Crash Bandicoot 3 in 1 is the closest thing we've got to a bona fide mascot on PlayStation. His original outing met with mixed reviews, his second with overwhelming success, and he's on number three. They say the third time's the charm, and in this bandicoot's case that holds very true.
As you've probably guessed by now, Warped's story centers around time travel. It so happens that our hyperactive hero and his little sister have been caught in a time warp and must not only battle the returning Dr. Neo Cortex, but his boss Uka Uka as well. It's an adventure through time as Crash attempts to recover gems and crystals before these two very bad dudes (and plenty of bosses) can use them in their plans for galactic domination.
Warped is very much like Naughty Dog's previous two efforts at its core. Crash still runs, jumps, and spins his way though vertically and horizontally-scrolling 3D environments, classic platforming game style. But it also has its share of improvements. Among these are a wider variety of locales (eight in all, from ancient Egypt to the future), a second playable character (Crash's sister Coco), and the closest thing to free-roaming environments we're likely to see in a Crash title; a biplane dogfight and Jetski-style ocean outing are just two. All-in-all, there are more than 35 stages.
There's also a time trial mode where you can compete against your buddies to see who can get through levels faster, plus unlock a secret warp room is you beat the top time in each. Naughty Dog has also taken strides to ensure that Dual Shock feedback and analog control are both supported in this sequel. You've no doubt played one of Crash's first two adventures.
