Ok, I know I'm 8 years too late here, but sheesh, this game blew my manbewbs off! Everything is perfect (except the amount of trafic which is highly annoying). The soundtrack is spot on IMO, and never have I played such an all round polished game. The driving dynamics just feel right, and when you add the takedown element it just works. Had to vent, then consult ebay...

Its a very pick up and play game, but also one you can loose a few hours to. Damn EA's smart purchasing of software houses! I feel guilty for loving an EA game so much.

I liked BO3 very much also, I agree with most of your points about the game except for the soundtrack,..not really my kinda music and it was a little annoying after a while. Overall though BO3 is definetly a great pick up and play racing game and it is pretty fun on XBL as well.

Yea I agree, the game is one of the best racing games I have ever played. Unfortunately, I could not stand the music... lol

IMO for single player, Burnout 2: Point of Impact is better than Burnout3, mainly because it has cool original music rather than EA-ified crap.

Great game, lousy soundtrack. I love ripping my own soundtracks onto the Xbox. ;)

QFT

I pretty much stopped playing BO3 after beating all 100 of the crash zones in single player. The races in the game are absolutely annoying. BO3 is far less fair than 2 was. There are several races where you have to drive absolutely perfectly or else there is no chance you will win. I remember in some face off matches I had to take out the opponent car no fewer than 10 times to be able to beat him, but if he took me out once it was all over. This was never the case in the second game. I only keep it around now for those times when my friends come over and we play party crash or road rage. Those are tons of fun.

I loved the music in Burnout 3 but to each his own. In case anyone here doesn't have it yet, it's now a "Platinum classic" ($19.99) and the EA store is offering a free shipping code on their website for it.

BO3 is the one of the best arcade racers out hands down, although I like Midnight Club 3 better because of tuning and customizing features. MC3 is a very awesome game IMO but the graphics are still a little lame.

I didn't like MC3 because it only caters to riceboys, not actual fast cars.

ROFL!!!! That was awesome. Of course that Cobra would smoke a Civic or Cavi, no crap. But I'm more into style and imports have domestics beat hands down. :D

You don't think the 05 Mustang is stylish?

I can't stand import "style". Such as the tapered poop look of the 350Z.

05 mustang kicks ass

still tho i enjoy tuner games for customization fun, even if i would never be caught dead in the cars in real life. tokyo extreme racer series was excellent, im hoping MC3 is like that (havent played it yet)

Haha, that page is awesome. I really love the 05 mustangs, if i could only have one car for the rest of my life the 05's would be it. Can't wait to see the new cobra :eek:

Yeah, the 05 Mustang is pretty hot (GT) but most imports are 10x better looking (than domestics). Too many favs to list. I own a 02 Civic and am putting a body kit on it right now, it's going to look awesome. Can't wait to get it back next week.

Are you putting stickers on it too and a 12" exhaust pipe? =)

I personally can't stand the look of pretty much any import. Especially riced out cars. The guys driving them act like they're into "performance" when their cars are just turds with no performance at all. A Civic is an economy car, built for gas mileage. It is not a performance car and I just don't understand why people modify them. Why not start with an American V8? 4 and 6 cylinder imports will never make **** for torque, which is what counts at the stoplight.

Did you know that with less than $4k you can build on a stock Mustang to produce over 600HP at the rear wheels and do 10's at the track? Try that with a jap car. The "but they don't handle good" argument is null too, since the 05 Mustang will destroy any Integra or other ricer car on the corners as well as stopping.

I agree with you on the performance, you gotta spend some major bucks to get something like a Skyline or Supra tricked out and up to speed but on style, imports and euros kick domestics in the arse. Oh yeah, stickers add about 10 to 15 HP in case you didn't know lol :D. I just prefer the looks of an import or euro tuner over any muscle or domestic.
