For some reason Steam only reports 30 minutes of play, despite the fact that I played for about 2 hours before I couldn't bring myself to do another event.

In short:
  • The events are simplistic and nearly impossible to fail unless you mess up badly or handicap yourself on purpose

  • The game makes even simple things like switching vehicles a chore

  • The world outside of the city is dull and uninspired

More detail:

My main criticism for this game is that it's not compelling in any way. I don't play racing games often, so I expected to lose at least some of the events due to a lack of skill, but it just didn't happen. In 2 hours of play, I lost 2 races, both times because I decided to ignore the on-screen instructions and tried to find a faster route. When I wasn't goofing around, the AI racers were so far behind me that they stopped showing up on the mini-map about 25% through the race, even though I was in a car that was meant to be slow, and had intentionally avoided shortcuts.

The other events were also too easy to be entertaining. In stunt events, for example, you're supposed to earn points by performing stunts. It's fun in theory, but the game seemed to be rewarding me points just for driving down the road. In one instance, I drove off of a cliff after botching a jump and earned 120,000 points. I had failed the jump and wrecked my car, but the game still gave me 10x more points than the event required to pass. Why would it do this? Even when you explicitly fail, the game won't punish you at all. Obstacles are just tiny annoyances for the player.

My final criticism is that the parts of the map outside of the city are just bad. The region features about 3 colors, events that are spread out andboring, and roads that present no challenge, even to a novice like myself. There are many shortcuts to mix things up, but they don't make up for the fact that the region is devoid of any memorable landmarks or interesting events. This part of the map simply isn't designed well, and I found myself avoiding it where I could.

I'm torn. Giving this a negative review is something that hurts me a lot, because I really love this game and I have done for years. I get annoyed when people start their reviews like this, but hear me out.

This game is fantastic. I first played it back when it first came out on the old 360, and it was a blast to pick up and play with my friends. The game is great and I had unlocked every car in the game. The driving is more than solid, and holds up well today. Got a great soundtrack, a lot of cars and an interesting world to play around in.

So why the negative review for the PC version? In fact, the negative review isn't for the game itself, it's because the DLC is not available on PC any more, at least on the Steam version. This is a huge shame because the DLC has some of my favourite parts of the game, especially the toy cars pack and, in this case, the time savers pack.

Of course, if this doesn't bother you, please disregard the negativity. It's a very good game, especially so with friends. If you don't want the DLC then consider this review a shining endorsement! I LOVE this game! But if you want my advice? Just don't get the Steam version. Get it on Origin instead as you can at least get the bonus vehicle DLC pack.

Completed this game twice on PlayStation 3, spent lots of hours online, set thousand of records, and I still can't seem to get enough of it.

Purchased it again just because this is really one of the best racing games. Graphics looks more dates than I remember it, although now I can play it in 3D! But the speed, the adrenaline, the sheer fun and the superb soundtrack are still there. God I missed DJ Atomica. Amazing place where the grass is green and the girls are pretty, won't you just take me home.

For this price the game is an absolute must-buy. Also still one of the best car destructions. And the best car weight feeling ever.

This game is amazing.
First off, this game has ALOT of replay value if you are up for it, like seriously I feel happy that on the xbox I made it to the platinum paint! Then this game is pretty much fun with friends, Like showing them glitches and they try to get you, but they fail so hard that you cannot stop laughing, So pretty much, In the least words as possible, #WORTHTHEMONEY.

It's quite a nice game, it reminds me very much of Rockstar's Midnight Club series, but the only reason I put with advertising is it subsidises cheap/free anything on the internet. Having advertising in a AAA game is unacceptable, and the fact that I possibly should have expected it from an Electronic Arts game just highlights how ♥♥♥♥♥♥ a developer they are.

So I have played alot of burnout on the first Xbox (not sure which version anymore) and had loads of fun playing it.
That's why when I saw this game on sale for only €2,50 I instantly bought it.

Pros
- You're free to do what you want.
- The music in the game is really good and if you don't like a song you can easily skip it.
- Easy to learn.
- Alot of different things to do.

Cons
- I don't really like the new crash system (called showtime in this game).
- No windowed option in the game.
- You need to login to a EA account (you can play offline without).
- I have 7 hours in this game and until now I find it a bit too easy.

Overall I really like this game and it was well worth my money, and I would recommend this to other people,

Rating: 8/10

Игра супер! все нравится. но и минусы есть:
-не подключает к сети хотя у друга все работает;
-нет спидометра и километража(это только для меня плохо);
-нет "БОГА" который показывает куда ехать (только повороты которых невидно и неслышно);
Короче 8.8/10.0 из-за серверов, к которым не подключает.

But seriously, the worst thing I can say about this game is that it didnt come with a complimentary blow job. Hit me up for some multiplayer

By the way, to get the DLC (WELL worth it IMO) go to the Origins website, all four DLCs come in a bundle for like $1.49, cheap as dirt.

Had this game back when I was 10 on console. Must have played 100+ hours on it just driving around, not completing missions or anything. Times were simpler back then... Seeing a car be crushed into a small cube was just as entertaining to me as an entire campaign of singleplayer content. I bought this game for PC years ago when it was on sale but never played it because I had no doubt in my mind that it wouldnt run on my potato computer. Yesterday (as of writing this review) I decided to install it just to see how bad my frames would be, and suprisingly I was able to run it at low settings at a decent 30 frames per second. It was the best feeling driving around paradise city again for the first time in 6 years. It also proved that little has changed in what can and can't keep me busy for hours on end.

About Bonus Vehicle Pack DLC: altough you can not buy it on Steam if you have an Origin account with the same email address as the Steam account and buy it on Origin it will show up on Steam too.
As for the game itself, it's a 10/10 even without the DLC. Get it !

In short, this is the best casual racing game for me.
If you feel bored with your current game, you can relieve it by play this game for awhile.

Anyway, this is an open-world racing game. So when you're in the race, feel free to drive wherever you want as long as you reach the finish line, which is good in my opinion.

The another good thing with this game is, I barely hit the brake when I need to drift around the corner.
so, yeah... HIT THAT MF NITRO BOOST BUTTON INSTEAD, FAM!!!

Overal 8.9/10 to kill the boredom.

That was the greatest game back in the days when I played it hours!
I absolutely loved it and still too! :-)

Single-player is awesome and multiplayer with friends is wicked! ;-)

Still recommend this game for everyone out there! :-)
