ZTGD reviews Criterion's latest chapter in the Burnout franchise. Find out if it advances the series with open world racing or causes it to take two steps backward.
I agree that EA traxx is really, really horrible and the exclusion of crash mode will not please the Burnout enthusiasts but it's still a great game nonetheless.
Why didnt they dock the Xbox360's score for requiring the people to have a Hard Drive to play the online??? Without a hard drive you essentially have no online for Burnout on the 360......didnt they dock Uncharted, Ratchet, etc for not having online?? But they praised BioShock for not needing it???it just seems a little Backwards to me....... ....... ..... ......"The JOEY has Spoken"
what are you doing in the gamer zone?
The Core/Arcade is a baaaad value, no question about it. But that's true of almost every "economy" level sku in any product line, from cars to appliances. So why ding the game instead of the SKU? If you bought an Arcade/Core, isn't it your fault for practicing false economy that you can't play this game online? Off-topic, but I think MS should allow devs to require the HD and either phase out the Arcade/Core model or at least warn consumers more clearly that they are giving up a lot of functionality in exchange for the $70.00 "savings." What little strategic marketing sense this SKU had in 2006 is gone in 2008. Once the Arcade/Core is gone, they can finally drop the price on the spare HDDs, because they would no longer need to maintain price differentiation between the budget SKU and the mid-level pro/platinum model.
i guess they havent been online yet or try out SHOWTIME.8.5 is a joke.this game is amazing,its a buy!PLAY B3YOND
true... 8.5 is a joke. its is awesome shoulda been over a 9 score. one ? um y are you a ps3 fanboy with that avatar when ut3 is based as a pc game and also coming the 360 later?
No we didn't dock Uncharted, in fact it received a 9.5 from us. I didn't dock it for requiring the hard drive to play online for the same reason I didn't dock the PS3 score for not having custom soundtracks and rumble.
custom soundtracks and rumble are external features from the actual game and wont affect the purchased product, but the addition or lack thereof a hardrive for the Xbox360 could leave you with only HALF of a Burnout game (minus any online play) now how does this not warrant any adjustment to the score?????
No I don't believe it should hinder the score because most Xbox 360 gamers who play online own the hard drive. Think about it systems without the HD are not marketed to play online. In fact I have yet to see any other site that disagrees with that statement because I haven't seen any other sites score both versions differently. There will always be differences in opinion and there will always be people wanting to find reasons to find a reason to say one version is superior. It would have been similar to marking Unreal Tournament III lower when it came out because some PS3 systems didn't have the flash card drives to upload user created content.
i honestly dont see the big deal ..infact i wish that Microsoft enabled users to download portions of the game to the harddrive to cut down load times like Sony and those without harddrives will have to play the game the way it is, if u pay more for something then u should expect higher standards.... which is also why i didnt buy my ps3 (YET) just waiting for that one game which i cant resist. errhmm FF13(you hear that Square?) lol
Why will players miss crash....play the other games for it.... this is a different game from the others, different approach.....OPEN YOUR MINDS and your wallet
