Burnout 3
« on: September 08, 2004, 11:43:32 pm »
BUY THIS GAME NOW! I got it yesterday and it is so damn good that it almost makes me cry. It's by far the best racer around, and it's great fun even if you usually hate driving games. Gorgeous graphics, ridiculously fast, brilliant opponent AI (they'll actually try to nudge you into oncoming traffic and obstacles); INSERT INTO yabbse_messages (ID_MSG, ID_TOPIC, ID_MEMBER, subject, posterName, posterEmail, posterTime, posterIP, smiliesEnabled, modifiedTime, modifiedName, body, icon, attachmentSize, attachmentFilename) VALUES and not to mention some absolutely jaw-droppingly amazing slow-motion crashes. You take out an opponent mid-race, and the game will slow down to almost a hault, the camera will woosh round to give you a look at the havok you've just caused, then spin back behind your car so you can carry on racing. IT'S SO DAMN COOL!!

Ridiculously fast you say?  Fast as, say, F-Zero GX?  That's probably my favorite racer...  Really nice levels, controls were great, and you went over 1000 km/h most of the time.
If Burnout is anything like that, I might pick it up some time.

Yes, Turtle.  Even low res screen caps at IGN.com look to be just as fast, if not faster.  

I'm going to rent before buying.. ok, I'm just going to rent.  I got a con coming up and I"m going to borrow about 500 bucks for it..  that's a lot of money.. :P

Burnout 2 was pretty cool, does 3 still have the mode where your objective is to cause as much damage as possible? I wish there was a PC version, blah @ using my ps2 for racing.

Well, I'll rent the Xbox one some time.  I might start using Gamefly or a service similar to it...  I love Netflix to death so it seems like something like that for games would be a good idea.

Yep, and it's even better now. You can play the crash mode with a friend split-screen and try to both cause as much havok as possible.

Yes, over 100 of them, both single and co-op play.

Ah well...  Finally got F-Zero back from a friend, so until I can afford to at least rent Burnout...  I'll be visiting Captain Falcon for a while.

It's by far the best racer around
I challange that!

Games supporting my argument:
 - Live For Speed
 - Need for speed : Porsche
 - Nascar 2003 (raceing season)
 - Grand Prix Legends
 - Grand Prix 3
 - Stunts
 - Streetrod
 - Richard Burns Rally
 - Collin McRae Rally 2
 - NetKar

It depends what side you are looking at it from. I've played the original burnout and that was hella fun. I loved that game.

There's something primal about the concept of smashing shit up, isn't there?  I think that that's why teh Burnout series as a whole is pouplar.
