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.

About the game

What's up?
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane FF15 had the best launch month of any final fantasy game in the US!!! and this performance does not include digital sales!!! (37 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @Tiz: Most big games were larger than what a standard CD-ROM disc could store, so it wasn't unusual that pirated games were lacking audio tracks or movies. (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @Tiz: Sega used a proprietary GD-ROM format (about 1GB discs) for storage. It did not stop piracy though as you with a bootdisc could start cd-r copies without the need to hard mod the console. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think it was apparent to people.. even before the system launched.. that the early launch of the Dreamcast was risky. So I can see how EA might want to play hardball to sweeten the deal on said risk (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX They also sold 2K and exited the console business... so maybe it wasn't all the best course of action after all :D (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz That's what I meant lol. NFL, not NHL. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks it's pretty shitty to deny a system because of Visual Concepts though. They hadn't even produced anything yet and EA was a giant even then (4 Hours ago)
