  • Summary: TY and his mates face their biggest challenge yet – an otherworldly invasion by an ancient evil known as the Quinkan. With Bush Rescue disbanded, TY begins the challenging task of reforming his team and leading the fight against the dark oppressors. In this next chapter, players will embark on a series of engaging missions and challenges filled with new and upgradeable weapons – including his trade mark boomerang collection -- and vehicles. TY’s new adventures will take him into a shadowy world full of dangerous creatures, and will see him face bigger and badder enemies. [Krome] Expand

  1. Variety, accessibility, value, fun and buckets of content is what the TY the Tasmanian Tiger franchise is all about, and never has Krome done a better job at pulling all of these elements together than they have in TY 3.
  2. Variety, accessibility, value, fun and tons of content is what TY the Tasmanian Tiger is all about, and never has Krome done a better job at pulling all of these elements together than they have in TY 3: Night of the Quinkan.
  3. Night of the Quinkan has a really nice control scheme and plays really well. The platforming elements, racing, and combat are all really tuned well.
  4. It would have been good to see the game's accessibility for beginners complemented by combination moves for more skilled players.

    But the Ty series has never been original and this latest version feels like a copy of a copy. Gamers who played and didn't like the other two versions will find nothing new here and Ty fans may find themselves wondering why very little has changed.
  6. Ty's biggest drawback is a lack of action. [Nov 2005, p.94]
  7. 60
    Anyone looking for a lengthy, varied platformer with hidden secrets up the wazoo and tongue-in-cheek humor should find themselves enjoying Night of the Quinkan more than they would have expected.

    This game is just as good as the second. It still doesn't beat the first, and I can't completely recommend it with its mission based games. It's a good game though, but Jak Daxter succeeds over it. Expand

    Despite the game's graphics, nothing else really make fans dislike this third installment of the platformer series. This installment has a so much better plot than the predecessor, many twists and conflicts. There's also new vechiles to control to, one is the Crabmersible which helps you to travel from one place to another and it's faster than the Fourbie in the second game. Another is a war plane called Gunyip, really good in on-air fights. Our hero Ty has a new weapon, the Shadow Gauntlet, which kills the enemies called Quinkan who could not be killed by Ty's usual boomerangs. Still, Ty has his boomerangs to kill other enemies. Expand

    Night of the Quinkan hardly improves upon its predecessors, but still offers some mildly diverting platforming gaming. Pros: More action-adventure elements and varied gameplay, great graphics, visuals, and control, and much more difficult and lengthier than the series has been. Cons: Improves little upon its predecessors other than some sparky gameplay and visual spark, repetitive combat, and still lacks the charm it "thinks" it has. Expand

    I have now bought 2 copies of Ty 3 (since I enjoyed the first one). I had started with buying Ty 2, but had to return it due to a stratch that made it freeze. I buy my games used and the stored hasn't had any more Ty2's. i have now bought 2 of the Ty 3's. With both of them, they would never load. In reading comments from users in Amazon.com, it looks like that has happened to a couple of people. What a rip off! Expand
