Burnout Paradise is a Racing game available on the 360. It can be played in Singleplayer modes.

Burnout Paradise is a Racing game. Racing games, although sometimes seen as a sporting sub category, are a well established video game genre in their own right.

Burnout Paradise can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.


We have our reporters and community keeping an eye on Burnout Paradise for you, and we'll keep you up to date with the latest developments as they happen.

Takedown stopped teasing and allowed competitors the climax of the crash, each with its own unique reward. Revenge stretched the danger still further by letting drivers nudge civilian traffic into the path of competitors.
