IGN - The name Burnout carries a lot of weight for arcade racing fans. The first time I ever played the series, I was floored when I obliterated my car and watched it crumple in slow motion. This destruction was prominently featured in Crash Mode, where speeding your car into traffic added to the overall destructive score in an extremely pleasing, chaotic fashion. Developer Criterion Games has switched gears on the series, stripped the iconic mode to its bare bones, changed the perspective, and is sending it to consoles this fall in downloadable form. Meet Burnout Crash.
