Paradise - And not just for Driving enthusiasts,
This review is from: Burnout Paradise (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I've been lucky enough to play a copy of this in the US as it was released a few days before the EU version, and have to say that despite initial reservations, I have found it extremely fun and very accessible. Driving games are not my usual fare, given that I prefer RPGs and FPS games, but found this particularly fun.
Every intersection boasts a new event, ranging between simple races, Stunt combos in which you try to do as many insane stunts as possible to earn points, Road Rage, which involves smashing a set number of opponent cars, and Burning Routes designed specifically for particular cars.
Also included are Road Rules, first being the fastest time to complete a given street, and the second being the highest amount of damage during a crash. For those with a Live Gold account, you can play up to seven other people in the city, and it also updates you as to the various high scores.
There are also super jumpers to find and make, billboards to crash through, gates to smash and many other fun distractions that all in all add up to an excellent game, appealing to many, including those who would not usually consider the genre.
