Burnout 2: Point of Impact (Xbox)

 

Lately, the driving genre has been getting more and more crowded. Across all platforms, we're starting to see a lot more racing games, and each one has tried to do something different. Burnout 2's take on the genre is one of outright speed. The Xbox...

Let's get one thing out of the way right now: Burnout 2 is no driving sim. It has about as much in common with real-world driving as Tony Hawk's Pro Skater has to do with real-world skateboarding. Anyone looking for the next Gran Turismo should simply...

It seems like only yesterday that I heard the phrase, “best crashes ever”. This was the infamous line given to Acclaim's original Burnout for the PS2. Sure the game featured...

Burnout 2: Point of Impact -- Developer's Cut

 

Solid as a rock, faster than most -- your eyeballs are about to bleed.

Excellent visuals; super-fast driving; tight controls; cool physics; challenging and fun; online rankings

Lacks online play; multiplayer modes are secondary in importance; weak music

Burnout 2: Point of Impact

 

There is no other racing game in the world like this. Hands down, it's the best racer you can buy for the GameCube. The full review inside!

Amazing sense of speed ; Graphics and sound effects are uber-realistic ; Gameplay and crashes will keep you coming back for more ; New modes add tons of replay value

Can't save crash replays ; Traffic is sometimes predictable and questionable

There is so much more to this game than can be mentioned here. The police pursuit mode, custom series cars, two-player races, four-player Crash mode, and some of the most hair-raising close-calls you’ll ever see in a game. You’ll be so addicted that...

Everyone loves car crashes. As long as everyone walks away safe and there's no insurance to be paid, that is. Big car pile-ups in movies, demolition derbies, all that fun stuff.

Looking to kill some time with some friends? See who can get the best crash. This game's great for a weekend for some quick instant fun. Pop it in and knock yourself out. However... it is fairly shallow as a racing game, so I'd only recommend buying...

Burnout 2: Point of Impact - ps2

 

Admittedly, people who play Burnout 2 will say this is the game that the original should have been, and while Point of Impact may seem like a deluxe version of that original, there is plenty of new content and game modes to make this game stand on its...

Criterion Studios has come a long way in the past few years in regards to actually developing videogames. They haven't released a whole lot of titles so far, choosing rather to merely assist in development via their well-known Renderware engine, but of...

No matter how you choose to play Burnout 2 ? Championship, Chase, or Crash -- the ultra-responsive gameplay will shine through as the pinnacle of arcade-racing perfection. Like the Crazy Taxi games, it is possible to weave in and out of traffic, tight...
