Adam from Defunct Games took his chance to review Christmas Crisis one more time. I'm glad Adam keeps the CD-i section at Defunct Games alive, let's see what he has to say about Christmas Crisis, picking out my favourite quotes: "In Christmas Crisis for the Philips CD-i, [the bad guy] has rigged twenty-four presents with explosives. Santa must now travel across the world to dismantle the bombs before they fall into the fragile hands of children." "Levels are laid out vertically. This basic gaming formula shows skeptical CD-i players that the system can indeed match 16-bit consoles in its execution and playability." "[In Christmas Crisis], you must earn [passwords]. If you fail to acquire enough points by picking up collectables, you won't get a password." "A 3D mini-game presents itself between some levels in which you steer a sleigh from a first-person point-of-view, the graphics looks impressive!" "On the whole, Christmas Crisis is good, cheerful title with very fine mechanics. It has all the requisites of a good holiday game: bright colors, festive music, and [good] playability." Read the complete review here!
