That game (Burn Out 3) makes me want to buy one of those consoles.. I saw a review of the game on TV. It got 10/10. I was laughing out loud as I saw the cars driving at lunatic speeds, crashing and getting smashed to little pieces, flying around.

I like doing psycheouts.

Sigh, I wish NFS would go back to its roots and get away from the shitty ricing fad and produce a game with all the high end sports cars but the cool and utter destruction of burn out 3 and whatnot. That would be godly.

Soon as I leave town, defently picking up a copy of BO3.

Hmmm, it's been praised here, it's been praised on Penny Arcade, it's been praised by people at school. I'm really due for a new game, but I'm running low on both money and time.

I suppose I should at least rent it.

This game really really rocks. Maybe one of the best racing game ever, alongside with NFS underground.

The multiplayer-modes are happy happy happy, joy joy joy

This has been added to my "reason to get an cockbox"-list, next to Soul Caliber 2 and Ninja Gaiden

Awww there is no police, I was expecting to get chased. I feel disapointed but the crashing is wonderful.

The NFS8:U2 demo with it was very amusing in a oh my god this sucks really bad just like the last two kind of way.

Review...

Fun but ultimately it's going to be boring.  Good rental material.

Grapics weren't so good, but that's a fair trade off for speed.

Sound was OK, but the four songs and five DJ sayings got annoying.

The gameplay was very fun, but ultimately boils down to smacking people around.  Which can be fun, but not for hours at a go.

All in all I think that this is a perfect party/waste five minutes type of game. IF I get it, I'm going to get it used.

Four songs? More like 49 songs. Impressive considering there is not one rap song and they even included one that's melodic death metal. Go EA, too bad the rest is mostly punk rock and stuff, feh. DJ is very repetative though, looks like they were trying to make it feel like the SSX of car racing. They even mention DJ Atomica from SSX3 heh.

Anyone else dare play the NFS8 demo that's in the extra section?

Oh, I beleive you about the number of songs.  For some reason though, I kept hearing the same four over and over and over and over and over...

Yeah because it changes songs every new screen so you only hear the few while racing. I really hate the EA trax thing that pops up and hogs my viewing area though.
