Summary: I purchased this game not to long ago and was expecting an easy start. The game is very easy to set up, but once in, you cant get out! absolutely NO instructions on how to get back to the menu! After using alt-f4 for months I finally saw a tutorial. I would recommend getting it on steam.
Summary: Game works great, totally fun solo, or if you have people over for the party game. Online play is kind of limited, "freeburning" with a buddy really just lets you crash into eachother for no real purpose, and go to races. Was hoping you could do stunt runs and stuff together. The installation went by smoothly but the product verification had a hiccup in it that forced me to use customer support and have them manually verify that my product was official.
Summary: The best part is the crashing! If you like to crash into cars, walls, and watch your car get ripped apart, this is the game for you! The racing aspect is a little strange for me, but that's just me.
Summary: I downloaded this game because I've always loved the Burnout series with the crashing, the racing and endless boost. I was able to get it for 5 dollars on Steam's holiday sale and it was worth every penny. The only annoying things are the menu system, and finding your races and missions in a huge map with no teleport feature for quick play.
Summary: I recently purchased this game for my Windows 7 gaming setup. The game exceeds my expectations in virtually every way imaginable and is one of the few pure pleasures in PC gaming. I am used to games such as Crysis, Modern Warfare 2, etc, and the graphics are easily on par with those types of releases if not better. What those games had done for their genre, Burnout Paradise does for racing games. First, the graphics are incredible.
Summary: I really like this game. The gameplay is pretty fun, and the graphics are very well done. I only wish that some aspects had been kept from previous versions, such as the races where you smash and make as much damage as possible. This version has something to replace it (show) but I liked the old version a lot better. Edit: Now that I have owned this game for some time, I feel that I can better review it. The good: - Very good graphics, detailed and beautiful.
Summary: Another online only game. I've noticed lately that a lot of these "online only" games don't say that on the box. I guess they know a lot of us wouldn't buy them if we knew. I guess I'm gonna have to do better research on these games before I buy from now on.
