Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Burnout 2, like its acclaimed predecessor, puts fun right at the top of the agenda, dispenses with niggling irritants like realism and delivers top-class gaming entertainment.

So what's new? There are additional locations, including a twisty road round the Rocky Mountains and an inspired airport-based level. There is also a greater choice of vehicles. Naturally enough you have to balance your need for speed against the need for good handling and take into account the weather and the kind of level you're racing across.

Yet the core of Burnout 2 is still arcade-style racing and there's little else that does it better. It's incredibly accessible and an absolute blast to play. It doesn't matter whether you're competing in the enhanced single-player modes or hooking up with friends--it's completely irresistible. Visually, the game looks great and moves very, very quickly. The action is interspersed with elaborate crashes, and when you do hit something you shouldn't, you're rewarded with an action replay for your trouble.

There are genuinely very few negatives here. Those who prefer their driving games flavoured with a bit more realism are going to be happier with a Gran Turismo game. Also, despite some good improvements and additions, there aren't enormous differences between this and the original Burnout. However, Burnout 2 is an exemplary piece of gaming entertainment, and a welcome antidote to the growing band of games that just take themselves far too seriously. Treat yourself. You'll be glad you did. --Simon Brew

Burnout 2 takes all the best bits of driving games - crashes, ultra-high speeds, power-slides etc - and moulds them all into an utterly fantastic video game experience.
The graphics are some of the best seen on the PS2; the cars aren't exact replicas vis a vis GT3, but everything is really polished. You must see the rain and snow effects!
This game is really, really fast. You build up your nitro (turbo boost)and then hold down r2 for as long as possible. If you manage to gain points whilst using turbo, you get instantly another nitro. This carries on for as long as you are able (my record is five - not easy at all, believe me), allowing you to reach insane speeds.
I've had this game since it came out in October, and I can unequivocally state that it still produces the same level of adrenaline rush now as it did then (if not more). Simply brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Speed, fun and crashes. 6 Jun. 2003
Format:Video Game
Burnout is in no way to be taken as a simulator. It in no way models the cars handling, speed or grip on real life. And it is all the better for it.
The basic premice of the main game is to race around tracks at high speed in modified cars (a la fast and furious) and dodge in and out of traffic, using the oncoming lane if so desired, and catching air off crests in the road. Doing any of these three things increases your boost gauge. A full boost gauge means that you can go even faster, and the screen goes all distant and slightly out of focus (again a la fast and furious). Needless to say this is immense fun. There is also one other way you can increase your boost gauge and that is by drifting. Mid way through a corner slam the brakes and then accelerate. The car will slide willingly and you can play with it on the throttle. This is SO much fun. You can keep it sliding like this for most of the race after a while and thus you get boost after boost after boost. If you win the race you get a cup and go onto the next round. You may win a new car if you complete a pursuit (pursue a computer car in your cop car and ram them until their life goes down).
However, if you should crash...the screen zooms out, you see a balletic display of your beloved car pirouetting across the screen/through the air/into walls/over cliffs. Its quite wonderful. BUT obviously this gets annoying. Luckily, by the time it gets annoying you'll be good enough to avoid virtually all crashes and so it becomes unimportant.
Another mode of the game is the EXTREMELY fun crash mode where you have to deliberately smash your car into traffic and cause as much damage as possible. The bigger the crash (the more trucks/buses/cars that are involved and the severity of their impacts) the more points you get.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super fast!! 11 Sept. 2004
Format:Video Game
In my opinion this is an amazing game for many reasons. There's so much to do on there.
Lets start with the graphics.
Amazing, probaly got better graphics than any of my games. When you crash your car, it just looks so real, like that is what would happen to it and the cars look great before you smash em up. The surrounding environment looks pretty good such as trees, cafe's and mountains. All the smoke and extra stuff also looks great. Graphics = 10/10.
Audio.
The audio is great too. When you driving your car and using your turbos, they sound as though your there. And when you crash your car or zoom past the motorway slowpokes, it sounds amazing. When you crash you can hear the crunching of your car as it tears apart. Audio = 10/10.

Gameplay.
The gameplay is excellent. Like i said earlier, there's so much to do. You can do championships and win medals and trophy's, you do pursuits, crash mode which is the best thing. You start with loads of turbos go round a bend or whatever and then smash into the traffic jams, there's 15-20 of them i think and there all different. You crash and then it calculats how much dollars worth of damage you've created. The more damage, the more money, the better medal you get. There's also a learning school which you also get medals on and if you get all golds you unlock the drivers ed car. When you do a pursuit you will unlock the car you chased which are normally better than the one you are using. The best car is the supercar. There's about 18-20 cars in total. It is a mutilplayer game where you can do 2 player crash, races and pursuits. As your racing you fill your turbo up by going past cars fast without touching, skidding round bends and doing jumps etc. Gameplay = 10/10.
Overrall i rate this game 10/10 or 5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, fun, fun! 4 Jan. 2004
By mr_ska TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Video Game
Burnout 2 is really good fun. When you first load it up you have to complete the 'offensive driving 101' (tutorial) bit which gently teaches you the basic controls and techniques of the game. The controls are easy to get to grips with so you will be burning rubber in no time at all. Then the real fun starts!
The various game modes and other extras that you unlock through completing tasks and winning races in the one player mode are all excellent. My favourite is the 'crash' mode which gets you speeding in your shiny new car towards oncoming traffic and you get to cause huge pileups for points! If you used to bash your toy cars together when you were a kid then you will love this too. It all sounds and looks fantastic when the vehicles skid and smash into each other. It is so enjoyable you just can't help doing it over and over again to see if you can get a better score from a worse accident :-)
The only problem with the game is that it is a little too focused on the single player. All the extra modes, extra cars, and extra tracks are opened up through the single player game. Seeing as there are no two player modes available at all to begin with this does mean that you are unlikely to get a really fair multiplayer game as the person who puts in the most work to unlock the extras is bound to be better.
That said, the game is still excellent. The sensation of speed comes across well, the sound effects from the screeching of tyres to the crunching of metal and tinkling of glass in the crashes are near perfect, and the music is just right. The game looks good too. There are some really good visual effects, the glaze on the tarmac which reflects the yellowish light of the sun is particularly good.
