Racing 20 September 2011
A crazy racing minigame which is a spin-off to the popular Burnout series developed by Criterion Games and launched in 2001. Burnout Crash! focuses entirely on the titular Crash Mode which is one of the hallmarks of the franchise. Thus the gameplay here focuses on causing as much damage as possible in collisions on crowded streets. The player is rewarded for being creative when causing road accidents - the more damage one causes the higher their score is. Contrary to all the previous installments, the game features top-down perspective. This affects the gameplay formula significantly, because the player cannot see what is far ahead of them and good reflexes are the key to success here. One is capable of comparing their results with others' thanks to the Autolog system, which appeared first in the Need for Speed series.
Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box
Racing 03 February 2009
A complete edition of the racing game released in 2008 by Criterion Games. The title was a great success and received many DLC expansions during the months following its debut. The game takes place in the titular Paradise City which has open structure and across which the player can freely move while accepting various racing challenges. The title slightly refreshes the formula of the series but without resigning from its characteristic traits, such as the arcade driving model and spectacular traffic crashes. The mechanics of Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box are same as in its predecessor that was released one year earlier. However, the game contains all DLC expansions that were previously available only through the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live. These DLC expansions introduce, among other things, motorcycles and night races to the game. The Ultimate Box is the first installment of this popular console series that was released on PC.
Racing 22 January 2008
The full-fledged sequel to the series of racing games started in 2001 by Criterion Games. The game takes place in the fictional Paradise City, which consists of an island with an airport, a bay with skyscrapers and hills that are free of any infrastructure. The game combines dynamical driving with impressive crashes and breaking the traffic regulations in a way that is typical for the series. Burnout Paradise slightly refreshes the classic formula of the series. One of the main novelties is taking the action to an open world across which one can move freely, completing various challenges. In contrast to the previous games, the gameplay concentrates slightly more on typical races while the Crash Mode (here called Showtime) known from the previous installments is only an addition which can be activated at any moment of the game. The title uses a completely new driving model and physics engine which is responsible for damage model of the vehicles.
Racing 06 March 2007
Another spin-off to the popular Burnout racing series. The game was created by EA's internal studio, specifically for owners of Sony consoles (PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable). As compared to the franchise's previous installments, Burnout Dominator is an unusual game, because it lacks one of the series' hallmarks, namely the Crash Mode, which never appeared before. Instead however, the creators offered four completely new modes, including Maniac, Drift Challenge, Near Miss Challenge and Burnout Challenge. What is more, the burnout effect which was not present in the third installment returns here - it allows the player to activate boost after executing sufficiently dangerous maneuvers. Burnout Dominator does not offer many racing tracks, for it features twelve in total, located in 8 different parts of the globe. Also, the game lacks an online multiplayer component. The only form of multiplayer competition included here is the split-screen mode.

The proven solutions of the game’s predecessors were enriched by previously unavailable game modes and an improved driving model, which perfectly captures the feeling of speed. The list of novelties is complemented by a new, even more spectacular damage model and an improved graphical layer, powered by the engine borrowed from the Grand Theft Auto series. Additionally, Xbox 360 version offers even more spiced-up visuals with increased resolution, and a dedicated network mode.

Burnout 2: Point of Impact
Racing 30 September 2002
A sequel to an arcade racing game by Criterion Games, whose main selling point is the advanced damage model and the spectacular crashes resulting from it. Burnout 2: Point of Impact stands by the solutions originating from it’s predecessor, centering on dynamic arcade races, beefed up by spectacular crashes observed from different camera angles. The basic gameplay mode is the championship, in which our victories unlock access to new race tracks, vehicles, or duels with demanding enemies, resulting in car rewards. The game also includes a chase mode, in which we take control of a police vehicle, trying to intercept a felon before he reaches the finish line. One of the characteristic elements of Burnout2 is the famous Crash mode, in which instead of racing our task is to cause a crash with the highest possible number of vehicles involved, while the game rewards our actions with appropriate amounts of cash.

The game offers typically arcade driving physics complemented by the useful addition that is boost. This can be replenished by performing risky and dangerous maneuvers. Burnout features more than several different cars which can be easily recognized despite the lack of producer license. The majority of races takes place in urban areas, where numerous crashes occur - the player can view them from different camera angles.
