This page details one or more prototype versions of Burnout 2: Point of Impact.

This article is a work in progress.
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
To do:
Document the recently released July 27th, 2002 and August 5th, 2002 prototypes.

July 27, 2002 (Pre-Beta/version 0.1)

A "pre-beta" build compiled on July 27, 2002, identifying itself as version 0.1.

General Differences

Menu Screens

  • The menu background is an even earlier version than the August builds.


  • A "Pre-Beta Version" watermark is present at all times.
  • Big Surf Shores is exceptionally hard in Pursuit Mode depending on the vehicle selected, as the checkpoint has been placed too far away from the start.
  • How to Play videos do not exist; the GUI elements to show them appear, but they do not play.

Aug 6th, 2002 demo (PlayStation 2)

A PlayStation 2 demo build of this game exists that's compiled about a month before the final build. It normally only lets the player drive around Big Surf Shores.

General Differences

Menu Screens

The legal screen and the main menu screen both use a different background image than the final release. In fact, the final build doesn't have any kind of background for the legal screen.

Aug 31, 2002 prototype (PlayStation 2)

Disc front.

A "prototype" build of Burnout 2: Point of Impact for the PlayStation 2 from 2002-08-31 (about a week before the release build). Get it here.

Being a review code compiled a week before release build, just about every single file is identical to the retail build, with the exception of the main executable.
