Fed up with the "realism" of the Gran Turismo series?
on 4 December 2001
Whilst in some respects the Gran Turismo series is amazingly realistic, what it lacks are spectacular crashes, high paced action and a less serious attitude to racing. Burnout delivers these three in abundance yet it is still a fantastic game for the more serious racer.
The sense of speed the game produces is incredible - you really need split second reactions to survive. Even though it's an arcade game, if you crash you'll lose vital seconds (and because the opponents are always on your tail - the only real flaw in the game) and you'll drop places.
This is a must buy for all driving enthusiasts. You'll be left awestruck at the speed and pace of this game. It's certainly a challenge, but this broadens the gameplay. You can play this game whether you want to mess about with your mates or be ultra serious.
Burnout simulates every aspect of driving that other games have always missed out. It looks and sounds fantastic, and offers hours of entertainment. I don't think this game will ever become dull or worn out.
