Crash and "Burnout"!
Welcome back, Burnout series! I thought you were gone, but what has happened to thee? It seems that you have lost your awesome graphics, exchanging them for some cartoon shenanigans. Along with that the in-car to third-person view to this far-away bird's-eye view doesn't help whatsoever. However you were able to keep the crash into cars and create what seemed to be an unlimited amount of explosions.
You may need to go to the hospital for loss of sanity after watching this!
Sadly no, I did not play Burnout Crash! with the Kinect setup, as I don't have that for my Xbox (so no getting the fat body off the couch to play this one!). I'm all for the Kinect, though, seeing as they have more games now that get your ass off the couch and interact, since that could help with the American issue of fat bodies. After watching the Hasselhoff trailer for this game I just want to huddle in a corner and close the door for the rest of my life. (It was scary enough when I was forced to watch the the Spongebob movie, and that Hasselhoff had the characters holding on to his ass while he was in speedboat mode, with I don't know what to propel himself.)
Burnout Crash! isn't all that bad, but it's just one of those things where I think they could've been putting so much more strength back into the main Burnout game. (If you're wondering what I'm talking about I put a couple Burnout videos at the bottom of this article so you can see.) It seems that this is a very cutesy type game to probably play with your friends, or if you got younger siblings or nephew/nieces to distract them with. For me it's just not making the cut to make it a game to keep going back to. I will have to say to the makers of the Burnout series to please step up to the plate and put out the next Burnout installment that we deserve within the next year. I miss the big car crashes and the great graphics that you were able to give us, and the destruction that you could cause in the original titles was absolutely gorgeous, not to mention a great stress reliever for people that need to get out of their system.
Don't take my word for it: go and give this game a try on Xbox Live arcade and PSN so that you can play and see it for yourself.
