Summary:

Crash Bandicoot is taking control of the biggest, baddest mutants around. He's using their powers to make himself stronger than ever. Look out evil. Here comes Crash! Game features: Mutant in your Pocket - Not only does Crash keep the ability to control his enemies when he jacks them, now he can store his favourite monsters in his pocket, upgrade them and use their powers when they are most needed. Wumpa Island is fully realized as a real location with a "free-romping" design that allows players to travel and explore through intersecting worlds, with different gameplay options available depending on what creature you've brought along for the ride.

The story of the game is about Crash Bandicoot who is the only marsupial who can stop the vicious Dr. Neo Cortex who is causing a lot of troubles in Wumpa Island. The main playerÂ’s primary role is to take control of different mutants in order for you to play as them while you utilize their powers to go through obstacles. This can add to the variation of the game, yet the backtracking period which you will perform along with a camera that has a lot of problems will make your adventure be tiresome even if you have not reached its finality.

Game makes use of humorous cutscenes at the outset which also utilize a variety of cartoon styles. The early missions can do good to make you familiar with the controls designed for jumping, underground digging, combat fights and many more. However, because of the many missions that you will tackle in order to get to another setting, you will likely return to the beginning again. For example, when you are done going through some platforms and hazards and have completed your objective, you will likely do it again and oftentimes, it will be in a backward manner.

Missions you will undertake involve many combat encounters and the offensive moves you will be using will include a melee attack which is basic, a more potent block-breaking attack and you should have at least a special move specific to a character. Unluckily, Crash is not entirely fun to play with considering that his abilities are limited than the mutants. His ability to spin is not remarkable when compared to the ability of the RhinoRoller to become a spike-covered ball and then steamroll the enemies.

Once you progress with the game, you can actually play with a friend acting as the sister of Crash or he can also take the form of Aku Aku which is a wooden mask that has the capability to float around the screen with the task of collecting items and throwing chickens to opponents. Both roles can be fun but only short-lived.

Crash Bandicoot: Mind Over Mutants has appearance, sounds and many more identical to Crash of the Titans. Even if the combat system is already getting better, however, this will not be sufficient to resist the negative bearing which the recent design of the free-roaming world has undertake. The cutscenes also will not prove to be helpful although, they really are a delight but their appearance will be too late and once you have unlocked them, it will already be too late. If you have high hopes with the game, you will only end up disappointed.
