See, that's where I'm not sure. I'm concerned about the fact that you can get any and every car available in the game from the very start so long as you can find them, and you can't customize cars more than change to a random paint color.
When I consider that it has police in it, which are reportedly fun to evade, I then start thinking about Midnight Club LA and how it doesn't cost 60 bucks.
What seems to be the consensus between Burnout Paradise and Midnight Club LA is that Midnight Club has better single player, while Burnout has a more active online community. Many people say that Need for Speed:Most Wanted (2012) is just Burnout Paradise with licensed cars and cops, and while I like the way Burnout Paradise looks, I'm not sure I'd want to pay an extra $40+ to have those two things added to it.
