  1. Crash Commando is a retro-infused 2D shooter with a furious pace, responsive controls and an impressive arsenal. The single-player experience doesn't encompass much more than a boot camp though, but it's during the multiplayer bouts that this game really shines - especially with the gory visuals.
  2. A lack of a local multiplayer mode is a shocking omission, the audio is instantly forgettable (it's a predictable military score), and the single-player mode is boring as hell. But the online component, when you get a game with real people, provides great fun and the Team Fortress 2-style weapons and art style should appeal to most. Better than a kick in the groin.
  3. After all Crash Commando is a well directed game with an excellent potential. Meanwhile the short campaign leaves most of the success of this game to the on-line mode which may or may not be well frequented. It’s a fun experience and above all it’s an easy game to pick up and play thanks to the simplicity and instinctively qualities of the controls.
  4. An unpretentious blast of good-humoured bedlam – well-pitched towards the five-minute attention spans served by fellow PSN title Calling All Cars. [Jan 2009, p.94]
  5. We're left plumbing the depths of clone hell. [Issue#174, p.82]

With an amazing community, and solid action, it's literally kept me coming back to it every single day since purchase in 2009. Although it has a steep learning curve, once you've mastered it, the sense of accomplishment is ecstatic and one to keep you coming back for more. Full Review »

Fortunately though this game is old there still seems to be a healthy online community, although some names you will get killed by over and over again, offline there isn't too much to get your teeth into though. I laugh a lot when playing this. Full Review »
