Electronic Arts still haven’t officially announced Burnout Crash, which is strange because the ESRB just rated the game, providing a few details on how it plays as well.


As previously reported, Burnout Crash is an Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 title. Here’s how it’s described:


“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.”


A top-down perspective? That’s very different from what one is used to seeing in a Burnout game, so perhaps Burnout Crash is a digital download?
