I've been split on this game. While I loved Burnout 3 and thought Paradise was good (although I didn't find Paradise as enjoyable as 3) AND NFS 3: Hot Pursuit on the PS1, the game has been getting slammed by user reviews on Metacritic. It has favorable critic reviews but I find that user scores are much more reliable. Although with your good score, I'm considering trying it. Maybe rent it after I'm finished with my new Steam games and Diablo 2.

I share your sentiments, in a way.
While I loved most of the Burnout games, I didn't enjoy the open world of Paradise as much as the old system of selecting events on a map.

I've had a chance to look at other reviews for the game, from both professional and users, and it really does make me sad that a lot of people haven't warmed up to Hot Pursuit.
It did take me a few missions to get into the groove, so to speak, but after that, I was totally hooked.

I really do recommend you check this out, especially if you dig Burnout.
Hope you like it.

I heard that it really playable, but I'm not sure how well my PC would take it...
I have 2GB of RAM, 512MB in GC, Intel Core 2 duo 2.53GHz...

I loved every NFS that went out... and completed every one of them...
What do you think; could my machine handle this one well?

The latest game I played was Assassin's Creed II and with normal graphics I had no problems...

I really hope it's well optimized. Thanks

PS, I know this is X360 forum, but main article brought me here

If you can play Assassin's Creed II, then you should be fine on this one. CPU and memory both look to be enough, video card is the main factor, but it should be fine if it could handle ACII.

I have been an insanely HUGE fan of Burnout Paradise and still play it to this day. I am a Stunt Run addict lol.

Anyway, seriously, I was considering getting this game, but everyone I know who has played it, who loved Paradise, said that this game was lacking. From what I have heard, it is not free roam, and it is just a giant track racer. I have also heard that the physics of the vehicles is far more "realistic" than Paradise. I have the feeling I would be uber disappointed in this game.

I can understand that.
This is definitely a different game from Paradise.
In contrast, I didn't enjoy Paradise as much compared to the previous Burnout games (like the free roaming, eugh).

Go ahead and give it a try if you get a chance, though.
