Even after many years, it's still better and far more fun than pretty much all the racing games on PS3.
The only other one that came close was Blur, the only downside to that game is online is shut down and that was the best part of the game. Single player isn't horrible, but it's just not the same. --- PSN ID: RyuuHou24 "I never said that....and even if I said it, I never said it" - Dr Peter Venkman RGB
Split / Second is a worthy alternative to Blur. And the online is still active last I played.
But I agree about Burnout Paradise being the best racing game this gen. Mind you though, it's arcade racing. Online is still pretty active as well. --- Nurse Marcie: Do you like my body, Joey? Joey: =)
Simulation (real physics and courses): Gran Turismo 5. XL edition (most of the DLC and patched to 2.00) is $20. Shift is ok, but stay away from Shift 2 and ProStreet.
Arcade (NFS/Burnout/etc styled): NFS Carbon or Split/Second. each are $20. I've heard Blur is really good, but I've yet to try it, but what I've played, those two are the top (I've played all NFS games this gen, Burnout Paradise, and a few others) --- PSN ID: Troll_Face_Flame (formerly armyflame) X360 gamertag: ArmyFlame9 The more people post on GameFaqs, the more I lose faith in humanity.
