This game is played by several players, focusing on an adventurous story. Considering the fifth entry in the gonzo racing series, Burnout Paradise gives players license to wreak havoc in Paradise City.

While playing, gone is needed to jump in and out of menus and aimlessly search for fun. In it, every inch of the world is built to deliver heart-stopping Burnout-style game play. Every of intersection and alleyway are potential crash junctions and opportunities to rack up moving violations. The adrenaline course within the veins will be felt while taking the road for the first time in Paradise City. Explore the city, discover events, and look for the best opportunities to crash, jump and pull signature takedowns. In this game, keys are given to the city, but it's up to the player to earn the keys to the meanest and most dangerous cars on the street, and earn the Burnout license.

Review Summary

Burnout Paradise evolves in Paradise city. It is an intense and exhilarating racing game full of stunts and fights with enemy cars that want to crash with you. There are even road rage and burning routes to make Burnout Paradise more challenging. Trials have to be won so as to earn new cars. However gamers feel that there are not a variety of events. There are quite a number of events but they are repetitive and in the long run you find yourself playing the same specific events again and again. This can become boring and you may lose interest in the game. When you get bored with the single-player action, you can shift online and race against others. You just have to press right on the D pad to bring up the online menu, and then you can team up with other existing games or create your own. Online in Burnout Paradise is quite a different, you can use the PlayStation Eye or Xbox Live Vision Camera to take shots of your rivals online. When you win over a rival player that has a camera hooked up, the cam will take a picture of that player's reaction. The visual presentation is great. The car crashes and head-on collisions are wonderful, due to some special effects. The theme of Burnout Paradise is fast driving and huge accidents, which may appeal to some but not all gamers.
