The Ultimate Edition Not So Ultimate! Review with images

AdvantagesLots of different cars, challenges and events to take part in and the crashes look awesome!

DisadvantagesThe free roaming is pointless and the game only has one single player mode!

"== BURNOUT PARADISE THE ULTIMATE BOX == The Burnout games have previously been a huge success with the most notably Burnout Takedown being the highlight of a series of top racing games. Burnout Paradise is available for PC, PS3 and the Xbox 360. Burnout Paradise has been changed in a lot of different ways but I wouldn't say its been changed for the better. Developers Criterion Games have added a somewhat strange free roaming system to Burnout a little ..." Read review

I dont agree with the hype

Advantages+Looks great +great soundtrack +some good solid hours of game

Disadvantages-problematic navigation process -Crash physics sometimes out of whack

"...been a fan of the Burnout series, so when i was promised this HD i expected something of epic proportion, unfortunatly however i keep finding myself disappointed, no matter how much i try to love it. I have played through alot of this game, and have played alot of Burnout titles before, and when playing paradise i am frequently delighted to see exciting features from previous games brought forwards and revamped to look alot prettier, however for ..."

Best of the Burnouts

AdvantagesGraphics, free roaming, great cars

DisadvantagesCan get a tad monotonous

"Burnout paradise is hands down the best burnout game released! No, I'm not just saying that because it's the most recent one to be released, I'm saying that because it's the truth! I feel that the series lost its way a bit and each new release was simply the same as the previous one but with better graphics and a few more small bits to justify the price tag. Burnout Paradise, however, changes all that. Straight from the main page you get a taster ..." Read review

Paradise has takendown all its rivals!

AdvantagesAwesome racing game - massive city

DisadvantagesOverwhelming at first

"Burnout Paradise is the most recent racing (and crashing) game in quite a long series of great, well structured arcade racing games. However this one certainly breaks away from the norm and enters into this new 'open-world gameplay', and in my opinion they have certainly succeeded and have created a massive 30km wide city perfectly suited to Burnout's nature - to race and crash! At first the city can be very overwhelming particularly if you were ..." Read review

Crashing and Racing Perfection

AdvantagesEpic Gameplay, Great Graphics, Wealth of Events, Excellent Online Multiplayer

DisadvantagesStunt Run game mode, No Splitscreen

"Burnout Paradise is the fifth game in the series of Burnout games but this is the first game to implement free roam into the game system. Firstly, the free roam system that has been included into this game must have given the people at Criterion Games a headache and I was expecting the game to come out as a kind of Need for Speed free roam rip-off. This however doesn't happen, the way how you are involved in the free roam straight from the start ..." Read review

Burnout Paradise Review

AdvantagesStunning visuals, Solid Multiplayer, 60fps, Long Lifespan

DisadvantagesSlightly Repetitive, Can seem a tad long

"Burnout Paradise, the latest iteration in the Burnout series lets players race, crash and generally cause road rage in the fictional streets of Paradise City, but is it any good? Burnout Paradise has a very simple structure for progress. Race, Win, Progress. This might seem like the game is very boring, it is however quite a fun, thrilling game, that when given the added benefit of Online multiplayer make for a very fun game indeed. The way ..."

Burnout Paradise

AdvantagesGreat Game Overall

DisadvantagesNone

"Burnout paradise is a graphically stunning game, there are 2 main types of this game the original which was released on the 5th of January 2008 and the ultimate box which was released on the 5th of February 2009. I got my burnout paradise city the ultimate box in February which cost me £29.99, because it wasn’t much dearer than the original copy which was priced at £19.99. Burnout paradise is a free roam racing game online and offline. The company ..." Read review

Burnout Paradise can be fun, but it's not really.

AdvantagesGraphics, great sound and free roam.

DisadvantagesRaces are boring, game is generally quite boring.

"The Burnout series is well known for fast paced destruction. Burnout Paradise gives you destruction, but not very good destruction. It's not terrible, it's just mediocre. It generally just consists of normal arcade racing, that I'd find in Ridge Racer, Juiced etc. So it's not unique anymore. There's about 5 games that can compete with this, and Juiced and Midnight Club are actually better. So there's no real reason to choose over this, there's no ..." Read review

Where is this paradise?

AdvantagesGood graphics

DisadvantagesFree roaming doesn't work well

"...a big fan of the burnout games. Burnout 3 had great races, cars, soundtrack and graphics and after burnout 3 came burnout 4. Burnout 4 was good with the added feature of being able to hit cars going the same way as you without crashing. So when I heard about burnout paradise I figured it would be a great game. I was wrong. === Gameplay:=== Burnout is, in short, a racing game. But unlike other racing games Burnout has always offered much more; different ..." Read review

Burnout Paradise, good gameplay

AdvantagesQuite a few challenges

DisadvantagesThe bike section is way too easy

"I have this game for the xbox 360, and there are quite a few challenges included in the game. The game is set in the bacdrop of paradise city, and altogether there are around 140 challenges which include racing, running other cars (Takedown) off the road, burning routes which get you upgraded cars. When you have completed a set number of challenges a new car enters town, and you have to ram it off the road. There are little extras, such as finding ..." Read review

Burnout Paradise - The Ultimate Virtual Drivers Heaven

AdvantagesVery fun to play on. Good Online Play.

DisadvantagesGraphics quality of scenery isn't that good.

"...criterion games the makers of Burnout Paradise constantly adding new content. This new content can be game modes, maps or cars. These are all available to download. This game is good if you like to explore as you are not bound to a track. This game is a 10/10 in my opinion. Overall I think this game is a must have. ..." Read review

Good fun, if you're on your own!

AdvantagesVery exciting and good longevity. Great online play

DisadvantagesNo cooperative gameplay.

"...screens, anywhere! All the usual burnout features are there, and more! However one thing for me is lacking... Cooperative gameplay. Maybe it is just me but when I am playing a racing game I like to be able to do it with my friends, not over the internet but in the same room. Don't get me wrong, the online play is excellent but in my opinion there is just something missing when you are yelling at each other through a mouthpiece and not face to ..." Read review
