Video Game: Crash of the Titans

Crash Of The Titans is a beat em up platformer hybrid, developed by Creator/Radical Entertainment, as part of the Crash Bandicoot series, released for the PlayStation 2, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii.

The game was the first of a light reboot of the series, with massive aesthetic and gameplay changes (in particular many characters have been redesigned or altered).

The game's story centers on the discovery of a substance known as "Mojo", which Doctor Neo Cortex, plans to use to turn the inhabitants of the Wumpa Islands into an army of loyal mutants known as "Titans". Crash must stop Cortex by using the technique of "jacking" to take control of and destroy Cortex's Titans while collecting the mojo.

Portable versions of the game were also made for the Nintendo DS and Game Boy Advance. They largely copy the same gameplay style as the main version, though have some deviations.

This game contains examples of:

  • Big Brother Instinct: Crash is adamant to save his sister Coco. Uka Uka even gets a cheap shot from this, threatening to off her the moment she's no longer a use to him. You rarely ever get the resulting look from Crash.
  • Darker and Edgier: Compared to Radical's previous instalment anyway, with a more climatic story and the menacing Titans.
  • The Starscream: Nina overthrows her uncle as Uka Uka's Dragon. He was very proud.
