Product Description Review

In the tradition of great 3-D action jumping games, Crash Bandicoot is probably the PlayStation equivalent of the groundbreaking Nintendo 64 title Super Mario 64. Now repackaged as one of PlayStation's Platinum titles, this top-selling game takes you away on a tropical island adventure that is filled with deadly enemies and challenging levels. Our spiky-haired hero, Crash, needs no weapons to survive the harsh jungle. Instead, he jumps, jogs and spins his way through numerous lush and downright fun environments.

With 26 levels spanning across three tropical islands, Crash Bandicoot is sure to amuse old gamers as well as new. Crash must rescue his girlfriend, Tawna, from the evil clutches of Dr Cortex. Along the way, he can gather fruit for extra lives, smash boxes for random prizes and gather tokens which can be used for bonus rounds. Numerous big bosses block your path, which includes more than a few risky jumps that require split-second timing. Crash Bandicoot's impressive graphics and strong gameplay have already won over many hard-core and casual gamers. While this PlayStation classic has already spawned two successful sequels, the original version remains a worthy purchase. --Kasty Thomas

4.0 out of 5 stars crash bandicoot 13 Jan 2011
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Of all the electronic games I have seen, this series of games is with out doubt the best. This original game Crash Bandicoot has everything a game needs.
The basic idea is that you are on some tropical islands with the main character "Crash" who has to face the challenge of many levels as he confronts many enemies. He can walk, jog, jump and spin through twenty six levels in an attempt to rescue his girlfriend "Tawna" from the evil Dr Cortex. During his adventure he collects fruit for extra lives. And smashes boxes and gets tokens for bonus rounds.
The game has a few different levels such as the beach, jungle and castle. And there are some boss levels. Some games require dexterity and other games get the adrenalin rushing as Crash has to race at break neck speed.
The game is pleasing on the eye as the graphics are colourful and interesting and the main character is likeable. He has a humorous side as well with his facial expressions when he is frustrated and what he gets up to when he is waiting for instruction.
There is one thing that isn't so good about this game and that is the terrible "save" system. You have to get through a lot of the game before you can save your progress and if you make a mistake you lose everything. You have to get to a bonus level before you can "save".
I found this first edition very good but a little frustrating with the save problem. But it is a great favourite and is always worth playing again and again from time to time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review of Crash Bandicoot 7 Oct 2001
By A Customer
This is an excellent Platform game, with challenging enemies, lush 3D environments, you even get to ride a wild boar! The only things that puts this Platinum gme down 1 star is the awful save system. You have to wait until you get to a bonus area by collecting 3 of the same tokens before you can save your progress, even then if you slip, you can't go back to that area!
I'd also like this game to be Analog controller compatible.
In conclusion: Get this game if your a BIG fan of the Crash Bandicoot series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely amazing! 16 Feb 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Wow! This is a really old game but it just blows you away! It has everything a platform game should have: good graphics, great moves, brilliant levels, great enemies, lots of things to collect, brilliant music and fantastic characters. Fair enough, it isn't Analogue controller compatible but due to it's age, this is perfectly understandable.

It's a really challenging and interesting game and once you've started, it's hard to get bored of it. The levels are done brilliantly with lots of different environments. The music fits them perfectly and just listening to it on it's own is great.

A truly great game. This is just the start of the series so if you're new to it, start here. It sets the atmosphere for the whole series perfectly and makes the characters instantly memorable.

After you've finished this, move on to 2 then 3. Believe it or not, it just gets better!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Genious 12 Nov 2004
This is without doubt one of the best PSOne games ever *or maybe it is the best*. I had so much fun playing this great game, it is great fun spinning around and doing all kinds of fun things, if you have a young son or daughter buy this for them and they will love it! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

OMFG. Crash Bandicoot platinum at the bargain price of £147.95??? Mind blown. I never thought i'd get the chance to spend this insane amount of money on a Platinum version of a 1996 game. And sold by Sony Computer Entertainment themselves. I find this opportunity so unbelievable that i kept a printscreen of this. Now i'm just hopping for a 999£ PS1 to be able to play this again.
I'm just torn between Crash Bandicoot for £ 147.95, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back for £ 147.95, Crash Bandicoot 3 Warped for £59.95 or Crash Team Racing for £67.9. I think i'll have to buy them all.
Thanks, Sony Computer Entertainment.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent platformer 10 July 2000
By A Customer
As platform games go, this has it all - lush graphics, great motion, and loads of frustrating bits that you have to do again and again and again and again and again.... Personal favourite bits include leaps of faith in the dark tunnels and riding along on the back of a snuffling wild boar. Fun for all the family!

5.0 out of 5 stars Take a SUPER SPIN! 2 Nov 2004
Whoever thought of this game is a GENIUS! It has everything you want from a platformer. No wonder it grabbed a well deserved platinum so soon. You can do everything and anything you want. Kick enemy's asses as you smash boxes, collect wumpa fruit (they look like apples),jump trenches,get gems ang keys,enlist help from a mask and literally become king of the jungle. So if you want fun, frolics and a whole host of challenges to overcome, then get this. NOW!

5.0 out of 5 stars Staggering 16 April 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The Stuff Of legends.

Quite simply the best playstation game of all time. This game defined my childhood and if you haven't been introduced to the Crash series you haven't experienced true gaming. I cannot Recommend this enough. This is far better than any final fantasy, resident evil, tomb raider, even the fifa games. Fun for all ages, a Sheer Triumph.
