    A good idea wrapped in a mediocre game.
  2. It's a fairly sturdy, combat-heavy platformer with a good hook, but it lacks a real distinct attitude.
  3. This is a decent game that could have used a bit more innovation to really make this game top notch and stand out from all of the other platform games already available on this system.
  4. With its juvenile humor and low difficulty this is probably targeted for kids, but it's a decent holdover until "Super Mario Galaxy" comes along. [Nov 2007, p.142]
  5. It had an excitingly original concept but failed to take full advantage of its possibilities. I suppose time will tell if Crash of the Titans is the stepping stone for a proper comeback, or if it’s just another cut in the bandicoot’s constant bloodletting.
  6. Sadly, Crash of the Titans is just more of the same in a new wrapper.
  7. If you're older than twelve, forget about it. Otherwise, this is as good as it gets. [Dec 2007, p.75]
  8. 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]
  9. Still, it is a pleasure to find that while lacking in any real finesse, Titans does feel like a proper Crash Bandicoot title.
  10. A fixed and unforgiving camera also makes the platforming experience frustrating. [Nov 2007, p.105]
  11. A satisfying platform brawler that should easily please younger gamers while providing enough action and humor to keep older gamers interested.
  12. If this was any more generic, it'd be...er, something really generic. [Dec 2007, p.51]
  13. A solid outing for the bandicoot, who soldiers on despite showing signs of age. Kids will love it, adults will be bemused by it and everyone else has played this kind of thing before. [Dec 2007, p.84]
  14. It's fun, but this Crash is in serious need of an overhaul.

    Unfortunately, a few extremely-frustrating problems combined with linear progression and repetitive gameplay means that the more sophisticated gamers amongst you won’t find much more than a few hours worth of enjoyment before you move on, never to return.
  16. Those who dislike linear gameplay, lots of color and cartoon-like characters, however, should think about jacking elsewhere.

    Crash of the Titans is a fun platformer overall on the Wii, and it shows. I played with a friend on the majority of the time, and we had decent fun playing. What's most surprising is the whacky plot (Crash is still speechless). I really enjoyed the mechanics of taking over monsters and using them to one's advantage of the battle. Monster designs are really creative and distinct. Gameplay remains the same throughout, but the overall light-hearted tone ensured smiles all the way. Not the best Crash or platforming game out there, but it was worthwhile on the $30 price tag. Full Review »

    Ah, Crash Bandicoot. We remember your days on the PS1. The platforming, the comedy, and the ridiculous spin-attack, we miss them all. But since Naughty Dog left the franchise, it just hasn Full Review »

    Crash of the titans is a very decent platformer. It does what you expect from it and it actually does that pretty good. Finally a game where not all actions are mapped to a "Waggle your wiimote" kind of thing. Attacks are mapped to regular buttons and that works just fine, I'd rather do that than constantly waggle the wiimote ( witch actually just triggers like pushing a button ). Hijacking the monsters works great and feels good, all t he monsters have a special attack witch you trigger by performing a special motion with the wiimote. Funny enough, this is actually extremely satisfying. Imagine you're jacked onto a huge creature but you're surrounded by other creatures witch are completely owning you. In all your frustration you raise up both wiimote and nunchuck, and then slam them down. Earth begins to rumble, the ground is cracking up and everyone around you just falls down. So basicly the wiimote controles are simple but still extremely satisfying. The graphics are what you would expect them to be, not great but they do the job. The gameplay itself is divided into 3 main elements, witch are jacking creatures, platforming and surfing ( you kinda glide off a hill on a surf board causing mayhem while you're at it). Only downside is that the camera is very very stiff. It realy doesn't move with you, but it doesn't realy matter because this game is as linear as you can get anyways. All and all a good game for the kids, and for elders who are in to this Full Review »
