The art of setting clear objectives and overacheiving.
I loved Burnout Paradise. Every gate crash, superjump, stunt run and race was an amazing time. I was finishing this game when the Dualshock 3 was released and made the experience all the better.
BP doesn't do everything you'd think a driving game (or even a Burnout game) should, but what it does, it does very well. Blistering sense of speed, cringe-inducing crashes, interesting locale.
If I had to bitch about it, here are my top gripes:
- cars aren't different enough.
- can't turn off the slowmotion crashes - this gets boring after a while.
- can't restart challenge (kidding).
All in all, top tier game, no doubt about it.
