This was actually one of the first Playstaion titles to be released and it served to be one of the most memorable title launch games ever.This game is about a guy called Crash Bandicoot who actually used to be a normal animal until the evil, nefarious Dr. Cortex experimented on him and gave him human qualites such as speech and the ability to stand up on his own two feet! So begins the adventure where you as the player have to control Crash through
the many levels of the game collecting wumpa fruit and extras such as tokens which allow you to enter the bonus rounds to collect even more wumpa fruit that can give you an extra life every time you collect 100. My favourite thing about the game is when you collect three special masks and transfrom into an invunerable dude who with the powers of a God named Aku Aku can temporarily be invincible which is a cool. On the whole this game is fun and young children will certainly find this appealing due to the colourful and bright visuals and as it stands it is still a great platform game which is accesible to anyone who is a fan of these type of games.

Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex (Xbox)

Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex (Xbox)

Crash Bandicoot, the famous marsupial video-game icon, comes spinning into yet another ... more

solid action platform game in Crash Bandicoot: the
Wrath of Cortex. This is the first true platform
game for the Xbox, and is suitable for
cartoon-action loving fans of all ages. Evil is at
an all-time decline, so Crash's arch-nemesis Dr
Neo Cortex is designing the ultimate weapon:
Crunch, the
extra-evil-bio-engineered-super-bandicoot.
However, in order to complete Crunch, the good
doctor needs more power... the kind of power that
only evil, renegade voodoo masks can provide.
Enter the Elementals. Set free by the evil voodoo
mask Uka-Uka, the Elementals control various
aspects of the environment. They are so powerful
and so dangerous that they almost destroyed the
earth once, and were sealed in special crystals to
protect the earth from certain doom. Uka-Uka
believes that by harnessing the power of these
evil masks, Dr Cortex will have all the power he
needs to complete Crunch and finally finish off
Crash. So once again Crash returns to his
crystal-collecting, box-bashing, bad guy-spinning
ways. Can he stop the masks? Will he defeat
Crunch? Only time, and your weary game-playing
hands, will tell.The Wrath of Cortex is the
hardest game in the series' history. There are 30
levels, seven different vehicles for Crash to use,
bonus levels and a time trial mode. Also, as you
progress throughout the game, you fight five
bosses and for each boss you defeat, you unlock a
new move (double jump, bazooka, tiptoe, Crash dash
and death tornado). And in what is probably the
coolest feature, you get to play as Crash's sister
Coco on some levels. Okay, so the game is good,
but is it perfect? Well, the graphics are solid,
but not much of an improvement over the PS2
version--it definitely doesn't take full advantage
of the Xbox's hardware. Also, the long load times
for the levels can be annoying. Lastly, Crash
Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex was not developed
by Naughty Dog, the company that started the
series. The game, while faithfully following the
traditional feel of the series, misses some of the
polished quirkiness that Naughty Dog was known
for.The Wrath of Cortex is a great game for all
ages, and will give you 40-plus hours of gameplay.
