"Perhaps more important, however, is the mere fact that Crash: Mind Over Mutant is a platformer at all. The Xbox 360 is a machine particularly bereft of platformers (though upcoming Banjo Kazooie and Sonic titles may soon correct that), and to play one that's not awful and even intermittently entertaining on the system is really kind of nice. But other platforms have Mario games and Ratchet & Clank games, not to mention the huge library of quality platforming on the PS2, therefore stealing much of the appeal of a game like this. Really, if you're an Xbox gamer starved of your platforming fix, this might just do it for you. Otherwise, it is only merely an average gaming experience. This time of year, you can certainly do better."
