Burnout Revenge is the fourth video game in the Burnout series of racing games. It was developed by Criterion Games and published by Electronic Arts. It was released for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox on 13 September 2005 and Xbox 360 on 7 March 2006, alongside the PlayStation Portable and Nintendo DS title Burnout Legends.
Similar to its predecessor Burnout 3: Takedown, Revenge focuses on a mixture of racing in the midst of rush-hour traffic, and vehicular combat; players use the cars themselves as weapons. Revenge also expands on the combat side of its gameplay with new features such as "traffic checking" (ramming same-way traffic), Vertical Takedowns (landing on a rival car after the player's car drives over a jump), a new game type (Traffic Attack) and significant changes to the gameplay of Crash mode (a game type where players attempt to cause as large a crash as possible). A sequel to Burnout Revenge, titled Burnout Paradise, was released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on 22 January 2008.
