* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: ''Burnout CRASH!'', the downloadable game released in Fall 2011. Top-down viewing angle, no racing gameplay (the game is basically an expansion of Crash Mode), and cartoonish oddities like [=UFOs=] really set the fanbase into a fervor of contempt when it was announced.

to:

* ThatOneAchievement: The Signature Takedowns in ''Takedown'', which range from easy to unforgivably hard. Of note is 'Grapes of Wrath' and 'Tuk-Down', which require you to hit extremely small moving targets (wine vans and tuk-tuks respectively). 'Truck Torpedo' is also this, as trucks are the least common vehicle in the USA, and even when one does appear it may not even be carrying a speedboat.

** The "bang!" that's made when your boost bar is increased. You know you're ready to destroy when that happens.

----



* BaseBreaker: ''Paradise''; loved by critics and arcade racing game fans, hated by core ''Burnout'' fans.



* FridgeBrilliance: In ''Burnout Paradise'', a race is triggered by holding the brake and accelerator at the same time, also known as a [[TitleDrop burnout]].
* GameBreaker: The Carson GT Nighthawk. Let's see - One of the toughest cars to take down in a head-on collision? Check. Great speed and acceleration? Check. Easy to handle? Check. It's best just to avoid getting into a fight with the driver of one.
** The Supercar in ''Burnout 2''. Nothing save the Custom Roadster could touch it, and it wasn't easy thanks to the roadster's awful handling.

* PortingDisaster: [[ZigZaggedTrope Zig-zagged]] with ''Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box'' release on PC. On one hand it is a graphically-superior version of the game that contains a lot of content not found in the original release. On the other hand you have a version of the game whose majority of new content being stuff that have been released in free updates for the original game[[note]]Party Mode being the sole exception; it's still premium DLC for the standard console versions.[[/note]] while lacking in other content. Only the premium DLC car packs were released for download on PC, while neither the "Cops 'n Robbers" game mode nor the ''Big Surf Island'' expansion ever saw the light of day on the platform. Even worse, the PC servers were shut down about a year later, so the Burnout Store is no longer available on computer.
** However, the premium car packs are still legally available for download on [[http://www.amazon.com/Burnout-Paradise-Bonus-Vehicle-Online/dp/B00CX6G1IE Amazon]] in the US and [[http://www.greenmangaming.com/s/ca/en/pc/games/racing/burnout-paradise-bonus-vehicle-na/ Green Man Gaming]] in the UK, and modders are aiming to bring Big Surf Island to the PC version with the [[http://burnouthints.webs.com/vanity-pack Vanity Pack.]] "Cops 'n Robbers" mode remains unavailable, however.
** ''Burnout Legends'' on the DS falls squarely into this, being an a abortion of a game that wasn't even developed by Criterion. Thankfully the PSP version averts this.
* ReplacementScrappy: Showtime replacing Crash Mode in ''Paradise''.

this.



* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: ''Burnout Paradise'' for taking the game out of its closed-circuit roots and thrusting it into an open world without a restart function (initially) or a useful compass. Very mixed, though.
** What is truly getting this reaction all around is ''Burnout CRASH!'', the downloadable game released in Fall 2011. Top-down viewing angle, no racing gameplay (the game is basically an expansion of Crash Mode), and cartoonish oddities like [=UFOs=] really set the fanbase into a fervor of contempt when it was announced.

* SongAssociation: Seems to be a theme with games made by EA. Of particular note is the RealSongThemeTune in ''Paradise'', [[Music/GunsNRoses which can be guessed just by looking at the name of the game and the city.]]
