Day 83 – Burnout (series)

Day 83 - Burnout (series)
Along with Grand Theft Auto III, I had asked for Burnout as my other game to compliment the birth of my PS2 collection back when I first went from the N64/ PS1 days into the new era.

Whilst GTA III was a masterpiece that I’ve already covered in an early daily update… don’t think for a second that Burnout took a back seat in terms of really making me hype as a Playstation 2 owner. I had taken great fondness to things like the Gran Turismo series and a few other racing games that tried to simulate the reality of the sport, but arcade racers were, and still are, my favourite kind of racing game.

Burnout made a massive impact when it first hit the scene, blending fast paced road racing with a great attention to detail when it came to crashes. The only downside of the first game though was that although the crashes looked good, you would want to avoid them if you intended on actually winning the races. Although having replayed the first game a bit in order to reignite old memories, I have to admit that the game is pretty hard in it’s balance of risk/ reward.

Building up a “Burnout” in the original game is a LOT rarer an occurrence as it is in the sequels since, and thus in your quest to build a “burnout” up and potentially utilise it’s boost would be a short and sweet measure (although very rewarding when you’d glide through traffic at break neck speeds narrowly missing out on some serious crash opportunities).

I’ve never been disappointed with any of the console made Burnout games so far. I especially loved “Burnout 2” on the Game Cube, and thoroughly enjoyed the crash mode additions, improved AI, and new ways of playing that only went on to increase the intensity and fun.

Burnout once again got to be my first taste of a new generation of consoles when I finally got Burnout Paradise with my XBOX 360 (I was late joining the “HD generation” of consoles).

Visually Burnout Paradise blew me away! It took me a while to get used to the open world map, as I was more than happy with preset tracks and circuits, but the vast level of exploration, fun distractions, and events available in “Paradise City”, paired with a great online experience, and some cool DLC, did all they needed to set me up for the most rewarding, as well as one of my most “total time played” games out of the entirety of my XBOX 360 games played list. It’s a shame the DLC roll out that was planned for Burnout Paradise got cut short, but still…that’s not stopped me having re-purchased Burnout Paradise on both PS3 and PC (both in sales) simply because I can’t get enough.

Criterion Games (creators of Burnout) did a fine job with the reboot of “Need for Speed Hot Pursuit” in 2010, but still…I’m much more hyped up for the day the next Burnout instalment drops 🙂
