I think the crash mode should comeback. Tryng to make the most damage was very cool.

camel_toad1090d ago

That mode was so damn fun. Couldn't believe it when they ditched it.

Yeah that made for a good time.

Rebel_Scum1090d ago

Burnout 2 should be above 3 imo. The aftertouch takedown mechanic slowed down the gameplay too much in 3.

Flewid6381090d ago

That's the mechanic that made me enjoy Burnout 3 over the others. It wasn't until they introduced it that I considered the series any good.

I love Takedown, Revenge, and Paradise. Dominator was okay, but it clearly felt like a B-tier game.

After playing those awesome games, I went back to try out part 1 and it was rough. I didn't like the controls (whereas the others felt perfect to me), the elevator music was generic and not enjoyable to listen to.

Finally the game's difficulty was extremely high. I could beat all single player races in Takedown, Revenge, Paradise, Dominator, but could not get first place in the very first race for the first Burnout game. It demands perfection and one slight mistake is all it takes to lose. I have yet to play part 2, but I'm hoping it's more like part 3 than part 1.

Burnout Takedown is my favorite racing game of all time. My wife was addicted to crash mode.

Xenial1090d ago

As soon as I saw Burnout 3: Takedown at #1, I knew the list was legit. lol


How Burnout Paradise bucked the trend and made open-world racing irresistible

Met with derision from existing Burnout-series fans at the time, Burnout Paradise remains arguably the greatest open-world racing game of all time. Here's why.

SullysCigar441d ago

I don't know why - and I know I'm probably on my own here - but I liked Takedown more. I think it was just 'different' enough to feel fresh. I also loved the destruction.

On that note, a new Motorstorm would be nice! All that mud, dust and car pieces flying everywhere blew my mind on PS3 - imagine what they could do now.

NJShadow440d ago

I loved Burnout Paradise, but Burnout 3: Takedown will always be the best game in the series, for me. Burnout 3 is arguably the most fun game ever made, with the greatest licensed soundtrack ever.

EazyC441d ago

I played through the remaster quite recently. It's not as good as I remember, but I think a lot of that is because the "open world" thing was still pretty fresh back then.

I do think there's a gap in the market for a game like Burnout. With the new gen they could really make car damage a huge selling point again.

BrainSyphoned441d ago

Paradise gave me open world burnout before I knew it was a thing.


Burnout paradise remastered and original are my favorite, i got the platinum trophy for both games the nighthawk is my favorite car

Einhander1971441d ago

Personally don't give a shit for open world racers. Give me a new Motorstorm, Split second, Outrun.

A Remastered Release of Burnout 3: Takedown Is Long Overdue

It's time for EA to bring back Road Rage. And Crash Mode, for that matter.

I absolutely loved this game. It was my favourite in the series, even over Paradise!

LucasRuinedChildhood503d ago

Excluding PSP spin-offs:
1) Burnout 3
2) Burnout Revenge
3) Burnout Paradise
4) Burnout 2
5) Burnout 1

2 and 3 are pretty close for me though.

neutralgamer1992503d ago

Burnout 3
Burnout revenge

These 2 in a combo pack would be awesome

Snookies12502d ago

Yep, best two in the series in my opinion.

YodaCracker502d ago

I’ve been playing this on my Series X with a PS2 emulator and it brings back so much nostalgia. Still my favorite Burnout! But I’d definitely love a remake.

DarXyde502d ago (Edited 502d ago )

More of a Revenge guy, personally.

I really hated Paradise. I played it on PS3 and the only thing I liked about it was that it allowed for custom soundtracks.

..... So I just played it with the Revenge OST. 🫡

SullysCigar502d ago

I agree about Paradise. The world raved about it and I honestly thought I was the only one it didn't click with. I felt a bit like I was playing GTA, only without the story, shooting, flying et al. It felt a bit soulless to me compared to Takedown and Revenge, which were more OTT fun!
