When you love addicting games you have to love the Burnout games. The new installment is the best game I have ever played in the racing catagory next to Gran Turismo. The graphics are unbelievable, you can skip the training videos, and the cars are so f'beep'ing tight. The crashbreaker is going to be very helpful in racing now. Just because you get wiped out doesn't mean you can't hurt the others. It doesn't take that long to get used to the controlers. There are alot of new tropheys and awards to get so if you dare rate this game below 5 than prepare to go to hel!!!!!!! No I can't say the actual word.

I really don't like racing/car games but the burnout series was so much fun that i just decided to keep this game. it combines the skill of racing with the fun of destroying every car that you see. this game was extremely entertaining and i recommend it to anyone who likes racing games or just blowing stuff up.

If you have never played a single game in this series, this is the game for you if you wish to start. The speed factor and frenzied pace alone will keep you glued to the screen for hours. This [game] is also a step above the others in the series with a large graphical boost and better damage rendering. After the eye candy is sorted out and waded through, the really good part of the game shines through, that is the crashes. The sheer amount of particle effects between the different collisions might just make your eyes bleed. And as with the others in the series, you can expect a plethora of different exciting game modes as well as online play to siphon even more hours of your life away. On the down side, with all of the nice speed and effects, you can expect a couple of framerate hiccups and slowdowns, but not enough to choke the gameplay. Unfortunately the one player mode may seem a little flat to the veterans of the series.

Down to brass tacks, the game looks beautiful and the controls are solid. Criterion strikes up a nice balance of freshness and reuse of good concepts to keep the series from getting stale. The game will chug when the action gets thick, but it will still be enjoyable. Online modes and multiplayer get your friends into the action as well, adding the Z plane to the 2D one player experience. The vehicle selection is large and interesting, and the EA Trax music selection has enough music for everyone. This game may be the most overlooked underdog racer of the year, but it is definately worth playing.
