"If you enjoy Crash Bandicoot, Party Games, and a big challenge, this game is for you!"
The gameplay is awesome! There are 7 types of games, 28 games in all. You can have up to 4 players, which will really bring a challenge, and a great time. I wouldn't know, but anyway...in adventure mode, it's a little too much of a challenge. It's really fun, hard, easy at some points. There are still Gold and Platinum relics, but no more sapphire. There's a new character in a tank....who's really easy to beat. The Bearminator. A weakling. There are only 8 characters to choose from, but other characters show up in the game. N. Gin, Ripper Roo, Papu Papu, Bearminator, Komodo Bros, and Oxide all appear at one point in the game. Rilla Roo is also a new playable character.
I tend to like Crash Bandicoot music. Even though Eurocom made it, they did pretty well. The intro theme, the sound FX...although it's really annoying that Crash's polar bear sounds like a cow every time you press square on the Polar Push levels. Anyway, the sounds and music is great, especially on El Pogo Loco and Toxic Dash.
Um...can't say much for the story. Aku Aku and Uka Uka are using their men to fight for who's better. The teams are uneven, so Aku Aku takes Tiny and Dingodile on the good side. And you can play as evil guys, and I think it will still show Uka Uka yelling at N. Cortex and N. Brio at the end! But who cares....it's a party game, who needs a story.
At least the characters are still drawn well. And I'll give them credit, due to the fact that despite drawing them on foot, they had to draw them on pogo sticks, polar bears, hovercrafts, etc. But even a TNT crate exploding, you can see the exact explosion. Per-fect-o.
You can replay this game over and over again for months and not be bored. There are levels to unlock, challenges to beat, and more. It's even cooler if you play with your siblings and/or friends.
Rent or Buy: BUY!
Buy, buy, buy. This game is worth $25-$51. That is, if you like Partying Crash Bandicoot style, throwing crates and gems, blowing up tanks, and popping balloons(?)!
This is like no other Crash Bandicoot game. It's a party game! You can play for months. Bring your siblings! Your friends! Your gameshark! This long-lasting fun game will bring excitement to your dull day...LOL. So go out and buy this game while you still can!
