If you ever wanted to be a high-octane speed freak then this is the game for you. Prepare yourself for a complete white knuckle ride. Burnout 2 is the second instalment from Acclaim and unlike most movies the sequel is far superior to the original. Acclaim have taken the first game and tweaked it to perfection. The end result: the best arcade racing game you have ever seen to date. After a simple driving test you open the championship mode. The aim, which hasn't changed from the original, is to race three other cars in a series of circuits, avoiding all forms of road traffic. Notch up winning gold medals and unlock the next level; get gold in each race and not only unlock more tracks, but also the chance to race for another car in a pursuit race. Test your skills, beat the car and add it to your collection. Burnout 2 is brimming with new tracks and challenges. One addition is the crash mode, which lets you cause mayhem and destruction at various road junctions. Cause as much carnage as possible and unlock even more junctions. Watch your mayhem and destruction in glorious replays again and again. Open the multi-player games and the pursuit mode alone will keep you racing for months. Be the cop and try to run your fellow gamer off the road before he escapes the long arm of the law. Race through the streets and highways improving your lap times, and you have the added bonus of seeing just how good you are on Xbox live. Are you the best in the world or just a Sunday driver? Throw down the gauntlet and see if you have what it takes. Burnout 2 is a prime example of simplicity at its best; Acclaim have concentrated on pure gameplay and this game has it in abundance. A complete masterpiece of great arcade action, all rendered in glorious crisp graphics and presented in Dolby 5.1, Burnout 2 is a high-octane, heart-stopping, intense driving experience. --Robert Holliday
