Burnout Legends (PSP)
You can barely move for racing games on the PSP, which wouldnt normally be a problem except almost all of them are excellent. Its not a launch title, but Burnout Legends is looking like being an obvious must-have for anyone whos ever wanted to be a dangerous driver but been held back by a social conscience.
Relatively little has been seen of the game so far, bar a short playable demo which demonstrated a highly impressive level of graphic detail that makes it look just like Burnout 3: Takedown. In fact, the game will, rather like Ridge Racer, be a sort of "best of" compilation of features from all the previous Burnout games, including tracks from Burnout 1, 2 and 3.
A total of nine gameplay modes are promised, including the infamous Crash, Pursuit, Burning Lap, Road Rage, Eliminator, Race, Time Attack, Legends Face-Off and Legends GP. Four of these (Race, Crash, Pursuit and Road Rage) can be played in wireless multiplayer mode with up to four people. One other interesting element is that each game will ship with five cars out of a random selection of twenty-five -- with the other twenty only being unlocked as you play opponents in multiplayer.
To be honest, a port of one of the previous games would have been fine for most people, but this looks like being a lot more than just that. -- Harrison Dent

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!).
Graphics: These are very good for the most part. The environments look very crisp and the cars look great (apart from the sport class for some reason!?) but there is some minor pop up issues and there is some quite hefty slowdown especially during road rage events where everything is going to fast and too many cras are slamming eachother at once but overall very good. 4/5
Sound: Great engine sounds plus great smashing effects but the punk lite soundtrack really does start to annoy you after a while even though there are some rare beauties in there. The main issue is the 2 second pause between each track but overall very good. 3/5
Gameplay: This is the core of burnout and as you would suspect is spectacular. The takedowns are superband the sense of speed is incredible! I love all the events barring (GASP!) road rage! I think this is the biggest let down. It is far too hard to score a takedown on cars becuase if you fly past a car (which happens ALOT) then you have to slow down to let other cars past allowing you to take them down but you have then lost your momentum and the other cars just slow down too so you cant take them out! ANNOYING! 5/5
Orignality: A great idea merging all the tracks from burnout 1, 2 and 3 but it does feel like you are just playing burnout 3 again (no bad thing) with added tracks and a pursuit mode. 4/5
Lifespan: This will last forever unless it gets too hard (which it does) so you break your psp! 4/5
You have a big selection of cars from a nippey compact to a large slow SUV to a extreamly quick F1 car. You will also have in crash mode a selection of big crash vehicles from a van to a fire truck! The race modes are, Race, Time attack, Road rage, pursuit and crash.
This is an amazing game and i suggest you buy it!
And i can honestly say that it didn't dissapoint.
The intro and menu are similar to last years Burnout 3:Takedown and the usual selection of cars,from the weedy compact class to the sports and super classes. So all of you that used the Super Assassin will be pleased to see their baby included in this version. As soon as the game loads (some of the fasted loading screens on the PSP) it is clear that this is special.
The frame-rate and sense of speed is unreal,so those that were dissapointed with MC3 Dub Edition will breath a sigh of relief.
Overall the game is basically Burnout 3 with bits from the first 2 games mixed in,and it's awesome!!
