  1. 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.
  5. 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 CrashEven 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

    I play this game with my mother, my wife, and my daughter and we are rolling on the floor laughing! How many games have that sort of I play this game with my mother, my wife, and my daughter and we are rolling on the floor laughing! How many games have that sort of multigeneration appeal? I place it above Crash Team racing and Mario party for entertainment for all ages. I only rate it a 9 just to leave room for future games. Worst game: ball-bearing hockey games. Best games: box-throwing, Tanks, circle races. Best comedy: hammering each other instead of the mushrooms, and the characters' reactions when mayhem occurs on many of the games. Expand

    I remember when I had fun with this game, playing it a lot with my brother. It was one of the few original-disc games I had. I never finishedI remember when I had fun with this game, playing it a lot with my brother. It was one of the few original-disc games I had. I never finished this game, at least not in the past. Recently, however, I managed to complete it, at least the story mode, with a friend.

    Not much to say about the plot, it's pretty simple, but fun. The usual contrast between Aku Aku and Uka Uka, a final battle between good and evil, in which will compete in a tournament each with their own followers. Being primarily a party game, there isn't a breathtaking plot but the context works. I was very impressed that, if played in co-op, at the end the game will force the players to fight against each other; I did not expect this, neither I nor my friend.

    To be a party game, the gameplay of Crash Bash is fun, but also intelligent and well structured. A party game as it should be. The challenges, which change from room to room, remain almost the same, and only the rules change or some detail, but the game is never boring. The challenge level of Crash Bash is impressive: not a game to be taken lightly, many challenges will test the nerves and reflexes. This is also perhaps, in my opinion, the biggest flaw of the game; the high level of difficulty, which flows into indecency because some challenges, even if difficult, also put players in a position of too high disadvantage. And this leads to frustration several times. But, I must say that even when I was losing and losing, this game has never stopped being fun and I laughed a lot even in the most drastic moments. And this is important: that the game in the end is fun.

    Crash Bash is a great game, and without pity some times but it worked how it should. Maybe more party games should be as it is. Of course it is not a great game as the previous Crash games, but it is a lot better than the Crash games came after it.

    This game doesn't have the exact same atmosphere as the previous Crash games made by Naughty Dog, but it still has every Crash-related thingThis game doesn't have the exact same atmosphere as the previous Crash games made by Naughty Dog, but it still has every Crash-related thing mashed together in the best possible ways which make some extremely clever mini-games. And each mini-game has unique challenges among them so you can earn different collectables (also seen in previous Crash games).

    The only negative things I think worth mentioning is first off, the AI, which can make some mini-games excruciatingly hard - and even more so when attempting some challenges unique to those mini-games. The second issue is that some mini-games are simply unfun and unintuitive, but some of them need to be completed anyway to continue the game. It's an awesome play for true Crash fans and its multiplayer is first-rate, but other than that, it doesn't pop out like it's predecessors.

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