I had been always OK with Crash. It's an okay game. It is fun, polished and has its charm but boy is nostalgia factor strong in this one. Compared to Mario, Conker or Banjo iterations from that era it's nothing to write home about. Its convention and gameplay was very limited and despite attempts at spicing things up with lots of side sequences, it just isn't an extraordinary game. As a pure platformer, it's mediocre at best. What's so fun about such an on-rails limited world? I think even Spyro might have been a better game because of its world and mechanics.
What do you guys think?
