Is NFS: Most Wanted the Burnout Paradise sequel we’ve been waiting for?

49 second read


I loved the heck out of Burnout Paradise – the last Burnout Game Criterion made before being relegated to EA’s Need for Speed series. They’re busy with a new entry in the Most Wanted subseries…and it’s taking the sting out of the lack of a sequel to the game about crashing – because it looks, for all intents and purposes, like it is a sequel to Burnout Paradise.

Watch this walkthough video, showing some high-octane action in the streets of Fairhaven City – the open-world setting for Need for Speed’s latest crazy cop chases. Everything from the handling, the crashing crashes, killcams, sound effects and the open world diversions are eerily reminiscent of Burnout Paradise – and that’s ok by us.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
