Manufacturer's Description

Burnout Paradise proves that crashing is awesome! Next generation technology has enabled an unprecedented level of crash deformation allowing you to experience the most explosive pile-ups in the series' history. Now the development team can realise their original vision for the Burnout franchise: an open world environment where you can do anything, anywhere, anytime.

Feel the adrenaline course through your veins as you take to the road for the first time in Paradise City, where the action is all around you. Explore the city, discover events, and look for the best opportunities to crash, jump and pull signature takedowns. In Burnout Paradise you're given the keys to the city, but it's up to you to earn the keys to the meanest and most dangerous cars on the street, and earn your Burnout licence.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant online, underwhelming offline 4 Feb 2008
By Dr Evil TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
'Burnout Paradise' is the fifth entry in the successful racing/smash-em-up series and is probably the best yet, giving you full access to over 250 square miles of the beautiful Paradise City.

GAMEPLAY - 5/5
Instead of going through levels like on the previous Burnout games, the city is completely open so you can just drive about finding secret locations, or pull up to the traffic lights (and by holding the L2 and R2 buttons) you can take part in one of hundreds of challenges that include races, takedowns, marked man and burning laps. When crashing into another car, if you hold the L1 and R1 buttons it will start Showtime mode (which is basically the same as Crash mode) where you must cause as many crashes as possible to build up the cost meter. The best thing about Burnout Paradise is the online play through PSN where you can play against and with your friends in a series of multiplayer challenges, where there are over 350 to choose from.

GRAPHICS - 5/5
Some of the best so far on the PS3. Driving around the city is just so lifelike and if you have played the previous games you may recognise some of the sections from those games. It's just a shame that the games is so fast, as you miss out on looking at the gorgeous locations.

SOUND - 3/5
The engine noise and helpful tips from the DJ accompany a soundtrack that won;t be to everyone's taste (mainly rock songs). From the likes of Guns N Roses to NERD as well as all of the tracks from Burnouts 1 to 3. Once you have played this for about 5 or 6 hours though, the track loops will have you switching the sound off.

LIFESPAN - 4/5
You'll either love or hate the open city format. If you love it (which you most likely will if you take it online) the amount of hours you can play this is endless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Made in Paradise... 11 Feb 2008
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The fifth installement of Burnout is placed in an open world environment named Paradise City. This new approach changes completely the concept created by the previous Burnout games, but is it for the better?

Definitely yes! Burnout Paradise revamps the notion of fun. Apart from the initial (and long) loading screen, there isn't one single load during the entire game. You can play the game from start till end without a stop in the action. When talking about next generation game enhancements, it's this kind of stuff gamers are expecting. Of course this change comes with a price, which is getting used to it. Having an entire city to explore with hundreds of events to run and hundreds of goals to achieve can be overwhelming at first but, as soon as you get the hang of it, you will never want to see another menu in your life. What do you prefer, spending a couple of minutes going through menus and loading screens or spending that time driving and having fun until you reach the next event? I would go for the fun.

Paradise City is packed with thing to do. You can race several cars in a race event. You can try to escape mad drivers in a marked man pursuit. You can perform crazy stunts in a stunt run. You can takedown other racers in a road rage. You can even prove yourself with a specific car in a burning route. All these are scattered around Paradise City. Almost each intersection has one, which allows you, most of the times, to start another event as soon as you finish one. Apart from it you have 400 shortcut passages to discover, 120 burnout billboards to destroy and 50 super jumps to try. Each street has one time to beat and one crash amount to achieve. As you progress the game, you unlock up till 75 different cars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good... but my friends are real! 24 Feb 2008
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
i agree with most of the positive things said about this game in everyone else's reviews... Expansive, Beautiful, Fast, Fun. There is loads to do, and you can just pick up and play it.

Admittedly my Uni's internet connection isn't compatible with my PS3, so I have no internet play (argh!) But some of my favourite bits of burnout were playing with my mate NEXT to me, taking them down and vice versa would be hilarious. I bought this game and assumed it had split screen multiplayer, but it doesn't, I want to play racing games (motorstorm) on my PS3 with my REAL (by real I mean present in the room) friends.... Why can't we do this? A major benefit of a console is multiple people on one tv, that's why you get onw instead of a gaming PC, right? Has anyone ever had more fun playing a game online then Mariokart or Golden-eye 4-player? Maybe it's just me, but I like to talk and interact with real people during a game (headsets do not count!) I am not enjoying this new trend to 1 player console games....

5.0 out of 5 stars Hugely accomplished and awesome fun 6 April 2008
By brainleek007 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
For me Burnout Paradise rocks on pretty much every level.

I've clocked some 30-odd hours of gameplay so have seen a lot of what the game has to offer and I've still lots to see.

I guess there are two main parts, the offline singleplayer nad the online game. The singleplayer game revolves around completing challenges dotted around the city at the many sets of lights and intersections to gain new higher grade licenses. The main motivation though is gaining new cars as you complete a certain number of challenges. These newer and mostly better cars can then be used in the online game.

Anyone familiar with burnout should feel right at home. The game has been expanded and the city itself is HUGE - it'll take tens of hours to learn it and all the shortcuts needed to give you the advantage. The map is very useful showing where all the events are and what type they are (road-rage, race, stunt run, marked man, burning route). What it doesn't show you are any shortcuts unless you look closely...

The variety of gameplay on offer is vast. If you like racing there's loads of races and if you like carnage there are the road rage events and showtime modes. SHowtime can actually be started anytime and lets you crash into cars whilst you try to acculmulate the highest cash damage bonus.

A simple press on the D-pad is all you need to access the multiplayer online menu. From there you can invite friends, start a game, arrange races or events - it's a really great system. If you want to end the game you can and the game just drops you seamlessly back into single player mode.

The graphics are cool and the crashes are amazing.
