Burnout Crash [PS3] [QUICK&SHORT]

Overview
This titles keeps the giant car crashes and explosions from previous Burnout games, but this  is not a racer - instead it's a cunningly disguised puzzler that has enough depth to keep you playing for hours at a time - with 3 game modes across 18 maps and 270 medals to collect!


Major Points
Strategic - This game looks like a pile of explosive car wrecks and destroyed buildings, but is in fact more comparable to Tetris: lining up your pieces to make the biggest chains and destroying them at the right time so as to maximise your score. Each level has specific challenges, such as blowing up all buildings in the level, which earn you medals that allow you to progress through the game.
Gather cars on the road to cause crashes and time your explosions for the greatest destruction.
Exciting - There is of course the fun of smashing one car into another (although this doesn't quite have the impact of the previous titles in the series). This is made up for with a High Definition screen full of explosions, demolitions and "Super Features" providing spectacular finales - things like planes crashing, UFOs laser beaming down and giant mechas smashing everything.
The UFO Super Feature in action - destroying everything in sight.
Apparently Multi-player? - And this is another game that utilises the "Autolog" functionality, which displays your best scores and medals to your online friends. This feature only works, however, if you have any friends who play Burnout Crash (which I do not). It also looks for friends of friends playing Burnout Crash (again, none for me). So basically, all the online features are unavailable as this game is unpopular in my social circles - with no option to go looking for online challengers elsewhere.


Conclusion
Explosive thrills - crash, boom, screech, smash, bang, *sirens*, crash, boooooooom. If you like things crashing into each other and blowing up (a lot) then this will keep you happy.
Tactics, Challenges, Medals - there's a great deal of replay value to each of the levels in the game, requiring several tries to get the highest score and to beat the more awkward tasks. Much more depth here than you may initially think.
Autolog Failure - The highly addictive online features are only open to people who have friends who play Crash. Well, either I'm wildly unpopular or this game quite hasn't caught on yet - so I just get a message saying "Feature unavailable at the moment". A better matchmaking service, so that you could find other people to compete against would be of great benefit here.
