Eif. I think I know what I’m doing with a significant portion of my life for the next little while. Burnout3 is the most entertaining game I’ve played in a long while. Remember when you were little, and you got the Hot Wheels out and play-crashed huge wrecks? That’s the name of the game. Race and wreck; finish first, but take out the competition as often as possible.
Impact Time is awesome. Every time you take out an opponent, you’re treated to a slow-mo replay of your competitor’s demise. It doesn’t take a thing away from the race you’re in, which is pretty impressive since you’re going at a ridiculous speed and can pick right back up where you left off. Amazing.
I have never, ever played a racing game where you feel like you’re going Warp 9 (including the Wipeout, Pod Racer, F-Zero, Ridge Racer, and any other racing genre game). It’s sucking me in, and I’ll post a more substantive review a little later.
This game has been out since September of last year, and pretty much everyone has given it high rankings. I suppose I should pay more attention, as it’s a great way to spend a -30 day.
