5.0 out of 5 stars twice as good on Gamecube, 21 Feb. 2003
This review is from: Burnout (GameCube) (Video Game)
Burnout on Gamecube dominates the driving genre. It has excellent Graphics and the courses layouts are all truly excellent. It has an amazing sense of speed and all runs smoothly, even if you are travelling at 150mph throgh a motorway full of cars, all as impressive as each other. Every car around you reflects it's surroundings realistically, but moving at such speeds often means that you do not have time to admire the awsome graphics.
Many people complained that the crash replays were just annoying, but a good crash looks incredible as you flip through the air at high speed, causing huge pileups as you go. At the end of the race, the game adds up the damage cost, and puts you on the 'worst drivers list' if yours is the highest.
So what is the point of burnout? Contrary to popular belief it is not just about crashing. It is a real racing game, with options for Championship, single race, head to head, time trial and Special. In Championship, you race a varying ammount of courses(usually 3) against 3 other cars, where you must finish in a set position. If you complete all three in under 4 attempts then you open up new courses and new modes of play. Single race is very similar yet it is just made for racing, not for opening up new courses etc. head to head is the multiplayer option and in time trial you race on your own to try to get the fastest time. As for special, you can open up 2 new modes of play from championship for it. Face off, where you race another, usualy faster car, and if you beat it you get it, and Survivor, where you must try to complete a race without crashing.
So, this just about sums Burnout up. It is an amazing game that is quite challenging for begginers, but experts will find it tough.
