This was my favourite platform series as a kid. As much as I enjoyed sonic ,mario etc I was probably too young when I first came across them to play them seriously and the crash series was one of the first games I played with friends where we aimed to complete it.
This is open world platform game. It was the fifth crash game to come out and unlike earlier games it isn't exclusive to playstation . You can also get it for the xbox (or more importantly it can therefore be played on the xbox 360).
Graphics- Decent enough for time.Playing through it there isn't any noticeable lagging or anywhere the game freezes or where there is a long loading time.
Value for money- the used price on amazon is quite cheap at £3
In this instalment Crash Bandicoot and Doctor Neo Cortex are forced to work together to stop the evil twins from destroying the wumpa island. This appealed to me with the twins being evil mutant parrots.Being someone who has grown up with pet birds It felt believable that the bad "guys" could be avian :P
Character wise - Whilst this does have a few new characters and sometimes when this is done you kind of think Oh no ... it still clearly has the most important characters from the previous games as well as the new characters bringing an unexpected element to the game . I don't think it would have been as good if they just had cortex doing something bad again with crash saving the day.
New stuff- Being able to choose between the characters.crash,cortex or Nina cortex
I liked being able to use cortex as a weapon to beat the bad guys.
controls- this is similar to other crash bandicoot games but if you haven't played any then I would say that it is easy to pick them up.
This is not two player. I don't think this is a problem just take shots about or play until the character dies... saying that you always have the one friend who can play for hours without losing a life until it gets really hard then you die within 2 minutes on your go...
I would recommend this if you have played any of the other games in the series, I would say it is easier than the original but just as fun plus I think with it being on xbox there's a chance people will have an xbox 360 to play it on
