Burnout Crash! coming to Xbox 360 and PS3?



Burnout Crash!

We first got to know about Burnout Crash! through the Australian Classification Website. Yesterday the following information was revealed through the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB).

"This is an action game in which players earn points for creating traffic pileups. From a top-down perspective, players initiate crashes by driving 'cartoony' vehicles (e.g., cars, trucks, vans, buses) into busy intersections; multiple crashes trigger score multipliers and rack up large 'bills' of property damage. Each level is accompanied by crashing sounds, small explosions, and vocal encouragement (e.g., 'Cool,' 'Maximum Carnage!'). In some levels, players are instructed to crash into police cars (e.g., 'Crash them before they bust you!'); in other sequences, oversized airplanes, tornados, lobster monsters, and UFOs slide across the screen, destroying any vehicles in their path."

The game has gotten a "Everyone 10+" rating. The developer of the game is still not known. There is still not official information about this game from EA. More info will most likely be revealed at the E3 Expo in the beginning of June this year.

From the content description Burnout Crash! sounds like a very different Burnout game. Cartoony with lobster monsters and UFOs does not sound like the Burnout millions of gamers all over the world has gotten used to. But if we look back at Burnout Paradise that was a very different Burnout game too. It would not surprise me if the developer of Burnout Crash! is Criterion Games as they seem to like experimenting with their franchise.

 I'm not sure I like the idea of monsters and aliens in Burnout. I've always liked the series because it's a bit over-the-top... But I don't know what to think about this...
