Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time review
by NeedleNose1

This is definitively The Greatest Crash Bandicoot Game Ever Made ™.

I say this as someone whose first video game series was Crash and believed that we’d never see a Crash game as good as Naughty Dog’s again. Crash 4 takes the best elements of the original 3 platformers (including many excellent aspects of Crash 1 that were abandoned even by Naughty Dog) and builds on top of them.

The art style is striking and brilliant. The animation is full of personality consistent with and surpassing the originals, and each level is beautifully detailed. Extra playable characters are a wonderful addition and totally keep in line with the feel of the rest of the game.

Mandatory parts of the game are a solid challenge, but the bonus stages and optional content are on another level. These segments will push your Crash platforming ability to the limits and are immensely satisfying to complete.

This is a beautiful game full of personality and excellent content. It’s clear that the developers loved what they were making and I love it too.
