  1. The music rocks. It's a combination of jungle, pop and a barbershop quartet and is thoroughly weird and catchy. The quirky approach to the composition helps give the game its attitude.
  2. It doesn't do anything we've never seen before, but what it does do is usually done well.
  3. The puzzles are clever and the variety is terrific, but it can be too tough and frustrating, particularly for the young audience the game would otherwise appeal to.
  4. It would've been nice to see more mutliplayer options and maybe a camera that works like it's supposed to, but it's a quality adventure that should keep you hooked for hours. It's not a major comeback, but it's a step up from the monotony the series has fallen into.
  5. It's a little rough around the edges, and it doesn't break new ground for 3D platformers, but it gives the series the shot in the arm that Wrath of Cortex failed to, and what it does, it does pretty well.
  6. What does garner a lot of attention in this game are the visuals. The graphics are cool and very polished.
  7. A small section of gamers could well find Crash: Twin Sanity not quite offering enough new ideas to please but the majority will probably find this the perfect mix of all that is best with the platforming/action genre, especially the diversity in graphic sets, which must be applauded, along with the mesmerising sound effects and in game animations that move the game along!
  8. Far from fresh or innovative, it's still a fun title to keep the kids happy or blow a rainy day playing.
  9. There's also a nasty glitch I should warn you about, be sure to keep your hands off the controller during cutscenes, or you stand a good chance of coming out of them having just walked off into an enemy or bottomless pit.

    Sure the character combination of Crash and Cortex is different and the humour makes for a welcome change, but aside from that the game is still very familiar and hasn't even evolved nearly as much as it should have.

    While it pains me to say this, maybe Crash should make like the entire cast of "Blossom" and disappear. [Nov 2004, p.146]
  12. It is definitely the best Crash-starring game to come along in a long, long while, but in comparison to today's top platformers Crash Twinsanity can't compete in any way, shape, or form.
  13. 60
    A good platformer buoyed by some interesting gameplay concepts and hindered by certain design flaws.

    Even if you're frustrated by dying on a jump for the 50th time, you'll still think it's funny as hell. [Dec 2004, p.73]

    This game is a lot of fun, but I dislike the limitation of not having a warp room like in other entries of the series. You have to go throughThis game is a lot of fun, but I dislike the limitation of not having a warp room like in other entries of the series. You have to go through the whole game from the beginning to play levels you like. Overall though, this is a crazy adventure and a ton of fun. Full Review »

    Me de uma arma pra matar quem deu nota ruim pra esse jogo, pois ele é ótimo se não perfeito.
    Os gráficos são polidos o suficiente pra fazer
    Me de uma arma pra matar quem deu nota ruim pra esse jogo, pois ele é ótimo se não perfeito.
    Os gráficos são polidos o suficiente pra fazer você acreditar que é um jogo bom pela qualidade gráfica, os sons e trilha sonora são perfeitos, principalmente a última música.
    a gameplay é muito boa e nunca fica enjoativa, certamente você vai zerar algumas vezes

It was very fun playing as Cortex, Nina was a cool character, the villians were unique and fun, and the levels were fun but challenging. But the graphics were rough around the edges. Full Review »
