PC Burnout Paradise review
Who says things can't be perfect? You can't say like this, you must say it's hard to be perfect. EA brings a perfect game, Burnout Paradise, a game from a series that defines my nickname (look older post).
This is a game that change the way we play racing game. This game have very realistic graphics, open world, realistic crashes... and more. When you open the game, you're greeted by Guns N' Roses' Paradise City (which gets boring overtime though). Once you log in your account, you will be impressed by the scenery.
The game have quite a lot of modes, it contains Race, Road Rage (taking as much rival as you can), Burning Route (Time Attack with specific car), Stunt Run, Marked Man (arrive destination without been destroyed by rivals) and Showtime (crash the whole streets). Each event offers different kinds of excitement, this is essential to the game to keep the players playing the game. It contain many different kinds of cars for you to choose from, start from Speed, which just go fast and agile while didn't care about the strength of the car. Aggression, don't care about speed and agility, just want to take people down with it's force. The Stunt car is in the middle, fast and strong to do stunts around.
It might be weird to have no specific route to reach your finish line, but after you get used to it, it is actually quite nice to play. With hidden packages like shortcuts, big ramps, billboards and more to find, completing all races doesn't mean its over, you have to find them all in order to complete.
It got online races and open world, been taken out or take them down is fun and making rivalry. and now with every streets have its name, time records, crash records, beating your friends in the streets is just like the icing on the cake. After take them down, we will get the photo of their reactions if they have webcam and vice versa if you been taken out.
Burnout Paradise PC version is a must have for PC gamer if you misses out PS3 and Xbox 360 version of the game. It also contains all the downloadable contents previously release on Xbox 360 and PS3 Networking, so make it a very good game to buy.
