My 30th review after the god awful, flat-out worst game of all time, Superman 64.
Meet your best friend Super Mario 64. It's Crash Bandicoot! The game is all about when Crash is being zapped and created by a mad scientist named Dr. Neo Cortex, then his guards push him off and he fallen down into an island and they have captured his girlfriend Tawna. It's up to our funny bandicoot to make himself to Cortex's blimp, stop him and save his girlfriend. Well set aside Super Mario 64, this game is gonna get an A-! Here are the results:
Voice-acting 6/10: There's not much to say but it was okay, even though Crash's voice can be the only issue from him.
Gameplay 9/10: Just as much fun as Super Mario 64, although in order to get a gem, you would have to break all the crates without losing a life. Also the save system is very stale because in order to save the game, you have to complete a bonus stage or get a gem. The heads-up display doesn't show how many crates you've broken or how many you need to get a gem.
Graphics 10/10: Really cool and sharp just like Super Mario 64's graphics.
Controls 2/10: Pretty clunky because you are using the d-pad.
Sound/Music 10/10: Awesome and perfect! That's how the sound in every game should be.
Lasting Appeal 9/10: If you loved Super Mario 64, you'll love this as much as that.
Overall, Crash Bandicoot is a really great game for the PS1, but 6.8?! Are you serious, GameSpot?!?! This game deserves a better score than that.
-It's just as great as Super Mario 64
-One of the greatest video game soundtracks
-Cool and sharp graphics
-Getting a gem requires breaking all the crates without losing a life
-Controls are pretty stiff and clunky
-Crash can only jump and spin attack and his jumping is too heavy
-You have to complete bonus stages or obtain a gem to save the game
-Lack of crate counter on heads-up display
I will review Spyro The Dragon soon, GameSpot reviewers. Please stay tuned to sonic_rareware8's reviews and have fun with this game.
Crash Bandicoot gets a 9 out of 10!
