The Entertainment Software Rating Board has published its summary of Burnout Crash, detailing the levels of "cartoon violence" that the game provides. The hottest part of this story? Lobster attacks!

"This is an action game in which players earn points for creating traffic pileups," writes the ESRB. "From a top-down perspective, players initiate crashes by driving 'cartoony' vehicles (e.g., cars, trucks, vans, buses) into busy intersections; multiple crashes trigger score multipliers and rack up large 'bills' of property damage.

"Each level is accompanied by crashing sounds, small explosions, and vocal encouragement (e.g., 'Cool,' 'Maximum Carnage!'). In some levels, players are instructed to crash into police cars (e.g., 'Crash them before they bust you!'); in other sequences, oversized airplanes, tornados, lobster monsters, and UFOs slide across the screen, destroying any vehicles in their path."

Lobsters monsters? What!? YES!! As you may have gathered from some of the more random header images on this site, I love lobsters. They are the best animal in the sea, and now they're claiming the road. I think that's just made Burnout Crash a serious game of the year contender!
