  • 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!

    Crash Twinsanity is short of Jak and Ratchet's kind of fun, but it's still an exhilarating effort. Pros: Lots of whacky gameplay, colorful visuals, hilarious characters and dialog, and unlike Wrath of Cortex, the old school platforming is kind of unique in this case. Cons: Once you get to the middle of the game, you realize how effortlessly produced the game is, as if it were rushed. Expand

    This crash comes nowhere close to the other Crash Bandicoot games made. The first half of the game was pretty fun, but after that, things get repetitive and just boring. The story is nothing to boast about either. Overall the game just doesn't hold up long enough to make it great like the old crash games were. Though its not a horrible game, its a true disappointment to the crash series. Expand
