  • Summary: In Crash of the Titans, players fight a nefarious plot hatched by Crash's arch nemeses Neo and Nina Cortex to mutate the local creatures into titanic abominations. Using Crash's legendary mix of outrageous antics and daredevil bravado, players "hijack" enemies to take control of their action and use their fearsome powers against all manner of enemies. "Jack to Attack!" – Control, play and battle as 15 enemies, including titanic creatures such as Scorporilla, Ratcicle, Magamadon and Shellephant. While in control of a monster players can throw toxic stink bombs, call lightning down from the sky, fire lasers beams from their eyes or even impale enemies with a massive scorpion tail - use all of the creatures' special abilities to defeat Neo and Nina Cortex. Crash now has a powerful acrobatic fighting system that includes punches and flying kicks, multiple attacks and special counter moves. Players can power-up skills to unlock new attacks and blazing combos. Crash can now interact with his world in totally new ways. Players can wall-run, swing from ropes and flip off springboards – Crash can even toss Aku Aku on the ground to surf, skate, grind and shred. At any point in the game, a second player can join in the fun and play as Carbon-Crash to help unleash total chaos. In a totally innovative twist to co-op action gaming, Crash can even jack Carbon-Crash (or vice versa) for some hysterical Crash "jacked"-Crash mayhem. [Sierra Entertainment] Expand

  1. It is commendable in a way since you know right from the outset that this is a game where you can just play. It is a lot of silly, good natured fun that, while not long in duration, provides a good time.
  2. You may have been expecting yet another "Crash" afterthought scheming to fleece you of another fiddy, but this is a rebirth well worth the investment. [Nov 2007, p.68]
  3. It's just above average, as its gameplay features a good dose of fun with clever platforming setups. The combat is a bit on the slow side and throws off the game's pace, but it gets better with time.
  4. 70
    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.
  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. 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. 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. Collapse

    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 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.

    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 Expand

    No no no this is the wrong way! I like changes and innovates but when you change too much it becomes unrecognizable as a game in the series and people get mad. Changed character models, horrible gameplay, forgettable music and much much more. Expand

    Awful 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. Expand
