BURNOUT 3: TAKEDOWN - PS2 Review

This is not a game for wimps, its an adrenaline rush like no other game. Speed coupled with all out brutality to your other racers, oh yes give me more.

Just remember your opponents are trying to inflict the same damage on you as you are on them so it is a survival of the fittest and fastest. When you have been hit by a takedown you can still cause havoc by holding down R1 and nudging your out of control car into the path of other cars.

The types of cars on offer have only two variables to worry about when choosing your weapon (that's exactly what your car is), those are speed and weight. The lighter the car the better it can drift around corners, the heavier the car the better it is in taking down opponents. Its your choice.

Its high velocity, adrenaline pumping car racing at its very best, so don't be shy buy it.
