    Graphics mostly like Xbox360/PS3 version

    Burnout Paradise remains as fun as when it came out on Xbox360/PS3 more than 11 years ago. The graphics look mostly like original version except run native on Xbox1. Best is the install size isn't like all Xbox1 games that require often require 50-100+GB hard drive space. Remastered Burnout Paradise 7.6GB Install+159.73MB Update. It's good that EA didn't turn Burnout Paradise install into 20-50GB like many remastered games. Some games made for both Xbox1 and Xbox360 require 50GB install on Xbox1 version while Xbox360 version 8-16GB optional install while Xbox1 version graphics don't look that much better.

    For years I've played the Burnout series, Burnout 3 and Burnout Paradise were two of my favorite games out of them. After getting the Platinum for Burnout Paradise on PS3, I felt a sense of accomplishment, but also empty due to the fact I couldn't afford any of the DLC. Fast forward to early this year, and upon hearing the news of Burnout Paradise getting a remaster, I cried tears of joy. I immediately pre ordered and patiently waited for it's release. Being a huge fan of the game, I was excited to play it in true 4K, and man, does it look good. The game still holds up today, and I finally was able to play the DLC! This game brought back so many memories, and I can't wait for play it for years to come.

    When this originally came out, I didn't like it at first. I was used to the older Burnout games, where your cars weren't as heavy and the crashes were a lot more dramatic. Ended up going back to it a few years later and fell in love with it. Just had an absolute blast playing around. The fact there are no courses and you just take whatever roads you can is awesome. The remaster is great because it updates the look and also gets you all the DLC stuff, which is also really fun. Overall, I probably have more fun with this than I do most modern racing games.

    One of the best last gen racers updated

    Although Burnout Paradise, in my humble opinion, is one of the best arcade style racers from the last generation, the update to modern consoles leaves a bit to be desired. In an era of remasters, remakes, and HD versions of old games, Burnout Paradise has done nothing to even approach the bar, let alone raise it. In saying that, however, Burnout Paradise Remastered is still a fun, fast arcade racing game that I'm sure many will enjoy, especially at the discounted prices I've seen it lately.

    I love racing titles,so I couldn't resist when this game went on sale for $9.99. If you are into realistic racing,this game might not appeal to you. The game and cars are basic,but the gameplay is different. Race from point A to point B against the computer while crashing into other cars to slow them down. Kinda basic gameplay, but this game was a deal. You would have to be a hardcore fan to purchase this game at release when it probably cost $60. I will finish it then sale and make some money back.

    My expectation was just a tiny bump in graphics from the last gen version of this game. It seems like they built this game for this generation of consoles! It is beautiful, fun, and cheap! Don't delay buying this if you're a fan of Burnout games. I thought the running around town would annoy me, but if you can get past the obsessive compulsion to get everything it is an amazing game that is hard to stop playing. There's just one more race at the next stoplight. ;)

    Feels outdated

    I remember playing Burnout Paradise on the Xbox 360, and it did some things right and wrong. The open world was a plus and the environment was great, but the gameplay felt like it was a step back from Burnout 3 Takedown and Burnout Revenge. Now we have the remaster, which kind of makes the lacking gameplay stick out a little more with a more polished environment. It’s not a bad game, it just feels outdated gameplay wise compared to other racing games.

    While this may not have been the BEST burnout in the series, it offered someone new. Tons of cars, a beautiful island to explore, and better wrecks. This game was a big part of my childhood, or just the burnout series as a whole, so you’re dad-gum right I bought this beautiful game! And I recommend you do the same

    Ah, Burnout. A series that has been neglected for far too long. But at least they remastered the last game for modern consoles here! There just just so much to do. Every street, nook, and cranny has something for you do discover. Set speed records, smash billboards, or plain race. It is all there and looking better than ever. Seriously, if you like things like Forza Horizon, get this and really enjoy yourself!

    Burnout is an amazing game. It’s super fast paced and visually stunning to look at. I have spent hours racing and destroying cars and it still draws me back to it about once a month. It’s a definite purchase for the price. I’d recommend to fans of the original and people that just enjoy fast paced action games. Will for sure keep your attention for a long while.

    I've been a big fan of Criterion's work and only got into this game after enjoying some of their other Need for Speed games like Most Wanted U. Unlike NFS this game is much more of an arcade racer in the way that the focus isn't as much on realism and being a simulator (Gran Turismo, Forza, etc) as much as fun. The soundtrack is great and the remastered visuals are great to look at.

    It has been a while since I played the Burnout series. But getting this Paradise edition brought back the great times I had in years past. The game has been remastered to 4K with included bonus DLC packs. The visuals are great and I love road courses with no limits. This is a must have for any fan for the series and even for newbies looking for a new thrill.

    This is a modern remaster of a classic open-world racing game. If you love open-world racers, and a variety of arcade style race types, you’ll probably love this game. I personally find that the open-world style isn’t for me: activities and progression aren’t as organized as the older Burnout games, but the open-world discovery isn’t as enticing at the Forza Horizon series.

    I had been wanting a sequel to this game for many years. I played it a ton on my Xbox 360 when it originally came out. When the remastered edition came out I had to get it and it still holds up. It’s just as entertaining and fun as I remembered it as well as being equally challenging/frustrating but in a good way.

    If you are in the market for a fun simulation open world "racing" game, then this is for you. Drive anywhere and everywhere and smash in to as many things and cars as you like. If you sim racers, stay clear of this game. Only one down side is no actual manufacturer licenses. It would fun to destroy other car brands that you don't particularly like!

    I have continued to play this game on my One X through backward compatibility, but decided it was worth the price to buy the upgrade in order to access all the add-on packs and also avoid having to go through the old 360 interface. Did not notice any significant improvement in the graphics yet, but just started playing the new disk

    I bought this game right before Christmas but it wasn't until this past weekend that they actually played it. They always try to play racing games in arcades, but they are not tall enough to reach the pedals, etc. Now with their first racing game they are ecstatic!! Thanks!!

    I purchased this as I played the original on XBOX 360 and wanted a graphical upgrade. The best part of this is that all the DLC packs are included so you don't have to buy anything extra. Whether you never played before or want an upgrade, would recommend this.
