Great score. It also got perfect 5/5 from GamePro magazine. Hopefully others give BP great scores that it deserves.

Thanks.
Great issue of OPM. 4 super great GOTY worthy games (MGS4, FFXIII, Burnout Paradise and Fallout 3) in one place.
Credit goes to OPM for the info and Bobinator2000 for the scans.

I love OPM. I've been reading it since early in the OP2M days. I always agree with the reviews they give and they reward games that are fun to play more than games that are impressive.

Is there a night/day cycle in the game?
I liked the demo but it would be weird having a open world and have it always being the same hour of the day.

wow, impressive score. cant wait to pick this one up myself
Shankle  +   2769d ago
I think 9/10 is the right score for it. It's not perfect, and lacks a great deal of variation or memorable set pieces which might be expected in a 10/10 game, but it's an absolute blast to play and very well designed. Definitely pick it up!

While I agree that it's not perfect, I disagree at lack of variation and memorable set pieces. Check the review. The game has incredible depth and variation along with lots of super cool spots. It's also super awesome online and a real blast :)
Can't wait.

I read the review a week ago :P
What i mean is that when you have a sandbox environment but all you can do is drive, no matter how well designed the roads are, it's never going to have the same sense of freedom as, say, GTA.
And by set pieces I really mean the kind that are scripted. While they're completely at odds to the spirit of this game, huge and imaginative set pieces can be absolutely incredible and game-defining. In burnout you're going to make your own, I know, but they'll never be as good. That's why this game just isn't a 10, even if it was the greatest racer ever created.
MK_Red  +   2769d ago
Uh, I see your points. Still, Burnout is racing perfection to me so it will end up a 10/10 in my book :) (Burnout junkie here ;) )

I can't really say for sure
seeing as how i haven't played the full game, but I am really really sad that the crash mode is gone seeing as hows thats all i ever played.
but the demo was pretty awesome at least for a couple of hours hopefully the full game blows my mind

MK_Red  +   2769d ago
Thank you both :)
Shankle  +   2769d ago
Oh come on then lets just go and rename the thread "Breaking News - Mk Red is a cracking good fellow". Frankly he deserves the recognition.
MK_Red  +   2769d ago
Thanks for your kind words :)

Thanks for a great read MK...
To be honest I am a little weary about the open city gameplay, since it's hard to see Burnout working with that type of gameplay.

I hope I'm wrong though, and this review seems to show my fears unfounded. It should be great.
MK_Red  +   2769d ago
Don't mention it :)
I'm also kinda worried but the full game seems be really deep and entertaining and on par with classic Burnouts.
Lack of classic Crash mode is still bothering me though.
Shankle  +   2769d ago
Now come on, you haven't player the new crash mode. Everything we've seen so far in this game has been top notch. Do you really think they'd let you down?

u da man mk
MK_Red  +   2769d ago
Thanks :)
Real credit should go to OPM UK as well as GT member Bobinator2000.
