The ousted Burnout Crash game is not the same Burnout you remembered in Burnout Paradise. At its core is still a racing game that glorifies speeding along at high octane speeds and beautifully reckless crashes, but it’ll also have some really strange gaming twists.
According to an ESRB rating post on Burnout Crash, the game will have cartoon graphics, giant UFOs and massive lobsters. Here’s what the official rating description says:
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.
So um, any questions? MTV speculates that this might be a downloadable game, considering it’s a top-down perspective game. Frankly, I don’t care because from that description Burnout Crash looks like oodles of endless fun. Burnout Crash has my pre-order dollars!
