Game of the Week: Burnout Paradise

March 10, 2008

Burnout ParadiseThis week I’m concentrating on Burnout Paradise.  I’m a big fan of the Burnout series. I’ve owned or rented each of the previous versions.  Nothing feels better than tearing though the streets catching air, drifting, and causing hugh crashes.

Burnout Paradise changes things up a lot.  Now instead of a world map or lists with different events to select – you as the player drive around Paradise City starting races, road rages and burning laps at intersections.  Their are also crash and timing challenges on each of the city streets. 

Burnout ParadiseYou collect cars in the junkyard and can repair vehicles in the repair shops.  New in this version -> you don’t get cars for completing challenges, you get a chance to “acquire” the car.  To get it you must perform a takedown out on the open road.  Afterwards the car is available in your junkyard.  Albeit damages -> so get it repaired!

The races are tougher since there are many routes to the finish line – but that makes it fun. 

I’ll get to log in about 5-8 hours of game time this week and I’ll update you with some In Play throughout.

I haven’t tried the multiplayer options but will this week. I’ll have a detailed “Over-30″ review in about a week.
