Burnout 3, purely because of the introduction of Takedowns. The Road Rage mode often helped me de-stress after a rubbish day at work. Pity they ruined the Crash Junctions by adding power-ups (and downs) :(

again yes BURNOUT3 was incredibly enjoyable, and really liked the demos of the next couple too
the mix of actual racing and barmy crash course was a nice combo .....
i was more of a M****S**** fan :twisted:

the last time i was invested in crashing my car was INDY 500 on the pc .....

Burnout 3 - first game I had on the original Xbox, played it till I completed 100%. So much fun, especially the Takedowns and Crash Junctions.

Burnout 2 I think was the first I played, and in that regard was my favourite. The crash effects looked so cool, it took the Destruction derby and upped it. I do like Paradise as well with the open world style thing going on, but 2 was my first go into the franchise so I remember that one particularly fondly.

Either Burnout 3 for the "pure" Burnout experience, or Burnout Paradise for sheer, unaldulterated open world racing fun.

Burnout 3 is the pinnacle of the series for me, Burnout 4 is more of the same and I don't like the open world style of Paradise.

Burnout 2, took what was great about the original and made it better, and added the magic of crash junctions. 3 just seemed a bit of a step backwards in the requirement to actually drive accurately (and not wallride constantly) and the one after that was horrendous imo.

Burnout 3 was my introduction to the series and I loved it - Think I had an official addiction to it at one point haha.

Recently started Burnout 2. Not far in to it at all, but Im enjoying it. Too early to say which I think is better, but both are enjoyable in their own right.

As for Burnout Paradise, for me, that game is in a league of its own. It cant legitimately be compared to the rest because the style is so different. I still play it now and love it. My 5 year old son loves it too 8)

Burnout 3 and Revenge are definitely the best. Was really opposed to Burnout Paradise when it launched. I tried it but was not amused. Only when it was given away with PS Plus subscription I cared to give the game a second chance and... it was great! Maybe the first time it was something that went against my expectations from the series but when 2 more years have passed - I could finally move on and accept Paradise for what it is.
