When I first saw the top-down arcade game Criterion Games is trying to pass off as a Burnout title, like many fans I was somewhat upset, but how can I stay angry at a game that features the Pizza of Fortune?

Between some promising previews and these latest screens, I think I'm finally ready to give Burnout Crash the benefit of the doubt. It's not the high-velocity 3D mayhem I was hoping for, but any game that lets you spin a pizza to determine your fate can't be all that bad.

And look! They gave it box art like it was a full retail release and not a downloadable game. How cute!

Burnout Crash will release on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network worldwide on September 20.

Curious as to the ages of those who think "SUCK" compared to those who think "COULD BE FUN." My guess is that older gamers will fall in the positive camp.

Those who grew up on the super-simple coin-op games in the 80's may find an appeal to this game. Younger people whose first gaming experiences were much deeper 16-bit/32-bit era games may think it is dumbed-down or iPad-like.

Am I on to something here?
