Crash Bandicoot 2 is bigger, bolder, and better than its predecessor. The sequel to Crash Bandicoot features lush 3D environments, more than 30 levels, challenging puzzles, and new bonus rounds. The game is full of brand-new enemies and characters--Kimodo Joe and Moe, Tiny, N. Gin, and Crash's younger sister Coco. But don't worry--old foes like Ripper Roo and Dr. N. Brio, are back for more fun and mischief. Crash's moves have also been enhanced, so that he is able to super-jump, long jump, crawl, slide, body slam, run, swing, surf on a jetboard, and fly through the air with a jetpack.
Release Date: November 5, 1997
