Great game, but the online was rather annoying, trying to get people to play with. Even in it's prime, if you hosted a game, it took 2+ hours for people to start joining. Also doing the online challenges is annoying too because if you're trying to do a 2-7 player challenge and you have 8 people in the room you can't do it, you have to close the room and kick people out.

It's one of the few racing games I own. It's a hell of a lot of fun single player. I don't even bother with multiplayer.

I only play it single player. But it's awesome IMO. I got it on console, then it was dirt cheap on Steam so I picked it up again.

Is the server still online? The new NFS game is basically paradise with licensed cars, although I hear the crashes are a bit more tamed.

I hate it. The game tells you to get from point A to B and then your job is to navigate there without almost no guidance as fast as possible. Some people probably enjoyed the freedom but the speed the cars go at in Burnout made navigating a drag for me.

Burnout Revenge was much better for me. Repurchased it a few months back and it holds up incredibly well.

The single player begins to feel like a grind after a while once you've unlocked most of the stuff you still have maybe 1/3 of the events left.

But the first 2/3 are brilliant fun, if sometimes a little enfuriating with the rubber banding. Thankfully you'll have the version with the shortcuts and billboards highlighted better so you can see them more easilly. I suffered for the most part through unlit and indstinct yellow blobs.

One of my all-time fave online games, I still pop it in periodically. I mostly play NFS Most Wanted now since it's basically Paradise 2, but Paradise had more of an emphasis on teamwork than Most Wanted that I still prefer. Finishing the checklist of 500 co-op challenges was epic.

If you get it and play online, I'll join you.
