    I, for one, will be giving multiple copies of Crash Bash and multi-taps to family and friends this holiday, and that alone should speak miles on just how addictive and fun this game can be in a multiplayer environment.
  2. More four-player fun than even Ron Jeremy could offer.

    Not to say that Crash Bash can't be played alone, but when there's a room full of people, Crash Bash suddenly becomes ten times more fun.
  4. It's a party title without the boring drama of rolling dice. It's a game that gets right to the point...the fun.

    It is shallow, but it is a party game meant for four players to have fun beating each other senseless (in the game of course).
  6. Let's hope Traveller's Tales takes note with Crash 4 and helps all of us forget about Crash Bash.
  7. The six mini-games are fun to play... for about 30 minutes each.

    Even though this game is not made by Naughty Dog, I never would've guessed it.

The characters look exactly like themselves from the main Crash games. The music is unbelievably catchy, just like the original Crash trilogy. The environments and sounds are all still perfect. As for the new, original elements, I have to say, I'm really impressed. First of all, this is one of the VERY FEW games that must have Co-op, and it does (I'm looking at you, Crash "Team" Racing. The AI is kind of annoying though, in some levels, the bots are impossible to beat, while in others, they're a push-over. Like in the Polar Push games and Ballistix games. Most of the mini-games are great fun, while some are a pain in the main game. The pogo games, for example. The only one that's even remotely fun and lively is Pogo-a-gogo. But let's ignore the main game, and focus on the reason this game is a 10 in my eyes. First of all, I don't like how there have to be 4 players, but I guess that's the same problem with Mario Party. On the other hand, if you can get 3 friends playing together, it'll be the most fun you've ever had playing a game together. The competitiveness is unbelievable, because at every moment, a person could wipe out. This will be one of the best games I have ever had. Please play it, or at least get an emulator, a few gamepads, and get on it! Expand

If one or more, the game's fun factor soars through the roof, breaks through the exosphere and goes MIA somewhere in an unknown galaxy. If you're playing alone... yeah, not worth it at all. With that being said, I played this game A LOT with my brother and my friends, and we all had an incredible blast. Hands down the best party game ever created, Wii Sportes be damned. Expand

    Nowhere near as good as main games of Crash Bandicoot but surprisingly fun.

    I am a big fan of Crash, but he should not be in mini games.
