    With only four modes, no unlockable incentives to encourage multiple deployments (besides trophies), and a cartoony art style, Crash doesn't sound exciting on paper. But when you zip around, wasp-like, through the levels -- perching on platforms while grabbing out-of-reach body armor and taking potshots at the opposition -- the Contra-meets-TF2 gameplay gels perfectly, keeping you from setting the controller down. And really, that's all an online shooter needs to do.
  2. Crash Commando is just the game PSN needed. A crazy, addicting, and fun little game that will tide us over until the next wave of games hit the store.
  3. It’s always nice to get something original on the PS Store, and even though Crash Commando might not be new in concept, the game design is flawlessly executed and the sheer addictive nature of the gameplay and slick online access makes this a must-own PSN title.

    Although a full-fledged single player campaign would have been nice, Crash Commando still provides hours of gameplay at the bargain price of $10.
  5. Crash Commando is a surprisingly fun shooter that should please multiplayer fans that want something light and easy to pick up.
  6. Classic side-scrolling shooting best enjoyed with friends.
  7. Crash Commando fuses established ideas to create a wholly addictive side-scrolling multiplayer shooter.
  8. Hats off to the dev team for bringing the genre back to life in a visually appealing way that is a lot of fun to play.
  9. It's quickly shaping up to be one of my favorite games available on PSN at the moment. It's a great multiplayer title, with a solid online community already established, and some simple, but entirely addictive gameplay behind it.
  10. With up to twelve fast-moving, bite-sized soldiers scurrying around 2D maps, using jetpacks, avoiding explosions and nailing the perfect shot on the run, Crash Commando is the latest must-download online addiction exclusively for PS3.
  11. Aside from inadequate bots and the resulting lackluster solo play, it's hard to go wrong with Crash Commando. It's a great merging of modern shooter concepts with classic movement styles and camera perspectives that I found to be both engaging and fun... even if the whole thing sort of just made me want to reinstall Soldat on my PC.

    Crash Commando is a really fun multiplayer-focused title that should appeal to pretty much anyone with a pulse. I wish there were more modes included with the shipping version, and I think the sniper rifle will prove to be a little unbalanced, but what's there is an extremely addictive experience that will serve you well during the coldest part of the year.
  13. Crash Commando offers a lean yet deep gaming experience all at once for up to twelve players online. The controls work brilliantly and the expansive arsenal of weapons is greatly suited for the experience. The different modes available in the game are great, but a few more wouldn't hurt. This is one of the absolutely best downloadable games from the Playstation Store and with some more content the grade would easily have jumped up a notch.

    Crash Commando is a superb, little release that binds classic, fast-paced 2D gameplay in a great looking package.

  17. A fine addition to the PSN. The best value for money shooter around.

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 »
