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.

Well for 1 this game is the best racing game ever created
Racing games are worse the better the graphics are and this
games graphics are perfectly balanced with the gameplay,
so its strength is most focused on the gameplay,
Playing this game with your friends is a fantastic experience
the driving and drifting feel great, ive never been more satisfied
with a car game since PGR3 I highly recommend this game for its
fun style gameplay and smooth engine fun multiplayer, and good
varity of vehicals to choose from.

Good:
1) Mindless fun.
2) Easy game to play for a while and forget.
3) Good attitude. Doesn't take itself too seriously.

Bad:
1) Repetetive.
2) Doesn't take itself too seriously.
3) Some things like the music in the beginning are repetited so many times that you get quite angry with it.

Good fun for a few hours.

I like driving my plastic formula 1 car, the tiniest tap from an infants hand going at 150Mph will send you flying at escape velocity.

This Game is amazing. i played this game and beat it five years ago. now im back to play it again! this game brings back memories i had years ago. run very well for low end PC's and looks great on mid-high end PC's there is so much to do in this game. start a road rage and crash your competition, do a race to the baseball stadium, set some lap times, or just simply drive around. so many good things to be said about this game, for example, bikes have been added in. great sounds, fun to experiment with, and just so much to do. the cons, however, are that criterion has abandoned this game. which is a shame that all the DLC it had on Console hasnt been brought into the PC master race platform. for example, Big surf island, and cop cars, are missing from the game, and that brings a tear to my eye. it is such an amazing game, filled with action and fun, it makes you want more and more. but i will never be able to fully relive the experience of big surf island or cop cars. still, this game is completly worth $19.99, although it was made in 2008.

11/10 cannot stop, and will not stop.

A lot more fun than I expected. Not a $20 game but more of a $5 game. If you're friends talk about this game or play it often and you want to know what you're missing out on, go out and buy it! It's nice how your cars from singleplayer carry over to multiplayer, and there's almost no loading when going from offline to online or vice versa.

There is simply nothing wrong with this game; it is one of the best racers I have every played. Though it is an arcade-style racer, each car still has somewhat of a different "feel" to it. The graphics are amazing, the damage breathtakingly detailed. One of the best racing game ever, bar none.

This used to be a great series, fast chases, great maps, and simple fun! However after playing this game for about 20 minutes I was absolutely disapointed. Terrible nevigation system, bland city, silly unlock system, and no story at all. Sorry but this game was dead the minute EA got its big money grubing hands on another great game series.

Would not reccomend, loved the racing aspects, but the techincal issues just made it absolutely unplayable. Ended up being unable to sign in via my 'persona' ended up registering the exact same one several times before I hit the persona limit and walked away. Got a version that let me by that, and ran into the fact that DLC is preinstalled, but it dosen't let you use it until you pay for it, as if I wanted stuff I didn't have on my hard drive. Add in the clunky interface and it just made me walk away in disgust.
