All great modes from last Burnouts are back and new ones are coming almost every month as buy-able content (DLC).
The highlight of Burnout Paradise is the multiplayer mode where dipshits from all over the world will fuck up your day. You just hate playing this game because of those jack asses.
If you're expecting 20+h of tense gameplay you will get it - that fucking awesome, but if you're expecting ultra hardcore game you will be dissopoitment. It's not Grid on ultrahard level.
It's the win for EA and fail for hardcore gamers.
