The Burnout Revenge wiki last edited by Poltergeist13 on 05/02/14 08:04AM View full history

Overview

Released by Criterion Games for PS2 and Xbox on September 13, 2005, Burnout Revenge puts a little more emphasis on the arcade style of the Burnout series. Revenge features some new additions as well as some tweaking to gameplay modes found in earlier Burnout titles. In this game racers can, for the first time, ram same way traffic into other racers to get a “Takedown”, the quickest and most entertaining way of gaining points and boost in the game. This traffic checking effectively lets ram through traffic turns other cars into tools of destruction rather than a nuisance to maneuver around. Players can also rain hell down upon opponents through vertical takedowns, done through going off ramps and landing on top of others.

In terms of gameplay modes, Revenge more-or-less follows the precedent set by its predecessor Takedown. However, a new mode is added in Revenge, called "Traffic Attack". In this mode, players use same way traffic ramming to accumulate points. Changes to the series' Crash mode are also made in Revenge, though the premise is basically the same.

In single-player, drivers compete in a world tour of 169 events traversing three continents in ten different ranks. Completing events increases the player's rank and unlocks new events as a result. Revenge also features online support where players can either do traditional races or compete in Crash modes to see who can cause the most destruction in intersections and gain the most points as a result.

Xbox 360 Release

Xbox 360 Version with more damage model.

On March 7th, 2006, Criterion released the game on the Xbox 360. It was the first game to take advantage of kiosk downloads in North America. Players would be able to take their memory unit to a retailer (Best Buy, GameStop, and Circuit City) and get a car detailed with the specific retailer's decals. The game also has seven other sponsored vehicles available for download on the Xbox Live Marketplace.

The most recent full release, Burnout Paradise, deviated slightly from the original formula by moving to an open world. For this reason, many still played Revenge on the Xbox 360 after Burnout Paradise's release.

Ranks

The single player portion of the game features ranks to signify the player's progress in the game. First off, a player can earn up to five stars in each event; * (OK), ** (Good), *** (Great), **** (Awesome), ***** (Perfect). Only by getting a four star rating for your event performance and a gold medal can the player get five stars for the event. So essentially a gold medal gives you one more star, a silver none, and a bronze will subtract one. The stars received in the event will be subtracted from the amount need to reach the next rank.

  • Rank 1: Harmless
  • Rank 2: Unsafe - 20 stars
