    A very strong contender for PlayStation game of the year. Its "rowdy rowdy" gameplay will keep your head spinning for days.
  2. As some would argue, the best 2.5D platformer ever released. [Nov 2001, p.40]
  3. Easily the best Crash game yet and possibly the greatest platforming title on the PSX yet. Although not as long as the previous games it provides the most bang for the buck!
  4. Easily the best Crash yet. Every aspect of the game is better: new moves, levels, bosses, graphics, sound, and gameplay. It's the most fun I've had with a 3D platform game in a long, long time.
  5. A barrage of good things. The graphics, sound, music, levels, and difficulty all come together perfectly. Naughty Dog has made Crash a much better game, something that is commendable when so many sequels come up short.
  6. It’s too short. Sure, there are twenty-five levels plus hidden areas and bosses, but they're limited to variations on about five different time periods, and they’re very short.
  7. So impressive to watch that you'll have to keep one hand firmly below your chin to keep it from falling to the floor.

I have absolutely no issues with this game, and through its simplicity you can see its genius. Simple levels and easy controls, along with traditional crash wackiness made the game for me. Collapse

The controllers first of all are as smooth as in Crash 2 along with the slide and belly flop. My only real issue with Crash 2 was that the bosses were way to easy which was fixed in this game they are superb. For every boss you are able to defeat you will get power-ups which I will not spoil. This is my favorite game ever! Expand

I have not played this game for a long time, but the PS One has great games, and this third game in the Crash Bandicoot series is an excellent example of the great games that the PS One has. It is true that Naughty Dog has recently made great games like Uncharted and The Last Of Us, but this game will be a game to remember. In terms of gameplay is spectacular, it is challenging, it is a classic of the world of PlayStation. Expand

    A great adventure is letdown by its boring context.
