Looks pretty nice....burnout 3 was awesome, but i really didn't like the latest one...the way you were able to smack into the back of the the traffic going your way....its cool at first but it really took the pressure off. I hope they change it back. Has anybody heard about whether or not they will allow you to hit traffic and it to not result in a crash or not?

the video doesnt work for me in windows media player...but fine in VLC

i'm really happy that xbox 360 gets it's own burnout.
First i thought it was going to be a port from burnout dominator for ps2.
by the way: i hope it will be more like burnout 3, because burnout revenge was really bad compared to burnout 3!!!

LOVE the teaser!

Wow it sucks triple time

EA loves themselves some vignettes.

Looks alright, can't expect much more from an open world Burnout game I guess.

tell me about it, but it is a teaser i guess. from what we've seen it doesnt look too different from revenge on the 360 and that was just a HD version of the xbox original. so that isnt a great sign. im sure it'll be a blast though. i hope they have removed traffic checking from this new one, cos its what destroyed the game for me in revenge. back to basics, like burnout 2 or even 3.

Agreed. Graphically, it is a Xbox game with nice shadowing. I am not sure if this is the fault of the artists or the open world design. I dont know about anyone else, but I am sick of bloom lighting!!!!!!!!!!! Can we make lighting look realistic for once? I hope they go back to the Burnout 3 formula as Burnout: Revenge was ok, but didnt flow as well as 3.

I think it looks great for such a open ended game.I will buy it for sure day one.

Burnout trailer + no crashes = useless.

Nice....

Back on topic; I went off Burnout 3 because I got to a section of the game where it just seemed like endless crashjunctions, and every little flaw with the system smacked 100 times harder when I'd done like 20 junctions in a row. With no option for any other types of races.

I just hope this one keeps the variety all the way through.

looks good to me

From what I recall, somebody from Criterion has said that the crashes are going to be less arcadey and more brutal/real. By extension I gathered that the over the top wreck fest that was BO4 is out.

Oh and anybody who thinks this looks like an xbox game hasn't played an xbox game in a while.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (17 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (17 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (18 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (18 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (18 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (18 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (18 Hours ago)
