Takedown was awesome, but I think Revenge was my favorite. I need to play the rest of the Burnout games.

I would pay top dollar for a Burnout: Revenge sequel or HD remake for current gen.

On-topic: Im sorry to say that ive never got the chance to play Takedown as Revenge was the first and last Burnout game i played before my PS2 broke down. Though im sure it was a great game.

I didn't play them, but aren't the recent NFS games kind of Burnout spiritual sequels?

I played them only a little and the gameplay/engine felt very similar. Same developer (Criterion) too.

As said, I don't know much about the subject, but when I'm thinking about playing Burnout, I think about buying NFS...

Essentially, they are, at least in the racing modes. The Crash modes are generally the parts that people associate the most with Burnout, but they aren't in NFS.

However, the aggressive driving element and Criterion-powered sense of speed are still in NFS: Hot Pursuit.

@ Palitera

YOU said it, and that was the problem with criterions 2 attempts with NFS it has burnout engine instead of the soul of Need for speed.
NFS was not a clone of any racer, but had it's own class and style a League of its own racing. until criterion and ghost games step-in. therefore now a clone of BURNOUT and EA don't seem mind it. until gamer stand strong with their wallets and petition nothing will change and we will continually get garbage. maybe Blackbox studio is able to re-capture the soul of nfs back, if they had a second chance. criterion and ghost games not doing it right. as a loyal die hard fan hotpursuit,mostwanted,rivals all was refunded crap!!!!!!!!

Wow... no love for burnout paradise...... put a whole heap of hours into that. I know it wasn't a conventional burnout but they seemed to of nailed the fun factor for me

DarthBigE1499d ago

I could have sworn that they released it for 360, well thats what my friend said...but, yea, I was hopeful for a burnout revenge title too

HaveAsandwich1500d ago

played the heck out of takedown.

barb_wire1500d ago

For me, the best arcade racer I've ever played. Playing online was a blast with this one.

I wonder if we'll ever see another 'Burnout' game, especially one with crash.

SpiralTear1499d ago

I liked Burnout even before Takedown was released, but the third is still the Burnout game I play the most to this day. Fantastic racing game.
