In the past, burnout carved its own path in the racing genre by rewarding players for risky driving. That was always the reason Burnout was my racer of choice. In Burnout Paradise, the high speed swerving and marvelous crashes are taken to a whole new level and the open world gives the whole game a more connected feel.
First off, Paradise looks stunning. The day/night cycle lends an ever changing feeling to the beautiful scenery of Paradise city. While you cruise through the crowded downtown streets or the curving mountain passes, you can't help but be distracted by the breathtaking surroundings. But beware! If you lose focus for even a second, you may find yourself marveling at the shear spectacle of a Burnout crash. There's nothing quite like it - tires, shrapnel and glass flying through the air in slow motion as your car is crunched into an unrecognizable chunk of metal.
The presentation in Burnout Paradise is pure perfection. From the menus and map to the vicious crashes, you'll be fully immersed from the starting line.
With hundreds of races to win and over 70 cars to collect (all of which can be customized on a basic level with awesome paint jobs) there's plenty of content. And the fact that the developers keep pushing out more content means you'll always have something to do.
Whether you're looking for an awesome single player experience or some groundbreaking multiplayer fun, Burnout Paradise is your game!
