DemoEdit

In February 2009, a demo for Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box was made available for download for PC from Criterion Games's and EA's websites as well as from discs that were distributed worldwide. In the demo, you start the game with the first vehicle (Hunter Cavalry) and progress to unlock the second two (Hunter Mesquite and Nakamura SI-7). All areas of Paradise City are accessible. Every event in Burnout Paradise is also available. You can even play online. However, the player will only be able to play the demo until the 15-minute time limit runs out.

Increasing QualityEdit

Nvidia and ATi graphics cards come equipped with software which can edit the final displayed quality. This software can be usually accessed via a manufacturer logo displayed on the right hand side of the taskbar.

ATi also offer a program called AMD Fusion Utility which can offer greater quality for those with AMD processors and ATi Graphics cards although this program can have negative effects on overall PC performance if used incorrectly.
