Burnout Paradise Remastered Performance Review and Graphics Comparison

Introduction 

Not all racing game fans want an accurate driving experience like Project Cars or Assetto Corsa. Sometimes we want something that feels a little more arcadey, where players can unwind, accelerate to high speeds and ram their competition off the road without any fear of penalty. 

The Burnout series has been missing from store shelves for quite some time, creating a gap in the market that would be perfect for a successor, whether it be an official Burnout title or otherwise. With this in mind, EA and Criterion games have decided to remaster Burnout Paradise, giving gamers the opportunity to re-experience the classic with enhanced visuals and all of the original game's DLC. 

For PC gamers this means two things, first, that the title's Big Surf Island DLC will be coming to PC for the first time, and second, that the game will now look much better when cranking up resolutions to 4K, or perhaps higher. 

In this review, we will be looking at Burnout Peridise Remastered's performance on PC and compare the game's visuals to the original console version. Is the remaster a simple re-release of the PC original, or does this release provide a more substantial graphical boost? Let's find out!

I still play this. It still looks great and plays fantastic. Even on my 42"TV with 3D glasses using my NVidia GTX which can be utilized in 3D glasses mode.


In fact this game is a lot more fun than some o/t later games. Obviously it's "just" an arcade racer and not a simulation like project cars which is way too difficult without a steering weel and pedals. While this is great fun with keyboard and/or joypad



I'm looking forward to this reboot of a classic.
And yes, it's unfortunate that Studio's run out of ideas. But what more innovation can you put in arcade racers besides better graphics and sound if the controls are already good (or good enough)? What more plot lines can you use besides running from the cops or hunting down racers, racers hunting other racers, demolition trakcs, stunt tracks...



What did you expect?
Or should I say: What do you want?Quote
