An Amazing Game With A Whole Lot To Do!

GeoffAussieSpy | Aug. 25, 2015 | See all GeoffAussieSpy's reviews »

I played this game a lot when I was younger and now I've got it on PC, and man do I love this game. It's my favorite racing game/driving game of all time and I really wish they added more cause I finished everything they had. Maybe a sequel, but no. This game is filled with so much to do and doesn't really get repetitive at all. The gameplay is so goood. The driving is very nice, not too sharp or smooth. The damage is also very, very incredible. Looks great. The graphics still live up to now in my opinion. I really, really do love this game and I hope that more people give it a try and hopefully enjoy it. I sure did!

This game is paradise

It's unfortunate that the Burnout series hasn't gotten any attention since this entry as it's my favorite in the series. I've played every Burnout and thoroughly enjoy them all but Paradise brought it to a new level. It still looks amazing, has massive and highly detailed courses, and it controls perfectly. I'd love to see this franchise make a comeback.

My Favorite Arcade Racer, Beware DLC

chandler10s | Feb. 2, 2015 | See all chandler10s's reviews »

By far my favorite arcade racing game I have ever experienced. Burnout Paradise was my first entry into the Burnout series and I instantly fell in love. Even after 6 years the games graphics still compete with other arcade racers released in the last 2 years. Graphics settings are changed in an external program included with the Steam download and settings cannot be changed in game. The soundtrack is always fun having some old classic rock and even some modern rock mixed in. The car and motorcycle sounds are not the greatest but they are not by any means unimpressive. The controls are good either with a controller or a keyboard. You can rebind keyboard keys to play however you want. The keyboard, while not as good in my opinion, does work very well for when you do not want to deal with a game-pad. BEWARE THE ULTIMATE BOX! While the game is sold with the ultimate box and it does come with the extra content available it doesn't work out of the box. EA, being the company we have grown to hate, decided that they didn't need to patch in the actual content to be playable. There are mods and third party programs to work around this but I have never tested them. That being said the game still has a ton of content without the DLC. Overall the game is great and has a ton of play time but if you can find the regular version of the game it may be worth getting instead of this version.

Constantly Crashes

My opinion on Burnout Paradise might be a bit different if the game didn't crash every five minutes. When the game actually worked in those five minute increments, what I played was a satisfying racing experience that allowed you truly feel the speed as you raced from place to place. I like the open world system Burnout Paradise uses, with racing missions being strewn across paradise city instead of being chosen from a menu. The game's visuals are surprisingly good along with the physics engine, which has cars react realistically to collisions. I can't give this game a recommendation due to the constant game crashes, even though sans performance issues it is a solid game.
