About This Game
Developed by Guildford-based Criterion Games, Burnout provides pure, unadulterated, heart stopping, thrill-seeking racing action. With multiple cars to select and race, 300 vehicles to interact with as well as real-time vehicle crashes, even the most hardened thrill seeker will get a major adrenalin boost. As BurnoutTM is dual-shock compatible, players will feel every turn and crunch of the car, while the amazing slow motion instant replays dramatically illustrate the massive damage that can be unleashed.
Insane crashes are possible with every turn of the wheel, and competing drivers are rewarded for pushing their driving skills to the extreme. A simulated in-game Burnout thrill monitor gives players incredible bursts of speed as they experience danger and their thrill levels increase.
With sixteen unique courses to choose from, players are rewarded for driving aggressively and dangerously; the more they drive on the wrong side of the road and get involved in near-misses, the better they do. Burnout is all about pure exhilaration, the rush of speeding through traffic at terrifying speeds, and the ultimate thrill of a high-speed crash.
