Conclusion: Crash Twinsanity is one of the best Crash titles to have been released since its earliest inception on home consoles, and it’s creative use of combining past enemies as partners is what gives Twinsanity a new lease on life. The humor of Jordan Riechek is a welcomed addition to the game and laughs are easy to come by thanks to his writing efforts.
Excerpt: Once dubbed Sony's first mascot, Crash Bandicoot of PlayStation fame made the transition into all-formats territory when the Naughty Dog franchise became wholly owned by French outfit Vivendi. At the time of writing, the idiotic marsupial is fast approaching his tenth birthday, but his platforming shenanigans are far from obsolete. Enter Crash's latest adventure, Twinsanity.
Excerpt: History repeats for platforming heroes. For the foreseeable future, Mario and Bowser will continue trading Princess Peach back and forth, and Sonic and Eggman will continue to squabble over chaos emeralds. It seemed that Crash Bandicoot and Dr. Neo Cortex would remain locked in a similar struggle, but now Traveller's Tales has forced these archenemies to work together in Crash Twinsanity.
Excerpt: Crash Bandicoot was one of the defining titles of the early Playstation era, helping to mould the image of the system. It has come a long way since those early days of linear, scrolling action - the fact that the game is no longer developed by its creators at Naughty Dog but has since been farmed out to Publisher Vivendi Universal and UK developers Traveller's Tales (themselves no strangers to working with outside entities, having developed the Sonic 3D and Sonic R games...
Excerpt: Let me ask you a serious question. Think of any game you've played that had, as part of its storyline, an intense rivalry between a hero and a villain: Cloud and Sephiroth, Solid Snake and Big Boss, Chris Redfield and Albert Wesker, Jak and Daxter (because that little bastard is up to something and we all know it), or whoever else you care to name.

Excerpt: Eigentlich wollte sich Crash Bandicoot auf seiner Heimatinsel von seinen letzten Hüpfabenteuern und den wilden Go-Kart-Fahrten erholen. Doch zum einfach Abhängen bleibt der verdummten Beutelratte keine Zeit. Zwei fiese Zwillinge dursten nach Rache. Um diese zu stillen, sollen Crash und seine Freunde versklavt und die Insel verwüstet werden. Schuld daran ist einmal mehr Bösewicht Dr. Cortex.
Pros: + geniales Duo
+ witzige Sequenzen…
Cons: - …die sich nicht wegklicken lassen
- schlechte Kameraführung
- kleine Programmfehler
Excerpt: Si on aurait pu croire que la série Crash Bandicoot allait dépérir après son abandon par Naughty Dog, le papa de la saga, il n'en fut rien. Vivendi racheta l'affaire et confia les rênes à la société Eurocom puis Traveler's Tales. Ayant pour la peine un peu changé la donne en modifiant légèrement le concept de ce jeu de plates-formes, plusieurs opus assez différents virent le jour et ce Crash Twinsanity en est le dernier exemple en date.
