    Those who played CRUSH back when it was released for the PSP in 2007, know how unique and challenging it is. Fast forward to 2012 and we get a 3DS upgrade. But whilst CRUSH was (and still is) a good platformer that's quite intriguing, the 3DS version doesn't complement its status as a remake too well. There is still a heavy lack of content to be found outside the single player game. You may think that the 97 collectible robes may warrant a good deal of your time, but it's just window dressing. In fact that sums up the whole game a bit too well. Whether its the 3D effect, which is cohesive but nothing mind blowing, or the asides including trophies, memories and the aforementioned robes- CRUSH 3D still feels like a lazy remake. The graphical sheen isn't as sharp with cutscenes that have garish overlays that don't present the original's sparkling colour. But to newcomers, this platformer is a treat with mind bending puzzles and potent 2D/3D platforming which is short but ever so sweet. Full Review »

    I am surprised at the Metacritic average. As someone who adored Pushmo (best game on the 3DS?) I found Crush3D a natural extension. Its mechanic is brilliant and the gameplay is both tight and challenging. If it was an indie game it would be getting RAVE reviews.

    Visually it doesn't stand out (which is likely THE reason for the lower Metacritic score). Notably the 3D is put to good use with the spatial puzzles, but nothing else is overly impressive visually. However, where it really counts, gameplay, Crush 3D shines! If you enjoy platforming with some good challenging puzzles thrown in I *HIGHLY* recommend the game. It provides the kind of depth of gameplay that simply cannot be done anywhere other than a dedicated handheld gaming system.

    Wonderful concept for a game that is both "different" and enjoyable!

    A game I missed on the PSP ported over, but feels like it was meant for the 3DS. The gameplay is fantastic, mostly puzzle solving, with a little platforming thrown in. The story is quirky and entertaining, the visuals decent. The 3D adds only a nice touch, nothing more. I'd recommend this game to anyone wanting a fun puzzle adventure. Full Review »
