Burnout Paradise: Gameplay

Burnout Paradise: Gameplay

We managed to get a final copy of Burnout Paradise a few days early here in Europe (Xbox 360 version), so we got to work as fast as possible so you guys could see a bit more of the game. So here is our first video, showing the mountain part of the map, that will maybe remind a few people here of some of my favorites tracks in Burnout 2.
MAJ: The showtime mode is showcased in this new video. It's fun and mindless, but it's quite a far cry from the "finesse" of the previous crash modes.


Mountain tracks (60fps, 360 version)
Showtime (60 fps, 360 version)

With a HD capture card. Can't say what I use for various reason, but a blackmagic intensity pro will do the job as well as mine.

Traffic looks a little sparse in the mountains, does it increase when you're in a race/event?

It usually decreases somewhat, but if you enter the crash mode it increases greatly.

It's a pretty good game, personally I'd rate it a very solid 8/10. I played it for 3 hours straight when I first got it, but started to get bored actually, turned it off for a bunch of hours and later put another 1 1/2 hours in. Take that as you will, just the fact that you're always doing things in the same areas gets to me.

    GriftGFX I'm surprised that performance still matters to you now that the X1X is around lol (2 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX And I'd say that most "normal people" would find that performance at this spec beyond acceptable. (2 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Translation: If DOOM is already running well on hybrid portable (in portable mode) what chance does their next game have of performing even better? I'd say those chances are pretty good, actually. (2 Hours ago)
