Criterion isn't working on new Burnout Paradise DLC

As much as I hate being the messenger on this one, it's got to be said: Criterion Games is finished putting out post-launch content for Burnout Paradise. It's understandable if talk of the canned add-on ideas got you all fire...

Time travel, boats, and other scrapped Burnout DLC ideas

When it comes to downloadable content on consoles, Criterion Games is leading the way. Taking a fun game (Burnout Paradise) and then significantly expanding it to the point where the original concept is unrecognizable is not ...

Here's a first look at the Burnout fanatic's car of choice

Besides adding a fantastic new location to Burnout Paradise, the "Big Surf Island" add-on brought nine new vehicles, all of which are pretty rad for plenty of various reasons. But there's one car that I bet 99% of p...

Burnout devs: If you've maxed out a system you suck

I can just see Burnout's technical director, Richard Parr, reading EA's quote about the 360 being maxed out and rolling his eye to high heaven before slamming his face into his palm and muttering something about "idiots ...

Review: Burnout Paradise 'Big Surf Island' DLC
by Jordan Devore

With Criterion Games constantly providing such a steady stream of add-ons, Burnout Paradise seems to have more in common with a platform than an actual videogame.

The core experience has evolved time and time again, and the game has yet to stop feeling fresh, but fans like myself have been eagerly awaiting the release of the definitive downloadable content, "Big Surf Island," as if it has some magical healing ability.

Does it live up to the hype? Did it cause me to spontaneously become giddy like a schoolgirl? You'll have to read the full review after the break to find out.

Construction on the bridge connecting downtown Paradise City to Big Surf Island is finally complete! Well, the bridge still has some construction going on but that's not going to stop anyone from heading into the island. Plus, all of the remaining construction makes for some pretty sweet jumps!

I got to visit Big Surf Island when I tried out the Cops and Robbers DLC a little while ago and the new island is a great addition to the Burnout Paradise experience. It takes everything that’s great about Paradise City and brings it all together into one place.

Fly on over the jump to find out more about Big Surf Island.

Rumortoid: Criterion developing its own Need for Speed title

Could a Criterion Games-developed Need for Speed be on the cards for a 2010 release? Seeing as how EA is currently overseeing the production of not one, but three separate NFS games, I'm willing to believe almost anything at ...

This past week, EA invited me out to give the new Cops and Robbers DLC for Burnout Paradise a test drive at their Redwood Shores studio. Can you believe that it’s been over year since Burnout Paradise launched, and they’re still supporting this game with new content? Criterion loves you all very much.

The Cops and Robbers mode is very simple -- one team is the cops and the other team is the robbers. The goal for each team is to find and retrieve gold that’s located somewhere in Paradise City, and return it back to their home base.

Hit the break for more on the Cops and Robbers DLC.
