Excerpt: Gaming icons. All the consoles have them, or do they’ Lets play a little word association. I’ll mention a brand, then you say which game character comes to mind. Ok’. Nintendo. That’s it, the answer is Mario. Sega. We have a winner! Sonic is the correct answer – you’re getting good at this. Ok, now here’s the clincher. Sony.

Excerpt: It may sound wacky to younger gamers, but there was a time when Crash Bandicoot was one of the hottest series for the original Playstation. Old school platforming gameplay, funny commercials and even tie-ins with Pizza Hut made ol' Crash look like the next Mario. Developer Naughty Dog, who felt they had done all they could do with Crash, then sold the license to Universal, meaning one of the characters most symbolic with Sony was now free to appear on all platforms.
Conclusion: Basically I think the health and lives system in the series needs an overhaul, as you can only get hit a couple of times before losing a life. Perhaps a system like Sonic the Hedgehog would work better where you lose your pickups, (fruit in this case) if an enemy hits you, would be a fairer way of doing it.
Pros: Nice twist to the gameplay., The Boss fights are really well done., Genuinely funny at times.
Cons: The Camera., The Save system., The Lives system., Just too hard and unfair.
