Excerpt: Known for its high speed races and brutally realistic crashes, the Burnout series has become a staple for any racing game fans out there. The genre was revolutionized with the 2008 installment, Burnout Paradise, which was the seventh game in the series. For the first time in series, Burnout included a totally open world design where players can play in any way that they want.
Pros: Open world design, Challenging races, Visually impressive
Excerpt: This is one of the most awesome games that i have ever played. that is due to the fact that there is no money in this game, no upgrades for vehicles, no boss!. i mean the racing game mentality uptill now was there was atleast one boss in every game. also i never got bored of this game cause once you start playing this, you'll never know as the time goes by.
Conclusion: Burnout Paradise may not be the most original game in terms of gameplay, but its implementation of those elements is top-notch, and the franchise’s open-world evolution is definitely welcome. The lack of Crash Mode? Don’t sweat it; Showtime Mode is a blast, and with any luck Criterion will include an update down the road to let online crashers go head-to-head. My first inclination was to say this was the best Burnout since Takedown.
Excerpt: I was excited to get Burnout: Paradise in my hot little hands. I was amped from the second I selected the disc on my PS3's menu and the Burnout License Plate filled the screen while Guns and Roses' song, "Paradise City" filled the room. Luckily, Burnout: Paradise didn't disappoint... Burnout: Paradise is a very, very pretty game.
Summary: Buckle up and prepare to unleash automotive anarchy in the ultimate burner’s paradise. Burnout 5 gives players license to wreak havoc in Paradise City, the ultimate seamless racing battleground, with a massive infrastructure of traffic-heavy roads to abuse.
