So, now that ESPN 2K5 is out it'll probably stay in my Xbox the most between now and next year's version.  There are still a ton of games I'm looking forward to this year though and Burnout 3 is the next one to come out.  

I've never enjoyed a racing game as much as I enjoyed Burnout 3 at E3, and the version wasn't near complete.  It had such a huge sense of speed, I almost felt tired after playing a few rounds because of how much I tensed up.  The crashes are spectacular.  Period.  Every aspect of the game screams fun and I cannot imagine how much fun it'll be on Xbox Live!

Here are some previews for you all to check out if you haven't already:

Game of the Year? Sure thing, why not. Yeah, it owns.

It's technically sharp, eye-openingly pretty, and shockingly fast. You've got to play this.

Quite simply, the game rocks.

Whatever you do, don't let this game slip by without at least giving it a shot (that is all it will take before you're hooked).

Oh no need to sell me on it, I was hooked to the 1st and 2nd one until I completed the game 100%.  I really dug the two previous titles, lets hope the big change of publisher doesn't hurt it. smile

Graphics are amazing.  If it plays as loose and fun as the others then I am all aboard for more car-crashing mayhem!

It's amazing how much they improved the game between the first and second games, and it looks like this will be even more of an improvement.

So the other day I was driving along dreaming about Burnout 3 and...

 biggrin

I enjoyed the second one. But I seem to have quit renting games, and I don't think I'll be buying this one. But you never know.

FYI:

Many Gamespots have a Burnout 3 demo running in the store.  Also, you can obtain the demo if you preorder the game.

I will be going to my Gamespot tomorrow and preordering for sure.

Christ, what kinda nails do they have holding those cables to the post? And is that 2.5ton test line? I'm guessing photoshopped. Tongue
