Burnout Paradise: Eurogamer First Impressions

Eurogamer writes:

"Which brings us onto Showtime, Criterion's completely insane replacement for Crash mode. The way it works is at any point while you're driving around and the mood takes you, with the press of a button you enter Showtime mode and your car explodes. And, uh, it keeps exploding. More specifically it keeps exploding in slow motion for as long as you can keep other people exploding. And who says games are childish?

The rules here are that you're given a massively generous amount of aftertouch control and the ability to explode several times, with each car you wreck giving you another 2 or so 'splodes. If you start in a decent spot the result is several minutes of sequential explosions, millions of dollars worth of damage and probably a big smile on the player's face, but this doesn't capture just how ludicrous Showtime mode is. When we heard it was playable online with up to eight players bouncing around like psychotic Katamaris, we had to ask Nick just how many drugs the staff of Criterion had to take to come up with this."

It handles nicely, looks good and the crashes are awesome! There's a few jaggies here and there but w/e.
