So, it’s an odd game, this. It’s a sort of Burnout Greatest Hits compilation, taking some of the best ideas from the series and adding them all together in one sort-of-new package. It’s a shame there are no Crash games and if you’re expecting anything particularly new, well, you haven’t been paying much attention to the videogame industry recently.
But if, however, you want a nice PlayStation 2 finale to one of recent history’s finest racing games, Burnout Dominator ticks all of the boxes. Especially the box labeled “Burnout Chaining” a racing skill we’ve missed since 2002 and are very glad to see back. We were expecting Burnout Dominator to be a cheapo rehash and cash-in now that no one’s really paying attention to PS2 so much, but it’s a class act. We’re confident the series is back on track and set for a stunning debut on PS3 and Xbox 360 later this year.
