The Motorcycle Levels are four levels in Crash Bandicoot: Warped. Each of them requires you to beat your opponents to the finish line.

Why they suck

  1. The turning on the motorcycle is awful. It's either too slow or too sharp, with no middle ground whatsoever.
  2. The other racers are much wider than you are (as they are driving cars), making it easy to slam into them by accident.
  3. You can't go backwards. So if you miss one box while going for the gem, you're screwed.
  4. Trying to get the Box Gem is a pain as you are forced to get them while riding a motorcycle (especially when trying to get Time Boxs for Relics), you basic have two options.
    1. Try to get all of the Box Gems in one while trying to win the race.
    2. Force yourself to lose the race so that you can get all of the Box Gems, and then beat the race on a second playthrough.
  5. In order for you to get the Crystal in these levels, instead of finding them in the level, you have to beat the Racers in a race, so if you lose, you must restart the level all over again.
  6. Cheap unfair bottomless pits.
  7. You can't manually control your speed. So if you mess up even once, it's hard to recover.
  8. In the original version, you are sent out of the level if you lose, so you have to re-enter the level to try again.
  9. Can't slow down the other racers in any way.

Why Area 51? in particular sucks

Area 51? is the secrete level found in one of thr Motorcycle Levels in Crash Bandicooy: Warped, it is the absolute worst level in the game, if not, the entire series. It comes with all of the above problems, and a few more:

  1. Instead of cars, your foes are UFOs. As a result, they can fly over obstacles!
  2. It's very dark, so it's impossible to see ahead of you. This can result in going off-road very easily, missing boxes, and not seeing the enemy vehicles way, way too often.
  3. The Relic time is beyond brutal, even the sapphire time.
  4. The level is one of the longest in the game, and has the longest platinum time.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The music is decent.
  2. At least their different.
  3. At least Area 51? is an optional level, so it doesn't need to be beating in order to beat the game.
