    SOCOM is for sissies, Burnout Bikes is mans business.

    I need to pick Paradise up. This is one that fell through the cracks, but it's 30 bucks now, so I may have to find a copy. Burnout has always kicked ass, especially Revenge!

    Sweet, wish they'd send us a new crash mode also. That's what made Burnout so damn fun for me.
    Still though, Paradise has some of the best car controls ever, feels good just to drive around and do nothing

    So, bikes are hot. They lean into turns easily and get up to speed really quick. Though, they have no e-brake or boost -- the latter of which took some time to wrap my head around for a Burnout game.

    All the bike events are basically burning routes; point a to point b in a certain amount of time. There's 19 to do during the day and another 19 available at night. Also, there're 20 new in-game achievements tied to the bikes, a couple given out for distance ridden while pulling a wheelie. Others for completing freeburn challenges, that kinda thing.

    I love the day/night cycle, its something I've wanted since the game launched.
