This games rocks !. I've owned it for 1 week and I've been playing it non stop. Its really quick and gets the heart pumping when the boost kicks in. I've unlocked all of the crash modes and a few extra cars. Its not easy to unlock face off modes though in the later stages as you need to win gold in all the tracks in the group. Overall though its an awsome game. Highly recommended.
Just a quick question - in the first version the traffic was 'scripted' (The traffic always started in the same spot and followed the same path unless it had to avoid you) - is it still the same in this version?? It used to bug me that I could work out a pattern and always use it at the start because I knew for a fact where all the traffic was... Thanks!!!!
I gotta admit, Burnout is one of a select few games that I play better when i'm drunk (quake's the other that springs to mind); must have something to do with the relaxing effect of beer or something; so instead of being all jumpy on the edge of you're seat going oh-my-god-i-almost-hit-that-guy, you're just chilled back and wouldn't mind sideswiping every second car.
I had the first, but took it back due to longeivity (?) reasons; but now that money isn't as much of an issue as before (and that this one's improved), I can't wait till this one comes out.
I've been playing it ever since I bought it. Been about 2 weeks now. It's a really addictive game. It reminds me of the good old days playing outrun on the old C64. A nice change from intense simulator type games like GT3 and V8 supercars.
I wasn't going to buy another game until GTA:VC, but I'm seriously considering B2 now. I haven't found anyone who has a bad word to say about it. Hmm. The trouble with full-time work is that it gives you a lot of money to buy games with, but leaves you with little time to play them. All work and no play(station) makes soulhead a dull boy.
