Burnout Crash

Burnout Crash is coming to iOS later this year, the platform it arguably should have been on from the start.

Burnout Crash sounded like an exciting proposition when its name first popped up. After the absence of Crash mode in Burnout Paradise, a game dedicated to the fan-favorite mode would be most welcome. More details made their way out before its official announcement, namely that it would feature a top-down camera view — a fact that turned many people off. 1UP’s review last month pointed out how the game felt out of place on consoles — it was released as a downloadable title on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 — but would feel right at home on iPhone or iPad.

Electronic Arts apparently felt the game was a great match for iOS as well. It’s now slated for a release this “holiday season” on select iOS platforms — iPad, iPad 2, and iPhone 4 are mentioned in the press release, but we’re checking on 3GS and older models with EA. It still features three game modes, 18 traffic junctions, six locations, Autolog support, and an ’80s soundtrack with Vanilla Ice and Gloria Estefan, among others.

No price for this version of the game was announced. The console game costs $9.99, and with the gap in between releases, the iOS version may end up being a few dollars cheaper.
