Series Crash Bandicoot

When we last saw Crash Bandicoot he had just defeated his arch-nemesis, Dr. Neo Cortex, and was taking some well-earned time off. So now here he is, with him super-smart sis, Coco, and friendly companion, Aku Aku, soaking up a few rays on the beach. But, as we all know, diabolical evil always finds a way to ruin Crash's Day.

By harnessing the destructive power of the Four Elements, Air, Earth, Water and Fire, Dr. Neo Cortex creates Crunch, a Super-Bandicoot with one Mission…demolish all that lies before him. Will Crash and Coco be up to the challenge of traveling across the planet and beyond to defeat the four Elemental Masks, Crunch, and Dr. Cortex? You can bet your bandicoot they will!

Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex is the first Crash Bandicoot game for a system other than the original PlayStation. The story is set some time after Warped: Dr. Cortex wants revenge after being defeated by Crash (again). For this purpose, he creates Crunch, a super-bandicoot who can destroy everything that crosses his way. So Crash needs to defeat Crunch (and in the end, Dr. Cortex).

The game is a typical jump and run, with some other action passages, like air combat and a sequence where Crash is trapped inside a giant sphere rolling around in some sort of rollercoaster. All graphics are in 3D, and the sound is typical for cartoon games like this. The whole game is pretty straightforward in design, getting stuck on a puzzle is not really possible.
