IGN's Burnout Paradise Review and Video Review

Burnout Paradise has its share of flaws, but it's also incredibly fun. The change to an open world brought its share of issues, like having to use the map as a crutch to get around for a while, but it also allows for freedom unseen in any recent racing game. Most importantly though, Criterion has once again delivered a racing experience that can best be described as controlled chaos, one where even crashing is immensely rewarding. If you're even a remote fan of racing games, be sure to check this out.

Overall score: 8.8/10

I wonder what that extra 0.1 was?

some people wont even stop to read ur comment before taking the bubble with that title.

Edit: Joke yes. But that was a cheap way to heat up a news that you've posted.

but I've been lucky

and I would appreciate some more luck from the people who realize that was only a joke:P

EDIT - thats true..changed it

You now... 8.8... I have to disagree... I think it deserves higher than that.. sorry. So what you have to Drive all the way back to the beginning of the race... its "Lifelike" in that way...

But again... i can only go off the demo... but regardless... its going to be purchased the day it comes out (jan. 22)

think this game might be one of the best racers of 2008.

if you're a racing genre fan than missing out on this game might be the stupidest mistake of you're life. :)

Jeez even the demo was more fun to play than madden 08 which I got a few days ago. That's my opinion by the way.
