    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.

    Crash Twinsanity is my main childhood memory, & when I went back to it years later, I found that opinions of the game had not changed at all,Crash Twinsanity is my main childhood memory, & when I went back to it years later, I found that opinions of the game had not changed at all, in fact, I loved it even more.
    The main thing that really impressed me is that every single level in the game felt perfect, especially my favourite two levels, Classroom Chaos & Ant Agony, Classroom Chaos is complete chaos as the title suggests, whereas Ant Agony is an incredibly long, platform heavy blast through the evil twins lair, it was always my favourite when I was a child.
    Another thing I really love is the way you travel to 4 completely different locations throughout the course of the game, you go to Crash's island, Cortex's ice base, Nina's school, & the evil twins dimension, otherwise known as the 10th dimension, the 10th dimention is my favourite part of this game.
    The soundtrack is the best the series has seen so far, it's absolutely brilliant, fast & exciting.
    The story is also simple & fun, but can be a bit inconsistent, although I'm sure whether that's the story or the inclusion of welcome but unnecessary characters, but one of my favourite things about this game is the humour, Cortex is absolutly hilarious in this game, which is great, but my favourite thing about the game is how you can play as three different characters, Crash, Cortex, & Nina, & they all work perfectly, I admit I've had some irritating issues with Nina's section of the final boss, but she's still great & I hope she is playable again, when we eventually get another crash game, seriously it's been 4 years since the last Crash Bandicoot game, so if any video game developer from Sony, Microsoft or Nintendo, or all you third-party companies, we miss Crash Bandicoot, & my needs will not be complete until we get another Crash Bandicoot game, just don't make it like Crash of the Titans or Mind over Mutant, Thank you!

    Crash TwinSainity is an unfinished masterpiece that sadly suffered and had so much potential. It’s presentation is top notch having many greatCrash TwinSainity is an unfinished masterpiece that sadly suffered and had so much potential. It’s presentation is top notch having many great levels and almost fantastical bosses. The story with the added humor of crash and cortex is suburb, the story however is weird as always it’s a crash bandicoot game. The soundtrack is a magnificent masterpiece every track is great to listen to especially the boss music. Sadly the game falls short as you begin to notice a lot of glitches bugs and sometimes instant crashes. Also games look got get worse as you go, plus the game is short like 4 hours short. However it’s not the team to blame for the issues but the owners of the crash series licenses at the time Universal. Universal demanded the game to be launched so the world could have another crash bandicoot every year and they failed to bring it its full potential. Crash TwinSanity is a lesson to gaming company’s that when you have an amazing idea you should keep going until you complete it to its full potential. And not rush it like how universal did, at the end Crash TwinSainty is an amazing 3D platformer that sadly messed it’s mark due to the sometimes noticeable rushed assets of the game, however every gamer should at least give it a try! (Good 3/5) *Give It A Try!* Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Wrath of Cortex started an era of Crash Bandicoot that everyone wants to forget. Every Crash game after Wrath of Cortex was either mediocre, or just atrocious. But this game is pretty good. Twinsanity is a very, very unique Crash game, as in this one, you team up with Cortex. You see, the villains are different this time. They're parakeets. What the hell. The soundtrack in this game is arguably one of the best in the series, the graphics aren't perfect, but they're good for 2004, (Anything beats Wrath of Cortex, that's for sure) And the glitches... you won't run into any on your first play through, but it's not hard to break this game. This game's bosses suck. Most of the time, they're piss easy. Some are pretty fun, like Dingodile, but most of the time, they're easy as hell. Overall, this game is a good game. I kind of enjoyed it more than Crash 1 and 2, so that's saying something. Expand

    Crash Twinsanity is short of Jak and Ratchet's kind of fun, but it's still an exhilarating effort. Pros: Lots of whacky gameplay, colorfulCrash Twinsanity is short of Jak and Ratchet's kind of fun, but it's still an exhilarating effort. Pros: Lots of whacky gameplay, colorful visuals, hilarious characters and dialog, and unlike Wrath of Cortex, the old school platforming is kind of unique in this case. Cons: Once you get to the middle of the game, you realize how effortlessly produced the game is, as if it were rushed. Expand
