"Well, there's no question Paradise takes Burnout to a whole new level. Is it better though? Personally I'm inclined to think not. The open world city has definitely made for more expansive gameplay, but it's created too many problems, making the game more about luck than skill compared to how it used to be. Maybe they were being a little bit too ambitious, and it didn't quite work out as well as it could've done, but it's still a lot of fun, and that's what counts, isn't it?"
