Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Even amongst EA’s own stable of titles, Burnout is regarded by many as the best arcade racer of them all and this fourth iteration, subtitled Revenge, looks like being a solid addition to the line. It seems to have wisely realised that the best bit in any of the Burnout games is the amount of destruction you can cause as you race and that all that winning a race malarkey is almost a secondary concern.

A new revenge meter tracks exactly how much damage you cause as you play skittles with traffic and try to cause as big a pile-up as possible--an activity that is encouraged even further in the new Traffic Attack mode. The actual revenge of the title though comes into play when you prang a specific rival one too many times and they start to take a personal interest in seeing your car go up in flames.

Although it doesn’t seem as if the graphics have changed all that much since the last game the level design has certainly become more inventive with huge multi-layer track layouts reminiscent of arcade classic Rave Racer--tearing along an overpass to fall vertically down three levels straight onto an opponent’s bonnets is pretty special.

Although surviving any of the game’s crashes would be impossible in real-life it has become slightly more realistic in other areas with more car deformation than before and real cities, including Detroit, Rome and Tokyo. Whether the appallingly annoying DJ from the last game is still in it though remains to be seen…--Harrison Dent

This preview is based on an incomplete version of the game; features or problems mentioned above may not appear in the finished game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great smash-em-up 16 Jan 2006
Burnout Revenge is the second game in the crashing series to be under the EA corporate umbrella. Like it's predecessor Burnout 3: Takedown, Revenge features a punk-lite soundtrack and enough adverts to drill the brand names into your mind for life. Corporate dealings aside, it's very much a different game.
For those not in the know, Burnout was one of the first game s to include extensive car damage. Unlike other games which featured lights smashed or windscreens cracked, Burnout went all the way - bumpers were torn off, tyres squealed and the cars were quite simply destroyed. The second game, Point of Impact, introduced a new Crash mode where players simply drove into a traffic-packed junction and caused the biggest pile-up they could. The third in the series, Takedown, allowed players to make their rivals crash and should players crash themselves, they could steer their wreck into rivals using the Aftertouch feature. Crash mode was redone as well - if players wrecked enough cars they could detonate their car using the Crashbreaker feature. Following on from this is Revenge.
Perhaps the most radical change is the ability to 'check' the traffic. Anything relatively small - like cars or vans - driving in the same direction as you can be pushed away from you, to get them out of the way. The moment you make contact with a car it bends and crumples with a satisfying smash and spins away, perhaps rolling over into another car, or even a rival racer to get a Traffic Takedown.
This newfound ability allows for tactics to come into the world of Burnout, - depending on where you hit the car, it will go in another direction, perhaps into more traffic constructing a blockade for rivals to win Takedowns.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish and fast 10 Mar 2006
By A Customer
One of the best driving games I've ever played. The game is very fast and full of action. The graphics are breathtaking at times, and most crashes are spectacular. The scope for different races every time is enormous, due to the variation in game modes and crashes. Durability is therefore strong. If you're looking for a F1 kind of game, this wouldn't do for you, but if you'd like a twist on a rally/arcade racing game, this is a simply must have. It has come so far since the original two burnouts. If you own previous editions, it is well worth the money to upgrade. Multiplayer mode is also good, and would provide hours of fun and revenge amongst friends. The only critisism I have about the whole game, is the fact that it can be difficult to see clearly at times when using split screen two-player. It is not a big flaw, and was obviously bound to happen with so much detail and action going on in a single screen. You will not be disappointed with this game. I have not had a chance to play the next game in the series, Burnout Legends, but if it is a further improvement of Revenge, it should be well worth a viewing. Awesome.

5.0 out of 5 stars If it ain't broke..... 25 Sep 2005
By OEJ & SKY TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
....then don't fix it! Those guys at EA are smart, they know how to satisfy those zillions of die-hard Burnout fans by giving us all the things we knew we already loved and just adding more of the same. As each of the Burnout iteration has come out it's always been an improvement on the one before, in Revenge there are few real shocks for those familiar with Takedown but it's all much better integrated (racing, crash and road rage) and now there's a kind of 'aggression reward' which means there's little to be gained in racing like a gentleman - you've got to do it like a madman with a hunger for taking down as many of your competitors as you can even though you don't necessarily need to to win a race. I'm glad they haven't messed with the basic formula too much, it's as addictive as ever and manages to blend skill & difficulty with good old laughs and entertainment; you're never left to feel a loser even if you don't win, and this is the key to its success, I reckon. You can't really compare Burnout with Gran Turismo, I know, but while GT4 is for purists and can be harsh on those who fail to make the grade, Burnout focuses on what video games should really be all about - having fun and putting a smile on your face whether you come first, second or third. Of course, winning is very satisfying but unlike GT4 it's not everything. I've tried a few other vaguely similar games (Need for Speed, Juiced, Driver3 etc etc) but Burnout, and now Burnout Revenge, is still the best fun of the lot. An absolute must-have!

5.0 out of 5 stars EA can be proud of this masterpiece... 29 Oct 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It's not often a game comes along in which you think "Wow, it's everything I wanted a game of this genre to be". "Burnout 3: Takedown" did this with the racing genre, creating a superbly fun and original racing game.

Now, we can see that "Burnout 3" was just the beginning. "Revenge" Takes one of the most amazing games a step further. The brilliance comes from a combination of all factors being perfect. That includes graphics, gameplay, sound (Some good music on there) and longetivity.

Even if you don't like racing games, you will be missing out dearly by not getting this. It's one of the most addictive games ever.

3.0 out of 5 stars Burnout Revenge 12 Sep 2006
By sn123
If you own Burnout 3: Takedown, you won't find much difference between this and that. The most noticable difference, in terms of gameplay, is that your car doesn't spin agressively out of control every time you hit a vehicle, no matter which way it is travelling, oh no. In Burnout Revenge, you get points added to your Burnout meter each time you crash into a vehicle moving in the same direction as you (i.e, a vehicle infront), but you're car does 'burnout' if you hit an oncoming car.
As usual, the game doesn't feature any real named cars, but names such as Sports 1 (can't remember the exact names off the top of my head)

Like all the other burnout games, Revenge features Crash mode, which I find the most entertaining mode in the game, but you can obviously also opt for Multiplayer, race etc.

In terms of soundtracks and playlists, there are a few good numbers on there, including fall out boy, but quite a poor remix of the doors' "break on through".

Overall: 3/5
