BNR: Anyone who has had an occasional glance at my blog since its inception will know that it is fairly platformer-heavy. I do have a soft spot for good platformers and even the odd bad platformer, though they are not the only type of games that I enjoy. RPG, adventure and action are also some of the genres I can really sit down and sink my teeth into. It is very rare that a racing game comes along which really grabs me. Admittedly the ones that do are not often realistic racers; for example the Mario Kart series with all of its wacky antics is much more enjoyable to me than say, the Forza series with its attempts to emulate real racing as accurately as possible. I recently rebought Burnout 3 for PS2 because I had a crystal clear recollection of the laughs I had playing it with friends some years ago. I can happily say that it is every bit as good as I remember.
