Conclusion: I've been a fan of Crash on all platforms in the past and bought Twinsanity as soon as it was released thinking it would be more of the same only with better graphics and sound. How wrong I was! They have completely messed up with more or less everything what made the past Crash's great. 1: The camera is terrible for a start! You can walk around and the camera won't follow you so your forever moving the right stick to control it..
Conclusion: Crash Twinsanity is the newest installment of the Crash Bandicoot series and this time surprisingly takes a dramatic turn for the better. Players will immediately be surprised at how much the game has improved overall in all areas. So far the story right now from my 2 hours of game time is what follows. (MINOR SPOILERS) We begin from starting off from the last game with CXortex floating in a block of ice and floats ashore Nsanity island.
Summary: I got this game to play on my 360, as the 360 itself has disappointingly few platform games of its own. Be warned, this game is fun, the graphics are great, the gameplay is good, music is ok (though I agree how some can find it annoying) HOWEVER as others have said, it can be difficult. You can play through a level, hit a checkpoint, almost make it to the save-point but then run out of lives, and end up at the start of the level again.
Summary: Great Bandicoot fun but quite a lot tougher than Crash Bandicoot - the wrath of Cortex! Kids are starting to feel a bit defeated by it as struggling to get beyond the second level. Enjoying the Crash/Dr Cortex power struggle element though. Perhaps it will get easier with practice....
Summary: I've not played any Crash games since the days of the SNES, so I had no preconceptions of what I would be in for. I'd bought this because my girlfriend was tired of me playing nasty games full of blood and guts, and didn't expect to enjoy it at all. I was so wrong. The gameplay is sometimes irritating with its reliance on savepoints, but the plot and humour kept me interested.
Summary: The platform world is a strange one indeed. Personally I think they represent all that is bad about the games industry. While the graphics may have improved, every platformed I've seen in the last 5 years seems to have been a clone of the others. This unfortunately is no different.
Summary: It is the best platform game on the x-box right now.... but that doesn't make it a great game. The camera is poor, and the levels are confusing... too much graphical flair. BUT, and it is a big butt (see Sir Mixalot), it's an enjoyable romp that will keep you vaguley entertained. So, if you want a great platform game on x-box, wait. If you want decent platform game, buy this.
