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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome PC racer July 10, 2012
By chr0nix

An excellent racing game and an excellent port. Pros + Open-ended: thousands of opportunities for you. You just want to crash to other cars? You can do it. You want to race? Race. + Excellent graphics, improved from the console version. + Smooth and clean control system (tested with X360 controller) + Good soundtrack + Packed with all the DLC availalble until release + Nice netcode. + No loading times Cons - Some Burnout fans may not like the new open-ended world - Few customizable cars/options

I fondly remember the first Burnout games on the original Xbox and when I built a new gaming PC, I wanted to see if there were any fun arcade-style (not a sim) racing games. I was pleased to see that there was a PC version of the Burnout franchise, and even though its over 6 years old, it still had good reviews. Burnout Paradise has a lot of the same features as the original Burnout games, like the takedowns, and the various racing modes.

One thing they did very different with Paradise was make it an "open world" type concept, which sounds like a great idea, but the problem I have with it, is that I like arcade racing games, because they're quick to pick up, race a couple of times, and then move onto something else. In this game, you are in a virtual city and you have to drive from event to event. Many of the events are triggered by doing a burnout at a stop light, but its not always obvious where all of the events are. If you are in one part of the city and you want to do a specific event, you have to drive there.

At first, this isn't a big deal because the game is fun, but after a short while this gets old because you are just nonstop driving around trying to find events. Maybe I have a serious case of ADD, but I prefer the traditional way of game design where if I want to race a specific Takedown match on the beach, I just select it from a menu. I dont want to have to drive all across a city to that part of the map just to start a certain event.

Seeing as this game is 6 years old, I would like to see an updated Burnout game. Mostly just to take advantage of the latest graphics and PC hardware. By no means does this game look back, but it definitely looks dated. Overall, its a fun game, and it will bring back a bit of nostalgia if you remember the original Xbox game, but the tedious driving around the city looking for things to do gets old, and for me, this kills the replay value.

It was okay, enjoyed the other burnout games a little more, especially the ones with the crash modes.
Every game nowadays doesn't need to keep going to this open world format.
