Burnout Paradise HD Remastered, PS4 Review

For many Burnout Paradise was the best of the series, an open world racing game chock full of stunts, jumps, races and sexy cars, not forgetting the spectacular crashes crumpling som of the shiniest crashes to grace the PS3 or Xbox360.

But there was one thing above all that stuck out to me, and that was the amount of charm this game has, charm that has me hooked, and is one of the many reasons that makes Ni No Kuni II such a fantastic JRPG.
