Product Description

Burnout 3: Takedown (Xbox).

Manufacturer's Description

Burnout 3 takes the series even further, now featuring a unique "crash and burn" racing concept and a one-of-a-kind special effects engine that delivers spectacular visuals. The intensity heats up as players race, and often crash, their way through oncoming traffic in an attempt to claim the top spot. Boasting multiple single-player, multiplayer and online crash and race modes, Burnout 3 offers players the opportunity to race through busy city streets and be rewarded for taking risks that result in heart-pounding action and electrifying crashes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning game, totally addictive 18 Nov 2004
We bought this about three weeks ago and have been playing it almost every night and through most of our weekends.

The graphics, controls and gameplay are excellent, although the soundtrack is OK rather than blow-you-away; there is a lot of bias to the rather samey skate-punk tunes, but there are a few stand-out tracks from the likes of the Ramones & Franz Ferdinand buried in there as well. The soundtrack can be customised to play selected songs from the full list. There is also the option to turn off the annoying DJ, which is nice.

Another use made a comment about the scenarios becoming repetitive. Personally, I've found it to be far from repetitive; the number of different scenarios is huge, and there are a number of variations in the race and crash types, and even rival driver AI varies to avoid it becoming boring. The depth of the game really stands out, not only is there probably at least 50-60 hours of the main World Tour game to complete, but all the single race and crash options, all of which can be played using cars unlocked from the game (try crashing buses and A-team vans!)

It's *very* addictive - "just one more go" to complete each crash scenario, and then "just one more go" to attempt another one...and another - suddenly the time has gone from 8pm to 11.30pm!

Buy it, enjoy it, but remember that you'll probably be giving up the next 6 weeks of your life to have "just one more go!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Prepare to let this take over your life..... 15 Oct 2004
This game is insanely fast and dangerously addictive. Great graphics, excellent soundtrack, masses of events and the best arcade racing action of any game, EVER. If you like arcade racers then you cannot ignore this title. It will take you at least 30 hours to get gold medals for all events (based on the fact that I have half of them after 15 hours - and it is now getting very challenging!) plus you can go back and do many events again just for fun or to beat the records. Add to that the unlimited potential of on-line play via xBox live and you have one massive title that cannot fail to dissapoint or be superb value for money.
The ONLY criticism I have is that it would have been nice to have a wider choice of colours for the cars (mostly red, blue, white or black) and for the cars to vary a bit more than they do within each class. Having said that there are loads more cars then in the previous Burnout games, plus some outragous machines that can be unlocked when you've completed certain objectives.
Not quite gaming perfection, but 99% there and that's as close as any racing game has ever come in my book.

4.0 out of 5 stars FAST FAST FAST! 6 Jan 2005
By A Customer
Ok, let me just state, Burnout 3 is faster than any game before it. It's faster than you could ever imagine, jesus, its to fast to see. Ok now that that's sunk into your mind, The CRASHES. Sweet Mary Jesus the crashes. It's better than anything you've ever seen in a Hollywood movie. Guarented. You cant help smile every time, even though you've just crashed and probablty lost, you can't help sitting and smirking .

The emphisis is no longer just on racing. As you've probably heard, it's now about destroying your rivals too. There are a few different race modes as well: Race (just a normal race) Crash (Create as much damage as possible) Hot Lap (Basicaly, Time trial) eliminator (last in every lap gets knocked out) Grand prix (a few races for points) and another mode where you just have to take down your enimies.

The "story" (I wouldn't really call it that, but...) mode is "Burnout World Tour." There is no story, just lot's of races. You have to race to unlock medals and awards, cars, and NEW RACES! Lots more new races! It really is a shame EA couldn't put a decent story in, because that would definitly bumb it up to five stars. So this game does start to get boring. So come on EA story for Burnout 4 please! The music is rubbish, just that crappy Punk rock we are all bored with, but thankfully you can turn them off or put your own songs on.

There is quite a good selection of cars (and trucks and buses) from Sports to Muscle to Compact to Specials, all very fast. Jesus, when you get in the F1 type car it's so fast you cant really see where you are going.

There is also online racing, but not being connected to Xbox live myself, I have never played it online. Although I can assure you it will be great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Racing Game Ever 13 Sep 2004
Remember the hours of fun playing Burnout 2? Remeber how you used to laugh at the fact you could plough into vehicles at breakneck speeds and cause total carnage? Well this concept has been stretched even further in Burnout 3. Many more game modes to play. Many more Crash for Cash Junctions to cuase Havoc in, and more interesting vehicles to choose from. Working on a similar concept to Burnout 2, the more you progress in Single Player, the more cars you get overall. The Single players takes you to different continents where you compete in a variety of events ranging from Fastest Laps, to the awesome new event called Road Rage - the object of this is to take out your opponenets a set number of times before the timer runs out or your car gets too damaged. Crash for cash has also changed slightly. You gain powerups which can alter your score or just cause more mayhem. Imagine flying down a highway then suddenly explode sendings cars flying in all directions doing more damage than you thought possible. Other enhancements to the game itself include "Impact Time" where you slow down the time you are in the air. Coupled with this, you have "Aftertouch". What this basically is, is allowing you to have control of your vehicle as it sails through the air after a crash. The graphics on the game are great and if you can draw your eyes away from concentrating on the racing to look at the scenery and the superb lighting on the skies you'd be pleasantly surprised.
I'd say if you haven't got it already, you ought to get it because this is a game that won't disappoint!
