"Burnout Paradise is an incredible game with a lot going for it. It's blisteringly fast, full of exciting event types and one of the better looking arcade racers. But as much as I love Burnout Paradise, I can't help but be disappointed by the lack of a dedicated crash mode. This was, without a doubt, one of the best innovations to come out of earlier Burnout games and its absence was certainly felt. But don't worry; Criterion is here to sell you a stand-alone product that promises to bring all of the fun and excitement of the crash mode back to Burnout."
