Crash Mind Over Mutant


Crash makes his biggest leap since the PSOne. The Crash Bandicoot series has had a rough transition ever since leaving developer Naughty Dog's tight clutches. It seems that everyone's favorite...

Combat is simple and fun ; Writing is hilarious ; Can be played by anyone

No challenge at all ; Backtracking becomes tedious

Crash: Mind Over Mutant


What we have presented in terms of story is a simple but comical one. The Bandicoots Crash and Coco and cyborg pal Crunch are enjoying a quiet life on Wumpa Island until Dr. Cortex's latest nefarious invention wreaks havoc upon all inhabitants of the...

Hilarious one-liners and audio really make the game ; Achievements galore for junkies ; Interesting new mechanics that allow Crash to control creatures are fun and easy to control ; The game is genuinely fun

Graphics are only subpar ; No camera control ; Some may get annoyed with the game's repetitive nature and backtracking system

Despite all its flaws, I had genuine fun with Crash Bandicoot: Mind Over Mutant. I dealt with the annoying camera, backtracked as much as I could stand, and still ended up smiling throughout it all. I passed up the usual Call of Duty 4 night marathon...

Crash Bandicoot: Mind over Mutant


There is a question on my mind, that may be a tad bit over-reaching by nature, but Crash: Mind Over Mutant is such a shining example of a horrible trend that I cannot avoid asking it. When a game is relatively decent, but when a technical problem...

Level design + Mutants are all fairly unique and fun to play around with + Various animation styles are fun parodies

Co-op is broken

An otherwise decent game that is somewhat impressive is marred by bad co-op, it shouldn't have been included. Otherwise this is a improvement over the last game.

Crash Bandicoot: Mind over Mutant


Crash Bandicoot has endured as one of the major players in the platforming genre; a genre known for dozens of would-be mascots who usually only see a game or two before fading into obscurity. While never reaching the legendary status of Mario, Crash...

Mind Over Mutant has the building blocks of a great platformer, but with a dearth of content and an inexcusable amount of back-tracking, it's impossible to recommend this game for anything more than a rental.

Crash Bandicoot: Mind Over Mutant


Genetically engineered for average entertainment

Child-pleasing fun ; Lavish effects, solid frame rate ; Lots to do

Annoying music ; Controls aren't perfect ; Restrictive camera

It’s unquestionably well designed, with loads of hidden bonuses for those who master the controls and the abilities of the Titans. But then there’s the fixed camera which, while faithful to the original, is far too restrictive when the environments are...

Crash: Mind Over Mutant


The graphics aren't overly impressive for a late-generation PS2 title, but at least we get some interesting particle effects and a whole lot of appealing color. There's a good amount of variety in the nicely designed backdrops, the character...

The controls are swift and responsive, as you'll never feel betrayed by a wonky control scheme. You are appropriately rewarded for quick reflexes but at the same time, you do have to sit back and take stock of your surroundings before dashing headlong...

Crash: Mind over Mutant Review


Crash: Mind over Mutant has its ups and downs for a rollercoaster ride of an adventure

If you enjoyed Crash of the Titans, Crash: Mind Over Mutant is a slightly better game with improvements in critical areas such as controls, gameplay and storyline. Sadly, the camera almost ruins the whole package.

Crazy Taxi


Crazy Taxi was an arcade hit in 1999 and the 2000 Dreamcast port became one of the most universally popular titles on the system. The outrageous driving action now comes to the PlayStation 2 with this 2001 release, complete with all the quirky drivers, ca

Crash: Tag Team Racing


This third racing game to star the perma-grinned bandicoot puts a new spin on the genre standards of chaotic, combat karting. As in the GameCube's popular Mario Kart: Double Dash!, two players can team up in a single vehicle, so one can steer while the ot

Crash Bandicoot Mind Over Mutant
