If recent video footage of Burnout 2: Point of Impact is any indication of the quality of the product, I might just have to forgive and forget their sins from a few paragraphs below this one.
Not only do the graphics and physics look completely stunning, but the gameplay now looks like it has more depth than the original (i.e. condensation had more depth than the original Burnout).
An interesting point made today by someone in the know is that if Burnout 2 is using the new, refined version of Renderware, then GTA Vice City should look equally as awesome.
I think a whole load of folk are going to be surprized by the caliber of the PS2’s graphics in the coming months. Acclaim pulling the cat out of the bag with Burnout 2 could be just the start of an avalanche of eye candy on the system.
