  • Summary: Crash's worst enemy is now his favorite weapon! A new evil has invaded the island paradise of Crash Bandicoot with sinister plans of destruction. In a strange twist, Crash reluctantly pairs with his arch-enemy, Dr. Neo Cortex, in order to save his world. Through their unorthodox partnership, Cortex is abused as Crash's favorite weapon when Crash and Cortex are controlled as one in an hilarious all-new gameplay mechanic. Encounter reactive enemies, fully immersive environments, and a wacky cast of all new characters in Crash Bandicoot's craziest and funniest adventure ever. [Vivendi Universal] Expand

  1. Creating a gamer's game through and through, Traveller's Tales has delivered a 60 fps cartoon epic without sacrificing expanse, dwarfing boss encounters or vivid effects by skillfully balancing model and environment integrity with performance. [Oct 2004, p.69]
  2. I was pleasantly surprised by what I found here. When it wasn't kicking my head in for little to no reason, Twinsanity's a fun and funny game that's well worth a few hours of your time.
  3. A decent game which is heavily pulled down by the lack of save points.
  4. All the ingredients for a nice simple and playable game are here, it’s just that carelessness and an unpolished roughness drags the game down to mediocre levels.
  5. The pinpoint difficulty of the proceedings also limits the game’s appeal to either small children that will play anything or hardcore “Crash” fans from the PSOne era.
  6. It doesn't do anything we've never seen before, but what it does do is usually done well.
  7. Full completion of the game takes time, and whilst there are some nice extras on the DVD to unlock, you can't get around the fact that it's time that could be spent doing something far, far better.

    Crash Twinsanity is my main childhood memory, & when I went back to it years later, I found that opinions of the game had not changed at all, in fact, I loved it even more.
    The main thing that really impressed me is that every single level in the game felt perfect, especially my favourite two levels, Classroom Chaos & Ant Agony, Classroom Chaos is complete chaos as the title suggests, whereas Ant Agony is an incredibly long, platform heavy blast through the evil twins lair, it was always my favourite when I was a child.
    Another thing I really love is the way you travel to 4 completely different locations throughout the course of the game, you go to Crash's island, Cortex's ice base, Nina's school, & the evil twins dimension, otherwise known as the 10th dimension, the 10th dimention is my favourite part of this game.
    The soundtrack is the best the series has seen so far, it's absolutely brilliant, fast & exciting.
    The story is also simple & fun, but can be a bit inconsistent, although I'm sure whether that's the story or the inclusion of welcome but unnecessary characters, but one of my favourite things about this game is the humour, Cortex is absolutly hilarious in this game, which is great, but my favourite thing about the game is how you can play as three different characters, Crash, Cortex, & Nina, & they all work perfectly, I admit I've had some irritating issues with Nina's section of the final boss, but she's still great & I hope she is playable again, when we eventually get another crash game, seriously it's been 4 years since the last Crash Bandicoot game, so if any video game developer from Sony, Microsoft or Nintendo, or all you third-party companies, we miss Crash Bandicoot, & my needs will not be complete until we get another Crash Bandicoot game, just don't make it like Crash of the Titans or Mind over Mutant, Thank you!

    It doesn't feel the same as Naughty Dog's games, but that's simply not the case, Crash Twinsanity makes up that terrible Lacklustre Wrath of Cortex and takes Crash into a whole new direction without losing the plot or potential as a great platformer. After playing Wrath of Cortex, you may think "how can they take Crash any further?" well, Crash and Cortex meet the "Evil Twins" who come to their island, they plan to destroy their island paradise and has Crash & Cortex teaming up and working together, and yes, they do fall out several times. The levels are great and good for this Crash game especially the 3rd set of them. Often, you will be dragging Cortex via crystal and using him as a weapon. If you begin to get bored during the iceberg place, then just carry on because the game will get more interesting after that, it gets better. Only thing I don't like about this game is that you only get to play Cortex and Nina just once, this game should've been bigger. As for the "mixed" or bad reviews, they didn't like Crash Bandicoot 4 much because of the bad design, lacklustre gameplay and that the game was the same as its predecessors, they finally get a whole new game and they still don't think of it as much of an improvement or a great game. Oh yeah, whether this game was rushed or not, I don't know. I wish they did a direct sequel to this game, including with the same developers, sadly, this is the last Crash Bandicoot game before it all falls apart with that stupid Crash of The Titans & Mind Over Mutant. Although Crash Tag Team Racing is also a very good game as well, I mean chronically. To me, Crash Twinsanity is the last Crash game. While you might not go back and play the levels again other than to get the remaining gems and then be totally done with this game and not come back, this game is atleast fun while it lasts. Expand

    It's a good game for the first few levels, then it all goes downhill. The framerate is just horrible at some parts of the game, and once you beat the second world you will notice that it seems as if alot of cutscenes were taken out of the game and it feels very unfinished and rushed. Another major flaw about this game was the enemies due to the fact when you would hit them, they wouldn't die or their dead prop will get in your way allowing another enemy to hit you. Also when you break crates sometimes it doesn't even give you what is in side of it. It could have been much better but the flaws really do ruin the game Expand
