Default Burnout 3

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.

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.
