    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. Great fun for our gaming youth and a humorous piece of nostalgia for veterans keen to spank their bandicoots, one last time.
  4. 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.

    Though the game looks and controls well, levels appear to be designed to kill the player in as many cheap ways as possible. [Dec 2004, p.78]
  6. A decent game and offers a few neat tweaks to its classic formula, but in general does very little to break the mold of its predecessors.
  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.

I don't think so.Characters and charismatic history , more freedom of levels, unforgettable soundtrack, funny boss, less linearity. That not bad game makes everything in. On the contrary. Crash Twinsanity isn't classic, but fun and other things that characterized the original trilogy are still present in this game Expand

    [21:16, 3/12/2016] Ayrton: es un juego con situaciones interesantes, una dificultad bastante avanzada
    [21:16, 3/12/2016] Ayrton: aunque es facil de completar al 100% una vez le tomas la mano y ahi la dificultad tambien se ve comprometida

    [21:17, 3/12/2016] Ayrton: tambien de puede destacar como llevaron la trama de cooperacion entre enemigos, muy cliche pero llevada a cabo de una manera convincente
    [21:17, 3/12/2016] Ayrton: el tema de los antagonistas principales puede verse muy forzado, pero esto se debe a lo que dire a continuacion
    [21:17, 3/12/2016] Ayrton: el juego nunca fue completado en su totalidad
    [21:18, 3/12/2016] Ayrton: sierra dio un plazo de 1 año para hacer el juego y esta a solo el 50% de lo planeado
    [21:19, 3/12/2016] Ayrton: asi que para ser un jueho que ni siquiera fue completado y donde se tuvieron que remover muchas cosas incompletas a ultimo momento por no llegar con el tiempo
    [21:19, 3/12/2016] Ayrton: cumple muchisimo
    [21:19, 3/12/2016] Ayrton: tipo uno ni sospecharia de que lo fue
    [21:19, 3/12/2016] Ayrton: tal vez hayan una cantidad numerosa de bugs
    [21:20, 3/12/2016] Ayrton: pero creo que en si es un juego muy decente

An interesting take to see two adversaries working together, yet constantly fighting at every turn. Due to this, the games mechanics work around that theme. And for that, it makes it something of a hidden gem in the PS2/Xbox library.

    There are extra segments that require some finesse out of controls that are not as tight as they could be [such as gathering side gems]. Expect to die a lot. Unlike most Crash games, there are a plethora more Nitro boxes than TNT boxes. A generous amount of 1HKO boxes. The game would've performed better if it had longer development time to fine-tune it.

    Definitely not a game to "100%". However, a play-through to complete the main game has story elements and a colorful cast that will keep you coming back for more. Playing with Dr. Cortex, some tropes are subverted working with him and it was a blast.
