#18 Burnout 3: Takedown played on PS2, released 2004
The best of the burnout series and my favorite arcade racer of all time. Racing and crash mode are at it's best in Burnout 3. The tracks are varied and have a great flow to them. Crashes are spectacular and crash mode offers a lot of fun puzzles to solve.
With 18 different tracks and 173 different events there is plenty to keep you busy for a long time. There is ofcourse also split screen multiplayer and hot seat crash mode multiplayer. We've wasted many hours topping each others crash mode scores.
The music is very good too, keeping you pumped during the action. NFS hot pursuit comes close as my favorite arcade racer this gen, but the extra variety in tracks and the supurb crash mode keep Burnout 3 firmly on my nr 1 spot for arcade racers.
