Burnout 3: Takedown – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Violence

The crashes are certainly violent, but remain cartoonish enough to make younger children realize that this is all fictional. Parents are mildly cautioned. The lightning-quick reflexes required during the later races might be enough to turn off more casual gamers.

Automobile aficionados hoping to drive a 360 Spider will be disappointed to learn that the game features no licensed vehicles whatsoever. A solid online component means that the game has plenty of life beyond its meaty 173-event single-player mode.

Fans of first-person shooters might find the game appealing.

Fans of arcade-style racing games will absolutely be in heaven, as this game represents the apex of all arcade racing games. Fans of the Need for Speed and Midnight Club series will be right in their glory.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing fans should be fine, although in the Eliminator races a helpful audio cue lets racers know when they are in last place (and in danger of being eliminated).
