5.0 out of 5 stars GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT, 29 Jan. 2009
This review is from: Burnout Paradise - The Ultimate Box (PS3) (Video Game)
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.

You sound very defensive of this game, almost to the point I would say you are a employee of Criterion. The truth is if you own the original and play alone there is little reason to upgrade to this version as 90% of it is free if you download the latest patches for the original Burnout Paradise through Market place on Xbox 360 or PSN on PS3.

It's just another way to make money on a old game, not saying it's a bad deal for people without internet access, but it's not really needed for everyone else. You can pick up Burnout Paradise cheaper than this and fully upgraded with the free patches it's almost the same game as this version which costs about 10 pound more.

It's for those who haven't got the game yet and want the full package straight off.

Also, look at the guy's typing - would Criterion really employ him?

LOL, don't knock the guy. I thought he was very helpful!

I didn't see anything wrong with the way he wrote about the game or 'typed' for that matter. I found what he said very imformative and I will be buying this version of the game at some point because of it :)

I have Burnout Paradise already but what I want to know is if I get this and sell my original. Can I go to the extra Island or do I still have to download the Island pack, as I do not want this on my PS hard drive or the Extra cars. If not I'm not getting it.

Posted on 7 Aug 2011 23:49:23 BDT
but does it come with paradise island?

Posted on 17 Feb 2014 00:49:26 GMT
Does this come with all the dlc including the island pack? Cause I bought the original game on psn but the whole dlc pack is £16, but if this comes with the island pack then I may as well get this, please respond
