There are games that never get old, and Burnout is one of them. It’s still packing a massive punch after all these years with it’s no-rules racing. Burnout Paradise: Remastered slams over to the Nintendo Switch, and brings with it tons of white-hot, fiery crashes.
When it launched 10 years ago, Burnout Paradise was a revelation in racing games, where spectacular, slow-motion crashing was even more enjoyable than the racing part of the sim. Burnout Paradise Remastered offers a better visual punch, without changing nearly anything else.
GiN Reviewer Marion Constante is a Star Wars double agent, showing us gameplay from both sides of the Star Wars Battlefront Death Star DLC. First, she hops into a TIE fighter to shield Star Destroyers from attack. Then she switches sides and goes head to head with the empire, Rouge One style, in a mission to rescue an important droid.
Taking and awesome game like Burnout 3 and improving it is hard work, but that is exactly what Criterion did, with more crash action.
The developers of Burnout 3 learned that crashing cars is much more fun than actually racing them, and an instant classic was born.
