Burnout Paradise - "a silky-smooth 60 FPS"

Gameplayer has gone live with an article on Burnout Paradise that looks at its playability, its online and its new features. It includes some quotes from Criterion as well.

"But what really made our jaw hit the floor was that, aside from the initial leap from title screen to game, there are no loading screens anywhere; no menus to navigate."

One of the few racers I'm actually interested in. No loading too? Motorstorm's loading while changing vehicles pissed me off major!

I don't understand what's so good about the lack of menus. There's nothing wrong with menus so long as you haven't discovered a better alternative. The open city of Burnout is boring and it takes way more time to get into a particular race, challenge, etc. than it would with menus. Any advantage of no load times is destroyed in this way.

It's a bit like dumb reviewers complaining about linearity in a story driven game. In the last 2,000 - 3,000 years humanity hasn't been able to come up with a better alternative to tell a story, so stop complaining. That doesn't mean that there might not be a better alternative out there (or maybe games shouldn't be story driven at all) but if it's out there it's damn hard to find.

i think the game is great...the open world is different...the one thing i would like added though, is an instant replay for the races if you fail...rather than having to ride ALL the way back, it sucks

Burnout Paradise is the first game in the series I've owned on a home console. I have seen others playing other versions and while it looked like fun I never adopted one. I have Burnout Legends on my PSP, and it was the real catalyst for me buying Burnout Paradise. I really like the game and I even get butterflies in my stomach when it gets moving really fast. I think it's a great game, despite what might be said otherwise. The only flaw I find is in the controls. I would prefer a more traditional control layout with the low button in the button diamond to be the accelerator, and the left button as the brake. I guess I'm an old fashioned gamer, but I did get used to the control scheme.


yeah 60fps on ps3 and 45fps on 360.
