They both scratch the same speed-game itch. Jungle Speed has the novelty of grabbing a small totem when matching cards show, which you can see as either a plus or minus - or both. I like it when playing with mates over a beer, but find the game doesn't work if playing with children because they're intimidated by the prospect of their hands crashing into the big fists of adults.

It's also abstract, whereas Burn The Heretic has a theme. Again, this is a plus or minus, depending on how you see it. I get a sense of ridiculing blinkered religious conformity (think that "Who said Jehovah?" sketch from Life of Brian for its flavour) and you'll either get a laugh out of this or not.
