I am a PS3 owner and someday hope to be a PS4 owner, yet I am not at all dissatisfied with my choice to delay purchase, solely based on the current PS4 library. When I transitioned from a Playstation 1 to a Playstation 2, I was pleasantly surprised that I could for the most part rid myself of my PS1...

What do these ratings mean?

Pure Arcade Racing Fun. The Graphics aren't that much better than Previous Gen Releases, but this game is pure enjoyment

No Sim Here.
This game is all about pure out speed and hitting things.
I love a racing game when I don't have to brake into a corner.
I do like the GranTurismo and Forza type games, but sometimes you just want to have some fun, and that is what Burnout Revenge is... FUN.

There are several modes where you are either simply trying to win the race, cause alot of damage, or race and wipeout a certain number of competitors.
No matter which mode your in, hitting another car is never a penalty unless you hit the sucker head on. Turbo boost is earned by hitting other cars or even driving into oncoming traffic. I love playing chicken for an complete race.
Getting good Air and Landing on another car is a nice touch. Also there are several things that can be unlocked. Different ways to take another car down, like smashing them into a particular sign.

The car selection is nice, however the cars are not licensed vehicles they are made up. They are however pretty nice cars. The XBOX360 car is pretty cool.

The Tracks are varied from mountain roads to cities. There are lots of short cuts that take through malls, sidewalks, tunnels, all kinds of good stuff.

The 1st Time I popped this game in, I played it for a good 4 hours straight.
Both of My Kids enjoy this one as well (Boy 10 and Girl 8). It is easy enough for anyone to get into and have fun, whether you win the race or not it is just fun to crash into things.

The Graphics are not that next gen when compared to the PS2 and XBOX versions but it doesn't take away from what a fun game this is.

The Controls are easy to get into and for me the controls feel just right.
I would still like to get a force feedback wheel and experience the game that way, but I'll have to wait till somebody (Preferably Logitech) makes one.

The sound is solid as well. Nice music for my taste.

Online was very smooth the times that I played, of course I get my but handed to me.

You can finish sixth in a race and still have a blast !!
Not many games have ever had that ability to lose big time, and still have fun.
