Game description: Burnout brings high-energy, arcade-style street racing to your gaming console. Drive more than 300 realistic vehicles, and then crash them in spectacular, slow-motion fashion. Burnout monitors your driver's heart rate: You're rewarded for near-misses and the more risks you take. Cruise the United States and Europe on 14 awesome, traffic-filled courses, through cities and into the countryside. Instant replays allow you to relive your handiwork from multiple angles, in all of its cringe-inducing, metal-bashing glory.
The main gameplay mode in Burnout is the Championship mode, which is a selection of events with three or four races in each. Here the player competes against three other cars on various courses. Each event gets harder and requires the player to use faster cars to reach first place. After completing each event, a Face Off challenge is unlocked which in turn unlocks a new car if won. Other modes include single race, time attack, and 2-Player. Single race is a mode where the player races against three opponents. In time attack, the player must finish a lap in a certain amount of time.
