Burnout Paradise - the last game of the famous console Burnout series and the first - on the PC. Sparkling race without any rules and restrictions, but with a very decent system damage, which allows you to destroy any car to the last screw. Traveling to the big city, you can choose not only the standard circular races.
In Stunt Run mode, participants compete in the performance of mind-blowing tricks, and Road Rage-destroying cars opponents. For the first time in Burnout Paradise can drive on two-wheeled transport - on sports bikes.
Plus, this will be added to special places and modes that are intended only for bikes. Also, the game will be dark.
- Full freedom of action. From now on, before you are a city of skyscrapers, bridges, beautiful coastline and mountainous terrain nearby.
Freedom of movement is not limited! You yourself are looking for a venue for regular races or skate aimlessly through the streets for fun.
- Miracles on bends. In Paradise City you will find a wide range of exciting mini-games. The longest ride on the counter without a frontal collision, the longest skid, dashing parking between two cars was close - here bored!
- Hundreds of cars. Each member of the movement can become part of the grand accident! Arrange the most extensive and spectacular accident in the history of the series, use your imagination, and victory will be on your side!
- Mad rivals. Besides you on the roads Paradise City romp yet thirty-four autos. Each of them has unique methods and techniques of driving. Be careful: the rivals try to do away with you as soon as possible!
Burnout Paradise reinvigorated Criterion's ultra-successful smash-up
racing series when it launched this time last year on the Xbox 360 and
PlayStation 3, and Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box brings the series'
trademark racing action to the PC for the first time. With solid
online and offline play, an almost staggering number of events, and more than 70 vehicles, Ultimate Box is at the front of the PC racer pack.
The amount of variety in the game is huge, and how you approach it is up
to you; explore Paradise City's open world at leisure, unlock the
70-plus vehicles one at a time through single-player events, or join
other players for races and challenges online. Couple this deep variety
with the fact that it's hugely fun, and Burnout Paradise is easy to
recommend. In addition to all of the content from the original
console game, Ultimate Box also includes all of Burnout Paradise's
downloadable content released to date. First up, there's Codename:
Cagney, which adds the Stunt Run, Marked Man, and Road Rage modes to
online multiplayer. The Bikes pack adds two-wheeled racing and a
day/night cycle to the series for the first time. And last, there's
Burnout Party, the first paid-for content to hit the game. Burnout
Party is a pass-the-controller-style offline party mode for two to eight players and is a fun new way to experience Burnout.
options are largely unchanged from the console version and include
normal race, Stunt Run, Marked Man, Road Rage, and Burning Route. For
those new to the Burnout series, in Stunt Run you chain together
drifts, jumps, and boosts to achieve combos; in Road Rage events you
need to eliminate opponents by
smashing them into traffic or objects; and in Marked Man you have to
reach the finish line before your opponents can destroy your car.
Burning Route consists of time trials from point to point, and by
completing them you'll unlock an upgraded model of your current ride.
Unlike in Burnout 3, The crash mode and aftertouch takedowns from Burnout 3
are missing from Paradise, but it does have the Showtime mode, which
lets you take control of a wreck through the streets of Paradise City
and rack up a damage bill in the process. Showtime mode isn't as
strategically crafted as the challenges in Crash mode, but you'll still
get to dish out plenty of carnage on unsuspecting traffic.
The biggest new feature this time around is the Burnout Paradise Party Pack, which adds an offline
pass-the-controller multiplayer challenge mode for up to eight
friends. Once you've set up the number of players and game types,
you'll compete in a series of minigames where you earn points for
successfully passing a challenge or beating your opponents' scores. The
Party Pack offers instant gameplay for when you and your friends don't
want to compete in longer, more demanding events, and it consists of
three challenge types: stunts, skill, and speed. Stunts are a
collection of insane tricks, such as successfully landing a cliff-top
jump. Skill challenges include driving into oncoming traffic with boost
on for as long as possible. Speed challenges might have you smashing a
few billboards and then racing back to the start within a designated
time limit. The Party Pack is a great addition that finally brings offline multiplayer to Burnout Paradise.
online is as simple as hitting a button during gameplay, at which
point you'll join your friends or enter a random lobby. The online mode
is seamless, and there are no loading times; you can drop in and out
of online games at will. You can set up simple point-to-point races
all over the city when hosting a multiplayer session, or tackle a
Freeburn Challenge set by the developers, with different challenges
depending on the number of players. Burnout Paradise included 350
challenges, and there are now an additional 140 challenges with the new
packs. The challenge types are varied and include straight races,
beat-the-clock events, jumping over other players' rides, and other
more-complex multipart challenges, such as meeting at a designated place
and racing a route to an end point while hitting specific jumps along
the way. Challenges are a lot of fun, especially when you have a large
group of friends to play with, and they give the online play a lot of
