Hardcore Gamer: While it looks like Criterion isn't completely abandoning the Burnout series, it's clear there's no plans to produce another game in the series.
Wonder what they'll do next.
They're focusing on butchering the NFS series some more.
Most Wanted is incredible! Best racing game I've played this gen by a mile! Pun intended.
i really want to see a road rash from them, its totally up their alley
I prefer Burnout Paradise to NFS: Most Wanted.
Most wanted sucks. Cops don't even chase you unless you slam them. There are no cops in the MP mode. Thus making the title Most Wanted with cops on the cover very misleading. I am considering to sue for false advertising.
whatever EA tells them to do
BOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! Quit letting EA force yall to do NFS.
Burnout:Paradise was such a terrific game. Loved every minute of it.
I loved it so much I platinumed in it haha
I was really looking forward to seeing what they would have in store for a next gen Burnout game. the leap from burnout revenge to paradise just amazed me. Hope they make one at some point in the next gen timeline. And i also think they should sit down and think about Black some more. Played that game over and over again when it came out on PS2.
Well that sucks..
The world shall fall to Seventh Wave......
Im not sure if another Black would even be good..i think that game was perfect for last gen consoles but if they do another one its going to disappoint...is just going to feel like another shooter.
Black was interesting, but there were some quirks. Namely a story that made no sense and headshots were not one hit kills, which was weird.
What are you talking about? Headshots were one shot kills, other than fully armoured soldiers and the story was pretty straightforward (A soldier recounting his memories leading to the events at hand.) Battlefield 3 pretty much did the same thing concept wise.
I stand by my comments. And, to back it up: http://www.psxextreme.com/s... Excerpts from review: Shooting: This style of combat wouldn't be so bad if the AI was somewhat competent, but it's simply dreadful. A typical firefight goes something like this: Shoot a guy in the face Guy falls down Guy gets up Shoot guy in face again Guy falls down again Guy gets up again Shoot guy in face again...Repeat as necessary (and it will be necessary to repeat because it takes an insane number of bullets to take down a single soldier) Nonsensical story:The story is told through brief, hard to follow FMV snippets between levels, and it really doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Toss in a completely disappointing (and obvious) cliff-hanger ending, and the story is best described as forgettable. Don't get me wrong, I liked the game, but it had flaws that made it a forgettable fps.
Yep I agreed with that review, Black was an amazing game to look and hear, but to actually play it was bland, the level design was predictable and straight forward, fire fights went on for far to long especially towards the end, and the game never really offered you much tactical options to engage the enemy. It was always wait shoot,wait shoot. And all of that would have been fine if the game had any kind of multiplayer, but strangely it didn't which is mind boggling, it honestly would have been the difference between the ok game that it was to the outstanding game it could have been. Nice game but totally forgettable, especially when you imagine it without the pretty visuals, an improved sequel would be welcomed tho.
Noooo I want Black 2 :(
Black was an awesome and hard FPS, the best on PS2.
Thank god for less need for speed. Definitely need something new, need for speed lost its shine many games ago.
Dammit man, i was Soooooooooooo Looking Forward To a next gen Byrnout & Black, i Loved the first one the graphics were insane for its time. & Deserves a reboot. I feel the detail on the guns in that game are still even better than most gun graphics on current COD games.
That sucks.. wish they'd re-release 'Burnout 3: Takedown' and 'Burnout: Revenge' on HD PSN/XBL
Ummm.. You realize Burnout revenge is already on 360 and PS3 right?
They should make a new Black. Or at least make an HD version of it. And they definitely need a new Burnout game. Why not make the games people want?
Oh I was under the impression people wanted Burnout Crash. haha I kid I kid
I enjoyed Black. Too bad Black 2 is a no go.
WTF. They must hate money.
They said they had no plans for NFS or Burnout and I say good. They broke the NFS series. I can't wait to see what Ghost manage. I hope it comes somewhat close to what Black Box offered. :(
