“When people think of Criterion Games, they often remember the Burnout franchise and for good reason. What we created 10 years ago, is as fun and unique today as it was back then,” said Matt Webster, General Manager at Criterion Games. “Burnout Paradise is an open-world arcade racer built to provide players the thrill of racing with their friends, in a free-form way that’s both seamless and immersive. Featuring Criterion’s trademark speed and destruction with awesome stunts and spectacular crashes. With the release of this remaster, we’re able to share this action-packed ride
and innovate online vehicle with a whole new generation of players.”
Burnout Paradise was released on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC in 2008. It is almost a 10-year-old game, but still worth a buy with improved graphics and visuals.
