In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

What do these ratings mean?

 

A unique game concept conceived and realized masterfully.
When I bought this piece, i was a bit sceptical, because never loved really driving games or i should say never loved really home driving games. I knew this game genre in the old 90s in the arcades when at that moment Out Run by Sega ruled, for me deserving its status, undisturbed.
Then finally PSX owners could try a slight sense of speed with Sony' s Gran Turismo. I enjoyed that game but i remained always a bit certain that was just a driving simulator (i remember you could take driving licenses). That i wanted was an new ARCADE racing game.
Waiting wasn' t never been so sweet, infact BO3 takedown offers much!
In this game, incredibly, you can dare what you have always dreamed on, yes man, you can driving head to head in exciting races against other vehicles with the actual aim to TAKEDOWN them and indeed put them out combat. Useless to say you can collide, push, crush the other vehicles and what you get for this??? prizes!!!, yes the accent of the game is on risk taking to get awards. Magnificent! I can' t really stop to play this game because is pure gaming bliss and is one of main reasons for which games were been created. You can do it in the normal life you can' t do.
But that most hit is that accidents are absolutely realistic, damages on impact too. Incredible as it has been studied to reach these huge heights.
If you were tired to race you get more man, you get crash mode, an way to roam in traffic cross trying to destroy all you can and you get medals for.
This game is a milestone landmark in its genre and is a step upper the other Burnot games for its features. You get much fun with this game.

Presentation 9.0 (involving you in racing affairs with nice tune)
Graphics 9.5 (so near to reality)
Sound 9.0 (nice effects, some decent songs to listen at)
Playability 9.5 (you can't stop this adrenaline!!)
Lasting Appeal 9.5 (a lot of modes and Burnout World Tour is excellent)
