Did Burnout: Paradise disappoint anyone?

   0
So I've been finally playing Burnout: Paradise the past couple days and, while I'm somewhat enjoying myself, I'm also very disappointed. I'm disappointed mainly because I miss stuff from the previous games:

* Crash mode. Obvious complaint. That stupid flippy mode doesn't even come close to being a satisfying replacement. And, before you say it'll be DLC, I don't want to pay for it. If it's free, maybe I'll be slightly happier.

* No retry. I've already bitched about this on a previous post, but it still sucks when I crash right at the end of a race and have some zip by me, leaving me with second or third. I want to immediately retry, but I can't.

* Online mode. I'm sorry, but I personally don't want to be in some free zone before a race actually gets under way, only to have the host decide to leave...I just wanna fucking race. Don't make me jump through hoops to race in a racing game.

* Open city / courses. This is what almost made me lose my shit. I was way way way ahead of all those other fools in a race and drifted into a turn right towards the end. As I drifted I ended up in one of those gated shortcuts. Ok, that's fine, I'll just take this. Bad idea. Because of the open world shortcuts aren't tailored for that specific race, so this "shortcut" took me clear past the finish line and much more. By the time I got back onto the street and backtracked I got third. Fucking A.

Now before people disagree, I'm not saying it's a bad game. I realize having an open seamless online experience is new and cool, and having a huge open city that you can learn like the back of your hand to destroy on any race is great. But I'm just disappointed compared to what the previous games have been.

The best way to sum this up is to say that while I was playing Burnout: Paradise, I instead got the itch to play Burnout 3 or even, *shudder*, Burnout Revenge.

What are your thoughts?
