  1. Any Crash Bandicoot fan would be a fool not to go out and buy this game. I started playing at 2am one night and did not stop until three in the afternoon!
  2. If platform-hopping and coin-collection isn't your bag, you'll want to avoid Crash before he gets on your last nerve.
  3. The non-stop action can get a bit repetitive and ultimately tiresome, and the sound effects may begin to wear on the nerves after a few hours of playing.
  4. 62
    It’s got average graphics and average level design. This game is as average as games can get.
  5. 60
    The platform game grows up.
  6. Those looking for revolutionary gameplay or a game that pushes the envelope of the latest generation of gaming systems will most certainly be disappointed.
  7. Not only is the gameplay un-revised on this much more powerful platform, but much of the former joy in the series has been drained away. The characters, levels and gameplay are essentially flat.

    the wrath of cortex it´s a good game i like the sound track the ideas for the levels the story and the graphics but if you are one of thosethe wrath of cortex it´s a good game i like the sound track the ideas for the levels the story and the graphics but if you are one of those crash bandicoot ps1 fans you will probably hate this game due to the character design, the long loading screen and the fact that it does look like a warped clone but if you can surpass those things crash will entertain you for a few hours Expand

    This game was the only time I did play a Crash Bandicoot game, unfortunately, I tried the best as I can to love it, but it's no use.

Averagely good game. Expand

    Nah, this is just like the PSOne Crash games, which weren't too special either.
