I had played the demo of Burnout Paradise and was instantly hooked, as I counted down the days to the actual release date I was reading every single review and piece of information on the game I could get my hands on. When I finally picked up the game it was no different, I was immediately immersed in the game, driving around the city, racing, exploring, speeding, jumping, crashing, stunting, smashing, it just didn't end. As I continued to explore I found that the more races I did, the more cars I unlocked, and once they were unlocked I had to chase them around the city to crash into them and add them to my growing car collection.
Once again, this game shines online there is something so incredibly fun about playing with others online and this time they included not only racing but challenges with descriptions like "crash into each other while jumping over the bridge" or "jump and do a barrell roll over seven other players". I suggest you pick this game up ASAP especially if you are a fan of arcade racers.
