Default Burnout Paradise

In searching for off road games I've snagged this one...and I'll tell ya..I FREAKING LOVE IT! Played yesterday and today a bit, just at 15%, exploring the town and hitting cars like mad man..absolutely incredible game..I can't think of a negative side.. (later edit: o yea, after some races, I saw that there's no pilot in the car lol )
My favorite races are marked man and road rages..can't get enough of TAKE DOWNS..on the other bastards Having some trouble with stunt races but will get them eventually..I'm putting together a lil' movie..will add it later on. Oh and..no favorite car so far..

I grabbed this but like most games I found it became way to repetitive. It might be better online as it perhaps would be more of a challenge, but single player was too easy.

I grabbed it back in the day on my PS3, and god, love every moment of it. All the free updates (motorcycles anyone?) made it more then it's weight in gold!

In the category of driving game, Burnout is a great one. It is what NFS should have become.

Eh, it got very repetitive after a few hours, I haven't touched it in a while.

That and they removed my favourite game mode where you try to create the biggest accident possible. I don't remember what it was called.

Yes I have this for the 360, and the PS3....and soon for the PC.

EXCELLENT game indeed. My favorite place is in some mining gully. The ramp on top is fun as heck to do tricks off of.

I can never find the place though.....I always stumble across it though.

Favorite car so far is the one that says Burnout on it.

this game is ton's of fun.

The rock quarry is one of the best places to do stunt runs. I have this on my ps3 and have unlocked almost evrything (except the burnout elite license, thats brutal). This is alot of fun online providing you can get with a group of racers who aren't complete morons.

My Favourite Cars are the following

Carbon Carson Concept - cruising, take downs
krieger W16 Track Edition - Racing, Burnouts

ton's of fun. Also the audio banter on the radio is really funny.
