  1. Gamers experiencing the wacky mascot for the first time may enjoy it.
  2. Safe, sterile and redundant.
  3. The straightforward nature of the levels begs for more openness, which isn't available. It was fun while it lasted, but even that wasn't that long.
  4. 69
    But at the end of the day this is the same Crash game I played so many years ago without any real innovations or evolutions.
  5. The sheer variety of gameplay is noteworthy. [Oct 2002, p.196]
  6. Wrath on the GC is much more polished here than on the PS2. [Nov 2002, p.306]
  7. 60
    Graphically, this version is slightly below the recent Xbox release but in line with the competent PlayStation 2 iteration.
  8. The gameplay is generic to say the least – just run along a set path jumping gaps and avoiding enemies.
  9. 53
    With software as well as hardware fiercely competing for recognition, Crash falls far short of the mark and when compared to others in the genre looks pathetic.
  10. This truly is a shell of the other two console versions, so I beg you to pass. [Oct 2002, p.84]

    It is short, but it entertains. It has great graphics, some interesting level design, fun gameplay and a lot of uniqueness. It is great for Crash Bandicoot fans. Full Review »
