This game is 7 years old and it's still one of the most amazing car games to exist.

ElyrionX puts it better than I ever could. I've taken the liberty of editing his poetry so steam doesn't replace it with hearts.

"Burnout Paradise has got to be one of the most frustrating game of all time... #1
Ok, don't get me wrong, I appreciate what the developers are trying to do with Burnout Paradise. I love the sandbox city. I love the fantastic visuals and smooth framerate. I love the diverse soundtrack. I love powersliding around corners even as I'm flooring the gas and boosting the hell out of my car. And I love the free awesome updates. But seriously, this game has some of the most boneheaded game design decisions I've ever seen. The worst part is that those game design decisions actually compound one another to create a huge clusterf*ck of frustration.

First of all, the lack of clear directions with regards to how you're supposed to get to your destination. So, you're speeding down the main avenue at a gazillion miles per hour, you're getting into the "zone" and avoiding oncoming traffic with such awesome-sauce skill that Michael Schumacher can only look on in awe, and you think that the race is in the bag. But you know you've got one more turn to make , so you take your eyes off the screen just for half a second. You look towards the top of the screen and see a tiny tiny tiny direction indicator beeping with a sound you can barely hear, you look back to the road and before you can even begin to figure out which one out of the twenty f*cking roads you see around you that you're supposed to take, you crash into an oncoming car. Either that or you turn into the wrong damn road and by the time you realize it, the other cars have already crossed the finish line. Race lost.

So what, you say? No big deal, just hit "Retry" and do it all over again! Yeah, sounds good to me! Except for one problem. There is NO "Retry" option. Yes, the Burnout gods have deemed you unworthy of an easy way out. You have to drive the five million f*cking miles back to the starting point to retry the race.

Alright then, so we gotta drive back to the starting point. Fine. Let's do it. But before we do that, let's open up the map and place a marker on where we would like to go. You know, so that we can get there by navigating using the mini-map. Makes sense right? Apparently, once again, you CAN'T. You cannot place a marker on the main/mini map to help you navigate. As a result, a five million f*cking miles drive turns into a ten million f*cking miles drive because you keep getting lost and keep having to pause the game to check where the f*ck you're supposed to go.

Oh, and remember me talking about speeding down the main avenue at a gazillion miles per hour in heavy traffic? So, it makes sense that you're bound to crash a lot right? Right. Guess what, Einstein? Every single f*ucking time you hit something, you're treated to a simply wonderful slow-motion oh-so-dramatic view of your car getting splattered. It lasts about five seconds. It's unskippable. Every. Single. F*cking. Time. In the total amount of time I've spent watching my car crash, I could have made five thousand f*cking sandwiches. As some of the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ around here who thinks mandatory game installs are f*ck-awesome would tell you, sandwiches are awesome. I don't disagree. But I can't make a f*cking sandwich in five seconds. So that's just five seconds of my life I'll never see again.

But wait, that's not all! On top of all that, the Burnout gods thought it wise to head out to the streets and find the most annoying f*cking as*hole with a divine name that will annoy you everytime you hear it, and to drop him into a game as a faceless voice who gives you the most f*cking useless advice and says the most annoying sh*t when you happen to lose a race because of the aforementioned boneheaded design decisions. I LOVE THIS!

Son of a b*tch."

One of the last great racing games ever made. Endless hours of fun. I have hundreds of hours on the 360 version, and I finished it to 100%. It's ashame that the Big Surf Island DLC isn't available, and unfortunately the vehicle packs aren't either on Steam, but through Origin. It's unfortunate that Criterion no longer exists, and the sole owner of the rights to Burnout is EA. Otherwise, it's a fantastic game, and would highly recommend to someone looking for a fun racing game. Just know it's not super realistic like Forza, and it's not supposed to be.

When I get more time I'll write a more detail review.

Extreme violence towards vehicles.

My favourite in the series is and will always be Burnout 3, followed closely by Burnout 2. While this game did ruin a lot of things when compared to the others, as its own thing, it's still an awesome game!

The best racing game ever created. Don't be fooled by my playtime, I have spent over 4000 (yes, fourthousand) hours in this game on my PS3 since it came out back in 2008.
I can't say anything negative about this masterpiece. There was so much content on PS3 with all the glitches, ranked racing, road ruling and endless driving. I met so many people through this awesome community, in my opinion one of the best gaming communities ever. I miss the old times, I don't regret any hour I spent in Paradise City and I will always remember every single player I made friends with. I guess it's not the same nowadays, but there won't be any game like this, ever again. I'm a little bit sad that my children won't experience something like this.

Greetings from (one of the) worlds best player(s): Meronas (RealBurnoutKing / RealBurnoutKings)

PSA to everyone buying the game, you can redeem the cd key included with the steam version on origin, where it also has 4 of the dlc missing from the steam version for only $1.50. If the key doesn't work, contact origin support and they should help you like they did me.

(This doesn't include Big Surf Island, as that never came to pc. Google that and I believe there was a mod being worked on to port it to pc, but I'm not too sure how far it got.)

Edit: Also the cops and robbers never made it over either, but the cars did get ported in the same mod that's working on bringing Big Surf Island over.

Once upon a time a handsome NFS Undercover met a beautiful FlatOut 3 and they had a baby called Burnout Paradise.

Let's just say the only way to know you have completed the game is when you have the golden F1 car, and when you race other people with it whole party just quits after 3 races with me winning by a mile.
Great fun though.

Stil one of the most fun arcade racers to play. Takedowns, challenges, takedowns, races, takedowns, stuts, did I mention takedowns? Missing two DLCs (one that is available only on consoles, but can be enabled with Vanity mod), but will keep you busy for plenty of hours anyways.

Here's Burnout Paradise, it goes like this.

> Here's a car
> Here's a giant city to play in
> The city is optimized to be fun
> Here's a bunch of classic and hard rock hits to listen to
> Go play

And then you PLAY.
And it's WONDERFUL.

One of the best car games of all-time. Nothing quite like playing this on a summer day and driving around Paradise City.

Plus I'd much rather drive around in this game than in real life. Atleast I don't have to deal with jerks.

Very much recommended, plus I love the song by ACDC's lead singer.

One of the best, most complex racing games ever made with almost unlimited amount of secrets, unblockables, challanges and so on. Might feel overwhelming at first.

Great speed, great crashes, great amount of content.

Might not be as good as Burnout 3, but still worth it.
