If you've played the 360 version though, don't go looking for the same game on the DS. Even though they have the same titles and the same basic plot, they are completely different games.
Graphically, I am somewhat disappointed in Crash: Mind Over Mutant on the DS. Given that they already had the cutscenes made for the 360, I would have thought they would use those. They were well done and pretty. I do realize that the DS has limited room on the cartridge, but they shrank Viva Pinata just fine. You can skip the cutscenes if you want, so at least you're not forced to watch them. The scenes in the levels are somewhat boring. They get very repetitive quickly."
