If you realistic physics, real cars and "real" racing then don't get this game. If your the kind of person that enjoys nothing more then seeing a luxury super car crash into a wall whilst taking out other cars in doing so, then this is the game for you.
I've had this game on PC since launch, before the official release date since I bought it direct from EA games. Single player has the problem of becoming a bore if played frequently, multi player adds team based events mixing up racing with stunts and a variety challenges.
Even today the graphics look full of detail even when being compared to more recent releases, motion blur adds the illusion of more speed adding to the risk when using boost to take the lead.
Crashing is a core element of this game, when you do inevitable crash you get a cinematic view of your car as it falls apart, the twist here is that you can ease your car into other opponents. Around every corner theres something new to collide with, thats if you make it round at all since there are many other road users to avoid.
Being an open world racing game Burnout gives you many routes to choose from, both a benefit and a downfall since you may find yourself racing the same route multiple times with a few different roads added in. This game is not intended to be played for hours on end, its more suited to 30 minute bursts in order to avoid grinding your way through.
