Why We Need A Back-To-Basics Burnout

James O'Connor of MMGN: Need for Speed: Most Wanted is beautiful. It’s fast, it’s well designed, and it’s got all the crunching metal and screeching tires I love in games like this. It’s probably the best racer of the year so far, in fact. But it’s not Burnout 3: Part 2, and really, all I’ve ever wanted is Burnout 3: Part 2. Why do I want a rehash of a 2004 game when there are so many awesome new racing games to enjoy? (Burnout 3: Takedown, Need for Speed Most Wanted, PS3, Xbox 360)

As much as I love Burnout Paradise, I would certainly not say no to Criterion returning to its Burnout roots.

Need for Speed Most Wanted is a nice game, but not great. It feels like it wants to be Burnout Paradise 2, but is not as good as that classic; and I think the cop chases were more fun in the original Most Wanted (It's a damn shame that game never came to PS3).

I really miss the exhilarating circuit racing from the early Burnout games. What I'd really love is a mashup of Burnout 2, Takedown and Revenge - and the ability for the player to tailor which options to turn on and off (traffic checking for example,or setting traffic density).

I want crash mode!

Also does Criterion just hate allowing car customization? I have to drive through a repair shop to change color? That is just bad.

Also a return to the Euro style music of the first 2 games please, none of that US crap thx.

I am currently loving the free time I spend with the new Most Wanted, but I agree with the author of this article.

I would really enjoy an old school Burnout. Revenge was my favorite.

A decent spyhunter game made by Criterion would be a blast to play, I am sure. They do the arcade driving games so well, and always make them a blast to play.

No spyhunter, no nfs or any other crap (including Paradise).
Just give us a straight up Burnout, ass kicking arcade racer that emulates & expands on what then 1st 3 did on PS2. I think Burnout 2 was the highlight of the series, but I understand why others would choose B3, but that is irrelavent, because the series lost the Burnout spirit & soul after pt. 3, bit by bit, until Paradise showed up totally souless.
