So far with Crash of the Titans

This is the game my brother bought with his Christmas money.

This is also a really fun game. You play as Crash Bandicoot (duh!) who has the usual moves. Jump, punch, spin…ect

There are however a few things that make this game special

The Humor:

I have never played a game that has made me laugh so hard (save for monkey island of course) The cutscenes are filled to the brim with jokes, gags, and movie references. Event the gameplay as funny elements such at the odd conversations the minions have before you fight them


By collecting mojo (either by walking into mojo orbs or pointing at them with your wiimote) you unlock cool new combos

“Jacking” enemies:

some of the monsters you fight can be “hijacked.” Basically, an icon appears over them after you have beaten them enough then, you can jump on top of them and control them. There is a nice variety in the monster that can be jacked. Each having their own special skill. (the only disadvantage….they can’t jump!)


At anytime second person can join in. A second crash with lighter fur (called carbon crash) appears and the players progress through the level together. For those tight spots where it is hard to play with 2 players, you can use leapfrog mode. Player 1 sits on Player 2’s back where he stays until player 2 jumps. They then switch places. (It comes in handy, trust me!)


So far with Super Mario Galaxy

Yep, I recently used my Christmas money to buy Super Mario Galaxy!

The game starts of with a prologue about the star festival. (I wont bore you with the details) Then you receive a letter from Peach saying she has a gift for you. (I hope that it is not another cake 😉 ) On the way to the castle, however, disaster strikes. Bowser attacks and kidnaps the princess (didn’t see that one coming) by taking the whole castle into orbit. In the cutscene Mario tries to save her but end up floating through space until he wakes up on a small planet with a weird rabbit.

There is some more story about the Lumas and a girl named Rosalina. (My word! She looks just like peach with a wig!) But you probably don’t care and I don’t want to type it.

Basically the game consists of traveling to different “Galaxies” and exploring the various “Planets”

The controls are pretty easy to grasp. You have to get used to the fact that gravity is weird in this game. (you can walk on walls and stuff) The camera can get a bit annoying at times but don’t let that scare you off. This is overall a great game.

I would definitely suggest it!
