    rewiew for burnout paradise ultimate box by Antony.R (xbl vividownmaster):)

    well this game is a brilliant game but it gets borning after awhile , the cars and the bikes are fantastic especially the 2 bikes u get at the begining =]

    I dont play this game long because it gets me to bored so i would have to have to rate this game medium.

    i was slightly disapointed in this game , becuase i was expecting it 2 be like the other burnouts but it wasnt "/ *-)

    3/5 <--- my rating

    I personally enjoyed it. I need to pick it up at some point cause the demo really had me.

    I have to agree when I played the demo I was expecting it to be like Burnout 3 and 4, Its not a bad game just not as fun as I was expecting.

    I enjoyed the Burnout 3 / 4 style of doing things.

    I’m still thinking of perhaps getting the game when its £10 if I’m short of games to play.

    It's worth the price! If you also download the updates they put up on Xbox Live (don't know why they don't download and install when you play the game but never mind) then there's an option to restart a race instead of having to go back to the start of it yourself. Admittedly I would prefer to be able to start races like you did in Burnout Takedown and Revenge but I didn't mind having to go to missions in NFSU 1 and 2 and I don't mind it here. It's nice to be able to explore the map on your own and find nice little shortcuts etc of which you couldn't really do on the older games unless you tried a race over and over again (which I sometimes did, to get gold, but that's one of the reasons I can't be bothered to try and finish Revenge on the 360). There's also a party mode you get for free in the Ultimate Box (I have to pay 800 MS points for it as I bought the game when it first came out) but I don't know if it's any good.

    I love this game! We have a Burnout Paradise Racers group on the site. Nimrod, Trebor, KingzBurnz and myself love to play this online! Feel free to join us sometime (whenever we get playing again of course).

    i played the demo and the game wasnt bad. i liked it. its has free roaming which isnt in the older games. the older games was just about crashing. This game is about crashing and other things such as free roam.

    All I want in my Burnout games is to make a giant collision and get millions of points for the crash but they had to take that out of the game.

    Some people do not give this game enough credit (you know who you are folks). Yes, it is different from the other Burnout games, but this is a great game to play with friends and will give hours of entertainment to those that play it.

    You will not regret that purchase. Nimrod and I spend hours on this game and it never gets old.
