Burnout 3: Takedown is an absolutely amazing game. The main game mode is the Burnout 3 World Destruction Tour, where you go round the globe, winning races while at the same time getting "Takedowns" (eliminating opponents by crashing them into walls, other cars, etc), taking part in Road Rage events (getting the most Takedowns before getting Taken Down yourself), and Crash. Crash is the best part of the game. You start at a point, before charging into a junction, trying to cause the most damage possible. Hitting targets such as multipliers also increases your score. You get medals for how much damage you cause. As you progress through the world destruction tour, you unlock new cars, heavyweights, and tracks, for reacing certain Takedown or Crash targets.
The gameplay itself is stunning. You speed through the traffic, earning "boost", and attempting to win the race while at the same time trying to Takedown your rivals. Crash is great too. There are over 100 crash junctions in the game, for you to smash into, and rack up the cash. The graphics are awesome, and the cars look great, apart from they dont have real names, they are called things like "Muscle type 1", or "Euro Circuit racer".
The sounds of the game are wicked as well. Your car is tuned to Crash FM, with DJ Stryker. The music is wicked, and Strykers comments really make it seem like a real radio station, with Traffic reports, etc.
Overall, the game is completely mental. It's just awesome. If I could suggest an improvement, I would like to see real cars, and perhaps the chance to mod your car too. Overall 10/10.
