This game actually brings back some fond memories!
In the early days of the PS1 and N64, one thing the N64 had over the PS1 was its Super Mario 64 with its "go-anywhere" style of play. Now we take it for granted, but back then the ability to wander around freely in a 3d game was a source of great fascination and wonderment.
Croc was really the first PS1 game to tackle that. It had the cute character and various fantasy lands to explore. I was excited when I picked up the game, but ultimately I was disappointed by its worlds which were actually very restrained once you started exploring.
Even so, it's probably still a decent game, and I plan to re-review that and its sequel.
You ever played Astal? I think that's the best platformer on the Saturn and it's exclusive to that system.
Ok guys, now I feel like turning on my Saturn as soon as I get home from work.
^I own Astal for my Saturn to this day. Wonderful little side scroller, but tough as nails at some points. (i STILL havent gotten past Sea of Clouds to this day) I still prefer Nights into Dreams, Sonic Jam and Rayman over it as far as gameplay goes, but i love the art direction, lovely looking 2-D sprits and amazing musical score.

No I haven't tried it, though I've been wanting to get my hands on it. I love the Saturn, so many random gems no one has ever heard of...
