Speed and gleeful violence merge in one of the most delirious feats of game design ever.

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.

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 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.

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.
