Take control of Crash as he runs, jumps, and spins through 30 levels of intense action on three different Australian islands. Only you can help Crash save the animals, save his girlfriend and foil Dr. Cortex’s plot.

Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back – The evil Dr. Neo Cortex is back…out this time to save the world? And he’s asking for help from his arch nemesis, Crash Bandicoot? Is this just a conniving plan to lure Crash into Cortex’s next dastardly experiment? Can Crash win again or will he join Cortex’s mindless zoo? Bigger free-roaming 3-D environments, all-new animations and a whole host of colorful characters – watch as our hero Crash, ice-skates, rodeo-rides a polar bear and jet-packs through zero-gravity in the continuing adventures of Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back – This time he ain’t joking!

All new-style gameplay action – scuba dive, ride a motorcycle or a baby T-Rex and go free-roaming airborne in a plane! Play as Coco! Gallop along the Great Wall of China on a tiger, go extreme on a jet-ski and other high-flying surprises! Prove your skills with the new Super-charge Body Slam, Super Slide, Double Jump, Death-Tornado Spin and a Laser-Guided Bazooka. All new enemies include a new Big Boss, Uka Uka, N. Tropy, a menacing Dingodile and of course, the return of some favorites like N. Gin and Tiny. More Action. More Fun. More Puzzles and Secret Levels. And you didn’t think it could get any better!

Crash is Back! and so Worth it!

Reviewed by on

Crash Bandicoot is the original mascot for the Sony Playstation back in the early 90's and it was only a matter of time before he returned and with a brilliant remaster of the original trilogy. Not only is this trilogy set a Nostalgic trip of note, it also brings back the same challenging levels, meaning it isn't watered down. All levels beautifully remastered, bringing our imagination of what it could've looked like, back in the 90s, to colourful life. It is perfect to introduce the newer generation of gamers to old school 3d platformers and showing what real challenging and speed levels are all about, whilst maintaining the nostalgic element for older fans of the original series (I throw original around a lot, because what came after Crash 5, wasn't the best) I can only hope they bring back Crash Team Racing, Crash Bash and Crash 5 Wrath of Cortex, just to complete the Series. If anything this trilogy makes you want more.

A solid 5 outta 5!
Not difficult to figure out.
Challenging, but in a fun way
Nostalgia
3 games in 1! how often do you get that?!

Totally Worth It.

Great nostalgic fun, really tough challenge!

The Crash Bandicoot games were my absolute favourite growing up, so I was thrilled at the news of the original trilogy being rebooted for the PS4! The graphics are the biggest improvement, with Crash looking much less geometric. The soundtrack is my favourite part, and hasn't changed a bit, with the same catchy music that you'll be humming all week! All of the levels are just as much fun as you remember, with all the original characters joining in. The biggest issue is with the controlls and gameplay, and it's where the game trips up significantly. Yes, the original games were challenging, but they weren't impossible. The fun quickly wares out after no less than fifty attempts trying to beat a level! For what is supposed to be pure nostalgic fun, it's a pitty they dialled up the difficulty so much on what is otherwise a perfect remaster.

An old classic returns

Reviewed by on

Played the trilogy on my PS way back and was stoked to see a old friend return in remastered state. If you enjoyed it way back you should enjoy again now but be warned can be a little difficult a specially Crash Bandicoot1.

Best Nostalgic Game

This game stays true to the original games and Graphics look brilliant.
The game is harder cause of modern game design making for hours of endless fun

HD Remastered

Reviewed by on

It's the same great game but with HD graphics etc, it's allot of fun, not the easiest game if you are a trophy hunter, but can play hours on end.

The controls are a let down

Reviewed by on

The game looks great and is decent value however the controls are terrible. I revisited the original PS1 games on my PS3 and its a night and day difference, especially when it comes to the special levels involving the riding or controlling of a vehicle or animal. I would rate it lower just for this but it still captures the heart of the franchise.

The only other issue is the rounded ledges and edges on which you used to be able to stand but now roll off since the new engine has a setting incorrectly set up that makes the very edge of an item rounded so you fall off instead of staying put - This is contrary to the original game and makes many levels far more challenging than intended.

Hours of Fun

Reviewed by on

I played the original title way back when and when this came out I had to have it. It's a great game which provides many hours of fun and nostalgia. Would recommend this to anyone whether they have played the original or not.

Nostalgia was never this awesome

Reviewed by on

through and through a perfect remake of the original trilogy! You do get frustrated a lot if you're hunting all the PS trophies, but otherwise no cons, just pros!

A classic

A classic 90s game, enjoyable for all ages.

Well remastered game

Reviewed by on

The game looks great and is fun to play. Crash 1 is pretty difficult, but the other games are more relaxed.
