It's nice to see that I wasn't the only person tat had this as a kid, though it's still a massive minority. This game is ridiculous, over-the-top, and still does unique things with the platforming dynamic compared to retro and modern games. It's an underrated classic in my opinion. Maybe not on the level of Crash or Spyro, but just below them and great either way.
If you had first Playstation console then you must remember Crash. You probably remember also Spyro, two of them were great platformer games. For me, what made a great platformer game, was Pandemonium. It was just different - beatiful, and in game model of Nikki looked really hot (well, I was just a kid). I remember that one day I had Otitis media and my ear hurt like hell. I thought this pain will kill me, so I wanted to play last time my favorite platformer. I'm not sure how long I have played but I finished the game and I was happy, ready to die. Then mom took me to doctor and everything was fine, since I'm writing about that in some review about great classic platformer game. Sadly, noone of my friends played it ever - they simply loved and played over and over other more popular platformers. Pandemonium will always have a special place in my heart. Classic that can't be missed, at least when you love old games.
I remember originally playing this game at a friends, during a sleepover way back on the original PlayStation and loved it! During the days when 3D platformers were all the rage, this colourful title was enjoyable with many power-ups and enemies to go through. Playing it now is reminiscent and brings back many memories, however the graphics have aged (which is expected from a title that is coming up to 20 years old)
