. Hello? It’s a videogame! I suspect that those complainers simply don’t know how to play the game to avoid these cars.

    As for the music and the DJ, guess what? You can turn them off if you don’t like them.

    But AI cars and punk music are not the reasons to love this game. The real star of the game is the ULTRA-realistic crash animations. I swear, you will never get bored of watching these cars crash. Sparks fly, fenders pop off, hoods crumple, and cars split in two in the most amazing animated crashes you will EVER see.

    I highly recommend this game. Is it the best RACING game out there? No. But it’s not about the racing. It’s about watching things blow up, going really fast, and not taking this too seriously.

    Have fun and buy this game!

    This is by far the best game in the Burnout series. I have all three. This game is great especially since EA decided to help produce this one. You get all of the special features of a big name game company (like actual songs from actual artists and online play) while still enjoying the simple fun of a small brand game. Don’t get me wrong this game is very complex, but the idea is the same, do the best crashes and finish first. I know some people are complaining about the lousy soundtrack, and I partailly agree. Some of the songs are pretty good (like the ones by Jimmy Eat World and New Found Glory) but most of them are stupid garage punk rock bands that don’t know the first thing about music. The other downside is that stupid Striker announcer guy. The graphics are great, but like some of the other reviewers noted, it’s not the ultra-realistic gran turismo graphics, but they are still one of the better PS2 games for graphics. Oh and there is soo much more stuff to this game. 100 crash junctions, 40 levels, almost 60 cars and thats just the start of. It also comes preloaded with the Need For Speed Underground 2 demo, and it seems like a pretty good game. Overall Burnout 3 is highly addicting and fun.

    I’m a huge fan of the Burnout series. I’ve been playing since the original a couple years ago and I can’t quite get tired of them. Some people had a problem with the first game’s long levels, but I thuroughly enjoyed them, it added that much more time to make others crash. And now, in the new game, Burnout 3: Takedown, you will find the 40 or so levels to be perfect, along with everything else in the stellar title.

    For one thing, the graphics, while not super realistic like Gran Turismo games, are still some of the best on the PS2. Everything is quite colorful and vivid, and you get a wonderful look at everything around you after someone has pushed you into a gaurdrail, causing you to flip around in the air while all the broken glass and flecks of paint and car part flaot around in slow motion along with you. But what makes crashing really fun, besides the awesome damage animation, is the fact that when somebody makes you wreck or you hit something and crash, you can hold a button to slow everything down, and you can actually move your crashed vehicle around to put it in the path of oncoming racers that may or may not have caused you to wreck, proceeding to cause of festival of twisted metal vengeance.

    But one thing that was more noticable than anything is the artificial intelligence in the other drivers. For the first time in any racing game I actually felt bullied around, like I do when I’m playing with real people. Which is needless to say really freakin’ cool. They ram you into oncoming traffic, tailgate, sideswipe, team up on you to sandwich your car, and coolest of all, they actually make realistic mistakes. They will literally misjudge a drift around a corner or get faked out by you or another car and crash. And that just blew me away.

    Now, onto the thing everybody likes to talk about, the speed. Even when not using your burnout meter, your screen is still blurred around the edges as you are pushing a minimum top speed of 150-160. Without your boost. That’s insane! Then, when you actually get some boost (which you can now use even when your meter isn’t full) you hit speeds closer to 200 mph! And you really take your life in your hands then, because by the time you actually see that car up ahead coming right at you in the oncoming lane, you’ve already smashed into it with tremdous speed. Note: this is not a complaint, it’s just a really cool idea pulled off superbly. Sure, you can race the entire level going mach speeds if you like, but you’ll probably crash more that anybody else too. So, unless you have Elven vision, I’d just wait till you find a good clean patch of road with little to no traffic on it to really hit the gas. Or if you’re a second behind somebody, and hitting them at turbo speed would mean a pretty crash for them, then by all means use it. You don’t have to listen to me, just race and win your own way.

    I’ll wrap up by saying that I have not beat this game yet. I’ve put about 9 hours into it so far and still haven’t unlocked a third of the games unlockables. And I haven’t even touched the multiplayer yet! So my advice to you is this: If you want the best arcade racer ever created, buy this game. If you’re not a racing fan, or if you don’t have a PS2 or XBOX, then don’t bother with this game. But if you’re capable of playing this game, be prepared to let that itch on your face go until the race is over…

    Graphics-5

    Sound-5 (except the soundtrack is new wave punk/pop, so I just turned it off. But the in game sound effects are much better than any of that crap anyway)

    Control-5

    Overall-5
