  1. I will have to say that Crash: Mind Over Mutant is a very fun and innovative game that is easy to get into and play.
  2. If players are looking for a few fun Crash-based mini-games and a standard platformer with everything one would expect from a platformer, then the title may be something worth picking up. However, if players are looking for an epic platformer with a plethora of surprises and story twists, players may want to keep looking.
  3. Folks who are looking for a new Crash Bandicoot should be satisfied with Crash: Mind over Mutant. On the whole, the game is made for younger players, but it will also entertain more experienced users for a while.
  4. I understand that Crash: Mind Over Mutant is good on the consoles. Not great, but good. It seems that a little more time and effort could have gone into the DS version, and it makes me sad.
  5. A year after Crash of the Titans, Crash Bandicoot is back to the Nintendo DS. Last year's 3D adventure is over; now it's time of a classic 2D platforming game. Sadly, this title supposes a step back from Crash of the Titans, being too easy and too short to be enjoyable for most players.
  6. A poor DS conversion attempt, this version does wrong everything that the console versions finally got right.

    Why is this like this, I've been a crash fan since 2 and I tried to like this game. This game tried to be like the Crash games on the GBA andWhy is this like this, I've been a crash fan since 2 and I tried to like this game. This game tried to be like the Crash games on the GBA and it fails. Crash of the titans on the Ds is a 3d platforming brawler like the psp, and console versions but not mind over mutant. The psp version is like the console version while the ds version is a clunky, uninspired, 2d platformer. What were they thinking while making this, oh yeah, big cash cow money train. Don't buy this game, ether get the gba games or the console version Full Review »
