This is a timeless classic that i will never tire of. The idea at the time was original and very successful. It was very popular, hence the reason that there have been 2 sequels. The game is about a bandicoot called 'crash' and you have to guide him round loads of levels, kill enemies and collect things in order to progress. The graphics are excellent with very few glitches. In my opinion this makes really good use of the Playstation's capabilities. It is a really fun game to play. The levels are fun with many different things to do. I was glad that this game was difficult as it kept my attention for a long period of time. Well worth getting- then get the other two!
Crash Bandicoot, the poster marsupial for PlayStation, is back. In this third instalment ... more
of the popular action-game series, Dr N. Trophy has built a time machine to collect the gems and crystals dropped by Dr Neo Cortex. Joining this dastardly group is Dr Cortex's boss Uka Uka, a freaky floating mask that is out to crush Crash. It is up to Crash and his sister, Coco, to conquer this threatening threesome and grab the goodies. Offering 25 levels of challenging solo action the game takes full advantage of the dual shock controller, and its vibration feature, which is especially fun when a dinosaur is chasing Crash. The music is appropriate to the action and the controls are easy to use. But it's the graphics that make this a stand-alone title. A team of artists worked on this game to design seamless movement that is more like an interactive cartoon than a game. Novice gamers will enjoy this title for its ease of movement and challenging gameplay. Hard-core gamers will appreciate its hidden secrets and shortcuts. And how can you go wrong with Arabian cities, underwater worlds, medieval times, menacing frogs, pirate-head cannonballs and creepy scorpions? Crash Bandicoot 3 is a goofy game with enough fun features to satisfy both die-hard and beginning gamers. --Kasty Thomas
