Thunderbolt has posted their preview of Burnout Paradise.
"While the game has some time left before its full release, I can’t help but feel quite concerned. With the inclusion of all this free roaming malarkey, I fear Criterion have forgotten exactly what made the Burnout series so much fun to play – the racing. And it's that aspect of the game that is still undeniably brilliant, it’s just a case of the free roaming side of things getting in the way like some kind of badly parked car. As a big fan of the Burnout games, I pray that it doesn’t. There’s almost an irony in that a series so intent on promoting recklessness is like little boy lost without its basic rules and structure. It seems - for the moment anyway - that this once great series is running out of gas."
