    A very strong contender for PlayStation game of the year. Its "rowdy rowdy" gameplay will keep your head spinning for days.

    As some would argue, the best 2.5D platformer ever released. [Nov 2001, p.40]
  3. Easily the best Crash game yet and possibly the greatest platforming title on the PSX yet. Although not as long as the previous games it provides the most bang for the buck!
  4. Easily the best Crash yet. Every aspect of the game is better: new moves, levels, bosses, graphics, sound, and gameplay. It's the most fun I've had with a 3D platform game in a long, long time.
  5. A barrage of good things. The graphics, sound, music, levels, and difficulty all come together perfectly. Naughty Dog has made Crash a much better game, something that is commendable when so many sequels come up short.
  6. It’s too short. Sure, there are twenty-five levels plus hidden areas and bosses, but they're limited to variations on about five different time periods, and they’re very short.
  7. So impressive to watch that you'll have to keep one hand firmly below your chin to keep it from falling to the floor.

    Simply the best 2.5D platformer on the Playstation with great graphics and sound effects, and great controls. All 3 Crash Bandicoot games areSimply the best 2.5D platformer on the Playstation with great graphics and sound effects, and great controls. All 3 Crash Bandicoot games are excellent, all other Bandicoot games that came out on PS2 are not even close to this!

    If I have to chose the ideal mascot to represent the Playstation, I would doubt between Lara Croft or Crash Bandicoot. That's how good they are!

    I rate this game a perfect 10 out of 10.

There are hard bosses, but they are fun to defeat, and it's a memorable game. This game has nice graphics, and many different levels.

    This is a game i will recommend everybody.
