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 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
