4.0 out of 5 stars Great conversion, 20 Sept. 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Burnout Legends (PSP) (Video Game)
This is a great conversion of the popular series. You can expect to see tracks and cars from Burnout, Burnout 2 and last years Burnout 3. There are some problems; the smaller screen and resolution causes occasional issues when spotting on-coming obstacles. The game can also lock-up momentarily when skipping to the next music track (which unfortunately is cut from the same crass rock "EA Trax" style as Burnout 3 and other EA titles - just turn down the music volume). There's some clipping of textures and a little bit of slow down here and there during some replays and takedowns, and the detail level is slightly less - obviously. The graphics seem ever so slightly duller, but perhaps the developer decided to change the games colour palate as it has perhaps a more 'realistic' look than say, Burnout 3. Last but not least, some of the loading breaks can irritate - already a minor issue on the home consoles especially when re-starting an event- but its made worse by the PSPs loading issues. Still it's not as bad as some of the first generation of PSP games in this respect.
Despite all of that the plus points far weigh out the negative. The game zips along, all the features of its bigger brothers are here (it even includes "Pursuit" mode that didn't make Burnout 3). The game is as thoroughly playable and addictive as ever. The driving style had been distilled, refined and perfected by Burnout 3 and has been perfectly replicated here on the PSP. It looks amazing given this is a almost a perfect copy of a recent home console game and its running in the palm of your hand. With hundreds of separate challenges and events and enormous replay value this has to be in the top five 'must haves' for the PSP. Thoroughly recommended (just turn down the awful, awful music!).
