4.0 out of 5 stars Good... but my friends are real!, 24 Feb 2008
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Burnout Paradise (PS3) (Video Game)
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....

I would tend to agree, I too thought had two player mode and was gutted to find the only multiplayer option was via the internet.

I guess you could say I should have read the instructions more closely but when buying into the Burnout franchise I was amazed that they'd dropped something so fundamental (i thought) to their game.

it's not just this game - other driving games are the same, no sense in having a mate round when you cannot race against each other

Very odd, considering wipEout HD [which is a downloaded game!] has two player split screen, and what's more it can be split horizontally or vertically - horiz for old-style TV's is good, and vertically is great for HDTVs.
