Summary: I used to play 'The Wrath of Cortex' almost every day when I was a little kid, it was my favorite game. I don't know if anyone still has an original X-Box anymore, but if you're a kid who does and is looking for a fun and memorable game with action and adventure, I recommend this for you.
Summary: This was my first crash game I had ever played when it first came out and it made a big impact on me. The game may be similar to its predecessors but it serves as a good old fashioned Crash game that brings back those nostalgic Playstation 1 memories. This game has some fair challenges to accomplish along with a good handful of difficult bosses as well. The sound and music are superb but the graphics on the other-hand are only adequate.
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. Smart gamers will soon wisen ...
Pros: Good little platform game, addictive and challenging
Cons: Can become tiresome and difficult to complete
Excerpt: "...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. The game stars the characters of Crash Bandicoot, Coco (Crash Bandicoot's Extremely Smart ...
Pros: good game, nice RPG
Cons: tricky in some places . . . ha, this should be a good thing - _ - '
Summary: Okay, Crash Bandicoot doesn't utilise the power of the xbox to its maximum potential, the graphics are cartoony, yet cool, and the sound is typical of a platform game (the kind that plays over in your head until it really irritates you!) However, the game is easy to pick up and play, and will take you a while to finish.
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. As Crash fights for his life in this imaginatively animated world the Gameplay is continuous and occasionally witty ...
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 .
Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath Of Cortex (Xbox): All round good family game!

Summary: Having played an old old version of Crash on PSX, I wasn't all that impressed with it even though it was a really popular game. Being a one player game (we prefer co-op) it wasn't my first choice, but i was talked into it by my partner 'for the kids to play'. So, being responsible parents we had to test it out first (our excuse anyway). The 3D effects are pretty good but nothing spectacular. Being such a playable game it doesn't do it an injustice either.
Pros: Stacked with different levels, Adult and kids game, Good format and graphics
Cons: Can get complex for young kids, One player, no challenge for more
Excerpt: "...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. The game has been more targetted at young children than adults and besides the jumping sequences it is easy to get into. As to whether this game could beat Blinx or Taz, I think that this is on par with Taz Wanted but falls short of beating Blinx The Time Sweeper. If you have young children, then ...
Pros: Great game for young children and adults alike .
Cons: The camera angle can be a little difficult to judge jumps correctly .
Summary: Crash Bandicoot used to be one of Sony's most praised mascots... Now he's on the GBA and the Xbox. After only recently purchasing my Xbox I felt that my only game Halo, was getting annoying because A, I was stuck in this strange level and B, Halo is not something you can just pick up and play; you have to dedicate hours completing that particular level which has been keeping you awake day and night for weeks... so I bought Crash Bandicoot.
Pros: Enjoyable, Good Platformer
Cons: Hardly improved from the original, The graphics could be improved...
