Smash that B**** BOX!!!!

Excerpt: For those who are unaware, Crash Bandicoot is a long running title that began on the playstation. Now in yet another incarnation, it has been ported onto the XBox - and quite well actually. CONTROLS: The draw of this game is the fact that you can pick it up and play in seconds. There are no fast button combinations to master and you can basically run through the early levels to pass them without any difficulty.
Pros: Good little platform game, addictive and challenging
Cons: Can become tiresome and difficult to complete
Excerpt: This review is about the game Crash Bandicoot: Wrath of Cortex, this is a not bad game. I got this game for my 14th birthday, along with other games and the XBOX console. This game is about Crash Bandicoot trying to defeat Cortex once and for all. In the other Crash Bandicoot games, he never defeats Cortex, he always knocks him out, or lets him escape, all same story.
Pros: good game, nice RPG
Cons: tricky in some places . . . ha, this should be a good thing - _ - '
Excerpt: The somewhat outmoded series of Crash Bandicoot cartoon style games reaches its climax with the latest edition The Wrath of Cortex. After Being Beaten too many times by the grinning Bandicoot Dr.Cortex decites to create a super-monster called Crash, a big bandicoot with a bigger grin, to destroy the bizarre creature once and for all.
Pros: Fluid Gameplay, Cars Planes and Rollerballs, Good Bonus Levels, Well Animated Graphics, Excellent Imaginitive Scenes .
Cons: Fiddly Controls, Repetitive Gameplay, Uninspired Music, Difficulty towards end, Static Enemies, Camera Angles Somewhat Clumsy .
Excerpt: This game play quite well and is responsive enough to enable some cool moves, the game is let down by the jumping sequences. When approaching a jump, you must time your button presses at exactly the right moment, there isn't much room for error. Graphical Crash looks like it has been ported straight over from the PSX2, this is one area that could have been improved.
Pros: Great game for young children and adults alike .
Cons: The camera angle can be a little difficult to judge jumps correctly .
Summary: This is a game which I was expecting much from. It was an opportunity to show off the power of the Xbox. Unfortunately, it has not come off. The game is good, and the graphics are sound. But this is the least that you would expect from any Xbox game. Unfortunately, it does not break any new ground. The game play is fairly predictable, and there is only limited scope to explore the various worlds.
