Tropy have finally escaped their interdimensional prison, leaving an evil scientist sized hole in the universe. Now they’ve got their eyes set on not only simply conquering this dimension, but ALL dimensions, and it’s up to Crash and Coco to save the day. N. Sanity Beach is where Crash’s adventure first started, and where it begins in Crash 4. But there have definitely been changes since players first saw N. Sanity Beach all those years ago, and throughout Crash 4 you’ll notice changes to gameplay and even the art style. Expand

    I can’t think of a better platformer released in the past several years. Crash 4: It’s About Time is an absolute must buy and it’s truly about time that Activision returned Crash to his former glory. Hopefully we don’t have to wait another 20 years before we get another sequel.

    Crash Bandicoot once again proves that the platformer genre isn’t dead yet. The featherbrained atmosphere is exactly what one needs during these testing times, even though you’ll sometimes be left frustrated by the uncompromising difficulty.

    Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time is both a successful celebration of the original trilogy of games as well as a worthy follow-up. Toys For Bob has taken the essence of what fans loved about the classics, distilled and bottled it and then shaken up the bottles 'til they explode. Some old issues rear their heads, and there are definitely some dud levels and boss fights, but it's a package so chock-full of content that the good far outweighs the small amount of bad. Anyone hankering for some old-school Crash Bandicoot action will find exactly that and more, and all wrapped up in one of the most gorgeous platformers I've ever seen.

    If you loved the old Crash Bandicoot titles, you'll have a blast with this one. Detailed, challenging levels; recognisable, yet innovative gameplay... this game has it all. The annoying camera may lead to some frustration at times, but don't let that stop you from diving headfirst into Crash' new adventures. It's about time? Damn right!
  6. Toys for Bob has succeeded in creating a game by preserving the spirit of the Crash Bandicoot series. Despite some levels difficulty feels unbalanced, it's a great platform game.

    It’s a shame, then, that some of the level design choices don’t really pair up with the engine Toys for Bob has built this love-letter to 90s platforming games in. Loose and floaty physics, an abundance of different mechanics that often feel part-baked, and some design choices that feel sadistic – rather than simply difficult – leave this approach to Crash Bandicoot feeling less like a true sequel, and more like a licensed spin-off.

    Huge old school classic Crash game with new impovements and good end designs for the characters with new skins for Crash, Coco or Tawna.

    La verdad, digno sucesor de la trilogía original, no como el crash 4 original, ese si que era malo

    The game is really fun and brings back what made crash fun with the original 3 games somewhat frustrating at times with the dark matter spin ability

I am a big fan of the series and this game fits nicely with the others. It's extremely difficult, but that's to be expected. It looks and plays very well too. Fans should be ecstatic to play this one, it really shocked me in the best way possible. I'd say it's a must-buy for any platformer fan. Expand

    I am a fan of the series , i played through 1,2,3 , racing , crash bash multiple times with every possible trophy to achieve and ofcousre iI am a fan of the series , i played through 1,2,3 , racing , crash bash multiple times with every possible trophy to achieve and ofcousre i did same with the remake of nsane trilogy. But this game is too far outdated, games like crash shoud be stamped every year since 2000. Because it is a basic game there is barely any plot, 99% of the game is a fun , sometimes challenging gameplay. Animations basically stayed the same from 90s. This game is not any of that, series is dead. But i am not surprised ,since none of the remakes are made any game better. Developers of this era care only about hyping the product as much as possible , cause it wont sell at all. Poor gameplay , it is just poor. Expand
