    Crash Bandicoot: Mind Over Mutant is exactly like its predecessor: a mildly enjoyable platforming romp that's sure to satisfy younger players, but won't provide much that seasoned players haven't already experienced before.
  2. If you enjoyed Crash of the Titans, Crash: Mind Over Mutant is a slightly better game with improvements in critical areas such as controls, gameplay and storyline. Sadly, the camera almost ruins the whole package.
  3. But it’s not quite slick enough underneath all those pretty visuals to earn essential status.
  4. If Crash had loosened up the open-world gameplay a bit and fixed the horrible camera system, this could have been another excellent PS2 platformer.

    Crash Mind Over Mutant is great. The gameplay is superb, being able to control huge monsters is really fun, and leveling up Crash and theCrash Mind Over Mutant is great. The gameplay is superb, being able to control huge monsters is really fun, and leveling up Crash and the Titans is not half bad. The music is great and catchy, it's suitable for all ages and there's a good amount of collectibles and secrets to obtain. It does have flaws, though. It's a bit short and the cartoon cutscenes are kind of childish, but if you can get past that, you'll love it. And getting 100% is not that fast, so it's not that short of a game. It's a great game and recommendable to any fun-loving gamer. Full Review »

Dialog between the characters can be funny at times although I wished they could have animated the cutscenes in CGI instead of animating them in a distinctive artstyle (the cutscenes in the game represent the art styles from TV series like South Park and DragonBall Z). Gameplay is more platforming than action between smacking Titans and stuff. The environments are colourful and now you can pretty much freeroam around Wumpa Island instead of picking levels from a warp room like the earlier Crash games. What is annoying though is that the camera can't be adjusted which can be a pain while backtracking through a part of the island. The ending could be a bit better too. However, Crash: Mind over Mutant is a nice game that fans of platformers should enjoy. Full Review »
