Burnout 3: Takedown

Follow

Overview

Released on September 7, 2004, Burnout 3: Takedown is the first Burnout title to be published under the EA banner and the first to receive a T rating from the ESRB. Previous entries were published by Acclaim. Initially available for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox, the game was also released in downloadable form as an Xbox Original on the Xbox 360 in early 2008.

Takedown is similar in structure to its predecessor, Burnout 2: Point of Impact. But the game does have several new features that make it more than the “racing game plus big crashes” formula used in the past. New features include Impact Time, which allows players to slow time after a crash in order to direct their mangled frame of a car around the road and, ideally, hit other cars for an Aftertouch Takedown. This adds a new layer to the game, slowing down the normally intensely high-speed feel in order to get some post-crash satisfaction.

Players take on multiple event types over the course of the game, including Race, Road Rage, and Crash Mode. Race is fairly straightforward–first one to the finish line wins. Road Rage sets a target number of “takedowns” for the player to reach. Crash mode pins drivers not against other cars, but rather, against set patterns of parked cars and traffic, making it feel almost like a high-speed puzzle that’s solved when you find the precise spot to cause the biggest crash.

Burnout 3: Takedown featured online support, allowing up to six players to compete in race events and up to eight in a Crash event. As part of Microsoft’s shutdown of Xbox Live for original Xbox games, on April 15th 2010 EA turned off the servers for Xbox and PS2.
