  1. I like the game, but unless you’re comfortable with the cost to take advantage of the multiplayer functionality – the entire point of the game – I can’t recommend it.

    Despite showing enormous potential, Crash Boom Bang! is hampered by dodgy controls and a testing user interface. It's disappointing because this could have been a great multiplayer game. [Christmas 2006, p.80]
  3. A distinct average and oddly passionless collection of touchscreen mini-games.
  4. Crash Boom Bang is a mess. There are too many unneeded features, not enough time was spent developing the important ones, and hundreds of small hiccups and issues make this game feel like it should have gone through more inspections at every level of design.

    A dull and poorly designed game. The mini-games are boring, you can't save in-game and you'll be waiting around a lot of the time. This is just a quickly rushed license title.
  6. It could have been an interesting title but the problems with control, weird gameplay style, terrible graphics and rigged, repetitive games just kill any joy that would be garnered from playing it.
  7. Games like this ought to be easy to pick up and play, but “Crash Boom Bang” is so confusing and unnecessarily complicated that it will make any player shut off the DS in frustration.

    Es una sólida propuesta party ya que es un género muerto, si bien entiendo las quejas de los fans de Crash a mi este me gustó mucho

    A pesar de que es el peor Crash Bandicoot de todos y por muy lejos, el multijugador es divertido y las escenas estilo comic están mas o menos bien.

    Just glad I kept the receipt, even brought a Nintendo DS just so I could play the latest crash game. This is by far the worst crash game Just glad I kept the receipt, even brought a Nintendo DS just so I could play the latest crash game. This is by far the worst crash game I've ever played, just lifeless. Thank you vivendo, Dimps and Radical entertainment, you've killed the Bandicoot we all know and love. BRING BACK NAUGHTY DOG!
