The Party pack brings the social fun of BurnoutBurnout Paradise The Ultimate Box is a special edition release that includes the award-winning Burnout Paradise game, the previously-released Cagney and Bikes downloadable content updates, plus the brand new Burnout Paradise Party pack. The Party pack brings the social fun of Burnout Paradise into an offline multiplayer mode where players compete in different stunt, speed and skill events. The mode is designed to allow up to eight friends to “pass-the-pad” in dozens of quick-fire, turn-based challenges. The Party pack also includes a host of new features including a restart option added for racing and easier control of the early vehicles. Burnout Paradise proves that crashing is awesome! Next generation technology has enabled an unprecedented level of crash deformation allowing you to experience the most explosive pile-ups in the series’ history. Now the development team can realize their original vision for the Burnout franchise: an open world environment where you can do anything, anywhere, anytime. Feel the adrenaline course through your veins as you take to the road for the first time in Paradise City, where the action is all around you. Explore the city, discover events, and look for the best opportunities to crash, jump and pull signature takedowns. In Burnout Paradise you're given the keys to the city, but it's up to you to earn the keys to the meanest and most dangerous cars on the street, and earn your Burnout license.

  1. It’s a rare thing to come across such an excellent game which offers a steady supply of adrenaline and a brilliant sensation of speed. Especially considering that it’s a port.
  2. This generation's best arcade racer in an extra value compendium that really is a slice of driving heaven.
  3. This can be kept rather simple: Any racing fan with a need for speed, who hasn’t already got Burnout Paradise for console simply needs this cool package. The Graphics are great, the sound is amazing, the speed mind-blowing and there’ so much to see and do that you’ll be kept busy for a long, long time.

    First ever PC version of Burnout is a perfect example of a modern racing game in an open world with all the essentials that players want. No need for C-grade actresses at all. [Issue#174, Jan 2009]

    Undeniably fun; a slick arcade racer from an impassioned and talented development studio. [May 2009, p.66]
  6. With a clearer incentive to progress, Paradise would have the cohesion it lacks. But it's still a stupendous amount of fun to play. It doesn't offer a challenge for hardcore racing fans, but instead presents you with a giant island of opportunities for mucking about and enjoying yourself. Which is just fine. [J.Walker]
  7. Good intro to the PC for the Burnout series, but though it’s not meant to be a sim, we’d prefer a bit more meat on our games.

Перепройденная мною несколько раз, Burnout Paradise остается прекрасной и в 2020. Саундтрек, геймплей, графика, карта - все прекрасно. Игра абсолютно не затянута, после прохождения хочется сделать это еще раз. Если вы не играли в эту прекрасную игру, покупайте Burnout Paradise Remastered, там все тоже самое, но с немного переделанной графикой и всеми длс. Рекомендую всем!! Expand

    Very nice game, have been addicted to this for the last 2 weeks or so, I now have my A liscenes and rocking the house. The game looks very Very nice game, have been addicted to this for the last 2 weeks or so, I now have my A liscenes and rocking the house. The game looks very nice on the PC with no hick-ups or crashes, loading times are OK for me, about 1 minute to get the game starting, you just have to have a good PC =] I have been playing with the X360 controller and it really plays fluently, so no problems there. I'm really enjoying the 'mission' structure which you can excess almost anywhere if you're driving around. I'm really just chilling playing the game, doing whatever I want, listening to some nice gaming podcast. Expand

    For 2009, the game was awesome, and to this day it is the best recent racing game published by EA.

The city is big and fun to explore. There are some "collectibles" for the player to find which is always nice. The cars handles for the most part pretty good and the visuals are nice. What burnout lack however is variety. There aren't a whole lot of different tracks and the campaign is based around playing the same track over and over again against tougher opponents. Which gets a bit repetitive. The fact that there aren't a whole lot of different racing modes doesn't help. Some other stuff i am missing in the game is the option to restart a race during or after the race, turning off the cinematic view and the option to fast travel to the racing event.The game is still an enjoyable racing game and if you are looking for an arcade racing game for a couple of hours fun then burnout is the game for you.
