The third time is the charm for this outrageously good arcade racer.

Slow load times ; EA soundtrack can be tiring ; Always wanting more

I'd like to start out by saying that Burnout 3: Takedown is the Best Racing Game Ever Made. You might feel this is somewhat presumptuous, especially considering my previous candidate for Best Racing Game Ever Made was the arcade...

I feel the need?The need for speed!" This catchphrase from Top Gun summed up the continual drive of any adrenaline junkie: the desire to constantly go faster and faster, pushing the envelope for the largest thrill possible. Well, 18 years later, EA's...
