"Mutation - as we all know from comic books and movies - is either totally beneficial, or completely destructive. You're either going to wake up with a bit of a headache and the ability to shoot lasers from your eyes, or you're going to look in the mirror and find you're as ugly as sin and will be shunned by society for the rest of your natural life. Unfortunately for Crash Bandicoot, his superhero days seem some way off.
Sure enough, the little guy is doing what he does best in Mind Over Mutant - jumping on crates, collecting Wumpa fruit and talking to a floating voodoo mask. Crash might have changed a little over those years of kart racing and console changes, but he's still a platformer at heart."
