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.
