Take screenshots from Warped, put a not-so-classic story to them and you get this.
So in all honestly, I do not see why so many people think this game is so great. Is it their first Crash game played? It is a recycled hunk of scrap. It is just another Crash game... a terrible one at that. It is just... bad period.
Suggestion: If you want to play a real Crash game, play the games for the good ol PS1. At least Naughty Dog did not recycle a whole bunch of things from their other games the way Vicarious Visions did with this one.
