XBox 360 is mainly used for violent, hardcore games such as Call of Duty or Halo. The only exception is sports games. What happened to the days of playing beloved platformers? Well, if you miss those days, you will probably enjoy this game. It may not be a top quality adventure game, but it is a fun, yet different, open world platformer that will entertain you. -----GRAPHICS----- The graphics in this game are not supposed to be realistic. Crash Bandicoot is a cartoon, and the cut-scenes prove it. But the graphics still look good. -----FEATURES----- The game just has the story mode. No extra modes. But, that is not such a bad thing. You can tell they put a lot of time into it. The cut-scenes are done great and are presented in different styles. The main game is actually very long, and will take hours to complete. When you beat the main game, there are many side quests and achievements to complete, so the game is pretty lengthy. -----GAME-PLAY----- The game plays pretty good. You walk around in an open world. The game indicates where you go, and you pass by jumps and hazards to get through. Enemies try to attack you, but the most interesting part of this game is when you encounter a mutant. You can actually take control of them after beating them up. You can then use their powers against your enemies and to get through parts of the game. It's a pretty cool addition that makes this platformer unique. Also, the game features 2 player co-op, so a friend can drop in and out at any time to play with you. Unfortunately, the co-op is not online, so you have to play side-by-side on the same unit. PROS: Nice cartoon visuals, good cut-scenes, fun platforming, taking over mutants is unique and enjoyable, co-op is nice, lengthy story mode, plenty of side-missions. CONS: Can get repetitive, some small glitches, only the story mode. CONCLUSION: This is a fun platformer which is great to play as a break from all of the violent and gore filled games you are probably playing. It may not be the perfect platformer, but you will have fun playing it, and that is all that matters.
