  • Summary: [Playstation Network] Crash Commando is a fast-paced, side-scrolling humorous multiplayer action game with over-the-top, slap-stick action that features exaggerated gore and effects. Combining the thrill of frenzied multiplayer combat with the straightforward nature of a classic side-scrolling platform title, Crash Commando is a combination of modern, sophisticated technology and traditional arcade gameplay. The player controls a commando soldier and navigates through the maps on foot and with a high-powered jet pack. Each map consists of two gameplay layers the player can seamlessly move between via portals in the environment. Enemies will attack from the sides, as well as from above and below. With a host of both multiplayer and single player modes included, players can enjoy Crash Commando either on or offline. [Sony] Collapse

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Classic side-scrolling shooting best enjoyed with friends.
  7. We're left plumbing the depths of clone hell. [Issue#174, p.82]

    1 of my favourite PSN games I've got and definately the most funny I don't have a single fault with it especially watching someone blowing into little bits of meat perfect. Expand

    Ridiculously additive and fast-paced. Take the best of Contra and Unreal and you have a pretty solid idea of what Crash Commando is. Crash Commando is a great game to either pickup for a quick match between real-life events or for long periods of frag-fests. Plenty of online matches available at any hour of the day, making it an awesome game to pickup and play. Expand

    One of the most rewarding, and addictive titles I have bought on the PSN to date. 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. Expand

    Another game I am extraordinarily bad at, whilst still managing to have an absolutely brilliant time online with. Its fast and furious and very easy to pick up. 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. Expand
