i got it for XBox now, brilliant game and i've been playing ever since i got back. One thing though, on the back it's marked next to custom soundtracks, but i can't play any of the songs that are on my xbox hard-drive.does this mean that when it says custom it means you can choose what songs you want to play that come with the game? cos i want to listen to maroon 5 while speeding down the road ramming rivals into walls sad.gif

Bought it today, finally.

Wow. Best game.

Played it all afternoon with my friends. Absolutely f*cking amazing. 'Nuff said. But I knew that from yesterday when I played at my friend's, but still.

My friend got it on Friday, I went up to his, and we played it. I f*cking love this game so much.

The soundtrack rocks - I can't believe my favourite group, Sahara Hotnights, are on it. Damn straight.

However, I have to say I f*ckign despise EA. F*cking dickheads. They sh*tted up the XBox Live, really bad.

• Their servers go down every few minutes.
• PAL/NTSC incompatibility.
• Joining servers fails, a lot.
• Takes bloody ages to sign into their servers.
• It takes ages to update unnecessary things in the game lobby.

All these things are EA's fault, and could easily be fixed with a patch and better servers. They better f*cking do so.

I'm getting it as soon as I can though, mind you.

So if I have no intrest in xbox live, this game is pretty much perfect?

Flawless.

I'm sure I'll get used to the way they've messed up Live anyway, and they'll hopefully fix most of it.

Yeah I persuaded myself to buy it and even though its been a couple I hours I haven't had a chance to play it. Little brothers what can you do lol

@ Em - Yeah the EA logo on the game gave me a bit of a scare but if its just the Xbox live portion then I don't care as I haven't got Xbox Live. Pfft trust EA to do something wrong but I am glad to hear that the rest of the game is flawless and I havne't even played it yet.

This game pwns, Ahhh the art of crash. My higest score in a crash is 2.5 Million! and i've got the $70 Mil bus. I also love the slow-mo takedowns, and seeing the cars getting demented. That DJ gets anyoing, anyway i would recommened this game, Best Racing Game Ever. I can't beleive they did all this on Renderware!

Soundtrack is good too!

Yeah its awesome. Maybe if a few of use have digi cams, we can get a little crash record thing set up. e.g, one of us says a crash junction with their record, and the other has to break it, but bring us a pic. I dunno lol, it would be cool.

Heres the only high record on pic, im sure i can beat it..

Damn damn damn. I went to Fry's on Saturday and they said they'd have it in by Monday, so I put in a raincheck. So it's Tuesday and I call and they said they won't have it in for at least a week. What f*ckers.

A few questions about this before I decide to get it.

1. Is there a free ride mode at all?
2. Any really long races, or being able to set how many laps in a race this time?
3. Controls the same as Burnout 2 on xbox?

I'll try and answer your questions but I've only just started playing it so I might be wrong.

1. Well there is a mode where you can choose your car, what track, what mode etc. Is that what you mean?

2. Umm there are some championship races but so far they havne't been too long as the action just keeps coming.

3. Yes I am pretty sure its the same as felt at home playing it for the first time. I was a avid Burnout 2 fan on Xbox so I am pretty sure its the same.

I ment like a city or chunk of a city where you could just cruise around.

I got it wrong about the Firetruck. It has 6 bars for speed not 3.

As you your questions..

No there is no free-roaming mode.

Umm yeah there is long races. But with Road Rage you can just keep going and going.

Controls on the X-Box are..

Right Trigger to go, A to boost and Left Trigger to brake.

I dont know if thats the same but hope it helped. smile.gif

Wow, this game rocks!

So far I'm at 30+% and around 8 hours of playing tounge.gif Today is the second day I've had it.

I love how cinematic some of the crashes look, it's spectacular.

I'm gonna go crazy, I still haven't got it yet. hopefully tonight, especially since it's my birthday.

I also heard EA released a small update, and the Live play is now a little less buggy, but it's still dodgy. I'll just have to see.

EmSixTeen yearns for Burnout 3..
