5.0 out of 5 stars The best car game available Dec 31 2003
This was the first game I bought for my game cube, and it is still the one I play the most. Here are the reasons:
-The graphics
The graphics are great. The tracks are very realistic, since they are made from actual places near San Francisco (I'm pretty sure that's the city)
-The crashes
Unlike other racing games, Burnout encourages you to drive badly and to have accidents! Driving on the wrong side of the road and doing other dangerous things earn you points, which can be used to activate the "turbo" power. And when accidents occur, they are really great and realistic. There is even a game mode where you have to start the biggest accident possible.
-The cars
There is a great selection of cars, from SUV to police car (complete with siren) to racing car. And the best part is, there is a horn on all of them which can be activated to get other cars out of the way!
-The modes
Multiplayer, championship, single race, and even a pursuit mode where you have to chase and hit your "target" car with a police car.
I think if you want a fun city racing game, Burnout is the one to get. It's great, except for the music. But that's a minor detail.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best racing game ever... Dec 3 2003
I've played almost all racing/driving games out there and this one takes the cake! The game is very simple, you have your choice of cars and you race, 'nough said! But unlike other racing/driving games it has several game modes including a Crash mode and a Pursuit mode.
Crash mode is probably one of the coolest parts of this game. You pick your car and you try to rack-up as much damage as you can, i.e. start one of the largest pileups as you can. The more damage you cause, the bigger the payoff. And you can play this in either single player or multi-player.
Pursuit mode is awesome! You have your get away car and of course your pursuit car. What you try to do is hit the get away car ten times to win. Easy enough right? WRONG! It is just crazy weaving through on-coming traffic trying to chase down the other car, or weaving through traffic trying to loose the pursuit car.
And the crashes are so real it makes you cringe in pain when you go head first into a semi-truck! Get this game it's well worth the $20!

5.0 out of 5 stars High-Octane arcade racing excit <CRASH!!!> Sept. 8 2003
Burnout 2 is one of the best (and one of the few) racing games available on the GCN. As a pure racing game, it's good, but not great. It's certainly got nowhere near the depth and complexity of the Gran Turismo series, or even the incredible fast-paced arcade challenge of Ridge Racer.
What it does have are really cool crashes.
No, I'm not kidding. One of the most compelling features of this game is a very cool physics-based system that allows for real time deformation and destruction of all the vehicles in the game. In other words: cars go crash boom good! While this comes into play often in the racing modes (the game encourages you to partake in overly reckless driving in order to build up your turbo meter), the real gem of this title is the aptly-titled Crash Mode. This presents you with 30 extremely varied setups where you attempt to cause the maximum amount of monetary damage in a single crash. Some of them involve busy city intersections, some of them take place on winding mountain roads, and a few of them start with you going the wrong way down a busy interstate! This is best played in multiplayer, where you and up to 3 friends can compete trying to cause the most damage over a series of 3 scenarios.
Good evidence of how fun this is: my girlfriend, who normally dislikes most video games, *loves* this. So does everyone else I've showed it to. I have yet to find anyone who isn't highly entertained by causing a 10-car pileup and then watching the whole thing in slow-motion.
The game also features a full single- and multi-player racing mode, with the single-player mode unlocking various extra cars and tracks for use in the multiplayer and crash modes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart Pounding Excitement!!!!!!!!!!! April 16 2003
I have loved this game since I played it on PS2. That said, the Cube version is even more eye popping and exciting!!!
The turbo boosts feature is awesome. To catch up with the leader you wind up in a frenzied havoc ridden charge through busy intersections and oncoming traffic. Better yet is the fact that even though you frequently travel at lightning fast speeds you miss buying the farm, by somehow managing to scrape by and swerve past other cars and obstacles within inches of your life. Until you master the controls, which are challenging but smooth and pretty easy to learn, you'll cause all types of damage both to yourself and the breath-taking surroundings. Just listen for the crunching sounds, blasting horns and scraping metal, so realistic, you would think that it was produced in hollywood.
The game excels in the area of crashing. There's minigames where the object is to cause as much monetaryu damage as possible. My kids and I played that for hours, even the youngest, or worst of drivers have an awesome time with this. Multi-player is awesome as well.
The computer controlled cars are out to get you, but in the name of keeping it real, do occassionally wipe themselves out when they're under pressure.

The game gets harder when it time to win championships, but stay the course and soon you shall soar like n eagle. Unlock hidden cars and discover more fun yet.
If you have a cube and like racing and or smash em up games, YOU MUST OWN BURNOUT II. You'll thank me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazon.com is selling this item for US$20.00
The Amazon.ca canadian price at 62 dollars is more than double the price at Amazon.com. I could understand minor price deviations, but this is rediculous.
