    Pick up Burnout2 for $10 locally. You won't be disappointed for the price. Myself and coworkers used to play it whenever we had free time. Burnout3 will be even better. I'll definitely be buying it the day it comes out.

    Flatout looks pretty good too. Might have to grab it as well.

    I tried the demo(PS2) at EB. It's a pretty sweet game. I thought the matrix slow-mo thing would get old, but it fits this game perfectly.

    Wow I'm starting to buy console games again! First SF Anniversary, Burnout 3, and then Mario Tennis when it's available.

    Glad to see an arcade racer score so high! It's one of my favorite genres.

    I've had this game for a couple of days now, it is very addictive. My favorite mode is Road Rage its a pity I don't have Xbox Live to take advantage of multiplayer but there is still some split-screen fun to be had.

    Got this game yesterday, loved burnout 2.. But this game absolutely blows burnout 2 away! by far my new fav racing game. The whole presentation of this game is unbelievable, cameras panning back and forth when you takedown an opponent and in crash mode. I havent been this impressed by game visuals in a long time.


    oh, and its so FAST!!! i suggest taking a 15 min break after playing this game before you get behind the wheel of a real car.. [​IMG]

    Same here. Just slamming back and forth with your opponents, taking out as many people as you can, forcing them into oncoming buses, it's just so visceral. And fun [​IMG]

    Also got a strong review at Gamespot. I wasn't originally planning on getting this one but it's looking more interesting by the minute. [​IMG]

    Man, this was just as good as everyone said it would be. What an amazing game!

    Everytime I go online, someone complains of dehydration, since they dont want to leave their chair for one second. I have to get a huge cup of water with me before playing...its that addictin' online, and off.

    What is the mode most people are playing on Live?

    I think its Team Road Rage. Party Crash isnt too good, and Race is very fun.

    One other thing, is it normal for EA to include product placements throughout their games? From upcoming games to cologone, totally shameless.

    Two questions:
    Did anybody think the game was real easy and then get about 30 percent complete and the game got alot harder?

    And wasn't there supposed to be a demo of Need for Speed Underground 2 on the game? (I have the xbox version)

    I am loving this game so far, more then the two previous versions, just wish crash mode wasn't so easy now.

    Yes. I remember seeing McDonald's ads in Need for Speed Underground. At least they didn't force them on Medal of Honor. They only do it in modernized environments, where you would see ads in the real world.

    Yea I don't mind the ads too much, sorta ads to the game; something like Nascar or an Indy race with all the ads splattered everywhere.

    What does everyone think of the audio on the Xbox version? Is it pseudo-5.1 or not?

    I just picked this game up over lunch, price-matched today's Fry's ad at Circuit City, with the 110% price match, got the game for $33.49 + tax!

    It has some of the most amazing bass ever, and the custom soundtracks pump up the volume quite a bit. Definitely a home theater demo game!

    Yeah, the "Woosh" as you fly by oncoming traffic is awesome, and the bass when boost kicks in.
