Evil is at an all-time decline, so Crash's arch-nemesis Dr. Neo Cortex is designing the ultimate weapon: Crunch, the extra-evil-bio-engineered-super-bandicoot! In order to complete Crunch, the good doctor needs more power--the kind of power that only evil, renegade voodoo masks can provide. Enter the Elementals.
Set free by the evil voodoo mask Uka Uka, the Elementals control various aspects of the environment. They are so powerful, and so dangerous, that they almost destroyed the Earth once, and were sealed in special crystals to protect the Earth from certain doom. Uka Uka believes that by harnessing the power of these evil masks, Dr. Cortex will have all the power he needs to complete Crunch, and finally finish off Crash.
So once again Crash returns to his crystal-collecting, box-bashing, bad guy-spinning ways. Can he stop the masks? Will he defeat Crunch? Only time, and your weary game-playing hands, will tell.
The Wrath of Cortex is the hardest game in the series' history. There are 30 levels, seven different vehicles, bonus levels, and a time-trial mode. As you progress through the game, you fight five bosses. Each time you defeat a boss, you unlock a new move (double jump, bazooka, tiptoe, Crash dash, and death tornado). Although the coolest feature is that you get to play as Crash's sister Coco on some levels.
The game is good, but is it perfect? The graphics are solid, but not much of an improvement over the PlayStation2 version--the game definitely doesn't take full advantage of the Xbox's hardware. Also, the long load times for levels can be annoying. Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex was not developed by Naughty Dog, the company that started the series. The game, while faithfully following the traditional feel of the series, misses some of the polished quirkiness that Naughty Dog is known for.
Bottom line: The Wrath of Cortex is a great game for all ages, and will give you 40 or more hours of solid gameplay. --Bryan Karsh

Or if your someone who has never played crash and have an xbox go and buy it. This is only the FIRST next generation CRASH and I can't wait for more...I think CRASH will still be a cool game for the next 5 years. this game is kinda slow but is really fun at times!...you heard it from Lunar Larry
It's fun for everyone in the family (my 7 year old played it without a problem - but younger kids may not be able to). It will keep you busy for a while (there are about 25 different levels to fight through, plus 5 "bosses" - and you can revisit levels to get more lives or other bonuses). There's almost no learning curve.
It's just plain old fun!
If you liked Fuzion Frenzy, and you don't mind single player games, then you'll like Crash.
Some complain that it's graphics aren't breakthrough - but they are certainly sufficient for you to clearly see what is going on.
The only real complaint: I wish there were a 2 player mode.
Graphics get 5 stars
Sound gets 4 stars
Gameplay gets 4 stars
Controls get 3 stars
Overall, I'd buy this game if you love Crash (like me) and are a good gamer (not like me).
Other than that, given the type of game this is, its great. There are a lot different types of game play, and they are all pretty well thought out. Game play gets easier, in my opinion, as you go along. You get powers which help in all types of situation, making the last parts easier.
Music, is decent, fits the game so I can't complain.
Graphics, their also decent. They never catch your attention, especially since you only see what the makers want you to see.
Gameplay, This is the downfall. Camera, as you've read. Plus the extra character, koko lacks the powers you gain. This is very frustrating when going back for time trials on her levels. The powers are listed in the start menu, but sure don't work.
Its good. You have to replay it to beat it. You collect gems, then relics, colored gems, and beat bosses. You have to pass levels multiple times in order to beat the game. So you have to replay it, whether you like it or not.
Overall if your a patient person, go for it. Its a lot of fun, but if you the type that breaks controllers AVOID this game!!!
