Burnout Crash Review

Criterion games haven’t released a new game in about three years, fans of the Burnout: Paradise may be a little disappointed with Burnout Crash after announcing a new title.  Burnout Crash is different to other Burnout titles, focusing solely on what was previously a mini game, this appropriately title addition to the series focuses solely on driving flat out into intersections and cause as much carnage as possible.

The premise for this is simple, drive into an intersection and cost people money with the damage you can create.  The offers a number of different modes and a total of 18 different intersections, you unlock more by earning stars, this is an addictive system and encourages players to work to earn more stars.

Game play wise things couldn’t be easier, you drive a car into an intersection and crash into other cars, the more damage you cause the more your bonus goes up and allows you to make your car explode to create chains.  The game uses a top down view, much like GTA’s of yesteryear providing an excellent view of the entire intersection.  There are also a range of bonuses scattered throughout each intersection to also ramp up ratings. Game play wise everything works, it has a perfect pick up and play style which is perfectly suited to XBLA.

The graphics for this title are well suited to an arcade game, there is a cartoony and slightly over-the-top style, it all works.  There is obviously nothing here that is going to push the xbox 360 but it doesn’t have to, this is perfect the XBLA and helps to keep the costs down.  Despite the top down perspective the different vehicles are distinctive and importantly the explosions fit in with the rest of the presentation.

There is an annoying presenter doing voice over’s for Crash, but this is not the sort of game that you will play for hours on end and shouldn’t become too irritating.  Other than that, again nothing that will push the limits of sound, but for an arcade game everything, other than the presenter is great.

Final Level

Overall this is what an XBLA game should be a fun and addictive pick up and play game, if your favourite part of Burnout was the crash mode this may definitely be worth a look, there is value for money here and a very enjoyable game for a decent price.  Worth a look if you are a fan of explosions or looking for something to pass a bit of time every now and again.
