Burnout paradise has free roam just like need for speed , fun events like road rage where you get a set number of take downs beffore your car gets totaled , cars in paradise can be hard to wreck as you can keep driving as long as the wheels stay on . cars have diffrent boosts and are stunt , speed and takedown cars . there are 130 cars with all dlc , 80 without and 4 motor cycles , dlc is amazing with the delorian, kitt for night rider the ecto 1 from ghost busters , and the general lee . online is great . the biggest and best expainsion big surf island adds 9 new cars to unlock and 7 hours to the game .like a 4x4 dune buggy a 70's style drag car a hummer like car and a few toy cars just for fun .my only gripe is the events all start at traffic lights you just burnout at a light to do a event .
I can't wait to get a PS3, so I can get this game!
I've been a fan of Burnout ever since I found every one of them; except for Legends and it honestly took me awhile to find it, at the same GameStop a couple years back. I gotta say, from the gameplay videos and the trailer I saw of this on YouTube, it looks freaking awesome!!! I just hope I'm right and that it's as good as all the others, and hopefully the Burnout Crash DLC is good too, because don't wanna waste my money if it's not. Long live Burnout!!!
game you will never get rid of!
This was the first game i got for my PS3 on my birthday of 09. This game is so fun i spent all my time just cruising round with my friends. for 2 years iv loved this game like a child.the graphics are great. they go into so much detail with the car. if you go up to a wall then scroll the camera twords the wall it will go past the body and you will see stuff into the engine in layers. iv played this game so much its the only one that iv platinumed. the one bad thing bout it is the races get to be boring after a while cause you go to the same 5 main destinations all the time for the end. but for online play me and my friends made up a race on the railroad that is extreamly fun to do and thats what we mostly do when we get online. we have many variations of it like relay strainght head to head garage change its really fun. another thing i love is the free roam style. who doesn't love a free roam race game which are few and fleating. over all this is a game you must have or else you will live with regret for the rest of your life.
Despite the fact that Burnout Paradise came out four years ago, the game is still amazing. It retains its replay value again and again with all of its insane DLC. The crashes and graphics overall are unlike any other racer. (Almost unlike any other game, for that matter!) The game offers a perfect mix between realistic racers and arcade racers, effectively making the "paradise" of a game for almost any casual gamer, despite any past gaming interests. I've seen people who literally hate racers fall in love with this game and previous racing game fanatics be swayed into addiction with this Burnout title. Although the open world might convince previous Burnout fans that this game is totally different, the game still stays well to the original fast-paced, insanely fast racing style that is signature to the Burnout series. Although the replay value is slightly dinted because of lack of community, the graphics, sound and gameplay are very thrilling and one-of-a-kind to the racing world. 9/10!
I just wanna race
pros: great online, free-roam, race and crash cars!
cons: controls, find race, difficulty setting, chopped with pricey dlc
I would just rent it unless you plan on buying download content
A thing that is disappointing about this game is how it's chopped up with pricey download content. In the game you only get one setting to race around on. So if you want more then you have to buy them that includes some cars. On a side note, It doesn't help that the game is slow at downloading. Well at least the great online mode is free.
The open world racing in this game is somewhat of a double edged sword. Which it didn't have to be this way. They could have had the free-roaming set into some sort of adventure with a story backing it. Then a different mode to start a race, but no. You have to find your race/events. You also don't get the option to change control scheme (besides using sixaxis) and the difficulty setting.
Best racing game on the planet.
"Burnout Paradise" is the best racing game on the whole planet. The goal is simple: Win a series of races, and compete in road rages and other events all throughout gorgeous Paradise City. When you win events, you get a mark on your driver's license. Earn a certain amount of wins, and you'll move up into the next class, going from Class D, up to Class A, and the finally, the Burnout Class. One thing that I personally get annoyed about playing the game is when my car is headed for like a wall or whatever, I do e-turns and other things to avoid smashing into the wall, yet my car still gets wrecked most of the time anyway. But that's not anything big. With that being said, there is basically nothing wrong with this game. In this game, you do big leaps with your car, and you can collect more than 75 cars. You can smash through billboards, leap over buildings, and all of that awesome stuff that would must likely mean death if said stunts were attempted in real life. I like the "Disney Cars" and "NASCAR" games and stuff like that, but this game sticks out in the racing genre of gaming. As I said before, it's the best racing game on the planet, one of my favorite games to play. Please do yourself a favor and buy this game. You won't regret it, and buying this game will be the smartest decision you'll ever make.
Great game, but not realistic at all
Okay, I am a huge fan of the burnout series and this game made me love it even more. First, the game is open world and for those of you who don't know,open world is when there is no mission system and you can just free roam around paradise city. The graphics in this game can be described in one word: Amazing. The cars look so real that it is hard to believe. The only bad part about this is in order to get an E10 rating they had to take out the driver in all the vehicles (Even the motorcycle) this is sad because that takes out of realism factor. When I crash, I want to see a guy fly through the window pretty much breaking every bone in his body. I will say that the challenge in this game is rather poor. The AI are smart and they stop at the red lights but you can takedown a car so easily that it gets old slamming people into walls and watching their car fly into the air like a plane and then crash into traffic... Who am I kidding, no it doesn't. Review to be continued soon.

Wow, best racer all year.
Burnout Paraidse is probably the best racer I've seen all year. It's better then Grid, Gran Tuismo 5: Prologue, and definitely Midnight Club Los Angeles and Need for Speed Undercover. It's fun and addicting, and it keeps you going for months. The graphics are great and the soundtrack is very nice. It's a smooth game, and I like it how they added the open world design. It changes it in a great way. It is a little bit hard if you take a wrong turn but possible to catch back up. The cars are good and there is quite a few of them. The update is nice. The bikes are amazing and super fast! Burnout isn't known for it's customization, but I do know something it is known for: crashes. And let me say the crashes in this game are awesome. They are very detailed and exciting to watch. The controls are good and using the sixaxis motion to turn is fun. The big city is very interesting and there's loads to do. It's even fun if you're just cruising around for no reason. So, yes. This is the best racer of the year, and it deserves a 9/10.
Not very good
I went to rent this game and at first I thought it would keep me entertained for at least a few days, but I was sorely mistaken. The first few minutes of the game are very poor and after that there's just too much to explore that you feel overwhelmed. The graphics are good but they don't help the gaming experience. When you go too fast the screen gets blurry and especially when you're racing. The mini-map isn't big enough to actually give you any sense of direction. When you're racing the car you're using gets totalled too fast and you even have to go to a repair shop to get it fixed, I mean that's why it's a game so you don't have to do that. If I have to take my car to a repair shop and to a gasoline station why buy a video game then. I warn anyone who thinks this is a good game because if you think it is then you'd be sorely mistaken and you'd probably just wasting money becasue this isn't worth the dough, not even worth renting.
