Burnout Legends – Criterion – Ds, PsP


We all know about the Burnout games, where not only do you race in legendary cars, but you get to crash them too! Watch and laugh as your favourite hot rod smashes into smithreens on the side of a bus, only to come back perfect in a few clicks time! Unfortunately, Burnout Legends on Ds is not so crash-tastic.

For instance, the crashes have hardly any cars to smash into, which dosn’t complement the fact that you must destroy at least four cars before you receive a Crashbreaker. The poor graphics (which can’t really be helped) don’t act in the game’s favor either.

The racing is pretty nice, though. Speed through tracks from the previous Burnout games ( Burnout, Burnout 2: Point Of Impact, and Burnout 3: Takedown) in over 60 different cars including the euro racer, gangster boss, and my fav, the sports cop!


The pursuit mode sees you racing against the clock to takedown a car whilst driving a cool cop car – the best bit about that is that you even get to have a siren going!!!

The multiplayer options to this game are good, with Wifi champinships and Ds download play. Sadly, this could never  live up to the Mario Kart standard.


Mirror Tracks – To play on a mirror track in Single Player mode, unlock all Legend Face Off cars.

Unlock Firetruck – get gold in all Crash events.

Unlock Cop Racer – Get gold in all Persuit events.

Unlock Gangster Boss – get gold in all races!

Unlock Ultimate Coupe – Get all Signature Takedowns!!

Unlock Euro Racer – Collect all Postcards.

Unlock Classic Hot Rod – Collect all Takedown Trophies.

Unlock Us Racer – Get gold in the Super GP.

Unlock World Racer – Get gold in the Special GP.

Overall, Burnout Legends is a nice game, but EA could have worked more on the crash section. Maybe Burnout Legends was a burmout too far…


If you liked this game, try the other Burnout games, which are on most consoles, or Need For Speed: Carbon.



  1. Great tips, i found all information i was looking for, i will use some of them.

  2. this is the worst racing game for the ds. the graphics suck so bad that i wanted to throw my ds out my window. the psp version of burnout legends is way better and i recommend getting the psp version.

  3. I am so glad you agree with me. The DS version’s one of the worst games I have played! If anyone thinks differently, tell us!
