  • Excerpt: Crash Bandicoot 2: cortex strikes back is the second part of what has been years of fun. With its free-roaming 3-d enviroments, graphics and 'badies' that take alot of imagination Crash bandicoot is a well know favourite.
  • Pros: Hours of enjoyment entwined with funky graphics
  • Cons: Getting stuck on boss levels

  • Excerpt: Crash Bandicoot was the closest thing PSone had to a mascot - everyone liked him, he had a variety of games (which were good, which helps) and he even had a foxy (bandicooty?) sister.
  • Pros: Great fun  -  it's Crash !  Great level variety
  • Cons: Old  -  so dodgy graphics .  Simple bosses .  Pretty short .

  • Excerpt: This was my first outing with a bandicoot and was mightily impressed with the strength and brains of the wee man ( or could it be that was because I was controlling him??? ). This game I feel was a really addictive game as I spent the full day Sunday playing it.
  • Pros: Really addictive .  Great graphics and gameplay .
  • Cons: Some levels too easy .  Not enough challenging levels .

  • Excerpt: A bandicoot is an australian marsupial, like Crash. The only difference is that normal bandicoots don't run round levels to collect crystals, befriending bear cubs, fighting off evil man-eating plants and running away from giant snowballs.
  • Pros: Good gameplay
  • Cons: Chunky graphics

  • Excerpt: I found this to be the best of the 3 Crash games. It was interesting and fun to play, with the added bonus that it saved how many lives you had when you left the game. It had loads of bonus levels and secrets hidden, the controls were easy to use and although it wasn't as big a challenge as Crash 3,...
  • Pros: colourful, fun, not repetitive .
  • Cons: quite linear

  • Excerpt: A Bandicoot by the name of Crash continues his adventures, venturing through many different levels providing variety of scenery and things that can kill you. There is a shortage of moves, as Crash can slide, slam and spin, but the game is very effective with imaginative graphics!
  • Pros: Hours of entertainment !
  • Cons: Annoying when you can't get through a level !

Crash bashes into 1st place

craigy_ba..., Ciao
20 November 2000
  • Excerpt: Crash Bandicoot 2 is my 2nd favourite platform game of all time, second only to Spyro 3. The game is in-depth and addictive. I never wanted to turn the console off until I had the game fully completed, 100%. Most people own at least 1 Crash game, some, even more than that.
  • Pros: Good gameplay, durability, for all ages
  • Cons: Not enough depth to beat Spyro
