Burnout Crash's creative director Alex Ward has revealed that the upcoming top-down smash 'em up was initially intended as a user generated content-focussed game for the Wii, "where you drew the road" with the Wii remote.
Would of probably been more acceptable.
would of been better than this shit
Should have Stayed a Wii Game
Looks like a wii-game
Correction, looks like a NDS game
I want a Burnout like 3 again, that was the best by miles. Sales in the arcade racing genre have been suffering recently as costs have been increasing, so they probably didn't want to make another big budget burnout incase it suffered from poor sales. Loads of companies are scaling back to make casual games these days because they have to in the economic climate. It really does cost many millions to make a high-quality console release and they would make lower profits per year because the game would take longer to make and they get a larger proportion of a downloadable title as profit to the studio. This will probably sell more units than a fully priced Burnout would. I think there are too many racing/arcade-racing games that use semi-realistic cars and graphics but have unrealistic game mechanics, it had it's appeal when the gameplay was on target but it hasn't been pulled off as well this gen. Off topic: The arcade-racer I want to see is Rollcage 3, that would fit nicely into a gap in the market left by Wipeout's proven maturity (it can't evolve much more as a game so it should step down and let another similar game prove its worth) - I hope Sony sees it that way too because they own the IP/studio, I think.
Would LOVE a new Rollcage, but ATD has closed down. I think Sony own the rights since they bought Pysgnosis which was the publisher for that series. Rollcage HD would be welcome!
when i saw the screenshots i thought it was a facebook game, well this is EA
Son...I am dissapoint. i want something that was like burnout paradise or burnout 3. but i'll give this game a chance if its good... cant complain about devs taking a franchise to a new direction.
burnout paradise was bad, burnout 3 is the best burnout game.
...and Revenge too! :)
It's a cash and grab attempt by EA to get casuals interested. Acceptable as long as it secures us some real Burnout game down the road. Edit: I'm not going to play it though lol...
ironically, it seems to have been canceled as a wii game, and is going to be a DD on PSN and Live. It looks bad too. It looks like an N64 game >_>
If they don't put PS Move functionality into this game I will be annoyed. Not because Kinect will be getting the limelight, but because it is something they could easily implement. It's just like these games like Future Soldier and Mass Effect. If they're makin the time for Kinect functionality, why not Move, which is arguably just as much effort, if not less.
