Burnout Crash (branded Burnout CRASH!) is a downloadable action driving title in the Burnout video game series. It is developed by Criterion Games and published by Electronic Arts for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and iOS via PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade and iTunes App Store.[1]

In Burnout Crash, players drive into an intersection and attempt to cause as big a pile-up as possible. Unlike previous games in the series, Burnout Crash is played from a top-down perspective. Points are earned for causing damage and destroying the environment and other vehicles. Leaderboards powered by EA's Autolog service enable players to compare scores with other players.[2]

The game features three game modes and six different intersections to play, as well as seven drivable vehicles. For example the Vegas Saloon. The Xbox 360 version of the game also includes a Kinect mode, allowing players to use gestures to control the game.[3]

Burnout Crash! received mixed to positive reviews from critics. Aggregating review websites GameRankings and Metacritic gave the iOS version 81.33% and 77/100,[4][7] the PlayStation 3 version 70.35% and 69/100[5][8] and the Xbox 360 version 69.25% and 66/100.[6][9] Even though critics reviewed the game positively, most Burnout fans[who?] were heavily disappointed since the game is not similar to Burnout Paradise or any previous Burnout title for that matter, but was praised for returning the crash mode and heavily tweaking it while the voice acting was criticized.[citation needed]
