     original enemies, including titanic creatures such as Scorporilla,
     Ratcicle, Magamadon and Shellephant.  While in control of a monster or
     "jacked," players can throw toxic stink bombs, call lightning down from
     the sky, fire lasers beams from their eyes or even impale enemies with
     a massive scorpion tail -- use all of the creatures' special abilities
     to defeat Neo and Nina Cortex.

  *  Hyper-Dynamic Combat -- For the first time ever, Crash now has a
     powerful acrobatic fighting system that includes punches and flying
     kicks, multiple attacks and special counter moves.  Players can
     power-up skills to unlock new attacks and blazing combos.

  *  Exploration and Adventure -- With an amazingly expanded move set, Crash
     can now interact with his world in totally new ways.  Players will be
     able to wall-run, swing from ropes and flip off springboards -- Crash
     can even toss Aku Aku on the ground to surf, skate, grind and shred.

  *  Wacky Co-Op Action -- At any point in the game, a second player can
     join in the fun and play as Carbon-Crash to help unleash total chaos!
     In a totally innovative twist to co-op action gaming, Crash can even
     jack Carbon-Crash (or vice versa) for some hysterical Crash
     "jacked"-Crash mayhem.
