The original Burnout title was praised for its amazing graphics and Burnout 2 pushes the technology even further.

Burnout 2: Point of Impact builds upon a strong speed-driven franchise with vastly improved game play, new game options and bigger, better and more insane crashes. Burnout 2: Point of Impact is infused with a wealth of new features and improvements, including bigger tracks, fully tuned-up custom motors, secret challenges, all-new modes of play, and an improved Burnout meter. Test your nerves and skills by taking to the air, sliding through corners, and swerving to avoid head-on collisions, while filling your meter to unleash a burst of speed previously exclusive to airplanes.





Offensive Driving 101, where you can "Learn to Burn" from the Burnout Driving School.

Pursuit races allow players to race a police car and ram opponents off the road.

Crashes are bigger, badder, and more heart-stopping than any seen before: Vehicles deform and car parts fly across the highway.

Includes 15 more crash junctions than PlayStation 2 version. This mode is now twice the size as the PS2 game mode.

Advanced lighting effects such as Bloom Lighting: highlights reflect off of windshields and metal exactly as in real-life.

New Custom Series Mode that allows you to race modified vehicles complete with body kits and decals.

Six new United States locations, including Miami, Los Angeles, The Rocky Mountains, New Mexico and a busy international airport.

Seven secret vehicles to unlock including police cars, 1950's hotrods and stock cars.

IGN Cube:
"Definitely worth a buy, even if the single-player content can be experienced in five hours or less. Crash mode, the Custom Series, which features more cars to unlock and all the tracks in reverse, and the multiplayer make up for it. Few arcade racers can compare to what Criterion has pulled off."


"Anyone looking for the fastest-moving street racing game in the world, however, should step right up. The crash mode alone makes this game worth seeing, and the inclusion of the well-done championship and multiplayer modes makes it a must-own for fans of arcade racing."
