I like this game, even though it's quite unrealistic and can be fun landing on another car and taking them down. If every thing was realistic, how fun would games be? Not very fun I tell you! I would reccomend this game to people who like tricks,destroying and car racing games!

This is a great racing game that's all about driving in the open world of people-free Paradise City, of which the title song claims has green grass and pretty girls. Along the way, you'll be bombarded with advertising billboards for such things like Burger King, EVGA motherboards, Crash FM, and this very game. Sadly, you can only demolish one of these billboards, which keep reappearing continuously. Somehow, I feel real sorry for the cleanup crews having to fix up the damage caused by driverless cars. It's like Twilight Zone stuff, man!

While you repeat the events that you've already cleared with each new license, you get to hear a selection of licensed songs that usually repeat a pretty good deal. Or you can listen to past Burnout songs from a time Acclaim published those games. Maybe you just feel like listening to that Avril Lavinge song over and over. Did you know that song was also in Burnout Dominator AND in multiple languages? There are also classical songs in the game, but nobody listens to those. ;)

The damage model is quite glorious, parts flying off, cars flipping about, and [my favorite /s] the game going into super slow motion because you were too slow in reacting to a barrier right in front of you. It's like you know you're going to be taunted mercilessly, especially if you crash mere seconds before the time trial expires. But if you feel like crashing into things and causing mass destruction, there is a Showtime mode. It's not quite like the crash modes in previous games, but it counts for something.

Even with the minor flaws like the lack of a certain bit of DLC that the potato consoles got to enjoy, super slow motion crashes that test your patience, and the general grind with each new license, this is still a very enjoyable racing game that people continue to play to this day.

Burnout Paradise is an open world, survival horror game developed by Criterion Games, who are most known for making popular racing titles. The game is set in a horrific post-apocalyptic city, ironically called Paradise City. I can assure you however, there is no paradise to be seen in this hellish landscape.

You play as an unnamed, sentient car. The game revolves around completing the same missions over and over in order to upgrade your licence, to prove that you are king of the cars. The missions mostly involve destroying other cars, however, there are some racing elements involved here and there. As a working class peasant who cannot afford a luxury sports car, this appeals to my deep seated resentment of people who have more money than me.

[SPOILER ALERT] The story is fantastic. Towards the end of the game, you discover that you are not the protagionist at all. In fact, you are the villian. The real hero of the game is a DJ driven to madness named Atomica. Who has been broadcasting Paradise City's only radio station the entire game. His true motives are to get all of the cars in the city to destroy eachother, so that he can free humanity from its chains and rebuild society. Many games have tried to copy Burnout Paradise's clever plot twist, and have failed miserably. Ken Levine, eat your heart out. You can never hope to recreate this masterful storytelling.

In summary, Burnout Paradise is a masterpiece. There isn't a single game in existence that can match its artistic calibre. So I award this game ten out of ten cars. You will never get TYRED of this game.

(A lot of people are leaving comments pointing out the similarities to Yahtzees review. Fine, but Yahtzee wasn't the only person to think of this. This was meant to be a small joke amongst friends that just happened to get popular. Whining won't make me take it down.)
