Cons: Frustrating at times
In Warped their are some new characters that you have to beat like Dingodile. The new character for the good guy is Coco Crashes sister. The new evil mask Aku Aku is pretty cool looking. The overall aspect of the game is the same to the other two before it. The only real difference is what levels you have to beat, and the relics. The relics are major in this game they really determine the good Crash players from the average players.
Staying on the topic of relics their are two. They are the Sapphire and Gold. The Sapphire are easy to get you don't have to be really good to get them. Even though in some levels you have to be pretty good in order to get it. The Gold relic is what you want they are a lot harder to get. Really the only way that you get these relics is by luck or you are just really good. If you get all the blue relics and then all of the gold relics you can really play this game.
Now we move onto the crystals and gems. The whole concept on them hasn't changed at all. The crystals are still the easiest thing to get out of the crystals, gems, and relics. They are the key to getting to the next warp area after you defeat the boss from the are that you are in. The gems are a little harder to get, but they aren't too difficult to get. The only downside of the gems is in certain levels were the big dinosaur chases you it is really hard to get all the boxes broken to get the gem. Their are two kinds of gems which is kind of weird the only difference between them is color. Color gems are the same except you have to do something else in order to get them like beat a certain level or get a certain gem in a level. Otherwise they are the exact same.
The boxes have all stayed the same except for one. The timer box it can be a pain at times when you are trying to get that gem when all of the sudden the time for that box runs out and turns to steel. This is a real pain. The nitro boxes are still a thorn in your side as you could say. TNT boxes are still a little of a pain but not too much. The only real time is when you have a bow on top of steel boxes with a TNT bow on top of that. It is a problem because you have to spin at the right time. Unless you have an Uka Uka masks then you are okay. The rest of the boxes don't need to be talked about because they are the same and aren't that important.
The powers that you get after you defeat a boss are to a point cool. You need them for the next levels and bosses to come. The coolest one is the wampa fruit bazooka. The other ones aren't as nice to have but you still need them. The other powers are the super body slam, double jump, and the dash ability.
That is about all their is to the game. Overall I recommend it to have it is fun at times. So get it.
