Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box

A complete edition of the racing game released in 2008 by Criterion Games. The title was a great success and received many DLC expansions during the months following its debut. The game takes place in the titular Paradise City which has open structure and across which the player can freely move while accepting various racing challenges. The title slightly refreshes the formula of the series but without resigning from its characteristic traits, such as the arcade driving model and spectacular traffic crashes. The mechanics of Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box are same as in its predecessor that was released one year earlier. However, the game contains all DLC expansions that were previously available only through the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live. These DLC expansions introduce, among other things, motorcycles and night races to the game. The Ultimate Box is the first installment of this popular console series that was released on PC.

Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box for PlayStation 3 is the next installment in the extremely popular racing games series. The title was at first released for the seventh generation’s consoles (PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360) and then for PC. The developers decided to refresh the classic gameplay formula by using technology that has never been used before. Most of all, the physical engine was greatly improved and now it lacks any scripts and affects all three-dimensional objects. In addition to that, the number of pieces of the virtual vehicles that can be damaged was increased up to almost one hundred. This allows the players to, for example, cut the car in half or change a coupé into a cabriolet.

Gameplay

The game takes place on the large area of Paradise City – a fictional metropolis which contains, among other things, an island with an airport, a bay with skyscrapers and hills that are free of any infrastructure. The player’s task is mostly spectacular driving and breaking the traffic regulations. One can drive against more than thirty various rivals and unlock new vehicles while progressing in the game. The vehicles aren’t licensed, but they are based on such cars like American muscle cars (for example the Ford Mustang) and European machines like Ferrari Enzo. During the races the player has great freedom of movement and he should look for shortcuts. Of course, it is very enjoyable to play the game with other players through the Internet.

Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box for PlayStation 3 contains all the expansion which in the basic version Burnout Paradise the players had to download from Xbox Live or PlayStation Store. These expansions introduce, among other things, motorcycles and night races.
