A proper Burnout would be nice, not more of this awful 'Paradise' crap.

Of course with Blur and Split/Second both out it'd have to be really good.

A cross between split second and the best burnout game: burnout takedown would be perfect

I think the team behind Black have moved to Codemasters and are making Body Count which isn't actually Black 2 but is meant to be it's 'spiritual successor'. I wouldn't say no to a full bodied version of Black 2 though either, just with a few more save points may be.

Yes. I read that several of the lead programmers who worked on the original Black moved to Codemasters, who as you rightly point out, are developing Bodycount. But I think the actual Black IP is still owned by Criterion (I could be wrong mind you) but either way, it would be lovely to see a new Black....

Just give me Big Surf Shores and the Supercar from Burnout 2 as a download and i'd be happy. I could burn round that track all day without crashing or losing my turbo. Me and my mate would play that track for hours and whoever got to the first corner first would usually win it by about 0.5 of a second. It was almost like we were shadowing each other. The franchise started going downhill for me after Burnout 2 (or Bumtrout 2 as my friend liked to call it). Paradise was just too far. Go back to singular tracks or just use the open world as a hub and put barriers in when in a race to define the track.

Burnout please, let Need for Speed die already. It's obvious that EA haven't been sure what to do with that series for years now.

spam 23, you dont know what the £uck you are talking about, I suppose you think need for speed is brilliantly fabulous, cock!

BP was brilliant, no other car racing game has come anywhere near it in terms of graphics, the idea of was brilliant. Yes different to the others, but they took a big leap in change, unlike EA and there £ucking trash of a series, which I agree with GTC zeero. The only decent one they made was on the ps2, since then they have been wank.

Bring on BP2, with maybe another change :-) that spam23 doesnt like please :-)

Yeah, I'd like to see Black 2.

But is it just me, or do racing games seem to be coming the new FPS? Seems like theres loads of similar type racers coming out, not that I'm complaining, I just find it hard to decide what to get!

You do not agree with my quest. I understand that, so much as it is possible to understand someone with whom I disagree so completely.
