Bad drivers of the world: unite III: even more Burnout Crash details

More On: Burnout Crash
Over at I found more info on the apparently upcoming, seemingly downloadable, Burnout title allegedly called Burnout Crash! (yes the "!" seems to be part of the title).

The ESRB, who just doesn't seem to care that the game has yet to be officially announced, released the following description on their website:

"This is an action game in which players earn points for creating traffic pileups.  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, tornadoes, lobster monsters, and UFOs slide across the screen, destroying any vehicles in their path.

Top down? Lobster monsters?  I really hate pre-judging a game before it's even been officially announced, but it's hard for me not to.  It was hard enough that they got rid of crash mode in Burnout Paradise, but now they don't even seem to take it seriously as something people other than 10 year old might want to partake in.  I really hope I'm just overreacting.  I know Burnout's Crash mode was never that serious, but they now it just sounds like they're trivializing it.
