5.0 out of 5 stars Great Arcade Racer January 31, 2012
Verified Purchase
If you liked the NFS earlier series game engine then you'll like this Arcade Racing Game.

The Burnout Paradise Ultimate Box Download from Amazon can be activated and downloaded right from the ORIGIN client after you get the activation code, my preferred method.
It worked with Windows 7 64bit, Steering Wheels and Gamepads. I tried both a xbox360 gamepad controller (work without configuring) and a Thrustmaster Ferrari F430 (worked after configuring) without issue.

I was able to set graphic settings to 2560X1600 (high,medium,low,AA options available). Plays without glitches, but I have a beefy system by today's standards. (I975@4Ghz, SLI GTX580's 1.5gb, 12GB system ram, HP ZR30w 30" S-IPS display). You can turn off music and even arrange the in game music selection and organize the order.

The menu is hard to understand at first like "exiting the game" and finding the "setting menu" was awkward. I suggest you do a search for *Criterion Burnout Paradise PC Q&A* before playing the game so you know how to "exit the game." The brief Q&A will also show you how to setup a controller and other stuff.

I haven't played Multiplayer as that is not my thing with racers, only FPS games. I never played the console versions so I couldn't compare to them either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great city, improved physics June 11, 2012
Verified Purchase
My favorite game yet.

My one criticism of Burnout, the first time I played an earlier version of the game, was that the physics and crashes were super lame and utterly ridiculous. I was playing that on XBox or PS3 (can't remember which).

This is the first time I have seen a Burnout game on PC. I got it, and I have to say I have never seen a more compelling game. For one thing, it works even without a fancy graphics card, but nonetheless preserves attractive realistic shading. I have a Dual-Core 2.00 GHz Pentium processor on a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop with the default chipset and 4 GB of RAM. Also, it has a map with every kind of temperate territory you can name (except, perhaps, Piedmont pine forests) :-)

There are 75 cars which are not real (Ford, Chevy, Ferrari, etc.), but look very real and probably are close spin-offs. Events are sprinkled throughout the city which you win to win new cars. Sometimes, for an extra challenge, you have to shut a car down to win it.

My favorite game yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent arcade racer March 26, 2012
Verified Purchase
I'm not a racing fan, but this game is surprisingly fun. Zooming down the streets and drifting around corners is simple and satisfying. Great game for just about anyone, even if you don't normally like these kinds of games.

My only gripe with the game is that it doesn't include all the dlc and there are no plans to release the rest of the dlc for the pc version. I wanna drive the DeLorean.

1.0 out of 5 stars Does NOT include all the DLC. October 23, 2012
I love this game on Xbox. It's not so hot on PC. Our friends at EA decided to "end of life" the store. You're not getting all the Burnout Paradise DLC in the "Ultimate" version. I'm not sure what you do wind up getting. I know the base Bikes is on there. I think that may be the only thing that separates this from the original version... The two motorcycles. (I really hope I'm wrong there. I know there's not much of the DLC here regardless.)

The PC never even got the Big Surf expansion like the console version.

Thanks again EA!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother November 8, 2013
By Dom
Verified Purchase
I remember the version of burnout on Xbox so thought this would be fun on the PC. The graphics look excellent. Unfortunately the game does not recognize generic game pads and nothing on line shows how to make it recognize a non PS3 or Xbox 360 game pad on my PC. Wish I could get a refund for this junk.
