Crash of the Titans is an extremely silly platformer when you smash things and collect lots of shiny jewels. There’s no great mystery here, no depth, no riddles, and very few puzzles. The game is up front at least regarding this and how it is there to let players have fun. 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. If you’re looking to kill an afternoon with gaming, this is a solid choice.

Crash of the Titans is a fun, not too complex platformer/beat up the bad guys game with a few flaws, but I enjoyed it. It's probably reasonably safe for older children, if cartoon-style violence is acceptable as well as a little toilet humor. It's not all that long, but it's reasonably fun for what it is. I would recommend it if the price is right and this is the kind of game you are looking for.

All in all, Crash of the Titans is not a bad game. I'd certainly say 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. The stage design isn't bad, and is back to being linear (albeit with various paths), and the visuals certainly make them pop. Despite a few poor choices in aesthetics and annoying voice acting, Crash of the Titans may mark the first step a return to norm for the franchise. Let's just hope we get a proper next-gen game coming our way, seeing as how the Xbox 360 version is practically the same game, running on the same engine, with prettier visuals. I'd recommend Crash of the Titans to fans and newcomers both.

Crash of the Titans is certainly aimed at a younger market. It's bright and colourful, and certainly very easy to get to grips with. The series needed a reinvention and this title has done a solid job of keeping things fresh. Worth a look if you like the little orange marsupial from Down Under.

Ich liebe Jump-n-Runs, ich habe eine bemerkenswerte Schwäche für Blödsinn sowie möglichst alberne Tiere - insofern ist auch Crash of the Titans genau mein Spiel! Allerdings komme auch ich nicht umhin festzustellen, dass es im Grunde nur ein Problem hat, dafür aber auch gleich ein großes: Schon tausend Mal gespielt. Mal abgesehen vom Monsterpatschen, das nach einer kurzen Weile schön flüssig von der Hand geht, bietet das Game nix, was man nicht schon in quasi jedem anderen 3D-Jump-n-Run gesehen und gezockt hat. Das ist per se nichts Schlechtes, Crash macht seine Sache sehr gut, und ich hatte in den letzten Jahren wahrlich schlechtere Hüpfkost im Laufwerk - aber spektakulär ist auch dieses Spiel nicht.

Still, the action grows tired pretty quickly. 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.

The key to enjoying Crash of the Titans is not to take it too seriously. There's the usual nonsense about Neo Cortex taking over the world, but the different animal personalities are so charming, and the self-referential humor so relentlessly silly, that you're unlikely to cry foul too loudly. Crash might be getting on in years for a videogame mascot, and his latest outing falls well short of classic status, but a few disarming new tricks prove he's not over the hill just yet.

Radical has created a reasonably fun experience here that's frothy, intermittently funny, and a breeze to play. The big underlying problem with Crash of the Titans is that you could swap Crash out for any number of other cartoony platforming heroes and not really know the difference. Without much of a distinct style to call its own, it's hard to get too excited.

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. As a single player game it’s ‘okay’, moving up to ‘decent’ if tackled with a friend.

En ikävä kyllä päässyt kokeilemaan käytännössä, mikä on yhtäaikaisen kaksinpelin vaikutus surkuhupaisimpina pitämiini kohtauksiin. Puolen tunnin testin perusteella tila toimii erittäin hyvin ja ansaitsee pelille bonuspisteitä. Fiksuna yksityiskohtana toinen pelaaja voi hypätä toisen reppuselkään, vaikkapa "vaikean" kohtauksen välttääkseen. Pienin varauksin peliä voi suositella pitkän linjan (entisille?) Crash Bandicoot –faneille, jotka etsivät peliä, jota pelata polvenkorkuisen kanssa. Hintakin pyörii valmiiksi alle neljässä kympissä.

Crash of the Titans is a good idea wrapped in a mediocre game. This is a shame too, because that good idea involves smashing small things with large monsters. Nonetheless, kids and die-hard Crash fans will still dig the game, and the co-op is perfect for two squabbling siblings who fight over the controller. It doesn't have the lasting power to make a spot in your collection, but it will make for a good rental. Let's hope that the monster-jacking idea is used better in a sequel someday.

Radical Entertainment has made an effort in trying to freshen the Crash Bandicoot formula, but in spite of this, Crash of the Titans still comes across as a straightforward platformer. There is not much in the way of new ideas on offer, and those ideas that are new, like cooperative play, feel like last minute additions. Crash of the Titans offers up some fun platforming action - so long as one does not expect anything out of the ordinary and is not after a long lasting experience, this game should have what they are looking for.

Overall, this game is exactly what it sounds like, namely, a fairly generic and straightforward linear 3D platformer. That is not all bad, but this game does not stretch the boundaries of 3D platformers at all or even reach the edges already set. Still, if you are dying to have a new 3D platformer for your DS, this game may be enough to suit your fancy for a few hours.
