    The severe fun of Incredible Crisis is all about maintaining your sanity, as you help Taneo's family get home in time for Grandma's Birthday.
    It's a happy day and the worst day of their life, as they endure hundreds of hilarious and cardiac-arrest inducing dilemmas.
    You'll laugh, cry, freak-out and perhaps soil your shorts, while your mental and physical reflexes are put the test.
    The controls are simple, but thumb and forefinger injury is still a risk.
    Be warned, this game is severely fun and may cause obsessive compulsive behavior, if not nervous disorders and/or involuntary twitches.

  1. Brief, nonsensical, infuriating and exhilarating, this is the perfect antidote to bland wrestling games and sub-par RPGs. Sexy fantastic!
  2. So clever in its conception and execution that we can't see anyone not finding its worth in least a few of the many delights it has to offer.
  3. Won't be remembered as a breakthrough title but it will be remembered as one of the most original and risk taking games ever produced on the PlayStation.
  4. By far one of the most insane, crazy, off the wall out to lunch games I've ever played. And I loved every minute of it.

    An absolutely ridiculous game that's only good because it's so unique and bizarre, Incredible Crisis is best enjoyed with a group of friends watching, pointing, laughing, and furrowing their brow in confusion and horror.
  6. The length keeps the game from achieving greatness, but with its great cast of characters, fun story, and toe-tapping soundtrack, Incredible Crisis still provides an incredibly satisfying, albeit incredibly short, video game experience.
  7. A rental only (though it sells for a very affordable 20 bucks), not so much to play as to watch for its pure craziness.

    This game is CRAZY-really, nothing make sense here. You follow the 4 member of a family around the most strange (and unlucky) day of their This game is CRAZY-really, nothing make sense here. You follow the 4 member of a family around the most strange (and unlucky) day of their lives.... and you'll enjoy it ;) Sure, since this is basically a "game" made only by mini-games, you'll have your fingers ache, at the end, but who care? You just cant stop playing it... and that's the problem. This kind of game simply can't go on too much, or it gets boring: I.crisis last a couple of hours, maybe 3, but then its over. And no, you wont play it again, 'cause after you follow the story the 1st time, laughing all the time, what is left are lots of minigames who aren't that much fun after the first time, when you know what to do and what is next. Get it, play it, enjoy it... but then the better thing you can do with it is borrow it to some friend, and then talk about it. In the end, a strange and funny little game, the kind you really remember for long time. Collapse

It's hilarious and a lot of fun, but doesn't really last long. Despite the length, the game is a lot of fun. You never see what's coming and you will be amazed how weird this game can get. This is a Japanese gem at its best.

    Many mini-games are recycled in the story mode, so you won't feel like playing them again. That's only for the better, as your first impression is the strongest point in this game. The music is scarce, but the few tracks provided are catchy and upbeat,

    If you need to play something like never before, this is the game for you.

    Basically a series of short mini-games, albeit rather crazy and unique ones, Incredible Crisis is fun for a while but soon out stays its welcome.
