Burnout Crash Review (Playstation 3 Network Download)

Burnout Crash is focused like a laser beam on wreaking mayhem and havoc across a half dozen areas with 18 different intersections in three game modes. It’s fun and frustrating at the same time because no one really wants to be in a car wreck so sometimes you have to trick and coerce them into it.
Burnout CRASH packs hours of reckless chaos into an easy to pick up, but difficult to master gameplay experience. Each intersection requires different skills and strategies to maximize damage and debris. Also, a ton of patience for restarts and runs aimed at picking up a specific goal.
The game was developed by Criterion games and feels almost like Burnout Light, as if they wanted to focus on crashing but didn’t want to go into a full on 3D game mode so they have a 2.5D top down mode that reminds me a couple other games in some respects. With this perspective on the action it means that they had to really focus the gameplay to match the style and in that they did a good job.
However, what they didn’t really seem to focus on was diversity of gameplay as all three modes that are available seem almost the same. That’s because they are basically the same thing, drive your car into an intersection, crash into a car and then continue to grow the crash to score points. Sure, there are facets of each that make them slightly different, but they are so similar I sometimes forgot which mode I was playing.
