This is the second Burnout to venture onto the psp promising to enable you to have the carnage, speed and mayhem of the previous games whilst on the go. Does it work? , well below is my opinion of how EA faired.
Due to this game being a sequel i was dubious as to how good it would be, would it be a money grabbing venture or would it bring burnout to another exciting level?
Well as with all burnout games you get to race around the city streets like a maniac hurtling through and weaving in and out of traffic filled roads. The more daring you are the more your boost bar fills. So get as close as you can to oncoming cars without hitting them and you are rewarded with some boost!
When your boost bar is full unleash the speed and keep your eyes open as its one hell of a ride!
Graphically, yes its a bit better than the first. But apart from that not too many changes.
Now the game itself has the same race missions as before.
Takedown - A not so leisurely drive around the city trying to take out as many of your fellow racers as possible within a time limit. Oh and there are no rules, Just hit bash and manouvere them into walls, oncoming traffic, or each other. The problem being is that they will do teh same to you. And take enough damage to your vehicle and its game over. So whilst being a maniac be controlled......
Crash - Basically drive as fast as possible and cause as much destruction as possible when driving straight into busy roads! That pretty much says it all!
Race - An obvious one this, race from point A to point B. Get there before everybody else and you win! Ram, dodge and obliterate your opponents to get there first.
The game has many engine classes as before, all showing you faster and better vehicles as you progress. But be warned it gets harder as you move on up. Each class has its own events and cars to unlock so lots of things to get your teeth into.
You can play multiplayer with friends, but both of you need to own the game this time round. Unlike the original game which allowed game sharing. One copy ment you could still play with others. Not the case now, which is a big dissappointment.
Another missing point from the original is the pursuit mode, this put you in control of a police car and your objective was to ram the opponent enough times to stop them. But done through busy roads etc. Not that i mind, i was particularly keen on it anyway.
Overall i would say buy the first game as opposed to this. If you already own the first game , then maybe consider looking at this one.
I am quite happy with the first and would probably suggest buying this if you are a die hard fan of the series!
Burnout Dominator is the sequel to Burnout Legends which was a very successful PSP game. It promises new game modes & better play, but is it any good or better than the original?
I'll start with the game. You race on the roads of towns & cities which aren't real but are brimming with traffic. You have up to four opponenets in each race all wanting to win the race by dodging the traffic & ramming you off the road. This forms the unique aspesct of the game as you are able to ram you oppenent from road (this is called a takedown).
The game plays very similarly to the original with maybe slightly better graphics. There are diferent modes of play. Some where you race. Others where you simply dodge traffic whilst getting as close to it as possible. Plus others where you ram as many cars off the road as you can. Pursuit mode from the first game is missing though & I liked this one.
The Single player game has lots of different engine classes, all of which become more difficult as you progress through them. Each class has all of the different sorts of races & it's own cars to unlock. It is a challenge to complete the game 100%.
the multiplayer is really good fun. Online racing against people over the internet which wasn't on the origial has been added to this game. Also you can still race against your friends but they must have a copy. For some reason the game sharing option from the first game is missing. Bit of a shame that is.
Over all this is a really good racing game. Well worth a look even if you have got the original. If you like racing games you should definitely give one of them a go.
This is a great game nothing else to it...
okay maybe there is a little more to it, if you are expecting an open type world like burnout paradise then sorry the psp just doesnt have the power for that.
This is more like burnout takedown on the ps2 or xbox you start a race with a certain goal takedown 5 racers, finish in a certain time etc..... but thats no bad thing.
Graphically this game is amazing for how it runs you could easliy mistake it for a ps2 game and one thing to note it is quick with a capital Q.
Gamplay wise it works well everything is responsive however after a little while you do find yourself getting a little finger cramp.
If you havent played a burnout before this is well worth a buy your in for treat, if you have played a burnout on a prevous format then you know what to expect a great game but with nothing new to add to the series.
With that said that doesnt mean that this game should be over looked just bought with caution.
This is the first Burnout game that I ever really played, and I only got it because there was a BOGOF offer at GAME and I wanted to buy Wipeout Pulse. But I was pleasantly surprised to find myself hooked on the game once I started playing it.
The gameplay is fast and exciting, with various modes to keep you busy. I've got no complaint with the graphics, they do the job quite well. The general physics of the game seem to be pretty good - there's no excessive air for no reason or anything like that. I personally really like the music that was chosen for the game, but I also know some people who hate it, so it depends on your music taste.
(EDIT: The music in the game is predominantly rock/metal music, with some indie thrown in here and there, along with 4 versions of Avril Lavigne - Girlfriend, including versions in Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, and Spanish)
The game has just the right level of difficulty. You'll occasionally find yourself replaying a level over and over to try and get anywhere, but most of the time you'll get a bronze/silver medal easily and the challenge is to get the gold.
Now so far, everything I've said has been pretty positive. But I can't give this game the full 5 stars. It's brought down too much by loading times. EVERYTHING takes so long to load. It takes ages to load the races, and then it has to load the menu back when you've finished! And you would think that if you restart the race half way through, you wouldn't have to wait for it to load again, right? Wrong. It takes less than usual, but it shouldn't even be necesary at all!
But that's my only problem with the game, so if you're a patient person, you'll love the game! If you're impatient, you'll probably have my view of the game - it's brilliant, but slightly irritating at the same time.
I love the Burnout series and so I picked up this game on the PSP game. The game is very good and is lots of fun. The game can also be picked up on the cheap now making it great value for money. You have to try and destroy the cars while racing down the streets. I don't really like this style and prefer the latest game.
The graphics are very good and are some of the best I have seen on the PSP system. The game also has no slowdown which makes it a great game that runs very smooth. The controls are also very easy meaning everybody will be able to play.
The gameplay is very good and it kept me hooked until I had completed the game. However, once I had finished it, the game didn't have much replay value and I didn't play it again, trading it in a couple of weeks later. It is very long so this won't be a problem. The game is very hard so it will take a long time to complete. There are lots of cars and levels to complete.
Overall, the game is very good and is a must buy for ever owner of the PSP system.
Burnout: Dominater is a very popular game for the sony psp, from a very successful line of racing games. It has many different types of cars and many different races. I have owned the game for around a month but I still have not completed it, because of this I don't have the largest experience of it, but I will do the best I can.
It's not because I have not played the game that has stopped me completing it, because I have played it alot, it's the amount of races that are included in the game. The game has 7 different series. Within each series there are around 10-20 different races, 5 different cars, and 10 different objectives to complete.
The gameplay is great is burnout, the best past is easily the ability to be able to take out opponents in many different and explosive ways. It's the part of the game that has made the burnout series almost the most successful racing series, coming seccond only in my opinion to the need for speed series.
Burnout is a great action packed, fast and speedy game. It is in my opinion one of the best racing games out there for the psp. It has been out now for around a year so the price has dropped significantly since its release date to a meager £10, I suggest you buy it.
Burnout Dominator challenges gamers to face off against a series of hot-blooded rivals in brutal tests of aggressive driving techniques where performing burnouts gives you the advantage and multiplies your score potential.
