And they gave it a *drumroll*

[spoiler] 9.5 [/spoiler]

Crashmo is a more than fitting follow-up to last years breakout eshop hit, Pushmo. The puzzles are clever and addictive, and the new sliding mechanic, new gadgets and updated camera controls do a bang-up job of making this experience feel fresh and distinct. This game is a must download for any 3DS owner, especially fans of the puzzle genre.

If you havent played Pushmo, Id suggest starting there. You dont really need to, but its the best way to truly appreciate Crashmo's brilliant evolution of that original idea. Either way, if youve somehow managed to miss out on Mallos puzzle adventures this long, nows the time to make things right.IGN

I need to get this now.

Yeah I bought it a about a week ago, got as far as the door puzzles and have been enjoying it alot.

perhaps it's just me but I'm finding the puzzles in Crashmo harder than the ones in Pushmo. I've gotten stumped on some 2-star puzzles even. =/

Me too.:D I didn't think that they could top Pushmo, but man they really did.

DJ-Lafleur

I got stuck on some 2-star ones too. It much easier to screw up in this one, but the puzzles so far are still very well made.

it will get Mcshaed.

Tom: "well I'm a fvcking dumbsh!t and couldn't figure out some of the puzzles. Also there weren't any horses and the mtion control was non existant and it wasn't on rails like the type of games I like. Plus even though this isn't a zelda game, there are a lot of zelda related thing which I wanted them to include but they didn't. Because of these cons I have to give chrashmo a 2.5"

Skyward Sword is closer to a 7.5 than it is a 10. Get over it :P.

Pushmo was awesome and Crashmo looks awesome too.

I thought you were talking about SKyward Sword at first, in which case (or other cases) the scores on IGN and GS differed. MGS4 did not differ in score. MGS4 is amazing :).

A 9 + at IGN says nothing about the game's quality.

Except it's not perfect. Or prime. In fact, it isn't the best MGS game. It also had pisspoor story.

Noone said it was perfect. Nothing is perfect.

It is the best MGS game in my opinion, this coming from a guy who never gave a crap about the series until 3 years ago, when I played 1-4 back to back. MGS4 > MGS1 > MGS3 > MGS2

Anyway! Pushmo was great and I am sure GS will give Crashmo at least an 8, but probably higher.

I actually did the same thing. And my point still stands. MGS1 is borderline unplayable now, unless you play Twin Snake.

Nostalgia is a huge factor when it comes to ranking the mgs games. Personally, I though it was great. I'd rank the main series MGS3>MGS2=MGSTS>MGS4>MGS I've heard good things about pushmo.

I played the original on PS1 (on my PS2) and loved it (9.5). How is it unplayable? :?

It's not that it's really unplayable, it's just that TS has better controls/camera.

I don't remember having any issue with those things. The only "issue" is that it is sorta ugly, but given its overhead playstyle, it is no big deal.

Pushmo is awesome. As soon as I got my 3ds I bought it right away, made the whole console worthwhile instantly.

Pushmo is awesome and I'm sure I will give Crashmo a chance here soon. Once again the E-shop proves itself at being one of the best reasons to own a 3DS. Very underrated is the E-shop.

pushmo is like the one 3ds game everyone likes that I have no interest in playing.

can't trust the 3ds fanbase after the horror that was 3d land. only game i've traded in this year.
