Burnout Revenge is now backward compatible on Xbox One
Criterion’s blistering arcade racer Burnout Revenge is the latest game to be whipped into a suitable state for the modern age, courtesy of Microsoft’s Xbox One backward-compatibility badgers.
Burnout Revenge, for those keeping notes at the back, released on Xbox and PS2 in 2005, and made the leap to Xbox 360 the following year. It was developer Criterion’s fourth major Burnout title, and was perhaps most notable for its new Traffic Checking feature – which essentially encouraged you to rear-end vehicles in a never-ending explosion of glass and metal in order to best the clock and rack up those gloriously shiny medals.
“Like a steel-toe-capped boot applied to a child’s toy car collection, you sweep all before you in a blizzard of metallic destructive insanity,” said Kristan Reed in his 2005 Burnout Revenge review, “It’s utterly ridiculous, but in a sense entirely in-keeping with the progression of the series so far. Burnout has, after all, succeeded because of its utter rampaging ridiculousness.”
