There are some elements around the edges that haven't aged all that well, but Burnout Paradise is still a fantastic racing game.

Burnout Paradise Remastered isn't really worth grabbing if you already have the original. Hell, said original is even backward compatible on the Xbox One right now. Without any prior experience though I would absolutely give Paradise City a spin -- even with its faults, it's still one of the most memorable and mild open worlds in existence.

Mileage may vary: Burnout nuts will be desperate for a return to Paradise City and will enjoy every minute of it. Those new to the series (and lapsed vets) may want to turn their attention elsewhere.

The remastered "open-world-arcade-driving-classic" is as fun as the original version... but it seems that team behind this new version had been working with the foot off the pedal. Even with better textures, it's hard to not remember the achievements of the original (60 fps, great graphics...), making the remaster even more "just fine".

It may a look a little basic compared to recent titles, but when it comes to gameplay Burnout Paradise still thrashes the competition. The racing is sublime, the stunts are spectacular, and there's always something to do round the next corner. It has one of the best soundtracks of any game – and yes that includes Avril – it's just a shame that some of the mechanics are dated and clunky.

Burnout Paradise comes to the current console generation to deliver one of the best arcade driving experiences. This remastered version does not translate in a huge difference, but this game still is a sure bet, even 10 years after its release.

The sense of speed is akin to watching Bruce Lee flail his nunchucks about while high on amphetamines.

An excellent open world racing game that is still as fun as it was 10 years ago... despite there's only a few improvements to the original formula in terms of gameplay, visuals or sound.

Burnout Paradise Remaster bring back Paradise City to the current gen with improved graphic. Even with ten years on his back the game is fresh like ten years ago.

Ten years on, this is still one of the best arcade racers out there. Hours will be lost just flying around the map being a nuisance, and a few old fashioned decisions won't dampen the excitement from playing a game this fast and furious.

The game manages to be more relevant today than 10 years ago. It's really fun, and we are glad to be back in Paradise City again! Can't wait to see what happens next in the series.

Despite showing its age in occasional places, the purity and simplicity of Burnout's arcade racing is as refreshing now as it was when the title was first released.

If you're a racing fan looking for something a little bit different (and a little bit violent/smashy) then Burnout Paradise Remastered is a good shout.

There is nothing quite like Burnout Paradise and I hope the series makes a full return with a proper sequel in the near future.

It didn't take much to fall back in love with Paradise's care-free attitude, an open invitation to embrace my inner speed demon

On the title's tenth anniversary, Burnout Paradise Remastered is a timely reminder that – like Avril Lavigne – this arcade racer can still do it better than all of its contemporaries. Seriously, there's no other like it, so when's it going to sink in? The only real downside is that the pricing's stupid – what the hell is EA thinkin'?

Look, it's really simple, Burnout Paradise Remastered is essential for fans of racing games everywhere. They just don't make them like this anymore (but they really, really should).

In certain respects, Burnout Paradise aged pretty well: under the revamped visuals and the smooth frame rate, this remastered version keeps the original gameplay unaltered, and that means sheer, chaotic fun and adrenaline-pumping races across Paradise City. Sure, some gameplay elements feel a little older today (where's the fast travel?), but honestly, who cares when you're having so much fun?
