Burnout Legends Review

Since you guys were good with clicking, here is a reward.

Burnout, Burnout, Burnout, what a series. Many different titles. Well, their latest is Burnout Legends for the PSP. Ok, I can sum this review up in two words, it's ooooooookkkkkkkkk. We have seen many good Burnout games in the past such as Burnout 3 and Revenge, but this one actually disapoints. Ok, now lets get into the review. The game is still fun. The concept of the game is getting pretty old though. The whole idea of the game is, crash, crash, crash. Honestly, it is starting to get boring not having much new. The graphics are astounding. They are very crystal clear, and the damage is incredibly detailed. Although the cars look good, the environments could use a jump. The buildings look very pixely and blocky. There are a few different modes. The racing mode, the crash mode, and a choice of car modes. You can play in different races when you go into the different car modes. But you have to unlock them first. If you are like me, you will definitely spend the most time in the crash mode. That is pretty much the only good part of the game. Now we shall talk about the races. Well, they are ok. The problem is, you can only have 4 computer cars on a track at a time. So there will not be a lot of crashing. Luckily, you can hook up to up to (I think) 4 PSPs at once with one single UMD. That is really good. There is online, but when I tried to go on, no one was on. I tried a day later, and no one was still on. So, either I go on at the wrong time, or no one cares much for online play. You decide. The controls are nice. Pretty smooth. The audio is pretty good. Nice licened soundtrack of songs that are popular, and songs you have never heard before. Luckily, THERE IS NO ANNOUNCER!! So you won't have to hear that annoying guy that really needs to be run over by about ten cars, and hit with shovels. I think EA finally realized how annoying he was, and took him out. Hopefully fired him and put his annoying ass on the street. Ok, that was harsh, but c'mon. There is an autosave after every level, which can really come in handy. So overall, this game may not be as good as Jell-O, but Bill Cosby didn't promote it. This is definitely a good way to waste time. Still overall, crash mode is what makes this game. Burnout Legends gets 3 drunk singing great uncles, out of 5.
