Crash Bandicoot is back in an all-new adventure that involves saving his island from the diabolical duo of Neo and Nina Cortex. The omnipotent ones have transformed the region's animals into hulking mutants in a mad bid to gain control over the region. Though Crash has been in relaxation mode for quite some time, he hasn't let his acrobatic skills atrophy. He's even acquired a few new moves to tip the scales in his favor. The wonder-from-down-under can now engage in frenzied fisticuffs, using combinations of flying kicks, flurrying punches, and dizzying spins to subdue his foes.
Crash can also ride atop mutant animals, up to 15 in total, after weakening them in combat. This "jacking" mechanic allows players to use each creature's powerful attributes and attacks to help clear the way of other enemies. The world in Crash Bandicoot has changed as well, offering more interactivity than in previous games. Players can swing from ropes, jump off springboards, and even skate or surf on the back of Aku Aku. Crash of the Titans also includes cooperative play at any point during the adventure. Friends control character Carbon-Crash, who can perform special team-up moves with Crash to defeat powerful creatures.
