  • Summary: In Crash Bandicoot: Mind over Mutant, a rejuvenated Neo Cortex is taking over the world one brain at a time! Cortex and N. Brio devise a new kind of evil - a text-messaging, do-anything device which controls both mutant and bandicoot minds. Armed with his quick-wits and lightening agility,In Crash Bandicoot: Mind over Mutant, a rejuvenated Neo Cortex is taking over the world one brain at a time! Cortex and N. Brio devise a new kind of evil - a text-messaging, do-anything device which controls both mutant and bandicoot minds. Armed with his quick-wits and lightening agility, Crash must free his friends, the titans and save the day. Not only does Crash gain the ability to control his enemies when he jacks them – now he can store his favorite monsters in his pocket, upgrade them and utilize their powers when they are most advantageous. Wumpa Island becomes a "free-romping" environment, allowing players to travel and explore through intersecting worlds, with different gameplay options available depending on what creature you've brought along for the ride. Your co-op partner is Crash's sister, Coco, playable for the first time in the cooperative mode. Not only does Coco make the game that much more inviting for girls to pick up and play, she also brings with her a new tactile "treasure hunt" ability. [Sierra Entertainment] Expand

  1. The kids will giggle a lot, and you will find yourself smiling at the humor. The game has plenty to do so that is a nice increase of its value.
  2. Crash: Mind Over Mutant is a surprisingly well put-together platforming title.
  3. These little pleasures make it relatively painless to play this game for extended periods of time, and even make it worth putting up with the repetitive and sometimes annoying music. It takes about eight hours to win on the medium ("Tricky") difficulty setting, not counting the side missions and the plenty of quirks you can unearth.

    A marked improvement on Crash's last game and good-looking too. If it was just a bit tighter in level design and control, it would be truly great. [Christmas 2008, p.62]
  5. But it’s not quite slick enough underneath all those pretty visuals to earn essential status.
  6. Crash: Mind Over Mutant isn’t the most original platformer we’ve played -- it’s not even the most original Crash title we’ve played -- but it does work much better than some previous titles in the series.

    From design to execution, this is a mess of a game, and a new low point for the once-loved marsupial. [Dec 2008, p.110]

    I do not really like this game. This game follows a different style than its predecessor Crash of the Titans. In this game, unlike Crash ofI do not really like this game. This game follows a different style than its predecessor Crash of the Titans. In this game, unlike Crash of the Titans you travel back and forth each time to different locations to complete some missions, meaning alot of backtracking. This game has cheesy cutscenes each time with a random artstyle. Overall I give this game 6/10. Expand
