About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Developed by Traveller's Tales, the new action platformer reveals a hilarious storyline that showcases the creative input of award-winning animation filmmaker Jordan Reichek of Perky Pickle Studios and introduces innovative features, including the ingenious pairing of Crash with his longtime nemesis Dr. Cortex in an unprecedented new dual gameplay mechanic.

"By combining the classic humor and wacky situations that Crash is known for with a new twist of inventive gameplay, Crash Twinsanity delivers the most robust and funniest Crash platformer ever," said Philip O'Neil, President of North America, Vivendi Universal Games. "The gameplay and story line in Crash Twinsanity truly raise the bar for this world renowned, character-based franchise."

In Crash Twinsanity, a new evil has invaded the island paradise of Crash Bandicoot with plans of destruction. In a strange twist, Crash begrudgingly pairs with his archenemy, Dr. Cortex, in order to save the world. Through this unorthodox partnership, Cortex is abused as Crash's favorite weapon when Crash and Cortex are controlled as one. Additionally, this dynamic paired gameplay features never-before-seen mechanics which also include cooperative level designs in which Crash must protect Cortex and vice-versa, albeit reluctantly! They're working together ... but they don't have to like it!

Gamers can choose from a wacky cast of four playable characters - Crash, Cortex, Nina Cortex (Cortex's niece) and the brand new pairing of Crash and Cortex. The game features completely immersive free-roaming environments which respond realistically as the player interacts with them, along with streaming worlds that can be played through without load times. Players will also encounter complex and highly reactive enemies that will detect and hunt Crash, run away when outgunned and interact with other foes to form alliances.

The Crash Bandicoot franchise made its debut in 1996 and has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide.*

Crash Twinsanity is currently available in North America on PlayStation 2 and Xbox for a suggested retail price of $49.99, with an ESRB "E" rating. For more information, customers can visit
