This review is from: Burnout 3: Takedown (Xbox) (Video Game)
When a couple of my friends twisted my arm into playing this, I thought, "Another driving game, how good can it be, really?" This question was answered for me extremely quickly: it's blindingly good. This game really gets the adrenalin pumping. The action is hectic in the extreme, the handling is super tight, the physics is sublime and the illusion of speed is possibly the best I've ever seen. Enough to reduce you to a quivering ball of pleasure in no time at all. Small caveat to the faint hearted: this game rewards dangerous and aggressive driving, especially taking out other drivers, (as the name "Takedown" would indicate), so if you tend towards considered pacifism in your game-playing, you might want to give this a wide berth. For the rest of us this is one of those rare games where the taking part is so good that winning becomes of secondary importance.
