The way the vehicles crumple, windshields shatter, and pieces of debris go flying in every direction is second to none, making you appreciate each and every impact. The only quibbles we have with the presentation are the absence of a driver, and one of the most annoying announcers ever.

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!

I don't usually like racers all that much, but this one is the closest thing I've seen to Skyrim for race lovers.
The "Open world map" is a nice touch and the slow mo slam camera is wonderful.

You get to choose the type of "mission" you like so you're not locked to one thing. If something annoys the hell out of you you can simply do something else!

It has a very chill calm "adult" approach to it, unlike most of those annoying prepubescent racers that feel they have to throw boobs at you and be over the top "cool! dude bro!" to keep you interested.

Some issues with online and no window mode, but nothing too annoying.

The only racer that kept me interested for more than an hour.

8/10 would crash again!

burnout, one of my favorite game, the speed and Brakes so good and the crash was awesome and don't forget the best thing
the music, quantity or quality wise you will not be disappointed. There are a lot of songs that play while driving around so chances are if you play for an hour or two, you will not hear the same song twice :)



-9.5/10-

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.)
