    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.

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. Expand

    To me, Crash Bandicoot always has been in good games, apart maybe the Bash Party ones. I never understood complains about the Wrath of Cortex and Twinsanity. I taught they were as good as the first ones on the PSX. I

    Now this game is fun on the hack and slash category...... BUT this is a crash game NOT spiral knights. Honest im a HUGE crash fan, one of my early gaming experiences were by crash. As an old crash player this is what i say:
    Crash of the titans is the fyy? on crash industry, by removing fun platforming that was GOLD in old crash game's, it is nowhere fun as the oldies and definitely is not

    Crash of the titans is the fyy? on crash industry, by removing fun platforming that was GOLD in old crash game's, it is nowhere fun as the oldies and definitely is not a game for liker s of old crash. Sure it has it's funny moments, some funny cut-scenes etc but the game itself is missing the soul. Crash. has died on my heart, not the old one. but the new one on the beginning

    Don't get me wrong, if you haven't herd about old crash, then you probably will have some good time's with it. but if you want some good crash, head over to psn store and buy all first 3 crash games.

    Being a Crash fan since the series began, I am glad to say this new incarnation of Crash is excellent. It excels in areas Crash never focused on before. It gives you better combat, more variety, more lively bonus rooms and the new ability to hijack, also known as mind control, large opponents called Titans.

It excels in areas Crash never focused on before. It gives you better combat, more variety, more lively bonus rooms and the new ability to hijack, also known as mind control, large opponents called Titans. There's 15 of these monsters in the game, 3 bosses included, and they each have 3 moves with 1 Mutants who have a secret move not listed and one whose move is acknowledged. The platforming is rare and not very impressive, but the combat and bonus rooms make up for it. The game is somewhat short, around 7 hours. But you have collectibles and a rating on how you do 3 tasks in each level. One is getting a high enough combo. Another is finding 3 hidden spy bots in the level, and the other is defeating a certain amount of enemy fodder the size of Crash. The cast have gained new re-designs. Thir looks have changed to be more modern and edgy and I believe they are improvements to reflect the better gameplay. The personalities are also interesting, but they lack some seriousness and some like Tiny get no boss fight out of story-directed cowardness which is a shame. The game isn't perfect, but it's a great change and refreshing improvement over past titles which, while good and great in their own ways, lacked good combat and other innovations which make this game improve in those ways, admittedly at the loss of some positives from the old games. Hopefully they'll fuse the best of both gameplay types one day. In the end, this is a great title for kids and gamers who want to play something unique, innovative and refreshing. Expand

    This instalment of the series improves on most aspects of the old games, bringing in new, better world design (although it misses the previous games' charm) and innovated character design, with both good and bad points, though overall it misses the mark.

    Overall, it's a great game, especially if you don't posses nostalgic bias.

    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.
  2. A delightful, brilliantly realised platformer, Tians would have scored higher were it not for its reliance on competition. [Nov 2007, p.80]
  3. It's a fairly sturdy, combat-heavy platformer with a good hook, but it lacks a real distinct attitude.
