Burnout Paradise [NTSC] [Xbox 360] For the Xbox 360

From Amazon.ca

In Burnout Paradise players are treated to a rarity in the video games universe: a complete reinvention of an established franchise that equals, if not betters any of the previous games in the series. Yes, this is a large claim, but one that can be explained in a single phrase: Next-Gen Freedom.

Although the Burnout series’ over the top mobile action has been its calling card since it ignited audiences on the PS2 in 2001, and later on the first generation Xbox console, Burnout Paradise is the first game in the series that has been designed specifically for play on Next Generation consoles. This has allowed game developer Criterion to rip the training wheels off the game and rebuild it from scratch. The result is a new, expansive world that players can roll through at will. And what a world it is.

Enter Paradise City
Heaven on Earth, at least to road-raging, crash-causing Burnout fanatics, Paradise City is your domain and ultimate proving ground in Burnout Paradise. This expansive driver’s playground stretches across 250 miles and encompasses all sorts of road driving conditions, from fun-in-the-sun seaside cruising boulevards, to mountain roads and downtown gridlock. But regardless of what stretch of asphalt you find yourself on, the beauty of this place is that nothing is blocked off and your wits are at least as important as the horsepower under your hood when it comes to racing here. Check out Paradise City’s five sub areas (click the links for sample images):

Burnout Your Way
Unlike in previous Burnout games, Burnout Paradise not only puts the keys to your ride in your hands, but places you squarely in the driver’s seat when it comes to where you can go and what you can do.

Along with wide avenues and crowded highways, the open game design of Paradise City is also jammed full of hidden side streets, back roads and alley ways. These can be used as short cuts in races, that is, if you know where they are. As you explore, commit these potential short cuts to memory because they will definitely come in handy in a tight race. And since we are talking Burnout here, players should not expect uneventful, genteel contests of speed and precision driving. In Paradise City players are always free to slam, shunt and wreck opponents in their bids for supremacy and they will. Also, new to the Burnout series, races can now start anywhere, anytime. Just pull up to a stoplight and spin your wheels to start one in one of five different event classes:

  • Classic Race
  • Road Rage
  • Burning Route
  • Stunt Run (new)
  • Marked Man (new)
Instant Online
Burnout Paradise also keeps the mobile carnage coming while simultaneously setting the new standard in online social gameplay. With the new ‘Easy Drive’ feature you can find friends online and with the click of a button invite them to a race. Once they’ve accepted the race will start immediately. That's right, no more annoying wait times at online lobbies and servers. And keeping in touch with friends is easier than ever.

Team up or Takedown
In the winner-take-all universe of Burnout teaming up usually isn’t the first option that comes to mind, but on these rough and tumble streets it's a good option to keep in mind. With more than 300 FreeBurn Challenges packed into the game, players always have the choice of going it alone against the field as a whole or joining forces with up to seven of your buddies in user-created race routes. Either way, if you are victorious in your takedown you'll get the chance to talk some trash as you exchange Mugshots with your victim via an optional camera hooked to your gaming system or your gamertag/PSN avatar if you prefer to keep your identity on the down-low.

Showtime: Crash Anywhere, Any Time
And finally since a new Burnout release wouldn't be complete without a little something special in the wreckage department, Burnout Paradise continues the carnage with an update of its familiar 'Crash Mode.' Renamed 'Showtime Mode,' players can now crash, bounce and scatter their ride in any location and replay the wreckage over and over in slow motion. One of the most addictive and down right fun features of the game, players activate the mode by simply pulling both triggers on their controller and if they are good enough can also immortalize their Showtime moments on the leaderboards for all to see.

Driving fans this is Next-Gen at its best and definitely the Burnout title you have been waiting for.

Having played pretty much every game since the inception of the series I must say that Burnout has finally arrived. While all games of the series have been great, this one deserves the mark 'spectacular'. For the first time you can explore a fairly large area in free-play. The entire game world is available from the get go for your exploration. All known event types such as races, road rages, stunt drives, crashes etc are embedded and available in game play, typically invoked at an intersection. Crashes can be invoked any time in free play, at any place. As you build up your collection of cars, attention is paid to event types, such as race and stunt cars and it is advisable to select your vehicle carefully based on the events you plan to participate in. There isn't much more to say to this game other than it's a must play if you like this type of arcade style crash and burn racing. The environment is rich on challenges, on and off the main roads and will not let you down in any aspect. If it's all done and over, the game can be extended with an add-in, plus a variety of vehicles can be downloaded for a fee. Interesting also that EA this time around introduced motorcycles, adding a whole new touch to the game.

I find Burnout Paradise to be fun, but the open world gameplay can get kind of confusing, and the traffic makes it hard to race without occasionally crashing. I like the graphics and the sense of speed of the game, but I wish more cars were unlock at the beginning of the game. The setting, music and sound effects are great. I had more fun with Burnout 3: Takedown, but Burnout Paradise is fun as well. I wish Burnout has a restart race option, so I can re-try the race without driving all the way to the beginning of the starting line which can take a few hours.
