Burnout 3 – Takedown

Inspired by AntiMatter’s (of Nuclear Moosecandy) Review of the PS2 version I thought this game was worth getting. So I went out and got the Xbox version and I gotta say: now that’s a fun game. I didn’t have the chance to play all that much yet, but I’m already intrigued by the whole concept.

It’s not really what you might consider a “normal racing game”. You gotta take (sometimes huge) risks to be fast and successfull – and the bigger the risk, the bigger the reward (turbo). But you gotta be careful not to take too many risks as the (spectacular!) crashes can really throw you back. I think this will be my new favourite racing game (up to this point it was: Need for Speed Underground – but I already completed that months ago, so no big challenge in it anymore) and I’m sure there will be many hours of playing with this one!
