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.

Als ich die schrill-bunte Verpackung von Crash of the Titans sah dachte ich mir noch „Ach, mal wieder so ein mäßiges Jump and Run-Game“. Aber der Titel ist alles andere als mäßig. Zwar erfindet er das Genre nicht neu und setzt auch sonst mehr auf Bewährtes als auf Innovatives, doch Crashs-Abenteuer macht mächtig Spaß und vor allem süchtig. Das mag an den lustigen Momenten liegen, die es in dem Spiel zu Haufe gibt oder einfach an der kurzweiligen Präsentation des Titels. Hinzu kommen eine schön gemachte Grafik und der spaßige Monster-Wechsel-dich-Bonus.

Crash of the Titans wirkt auf den ersten Blick recht unauffällig. Es ist ein nettes Jump and Run, welches nicht gerade viel Innovation versprüht, den Spieler auf seine Art jedoch durchaus gut unterhält. Zwar vermisst man mit der Zeit die Abwechslung, aber durch die recht knappe Spielzeit von 6 Stunden, wird das Spiel nie langweilig. Die Steuerung funktioniert sehr präzise und die Wii Funktionen wurden genau dort eingesetzt, wo sie Sinn machen. Anders verhält es sich mit den Hüpfeinlagen, die ruhig ein wenig anspruchsvoller sein dürften, denn einzig die bockige Kamera macht einem das Leben wirklich schwer. Wir möchten Crash of the Titans trotzdem jedem Fan des Genres und der Crash Bandicoot Reihe ans Herz legen, denn auch wenn es wenig Neues gibt, ist das Altbewehrte noch immer gut genug, für einen unterhaltsamen Ausflug ins „Crashuniversum“. Einsteiger und Gelegenheitsspieler werden ebenfalls gut bedient.

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.

If you are a huge Crash fan then I would still tell you to just wait it out a little longer until the price drops so you don’t feel like you foolishly spent your money on a newer version of a game you already played. Sadly, Crash of the Titans is just more of the same in a new wrapper.

Still, it is a pleasure to find that while lacking in any real finesse, Titans does feel like a proper Crash Bandicoot title. It is likely to be eclipsed by the attention Mario Galaxy attracts, but if you are after something more accessible, or just long to revisit the unofficial mascot of the first PlayStation, there are far less enjoyable Wii titles out there than Crash of the Titans.

Not a ground-breaking title, and unfortunately even the initially cool mechanic of ‘jacking’ your bigger enemies begins to pale after a while. Despite this it’s a pretty fun game to play and the gradual introduction of the titans as the game progresses keeps you interested to see what cool abilities the next one is going to have. Younger children will also find it pretty easy to pick up, with the characters and scenarios appealing to them.

Crash of the Titans is a satisfying platform brawler that should easily please younger gamers while providing enough action and humor to keep older gamers interested. Experienced gamers will be able to whip through the game’s single player mode in 8-10 hours. There’s a two-player co-op mode too, but it doesn’t add too much to the experience, though it might be fun to play with a younger friend or relative for an hour or two. Crash definitely comes out of the paradigm of last-gen game design, but it takes ideas from the best games and implements them in a unique way that freshens up the formula in some small but satisfying ways. It won’t hold your attention for too long, and once you’re done with the game you probably won’t have much incentive to revisit it. For what it is, though, Crash of the Titans is a solid and amusing take on a familiar genre of games that should be at least basically entertaining for most fans.

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.

GameDaily
Crash of the Titans isn't a lousy platformer, not by any means. With its likable presentation, jacking gameplay and decent amount of extras (including a buddy-friendly co-op mode), gamers will enjoy it for what it is. With that said, it does little to stand out, and succumbs to the industry's higher profile adventure games.

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.

Graphics are fun, bright, and colorful. The game is chock full of humor thanks to the funny lines from the voice cast. Evil minions who haven't spotted you yet will carry on funny conversations if you listen to them. Play control is responsive, even the Wii specific moves with the remote work well. Best of all, a second player can join in at any time as a carbon copy of Crash for double the fun. Crash of the Titans is definitely one of the better Crash titles.

This is a decent game that could have used a bit more innovation to really make this game top notch and stand out from all of the other platform games already available on this system. This is a great rental but nothing more as you will beat it in no time.

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. Those looking for nothing more than an afternoon riding around on giant beasts and generally smashing anything they come across will have a good time with Crash of the Titans.

IGN
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.

The Wiire
Crash Bandicoot fans will likely appreciate what Crash of the Titans does for the series as far as gameplay and canon progression (and Crash's new character design) are concerned. People who simply yearn for a solid platforming adventure and have 10-15 hours to spare should certainly give this game some consideration. Those who dislike linear gameplay, lots of color and cartoon-like characters, however, should think about jacking elsewhere.

Game Freaks 365
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.
