A staple of the PS2 library and one I'll forever cherish like my firstborn, Burnout 3 improves on everything that was already great about the second and ups the ante like any good threequel should. A killer soundtrack, top notch racing, and the series' signature takedown mechanic, and you've got a gem of a title that still kicks ass nearly 2 decades later.

Crash Mode is better than practically every other car-based game ever

i miss crash mode so fucking much

racing games on the ps2 were fucking awesome man and this was arguably peak of the genre

In my opinion not just one of the most fun racing games ever made, but also one of the best video games in general. Few games are able to evict the same level of pure bliss that you get here from racing down traffic-filled streets crashing opponents at every turn.

peak arcade racing. graphics still hold up and is still really, really fun. you can cause millions in traffic damages while listening to breathing by yellowcard or this fire by franz ferdinand
