Burnout 3: Takedown

september 9, 2004

I picked up Burnout 3: Takedown today at CompUSA. The game, like the previous two, is fast and addictive. Most of the stuff from Burnout 2 have been carried over (like the Crash mode). But everything has been amped up and there are some pretty cool additions like Road Rage where you can perform Takedowns (basically smashing an opponent until they crash). The graphics (I bought the Xbox version) are spectacular and the game runs (like the previous two) at a steady 60fps. And this is pretty surprising considering all the special effects and particle effects that are in the game. The game has to be seen in motion to see just how fast it is. Any racing game before Burnout 3 is now sluggish. This game rocks.
