Excerpt: Over recent years, the cutesy creature genre (which is to say of the platformer variety) has largely become more grounded and more shooty. Ratchet and Clank, Jak, as well as Spyro’s newest are just a few examples of this. Yes, leaping around with seemingly all the joys of spring is dying out and Crash Bandicoot’s newest game, Crash of The Titans proves that the genre is continuing to erode.
Conclusion: It’s come up before and it’ll come up again, but multiplayer is generally the real test of a sports game, because it is affected less by AI foibles and comes down to true competition and skill. NHL 2K10 does offer a lot of flexibility for the online-gaming component. Not only can you do the leagues and gameplay over an online connection, but some of the menus offer the option to search out anyone on your Friend List who might be playing at the same time.
Excerpt: is a flawed sequel. It doesn’t elevate the franchise in the way you may have hoped or expected, nor does it present a package that you haven’t already seen and played a year ago. But don’t skate away just yet – while this might not be the must-have sports game of the season, it is anything but unplayable.
Conclusion: The thing is, the times where you are able to walk through reasonably simply are fun. Not great fun, but good unremarkable fun – the kind of game that a reviewer might recommend as a good Christmas stocking filler, or something. For the most part, though, Crash of the Titans isn’t fun; it’s frustrating as all get-out, which really just leaves it as “unremarkable”.
Conclusion: No more famous wooden boxes anymore but new features such as Mojo Challenges and changing clothes to have powers of creatures, makes its fun to play. Can be played co-operatively but not online. There's not much more to say about it because there's not much new features which makes it so familiar to the previous games to it
Conclusion: I thought Crash of the Titans was an overall enjoyable game. It gets a bit tedious down the stretch because each episode is so very similar to the previous one, but the campaign ends just as the adventure wears out its welcome. Crash of the Titans also sports some very smooth and colorful animations, too, and the sound guys did a fine job.
Conclusion: This game is one of those that will give you a lot more fun then you could have hoped for, while at the same time not being quite as good as you would like. It’s a good effort but far too short and not nearly nice enough to look at, plus a bit more of a challenge wouldn’t have gone amiss either. It’s nice to see Crash back on form but he’s still a long way behind his illustrious peers.
