Will live on forever
30 January 2005 | by (someplace) – See all my reviews

Crash Bandicoot is a classic Playstation game, being one of the first Playstation games. As of now, it is almost ten years old. Wow!!! For today, it is considered primitive, but for back in its time it was the new and more advanced version of Super Mario Bros.(another game that lives on forever). Everything about Crash Bandicoot is awesome from the neat and older style graphics, to the complex levels, and the maniac characters. Crash Bandicoot will always remind me of when I was younger and I played this game with my friends all the time.

The story is about an experiment by the evil Dr. Neo Cortex that goes wrong, this experiment is called Crash Bandicoot. Crash is supposed to be loyal to Neo Cortex, but he escapes his lab that was on an island and gets washed up on an island nearby. However, Crash had a girlfriend who is held hostage by Neo Cortex and is having experiments done on her. Crash is supposed to get across the island he got washed up on, the island next to it, and then through Neo Cortex's island in order to defeat Cortex, save the world, and get his girlfriend back.

Along the way, Crash is aided by a witch doctor named Aku Aku. Together they take on several dangers of the island including dangerous plants, wild animals, natives, piranhas, deadly robots, pelicans, rats, and even a few of Cortex's machine gun wielding henchmen that are on his island. Throughout the island are some of Neo Cortex's big henchmen, such as a huge Indian, a crazy dynamite loving kangaroo, an insane Gorilla, and a rat who is much like a '40's gangster with a tommy gun. In the end crash gets to take on Dr. Neo Cortex.

I really loved this game, it really brings back some great memories for me. Hopefully you can find a copy of it somewhere, as of now it's quite rare.
