    With its juvenile humor and low difficulty this is probably targeted for kids, but it's a decent holdover until "Super Mario Galaxy" comes along. [Nov 2007, p.142]

    Crash might be getting on in years for a videogame mascot, and his latest outing falls well short of classic status, but a few disarming new tricks prove he's not over the hill just yet.

    A delightful, brilliantly realised platformer, Tians would have scored higher were it not for its reliance on competition. [Nov 2007, p.80]
  4. It's a fairly sturdy, combat-heavy platformer with a good hook, but it lacks a real distinct attitude.
  5. The game may not win any awards for length, or variety, but the game play it does offer is lots of fun, well acted and presented with a high level of quality.
  6. 65
    A good idea wrapped in a mediocre game.
  7. 65
    Crash of the Titans is fun, but it's really just platforming by the numbers. Nothing more, nothing less.
  8. Crash of the Titans is an interesting proposition for platform fans. As a new game in the series, its star loses a bit of shine and character, due to the emergence of titans.

    Basic stuff, plus some monster riding. Ho hum. [Christmas 2007, p.82]

    If there is any underrated game released in the past 5 years, it is Crash of the Titans for the PS2. First, let's dig into the story. TheIf there is any underrated game released in the past 5 years, it is Crash of the Titans for the PS2. First, let's dig into the story. The story of the game is that Coco is kidnapped and Crash (along with Aku Aku) must rescue Coco and stop Cortex from building yet another evil machine. The gameplay is a good turn for the Crash series and brings creativity to the table. Not only do you have your standard Crash gameplay, but you can use Aku Aku to control mutants. That even includes the bosses! There is not much wrong with the gameplay except sometimes the mutants can be hard to jack without dying instantly due to the AI always blocking your attacks. The issue isn't that bad because if you do run into a situation like this, you can find a power up nearby that gives you the ability to control the mutant in one hit. If there's another weak point in the game, it is definitely the character design. Like many gamers, I do not like the way Radical Entertainment completely changes Aku Aku and Uka Uka's look but the others seem fine to be honest. So, what's the final verdict? Crash of the Titans is NOT, I repeat NOT a bad game. Sure it doesn't resemble the classics, but there is a time when a formula gets a little bit repetitive. Just ask Nintendo. Full Review »

    Awful game. They totally changed everything that made Crash charming in the past. New design of cast is painful to see. Crash got tattoos andAwful game. They totally changed everything that made Crash charming in the past. New design of cast is painful to see. Crash got tattoos and is mumbling like idiot. This game is also not platforming, just beat`em up with some generic mutants. Repetitive gameplay, almost linear lvls and jacking. Pile of turd this game is. Full Review »
