3.0 out of 5 stars Good games, but they get a litlle repetitive, November 22, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Burning Hot Bundle [Download] (Software Download)
First of all, I installed both games without using EA's Origin program with no issues (the installer checked via online server the keys provided by Amazon, again with no problems). Haven't experienced any problems with both games. I bought it at a discounted price, so far I consider it a good value for the money. Here are my impressions on both games.

Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box:
Racing game with a strong focus on crashing and totaling opponents. It's set up in an open-world city, with several types races or "missions" available. The racing missions give you a starting point and an ending point, but the twist is that there is not a single route to the finish line, you can (or must) choose how to get there through the streets of the city. Other missions involve surviving against other cars trying to destroy you, or you destroying other cars. The game's got a nice selection of licensed music tracks that fit pretty well, and the gameplay is fast and fun. Things I didn't like were the lack of real cars and how it gets a little repetitive. Runs very good in my PC (60+ fps), but the multiplayer is not working. 3/5 stars

Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit:
Again a racing game with a strong focus on crashing and taking down opponents. Very similar to Burnout, but with a more "serious" tone that does not fit well with the action. The game is set in a fictional county, with several types of missions available, although they are less varied than in Burnout. The racing missions are more straightforward, with only one route to the finish line. You can play as both a racer or a detective. The racer has to get to the finish line first, escaping the police, while the detective has to stop the racers by destroying the cars. It gets repetitive very fast, but the multiplayer is much better, with a social system that lets you share messages and photos of the game. Also, it keeps track of other players records, so you can challenge and beat them ("Autolog"). The licensed music selection is, again, a little too serious and doesn't fit well. Really good graphics (runs very good on my system) and real life luxury cars. 3/5 stars

My system:
- CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 955
- Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 6850
- Memory: 4 GB RAM
- O.S.: Windows 8 Pro 64 bit
