  • Summary: In Crash of the Titans, players fight a nefarious plot hatched by Crash's arch nemeses Neo and Nina Cortex to mutate the local creatures into titanic abominations. Using Crash's legendary mix of outrageous antics and daredevil bravado, players "hijack" enemies to take control of their actionIn Crash of the Titans, players fight a nefarious plot hatched by Crash's arch nemeses Neo and Nina Cortex to mutate the local creatures into titanic abominations. Using Crash's legendary mix of outrageous antics and daredevil bravado, players "hijack" enemies to take control of their action and use their fearsome powers against all manner of enemies. "Jack to Attack!" – Control, play and battle as 15 enemies, including titanic creatures such as Scorporilla, Ratcicle, Magamadon and Shellephant. While in control of a monster players can throw toxic stink bombs, call lightning down from the sky, fire lasers beams from their eyes or even impale enemies with a massive scorpion tail - use all of the creatures' special abilities to defeat Neo and Nina Cortex. Crash now has a powerful acrobatic fighting system that includes punches and flying kicks, multiple attacks and special counter moves. Players can power-up skills to unlock new attacks and blazing combos. Crash can now interact with his world in totally new ways. Players can wall-run, swing from ropes and flip off springboards – Crash can even toss Aku Aku on the ground to surf, skate, grind and shred. At any point in the game, a second player can join in the fun and play as Carbon-Crash to help unleash total chaos. In a totally innovative twist to co-op action gaming, Crash can even jack Carbon-Crash (or vice versa) for some hysterical Crash "jacked"-Crash mayhem. [Sierra Entertainment] Expand

  1. It is commendable in a way since you know right from the outset that this is a game where you can just play. It is a lot of silly, good natured fun that, while not long in duration, provides a good time.

    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]
  3. It's just above average, as its gameplay features a good dose of fun with clever platforming setups. The combat is a bit on the slow side and throws off the game's pace, but it gets better with time.
  4. It's a fairly sturdy, combat-heavy platformer with a good hook, but it lacks a real distinct attitude.
  5. The game may not win any awards for length, or variety, but the game play it does offer is lots of fun, well acted and presented with a high level of quality.
  6. 65
    A good idea wrapped in a mediocre game.

    Basic stuff, plus some monster riding. Ho hum. [Christmas 2007, p.82]

The game brings new platforming gameplay to the table as well as improving greatly on the combat, making it a large focus. Where it lacks is in boss fights and resemblance to the older titles.
    Overall, it's a great game, especially if you don't posses nostalgic bias.

    Being a Crash fan since the series began, I am glad to say this new incarnation of Crash is excellent. It excels in areas Crash never focusedBeing a Crash fan since the series began, I am glad to say this new incarnation of Crash is excellent. It excels in areas Crash never focused on before. It gives you better combat, more variety, more lively bonus rooms and the new ability to hijack, also known as mind control, large opponents called Titans. There's 15 of these monsters in the game, 3 bosses included, and they each have 3 moves with 1 Mutants who have a secret move not listed and one whose move is acknowledged. The platforming is rare and not very impressive, but the combat and bonus rooms make up for it. The game is somewhat short, around 7 hours. But you have collectibles and a rating on how you do 3 tasks in each level. One is getting a high enough combo. Another is finding 3 hidden spy bots in the level, and the other is defeating a certain amount of enemy fodder the size of Crash. The cast have gained new re-designs. Thir looks have changed to be more modern and edgy and I believe they are improvements to reflect the better gameplay. The personalities are also interesting, but they lack some seriousness and some like Tiny get no boss fight out of story-directed cowardness which is a shame. The game isn't perfect, but it's a great change and refreshing improvement over past titles which, while good and great in their own ways, lacked good combat and other innovations which make this game improve in those ways, admittedly at the loss of some positives from the old games. Hopefully they'll fuse the best of both gameplay types one day. In the end, this is a great title for kids and gamers who want to play something unique, innovative and refreshing. Expand

Cons: Hideous new design, sloppily confused controls and camera angles, and lacks the potential of way better platformers. Expand

Though it's an entertaining game, especially with the monster control mechanics, nothing about Titans manages to stand out. It lacks the creativity and enjoyable wackiness of the older Crash games, and though it manages to turn out alright, it's not a game that I will remember in the future. It is only a very standard example of 3D platforming games. Expand

    It's a disgrace that Naughty Dogs allowed someone to use the name of their beloved mascotte Crash bandicoot for this piece of crap. It'sIt's a disgrace that Naughty Dogs allowed someone to use the name of their beloved mascotte Crash bandicoot for this piece of crap. It's boring, pointless, ugly, and dull. If I see anymore of those blue balls that you're supposed to collect, I will go nuts! The first two Crash games on the PS2 were already bad, but the third and forth so-called Crash games are just incredibly bad. If you loved the great original Crash Bandicoot games on the PS, stay far away from this game! Expand
