We’re only a couple months past the release of Burnout Paradise Remastered. But, thanks to a backwards compatibility update on the Xbox One, gamers can now try their hand at Burnout Revenge.
Revenge originally hit the PlayStation 2 and Xbox in 2005. Less than a year later, Criterion Games released the game again for the Xbox 360 — which is the version available now on the Xbox One.
As the sequel to Burnout 3: Takedown, Revenge is often touted as one of the best in the series. It’s easy to see why too — the game is expansive.
In the single player, World Tour, players take 169 challenges spread out across three locations. These include the standard things like races and time trials. But in true Burnout fashion, it also offers up a healthy dose of mayhem with the Crash mode.
The vehicle list is also robust too. Totalling 77 cars, it offers everything from lightweight exotics to huge trucks for maximum destruction.
Returning to the game also means you can experience a great soundtrack too. However, you’ll really only feel at home with it if you love music from the middle part of the last decade. With around 40 songs, it features bands like Avenged Sevenfold, LCD Soundsystem, and Yellowcard.
If you have a copy of Burnout Revenge laying around, you can simply just pop it into your Xbox One. However, if you’ve long since traded it in, it is available through the Xbox Store for $9.99/£9.99.
The Xbox Store is also probably the cheapest place you’ll find it too. Browsing through Amazon, eBay, and the Gamestop website it looks like the backwards compatibility also inflated the price.
If after playing Revenge you want more Burnout action, we do recommend the already mentioned Burnout Paradise Remastered. To find out more about that title, check out our in-depth review.
