    Look, it's really simple, Burnout Paradise Remastered is essential for fans of racing games everywhere. They just don't make them like this anymore (but they really, really should).

    Burnout Paradise Remastered is a breath of fresh air for the racing genre. It takes the realistic aspects of racing and throws them out the window with fast and furious driving that feels great. The sense of speed achieved as you zip through the streets of Paradise City listening to Soundgarden’s ‘Rusty Cage’ is truly astounding. It’s both frantic and fun.

    Burnout Paradise was packed with action and extremely enjoyable arcade racing in its initial release, and this remastered version is equally exciting, if not more, due to the upgraded performance of the current generation of consoles.

    Burnout Paradise is back... again. After 10 years Criterion's masterpiece is still entertaining as hell and looks beautiful on the PS4.
  5. After ten years, Burnout Paradise comes back from where it left itself. Online services are back online and there are plenty of players, to have fun like back in the day. Burnout Paradise Remastered is a charming piece for all the arcade race lovers.

    A classic arcade racer that was always ahead of its time and seems both refreshing, and thoroughly modern, even now.

    A paradox. Equipped with a purring, powerful new under-the-hood upgrade, the game delivers a pure driving experience that is on-par with many of its contemporaries in the looks and feel department. Unfortunately, it’s also running on well-worn tires. Some of the quirks, acceptable in 2008, haven’t been ironed out, and the game can feel sparse and comparatively tiny when scaled against later titles.

Now that I've played Paradise too, I can say, it is very fun, just like the old ones. Please don't just bury these fantastic games. Remaster more or even make a new title. I don't care. It can only be good (without micro-transactions). Expand

    Okay. I only played this game once, at a friend's house, in another State. So I can't compare it too much to the original. I do know that inOkay. I only played this game once, at a friend's house, in another State. So I can't compare it too much to the original. I do know that in some ways it plays like an older game. But it also does some things that even newer games don't do as well.

    Are all of the animations/takedowns the latest polygon setup? Nope. Are there times it feels a bit squashed and blocky, sure. But ask yourself, when was the last time you had this much fun in a racing game?

    I'll tell you - 10 years ago.

    I loved and played the Burnout series for hundreds of hours back in the day. And if they decided to redo Revenge I'd buy it (like this one) first day.

    This game lacks the all-out crash modes of old. The ones I'd play over, and over, and over, and OVER. Trying to get the highest possible scores as I laid waste to every car/bus/truck I could destroy.

    But this has a lot of fun moments, and it is ten times the fun of any of the Need for Speed games.

    Figuring out how to destroy billboards, or get to secret islands, or just discover new and interesting ways to beat your fellow drivers - it's a gas, gas, gas.

    Try it, you'll like it!

    A solid remaster that comes with all the additional content for a reasonable price. This almost sounds like something we should take forA solid remaster that comes with all the additional content for a reasonable price. This almost sounds like something we should take for granted but these days, not so much. So this came to quite a surprise to me. So I'm sure if you played the game back in 2008, you won't need much convincing here. I never played Burnout Paradise in 2008 so this was a new experience for me so to those few people similar to me, this review is for you.

    The game has mostly aged very well. The handling of the cars feels great, very fast paced but sometimes overwhelming if you’re using faster cars. The detection between cars needs a little improvement but it’s mostly there, you will crash without knowing why quite a few times. The events are fun to do although a bit repetitive overtime. If you’re completing the events, try not to use the DLC vehicles straight off as you will break the games progression. They are incredibly overpowered and you will cheese the game.

    But the exploration of the world, smashing through gates and billboards, getting the fastest times on roads and racing around with your friends online is where the game really shines at its best here. It is a very well designed world. Full of shortcuts, stunts and unique locations. It be hard not to say you will spend the majority of your time on exploration.

    I never really liked any of the freeburn challenges, like doing very specific tasks with random people online. It was a very good concept but it usually ended up with people not following the tasks, not understanding them and generally ended up with a lot of downtime waiting and people leaving half way. There's a lot of them to complete and I personally found it too much of a hassle to bother.

    To sum up here, this game is a very well done remaster and really highlights the reasons why we need another Burnout game. Well as long as EA keeps it’s greed out of the picture anyway. I never 100% completed it or anything but my short time with it was nothing short of enjoyable.

    i assuming most players have allready play the game on the old version but i will write my review for those who might be first timers on thei assuming most players have allready play the game on the old version but i will write my review for those who might be first timers on the game . first of all the game is superfun , it is just amazing i could say with all my honesty that is propably not the best racing game on ps4 but is for sure the most fun to play its the best on just racing and free roaming and do whatever you want in the city , only action , without story missions or cops or any career and that staff . the way that the cars moving in this game with all the speed and almost unlimited nitro and real trashing up the car scenes , it can blow your mind away . it has some fictional but still very awesome cars and the races and challenges can be just incredible . as for the remaster , i hadnt finish the game on ps3 but i have played a few times and i can say that game is very improved , for the graphics , for the sound effects , for the mechanics . it doesnt look like a brand new game but it is still way better that the old version . i give it 8 ,1 point for the graphics which are okay but not the best and 1 point cz i play it for 4 days i have almost reach the end of the game , so its kind of short to me . in general is a MUST have game for anyone who just love racing games Expand
