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.

    Yes, Yes, and again Yes! What an incredibly fun game. The first 45 minutes I was thinking...wow...what an incredible "realistic" racing game.Yes, Yes, and again Yes! What an incredibly fun game. The first 45 minutes I was thinking...wow...what an incredible "realistic" racing game. I haven't even scratched the surface of this game...And so much MORE realistic than other new ones I don't really need to mention that I and others out there own. So much more responsive. And if you've ever really "raced" on the streets of a major city or hometown? I can truthfully tell you that this racer is the closest thing to actually being in the friggin' car! I sincerely give it an 10++....You won't be disappointed spending $19.99 on this game or less! Yaaaaaa.....EA....You get major KUDOS from me!!! Expand

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

    Fan of the previous burnout games? I was too. Sadly, you will not be enjoying this SLOPPY, terribly made version.

    There isn't enough Guns N
    Fan of the previous burnout games? I was too. Sadly, you will not be enjoying this SLOPPY, terribly made version.

    There isn't enough Guns N Roses on Earth to make this game appealing to any real Burnout fans...

    Maybe next time.... maybe...
