Game Informer: Burnout Paradise Review

"This is one of those games that is heartbreaking to review. That's not because it's bad; Burnout Paradise features some of the fastest and most thrilling racing I've ever encountered. No, the tragedy here is that, with just a few errors in judgment on the part of the developers, what could have been the year's greatest racing game settles for being merely good."

I want a next gen run from the cops game already.

Edit: In cars only-not GTA4.

Hopefully they can add a restart option in the game with an update, because it was just updated to 1.1. That caught me off guard in the demo because there were only like 3 races in the entire ~10 mile area.

Dam, there is just too many games to get this year. As of right now, I cannot afford this game, because I spend almost 900 dollars last week. But I will get this game at some point in the future.

I got a new xbox360 elite(got the RROD), Mass Effect, an extra controller. And I preorder 7 games for my PS3, and one game for my xbox370. I put down 20 each on all of them.

did you spend $900 on? buy a new console or something?

Kind of a turnoff that you can't retry a race without having to drive all the way back to the starting line.

Nearly everything else sounds pretty good, however.

and disagree. It's only a pain when you are serious about running that particular race. ANY stoplight provides a race. Drive a few blocks from the finish and you are ready to try a different event. Its a blast! I freaking love it! i really enjoy the differences in the vehicle handling. its awesome! freaking 9 out of 10 in my book....dang, i just noticed i have 23 ps3 games...i need to slow down a bit.

No retry (wtf), no Crash mode (WTF!?)...


Can the people disagreeing explain why you think no retry and no crash mode is good thing? I'd like to hear your opinions on the matter.
