I downloaded the demo the day it became availiable.
The graphics are fantastic. The gameplay is solid I can still play the demo for hours and discover new things to smash. Once your finished checking out the city step up and go online. Your allowed to connect with up to four players in the demo. Where you can takedown opponents and challenge them.
This game rocks.

From the day I purchased this game just after it's release in 2008, I've had fun with it.

Pros:
Tons of cars
fun online experience(like the old days of Midnight Club 3 DUB Edition on Xbox original)
cool crash scenes
unreal mega jumps
Several and fun race types(10 in total)
License system that unlocks new vehicles
DJ Atomika(personal preference)

Cons:
This game is for the not-so-serious racer
The music line up is rather tedious(but can be changed or shut off)
No vehicle tuning
the cars aren't real, many look similar to real vehicles, but all have fictional names
Getting all the points and races done for the final license can be a game killer as it takes a decent amount of time

Overall:

If you're looking for a racing simulator, or even a game similar to Need For Speed, this may not be your kind of game. However if you're a fan of the Ridge Racer series(specifically Unbounded) I think you'll really get into Paradise. If you like pulling ridiculous stunts, smashing your opponents into walls, and taking insane jumps, this is definitely your game.

Note- The price on Amazon for this game is very high. If you're able to get on XBL, PSN, or whatever PC has for a digital sale, you'll get a far better deal($29.99 for the Ultimate Edition with all dlc)

This game is well put together, with awesome graphics, a huge choice of challenges and scenery and vehicles (vehicle choices are earned). The scenery alone is gorgeous and varied, from palm trees and ocean view (and ferris wheel) at one end, and mountains at the other end of the world of Paradise City (and area). Ramps, bridges, railway tracks, parking garages, you name it, you can drive on it, jump from it, and have a lot of fun.

When you crash your vehicle, your vehicle shows actual damage and it will eventually need to go to a repair shop (which you have to find, or you can look for one on an online map you can easily print out and laminate with a 3M brand $15 printer from Walmartian like we did) and/or a paint shop.

You can drive on grass, a boardwalk, highway, railways, a dirt race track, an abandoned mine site, an air strip, you name it, and each car (or truck) handles differently. Crash through "billboards" and yellow barricades, or go into Road Rage mode and smash the bejeepers out of buses, limos, cars, trucks, whatever. There are also a variety of different kinds of races.

If the music selection isn't what you like, there are many options to change the order of what's played, or delete and add music from what's played, or turn off the music completely. The choices are yours.

There are many, many options in this game that other reviewers seem to have overlooked, including the music options.

This game is easy enough for a newbie to the PS3 world but can also be challenging for someone who has played for years.

You can play it alone, or go online and play a number of friends.

I enjoyed this game so much, I bought extra copies to give as gifts for friends, from ages 12 to 69, and they've called it 'Awesome!', 'A great stress buster', 'Sweeet', and 'Why didn't someone invent this 20 years ago!'.

Seriously, this game is a Must Have for any gamer, casual or expert :-)

This great game is always different, always fun, and the possibilities are almost endless. Also, updates or upgrades are available online, so this game just keeps offering more!

The game is great what more can be said. I played it and it worked without problem. The love the return policy with Amazon makes me want to buy more from this site

Great game. Don't update it before u enter the codes for the best buy and circuit city cars though. The update takes the menu for that out.

This was purchased as a gift - I already own this game and it is one of my favourites. What can I say, it's not a true racing simulation, but it's tons of fun.
