We need a Burnout Game!

I was sorting through my old Xbox games today and came across Burnout 3, an absolutely awesome racer/crasher from back in the day. It made me realize that Criterion Studios hasn't developed any iOS games yet.

A Burnout Game would really translate well to the iphone/touch. I could just imagine how fun Road Rage would be and of course the classic crash mode, tilting your way through destruction. EA, Criterion - c'mon, make it happen!!

YES, you have good taste! Would love to see a port as I loved the game back when I played it on the game cube.

Waiting for: Airborne Troopers, Mini Motor Racing. Minisquadron 2, Tweetland, Car Jack Streets 2, Drive Forever, Turf Geography Club, Junk Jack!!

I actually have a working - though only partially built - Burnout type game on my iPhone. I spent a few months designing it before deciding it was too large a project at the time. Maybe I'll get back to it someday.

A lot of multi-platform, or so-called "console developers" haven't gotten into iOS development yet, and, in all likelihood, they never will. Burnout for the iOS will never happen. Gameloft could do a better job of cloning Burnout in a way that is more presentative of Burnout's core gameplay. Gameloft's Asphalt series has been around since long before the days of the appstore. It's really not a Burnout clone, although some people have tried to call it that.

Anyway, there's no reason to rehash over and over again why so many hardcore gaming developers are never going to adopt the iOS. Let's just say Criterion has bigger fish to fry and is chasing after much larger profits then anything that the appstore can possibly offer them. We'll leave it at that.

Gameloft someday making a true Burnout clone is the best hope you will ever have.

Considering EA's push into the iOS market, I don't see why this would be unrealistic. Even if Criterion didn't initiate it, if EA approaches them and says they're interested in publishing an iphone edition of a game, I find it highly unlikely that Criterion would turn it down. Hopefully, it will happen, because gamers would eat it up. It would top my wish list, that's for sure.

I heard that Need For Speed Hot Pursuit, is the closest thing to Burnout on the iOS.
Alternatively you could go buy an older PSP and get the 2(?) Burnout games that were developed for that. (had one of them and it was amazing)

So until Gameloft or EA releases Burnout you could go with the PSP (although it's somewhat expensive)

Favorite app of all time - Dungeon Raid

Eh no. I'm a huge fan of Burnout (not series, just the trademark) and I can personally tell you that it's 'close', but definitely not Burnout. Would certainly love to see a licensed Burnout title though.

And yeah get PSP if you are desperate for Burnout on-the-go (skip the horrible DS version). If love Burnout in general then buy BURNOUT PARADISE Ultimate Box. No arguments accepted.

Well, I can offer you some words of encouragement to start again!?

If something online is free, you are not the customer - you are the product.

Yeah, im not too sure about NFS HP being close to Burnout. Fast Five is probably the closest thing right now, (if you're a burnout fan, you should get it)

I've been jonesing for a Burnout game on the IOS for a long time! We'd all love to see that! Also a really well-made demolition derby in an arena setting with great collision detection with parts flying off realistically and a good sense of speed! The wait goes on.......
