Gamespot gave it a 9.5. Now thats not as easy to get as you think it is.

smile.gif Got it! (it's a job thing.. )

Anyway, had it about a week and can say without a doubt it well a truly deserves the 9.5 score. As soon as it starts and you see the quality of layout/presentation even just in the menus etc.. you just know it's going to be good. I didn't like the first one too much due to the stupid checkpoint timer on races, but luckily it's not the case with Takedown.

The game is huge! at least 173 events wow.gif (maybe some hidden ones as well) I've completed 15 gold medals and unlocked about 14 cars and it only says 7% complete.

Frame rate is phenomenal considering the amount of detail, sense of speed is plain scary!! blink.gif

I'm about to make a compilation video of crashes.. I'll post it soon..

ive had the xbox version since last thurday (aaaaah - the advantages of having a modded xbox and Bittornado biggrin.gif ) and i cant put it down

quite simply, it is the best racing game ive EVER PLAYED!

it is soooo good, in fact - whoever DOES NOT get this game for whatever reason simply needs a smack over the head - everything about it is fantastic! (Except for that bloody DJ 'Striker')

BUY IT BUY IT BUY IT!

(in fact, it is so good i might even buy the PS2 version brand new for online play - id get the XBOX version but i cant go online wiv my xbox which is a shame!)

Hm, I might just pick it up this weekend, since all you people are saying it's that damn good. It looks f*cking amazing, but sometimes games with all that hype don't live up to it.

And from the size it sounds, yeah, sounds worth it.

We didnt hear that wink.gif .

Anyway, yeah I will be getting this as soon as I have the cash. I am a bit short for cash ATM so I will be doing the rounds for money that people owe me, that might cover it. I have been looking forward to this for a while, cant wait.

Yeah please get a vid Homer. And would you do the scary sense of speed thing for a few secs? I want to see what i got coming... lol.

Lucky twats!

@ A-J - I believe that your car does get damage this time around. Or is that only on Road Rage and Online mode?

I plyed it online and the damage was great.

Of course I am getting this game, it will keep my busy while I wait for San Andreas and Gran Turismo 4. Too bad it isn't coming out for our beloved GameCube. sneaky2.gif

Looks amazing, but I'm not too into racing games. I'm definitely renting this game though, but racing games aren't worth buying. I found that out when I bought Project Gotham Racing 2...its a great game, but I'm just not a racing fan.


You writing a review when you get it Hell no?

Me! Oh, me, me!
I am.

Eventually.

See, due to lack of money I generally only buy one game every two to three months. Evil Genius comes out at the end of this month and I'd rather buy that than Burnout 3... but I have Burnout 2, and believe me, I will pick up a copy of number three someday...

Ive been playing the crash part of the game. They added alot of new stuff, like there are multipliers and decreasers. Also if you get a certain amount of cars to crash you can explode you car its f*ckin cool. The racing is damn fun to, the takeout are wicked. Really fun game. smile.gif

why haven't they done a version for the Lamecube? seems strange that .....

my only theory was that its cos GC-Online isnt popular so they thought 'don't bother' but the single player mode is just as good but maybe i am wrong!

Got the game on Wednesday and I love it. It's a huge improvement over 2 which was already addictive as hell. Crash mode is even better than before. It took me a few tries to get used to the new features and how the money is much more realistic than before. It doesn't multiply it by how many cars are involved, it's changed to multiplier pickups which seemed wierd at first but once you're used to it you could never go back to the old way. Same thing with the aftertouch, adds loads of depth to the crashes and makes it much more skills-based than random. The game is worth $50 just for Crash mode alone, and Road Rage is just as fun. Seems like it'll last while, hopefully I'm right.

Just got my copy today. It's everything I was hopeing. Every possible aspect of Burnout 2 that could've been improved, has been. Ramming opponents into wall and dividers make me feel all warm and fuzzy. The psyche crash are cool, when the guy you're tailing freaks out and goes plowing into a wall. Graphics are incredible and no frame rate issues that I've noticed, what-so-ever.

Agreed. I of course have it now and im roughly 30% into it. I have been on it for ages today. There is just so much to do on it.

I got told that there is a NFSU2 demo in the extra's section. So im gonna check that out.

Maybe this should be the official topic for it now? Seeing as its out...

Ahh damn it.

But it was once confirmed that there was one. Guess not..

EDIT - I have the demo on mine. I think cos the game is just on PS2 its only with the PS2 version of BO3.

Are you playing it on X-BOX?
