McElfish felt that the music was "consistently fresh and memorable" and the voice-overs were believable, but the sound effects were bland. Since the game was cancelled very early during development, no more than a few pictures and documents were produced, which cannot be publicly released due to legal issues, and all remaining staff were put to work on The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning. g] The Xbox version was noted to have enhanced fur, lighting and particle effects compared to the PS2 version. The Xbox version was re-released for the Xbox Classics line-up on April 11, 2003, [2] and the GameCube version was re-released for the Player's Choice line-up in Europe on October 22, 2004.

Gallant also criticized the sound mixing, and complained of a "loud, unidentifiable thunking noise" throughout the first vehicle-based level in the GameCube version. It is published by Activision, Sierra Entertainment, Vivendi Universal Games, Konami, Universal Interactive Studios, King, and Sony Computer Entertainment, with entries developed by Polarbit, Toys for Bob, Beenox, Radical Entertainment, Vicarious Visions, Traveller's Tales, Eurocom, King and Naughty Dog. The game's sound effects were created by Ron Horwitz, Tom Jaeger, John Robinson, and Harry Woolway of Universal Sound Studios. Star Dingo described the music as "cool" and "rhythm-happy" and the celebrity voice-overs for the villains as "droll", but said the sound effects were uninspired. A prototype for Crash Twinsanity, it was set to create a new form of gameplay for the Crash Bandicoot series as it would have utilized a large-scale story with gameplay combining platforming and RPG elements.OK, maybe the loading screens are a little long, but with a maximum wait of 20 seconds is that really a valid complaint? The graphics and gameplay are definitely dated compared to modern games, but it still manages to deliver a fun and challenging experience. Casamassina described the music as "well composed and catchy, with enough variation to keep you tapping your feet without realizing it", but criticized the voice-acting, which he felt was overdone and made some of the characters come off as annoying, and lamented the GameCube version's lack of Dolby Pro Logic support.

The game under Cerny's direction was to be a free-roaming title with puzzle elements that would see Crash travelling between different planets. The Xbox version of the game was announced by Universal Interactive on January 31, 2002, and features reduced loading times and improved graphics. With original developers Naughty Dog passing on the chance to produce a PS2 version, Travellers Tales have created this effort, and in terms of gameplay, there's no progression here whatsoever.With the turn transition to the new millennium, Universal Interactive Studios wanted the series to make the transition from the PlayStation to the sixth generation consoles. After Universal fell out with Cerny and Sony, Traveller's Tales was forced to alter the game from a free-roaming title to a standard Crash title.
