Heaven on Earth, at least to road-raging, crash-causing Burnout fanatics, Paradise City is your domain and ultimate proving ground in Burnout Paradise. This expansive drivers playground stretches across 250 miles and encompasses all sorts of road driving conditions, from fun-in-the-sun seaside cruising boulevards, to mountain roads and downtown gridlock. But regardless of what stretch of asphalt you find yourself on, the beauty of this place is that nothing is blocked off and your wits are at least as important as the horsepower under your hood when it comes to racing here. Check out Paradise Citys five sub areas (click the links for sample images):
Unlike in previous Burnout games, Burnout Paradise not only puts the keys to your ride in your hands, but places you squarely in the drivers seat when it comes to where you can go and what you can do.Along with wide avenues and crowded highways, the open game design of Paradise City is also jammed full of hidden side streets, back roads and alley ways. These can be used as short cuts in races, that is, if you know where they are. As you explore, commit these potential short cuts to memory because they will definitely come in handy in a tight race. And since we are talking Burnout here, players should not expect uneventful, genteel contests of speed and precision driving. In Paradise City players are always free to slam, shunt and wreck opponents in their bids for supremacy and they will. Also, new to the Burnout series, races can now start anywhere, anytime. Just pull up to a stoplight and spin your wheels to start one in one of five different event classes:
- Classic Race
- Road Rage
- Burning Route
- Stunt Run (new)
- Marked Man (new)
Burnout Paradise also keeps the mobile carnage coming while simultaneously setting the new standard in online social gameplay. With the new Easy Drive feature you can find friends online and with the click of a button invite them to a race. Once theyve accepted the race will start immediately. That's right, no more annoying wait times at online lobbies and servers. And keeping in touch with friends is easier than ever.Team up or Takedown
In the winner-take-all universe of Burnout teaming up usually isnt the first option that comes to mind, but on these rough and tumble streets it's a good option to keep in mind. With more than 300 FreeBurn Challenges packed into the game, players always have the choice of going it alone against the field as a whole or joining forces with up to seven of your buddies in user-created race routes. Either way, if you are victorious in your takedown you'll get the chance to talk some trash as you exchange Mugshots with your victim via an optional camera hooked to your gaming system or your gamertag/PSN avatar if you prefer to keep your identity on the down-low.Showtime: Crash Anywhere, Any Time
And finally since a new Burnout release wouldn't be complete without a little something special in the wreckage department, Burnout Paradise continues the carnage with an update of its familiar 'Crash Mode.' Renamed 'Showtime Mode,' players can now crash, bounce and scatter their ride in any location and replay the wreckage over and over in slow motion. One of the most addictive and down right fun features of the game, players activate the mode by simply pulling both triggers on their controller and if they are good enough can also immortalize their Showtime moments on the leaderboards for all to see.Driving fans this is Next-Gen at its best and definitely the Burnout title you have been waiting for.

Top Customer Reviews
- Burnout is easy to pick up, easy to understand, easy to play...obviously there is some challenge.
- open-world racing is the future and it is a much better presentation
- ROAD RAGE takedowns are easier and more fun
- realism of the textures, physics and the environment seem to have been improved. The attempt here is for a real city, not fake arcade racer routes with the gigantic "for dummies" lighted arrows telling you where to go
- they've added some more things to do such as parking, jumps, crash through billboards and gates, etc...there are tons of these.
- it wipes the mat with other "fun" racers like Flatout, which can be so difficult and frustrating (for some) the fun is simply turned down to zero...
- racing games are probably the most frustrating of any gaming genre (RPG, FPS, whatever). Burnout is the least frustrating of any racer ever.
- crashing into things doesn't (always) crash your car as per previous Burnout installments
- achievements (360-only) are no longer impossible, as it was with Burnout Revenge...
- popping in-and-out online is easy
- you can put your own face on your license if you have a cam. Mine has my middle finger.
- helpful "turn indicators" letting you know when you need to turn (because you are flying at a million miles an hour - you'll need `em)
- open-world racing isn't new.Read more ›
There's only 8 finish lines, but the route you take is always up to you. Crashes are nice, however the slow mo before you crash kinda gets in the way, and the camera doesn't snap back as good as it can for drive aways.
I was hoping it was more like Revenge, there's progression while free roaming, but without a story it just feels like your driving around aimlessly while knocking over fences & billboards. With Revenge you could jump in & out of the game & the progression went a lot smoother. If they let you jump to event it would have saved a lot of hassle.
All in all you can tell NFS MW (2012) is an upgraded version of this.
Burnout has always been about racing crazily and since three it has been about the takedowns. However, both of these aspects are greatly diminished in this game. Because of the open world nature there is no set path from point A to point B, this means that in most of the races I have played, with the exception of the very beginning of the race I don't even have a chance for takedowns. The racing itself is diminished because I don't know where the heck I am suppose to go. In the short time I have played it I have lost multiple races because I either took a wrong turn, wrecked because I turned to late or to early, or wrecked because I was to busy looking at the stupid little map to figure out where I was suppose to turn that I hit something in front of me. Having to spend the entire race trying to figure out where I am suppose to go and how to get there takes a lot of the fun out of weaving through traffic, drifting, and taking down opponents. More than anything the ambiguity of the stupid open world races detracts from the fun I can have with the game.
However, there are multiple other problems that get in the way of Burnout Paradise being fun for me. First, I really don't like the open world structure. I get that it can be fun to drive around and explore the world,but that should not hinder me from doing what I want to do. If I want to race I first have to drive around looking for a race, and once I find one I had better win because the only way to redo if I lose is to back track and figure out where the starting line was, because there is not restart option.Read more ›
