I loved Crash Bandicoot on Playstation. It was reason enough to own Playstation. It had a great soundtrack (I still hum the tunes every so often), great environments and levels (although often times generic to games)
But this game is going to suck. So far what I've played (downloaded the demo on 360) It is repetitious and in some things seems to have ripped off Mario... It has akward and extremely simple fighting mechanics and it has almost lost its platforming element. What happened to out-running Indiana Jones boulders? What happened to dodging spikes? And why are all the enemies scientists and huge monstrous beasts? It sucks! It has gotten even MORE child oriented (Crash doesn't even seem cool anymore) and the thing is, yeah crash has always been for the kids. But I still play Crash 1 and Crash Warped and love them. They are fun and classic.
Boycot this game. Don't get it.
