  1. 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]
  2. Crash of the Titans, in our opinion, sees the Bandicoot returning to his former glory. If you are after a decent platformer to play alone, or with a friend, we doubt you’ll come away from this one disappointed.
  3. Despite following the same formula as a lot of adventure titles, Crash of the Titans' new idea of taking over enemies to resolve battles and solve puzzles is quite unique. Throw in a two player co-op mode and you have some nice replay value on your hands.
  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. The six hours it will take you to complete the twenty-level contest hardly feels substantial. It is not the slam-dunk comeback fans hoped for from Crash's 360 debut, but it is far from a failure.
  6. This may be little more than a last generation game with upgraded visuals, but it does what it’s supposed to, it’s a fun platformer that‘s not too taxing on the brain.
  7. Not as sophisticated as many Xbox 360 games out there, Crash of the Titans is, at the end of that day, a scrolling platformer. It doesn't need to be sophisticated - it needs to be fun, frantic, colourful, noisy, winsome and comical, which is exactly what it manages to be.
  8. It's a fairly sturdy, combat-heavy platformer with a good hook, but it lacks a real distinct attitude.
  9. Mistaken assumptions aside, the Xbox 360 doesn’t exactly have a lot of new, colourful, non-shooty blood and gore type games, so if that’s what you’re shopping for then while you couldn’t do much better, you equally couldn’t do much worse right now.
  10. It's yet another game in which the mind-numbing clichés of platformers haven't been challenged, but embraced, oh-so-ironically.
  11. Does exactly what it says on the tin, a solid platformer with a few twists and some nice ideas. Could have done with another coat of polish though.
  12. 65
    A good idea wrapped in a mediocre game.
  13. There simply is not enough "Meat" here to cater for older gamers who undoubtedly will breeze through with their eyes half shut, whilst eating, smoking and watching another TV at the same time.

    Crash Bandicoot is one of the all-time great platforming characters, not a brawler, so let's keep it that way.
  15. Crash of the Titans is an interesting proposition for platform fans. As a new game in the series, its star loses a bit of shine and character, due to the emergence of titans.
  16. Save for the cooperative mode, there’s not much here worthy of a gamer’s time that is devoted to buying and renting the best games.
  17. It isn’t as impressive as the original games were, but overall Crash seems to be making titanic steps in the right direction.
  18. Taken on its own, Crash of the Titans is not a bad game. It does improve the series with the introduction of new gameplay ideas, but nothing you haven't seen before.
  19. We were pleasantly surprised by Crash. The ability to take over creatures lifts the standard linear platforming from banality. [Issue 26, p.97]
  20. As much as I pick on Crash, I was secretly hoping that Crash of the Titans would put him back in the spotlight. It had an excitingly original concept but failed to take full advantage of its possibilities.
  21. Crash of the Titans makes a solid, if uninspiring, choice for younger fans of the series, but everyone else should head for more enjoyable all-ages fare like "Beautiful Katamari" or even--yes--"Surf's Up". [Holiday 2007, p.82]
  22. If you thought that Crash's first appearance on the next generation of platforms might enhance its appeal from a technical standpoint, forget it. This is very much a game designed primarily with the PS2 and Wii in mind, with a fairly lazy high-def makeover late in development.
  23. Overall Crash of the Titans is an average title that will provide some enjoyment to younger gamers just long enough until something better comes out. And let’s be honest here, it’s not like the 360 is brimming with decent platformer titles.
  24. A loose kids' game that could do with some titaning up. [Dec 2007, p.90]
  25. We can say that the co-op multiplayer adds something new to this tired franchise. But there aren’t many different objectives and the Xbox 360 version is a mere port of the PS2. Maybe someday Crash can recover its old glory, but that day hasn’t come yet. [Dec 2007]

    Not the best platforming game out there but probably the most under-rated.

    Definitely different from the past Crash installments, but a fun game nonetheless! The co-op makes it much more enjoyable, but it's fun even without that. You go from episode to episode of varying levels and settings, with new minions to fight and different titans to "jack" and ride. Heck, the titans are probably what make the game as good as it is.

    it was pretty fun to play but that really is it. it doesnt challenge you at all and the graphics look like it is paper but altogether, it is quite enjoyable. it is a game that took me very little to complete and was altogether average, but the fact that it had some humor and it was altogether fun gives it a 6.
