Images of Crash Time

Images of Crash Time

RTL Games and Synetic unveil the first series of images for their racing videogame Crash Time, in development for the Xbox 360 and PC. The similarity with Burnout from a style point of view is pretty clear, there's even a formula one! The player takes part of an elite police squad called Cobra 11 and must complete various challenges varying from a helicopter chase to reconaissance runs in tanks.


All of this stuff is splitted into missions with three difficulties, forty tracks and hundreds of kilometers of road. Fans will be able to play with a friend on a same console in split screen or watch their awesomeness via the replay system built in-game.

Wow... can't really say the gameplay isn't varied! But yeah even the title suggests a Burnout rip, not to say that Burnout wasn't a rip of midtown madness that was a rip of ect ect.

Atleast it looks very very clean, which im 99.9% it won't look like come release :P

I love seeing grass in videogames. Too much urban or futuristic crap out there.

Crashes shown seem a little unrealistic in comparison to Burnout. Rip off or not, it looks hot.

After watching the video, it looks like one of them cheap bargin bin racers EG M25 Racer. So i won't bother spending anymore time looking at it.

because it IS a cheap bargin bin racer - RTL Games only publishes cheap bargin bin games (that's a well known fact over here in germany)

that explains it then. the damage system looks worse then burnout revenge...lol. it has that panel based damage where bits just fall off rather then bend and buckling (like burnout paradise) really doesnt look very good to me. not when burnout is just around the corner.

Wow, why did I think exactly "Wreckless" too? It's not THAT similar looking!

Anyways it looks kinda cool to me, is it really open world? Like Test Drive Unlimited? If it's bad, why is it bad? It looks more varied than Burnout Paradise...

YES!!!!! Man, I loved Wreckless and never thought I would see another game like it. I will be all over this game. Cant wait to see more!!!!

Reminds me of stunt man!, hope it plays better than that..
Commented on 2008-01-03 08:53:54
After watching that video it looks like a budget game, a reasonable one at that though.

Wait. Did 2 whole people just say they loved Wreckless? *shakes self out of daze*

So, the youtube vid of Crash Time makes me think of the game as more like a merging of Stuntman and Burnout. Stuntman missions/obstacles with the free frenetic driving/crashing of Burnout. Just without any of the flair or polish.

Not great quality overall. I would at this stage that this is clearly not a viable alternative to Burnout, unless the price is significantly less at retail.

True, but the two Cobra 11 games by Synetic (makers of World Racing 1 & 2 - www.synetic.de) at least way better than their über-crap prequels by Davilex. Expect review scores around 5/10 to 7/10 for this one.

Make that 3! :oD

Wreckless was an awesome game at the time! Ok, the handling was suspect to say the least, but it was the closest to Chase HQ on a modern platform that I'd seen for a long time! And the replays... :o)

I'll be getting this one, esp if it's a budget release. I really like the lighting on this!

after looking at the images I thought I was going to be the first tomention wreckless in this thread....that was a visualmasterpiece for the time, sadly, this isn't :(

it also looks like mercades benz world racing.

Make it 4, not only was the game good fun, the graphics were nearly the best on Xbox 1, if not the best, it was one of the few games that didn't even have 480p support on Xbox 1, so that probably lent to it.

The bloom effects were incredible.
