..........::::::::::BrunOut 3 Review!::::::::::..........

Game Modes:
  • BurnOut World Tour
  • Single Event
  • Multi Player
  • Xbox Live
  • Sorry No Sys-link
BurnOut World Tour:
You Play in Three different region's of the world USA,EUROPE and The Far EAST,
completing missions race's,road rages,crash junctions,special events and Takedown timer's to get cash and to unlock new events,cars,trophies,signature takedowns,crash headlines and spacial event postcards.

Single Event:
In single event you can play the standard Race,Time Attack,Road Rage and Crash.
You Eran crash in theirs modes to unlock (cars only),you can only play the level that you beat in BurnOut World Tour.

Multi Player:
In multi Player Theres Race,Road Rage,Team Crush,Double Impact and party crash i like road rage and party crash the most in multi player.

Xbox Live:
I'm not sure what really is on Xbox Live, but its probably the same as multi player with some downloadable content.

Sorry No Sys-link:
Not sure why they didn't add a sys-link to the game it would have kicked ass on XBC or Kai thou.

I also think giving this game a 8 is being a little bit too hard on this GREAT game!

Professional review or not! smile.gif

Seems like a 9 or above for me too.
The fun factor and the whole experience is top notch.

Only wish it had system link so I could play with my buddies on Friday Nights! (like HALO, Rainbow6 and Crimson Sky)

no 1990's game like blowout3!

Just the car wreckage alone is NEW!

This game is so far in advance of NFS's ... I too wouldn't compare the 2.

I thought the other 2 burnout's physic's were off ... but liked those games... Blowout 3 did solve the physic's so it finally seems like a Arcade Racer and the Fun Factor and Graphics (crashes,ect) make it heads above other RACERS! PERIOD.

How about this Question.... Would you rather have NFS game or Burnout 3 ... and if you had only one Xbox CAR game ... would it be Burnout 3.
If you liked other xbox racing games alot better then I could see a 8 out of 10. But if out of 30 or so xbox car games ...this is the BEST and the most FUN ... I think 9 or above would be right.

Nice review and I guess useing your RATING system the game is a 8 but doesn't it FEEL LIKE a 9 or 10 game! smile.gif

this is the ONLY GAME I own that seems like if it was in MALL ARCADE would be awesome. My other xbox and PC game Racers are nice ,etd ... But Blowout 3 is just like something I would put quarters in ... Like playing in MALL.

I mean it's a CONSULE GAME and a good defination of a GAME is something that is played to HAVE FUN! ... the motion blur is GREAT! ....Crash scenes GREAT! ...All the AI battleling is GREAT! In most of my other xbox CAR games ... seems like CAR BATTLEING over long periods of time was not there. This GAME is all about Hitting and Pounding on your opponents ALL the TIME... so ACTION is always there.

The other car games are like pleasure DRIVING in the country in comparision!

Hope I convey the ENERGY this GAME has ...to those who have not played it.
The ENERGY is what I felt was LACKING in the REVIEW.
Sorry for double post ... but after playing the game another 1/2 hour and trying to think why I like the game so much ...figured I would add my extra 2 cents.
Maybe others can share their adrenaline feelings too ... and I FEEL that Energy needs to be in more of our XBOX GAMES.

1.the same team that made NFSU made this game, if you even played the game you would have seen it jackass.


Uhhh no. EA just published the game. Criten developed it. EA didint touch one bit of the the game. And AFAIK, criten never made a NFSU game, and theres no reason to be calling anyone a jackass.

2.it looks 1990's arcadey, like old school taxi games


Once again, this is meant to be a arcrade racer, it can be any type of arcade racer, this game is still fun.

QUOTE
3.the mini-map should be there so you can tell how far cars are away from you
Kind of agreed, but then its no fun for this type of game, the game tells you how many "seconds" your behind or ahead. and that alone makes you want to go crazy. muhaha.gif I dont care for a mini-map through. Game is f*cking awesome as it is.

it has to be arcade style because it's the only game that REWARDS me for doing all things we are taught NOT to do behind the WHEEL! ... drive on wrong side of street, hit your opponent, side swipe, ect!

I have nascar 2005 and everytime you hit someone... I hear ..."take it easy buddy, the body shop is not gonna like you" ....

I like it better if the guy said " Kill him, hit him, diestroy him, crash him into the Wall."

Do you get the IDEA! This is diffenently a game that means it when it says "kids, don't do this with your dad's car! " smile.gif

Very very entertaining!

I can't see how anyone manage to claim it looks like "NFUS", if thats ment to be NFS:U.
