Fast cars, fast soundtrack, and fast deaths make this a game for the adrenaline junkies.
With 18 tracks to race across, and 40 songs to listen to this game deserves to be in anyone's collection. You gain the ability to earn boost for your car by making your opponents crash in an impressive number of ways. However, you lose boost by getting yourself taken out, so keeping an eye on whose sneaking up behind you is important!
You unlock cars and new locations to race by winning events around the world. Such as 1 v 1 races against your rival, Road Rage races to see who takes down the most opponents, solo races where you've to beat the clock, and classic 3 stage races to see who the overall champion is.
If there's any downsides it's the AI being programmed to have unlimited boost in certain races.
While no longer online the game still has split screen racing, a feature sorely missed by many fans of today's racing genre. If any game deserves a remaster it's Burnout 3: Takedown.
Score: 8.5 (Great!)
