5.0 out of 5 stars
GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT, 29 Jan 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars
Ok then, i dont usually write reviews as i dont hav the time but i am one of the people who use the reviews to help me decide whether or nt i would enjoy this game, and tht is the reason i am writting here.
The reviews on here already, written by TRUEBLUE93 and MIKE NEWMAN are very misinformed, i understand that they believe they are helping and when they get it right i am grateful, but criterion have brought out this upgraded edition of the already amazing game burnout paradise for 2 very good reasons, an they are:-
1. To allow those who dont have an internet connect to enjoy the FREE DLC (downloadable content) packs they have given us (trophies, day and night cycles, and of course the bike pack)
2. To give new players access to all this great content from the moment you open the packaging
BUT they are also, which is where the previously mentioned reviewers are very wrong, they will be including the new FREE update which has:-
>new vehicle dynamics (making some easier for begginners to handle)
>more vibrant visuals
>stuntrun timer changes(you have more time given between stunts)
>road rage changes ( you will no longer get time added for takedowns after the target number is reached)
>Events are being rebalanced in anticipation for the upcomming booast car pack (release date TBA)
>There will now be an ingame store added as well, so you can purchase/download the content you want without having to leave paradise city.
>And the much requested feature that many of us have missed the ability to RESTART an event if you go wrong.
Now if that wasnt enough for you they have also, an this was my main point when i said the other 2 previously mentioned reviewers were wrong, will be including the PREMIUM CONTENT the PARTY PACK allowing you 2 enjoy the 8 player offline mode straight out of the box.
i hope this has help clear up any confusion, an would ask that if you want to write a review please check your facts before writting as someone who reads the reviews to help decide on my purchase it is important.
finally for anyone sitting on the fence about this game BUY IT, criterion have gone out of their way to deliver the best burnout experience they could and they have more than achieved it, the game is over a year old now and they are still bringing us the best in free and paid for DLC.
