Crash of the Titans review

If only his game were as bold as his eyebrows

For

  • Old-school platforming
  • Taking control of monsters
  • Crash's pluck

Against

  • So-so time in mediocre-land
  • Where's the innovation?
  • Where's the fun?

Even though Crash Bandicoot is pretty irrelevant now, his new game looks good - spinning above jungle vistas has a Sonic the Hedgehog level of greenery loveliness, and the game%26rsquo;s calibration screen assures you the game%26rsquo;s %26ldquo;designed to use the full range of colours,%26rdquo; which is worth pointing out, we think. And once you%26rsquo;ve accepted you%26rsquo;re on one, single, long, 10-hour fixed path through Crash%26rsquo;s world, there%26rsquo;s something rather LEGO Star Wars-ish about the fun-size levels, the punch-kicky smashing up of enemy hordes, the scooping up of bazillions of little Mojo jewels left behind by dead enemies. And there%26rsquo;s absolutely nothing wrong with LEGO Star Wars, right?
