The fifth entry in the gonzo racing series, Burnout Paradise gives players license to wreak havoc in Paradise City, the ultimate racing battleground, with a massive infrastructure of traffic-heavy roads to abuse.

I purchased this game and loved it at first but got boring after a couple weeks. It has good graphics and realistic crashes that always seem to be unique.

The side missions are simple and in a way kind of boring or pointless, they are either smash through gates, jump over stuff or smash … more
My favorite PS3 racing game is Motorstorm but this was almost as much fun. The cars in this game don't drive, they more likely fly because of the devilish speed and power that the player can inject.

I can't wait to play this again, after starting it this week I am always craving to turn on my PS3 and firing this baby up.
