Crash Bandicoot 4 Review Roundup: What Critics Think Of The 90s Icon's Return

Reviews have been coming in, and by and large they're heralding Crash Bandicoot 4 as a sharp, fun return for the character and series, which was originally developed by Naughty Dog (Uncharted, The Last of Us).

Game: Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One Developer: Toys For Bob Release date: October 2 Price: $60

I sincerely hope that Activision entrusts Toys for Bob (and Vicarious Visions) with the keys to the Crash kingdom from here on out.

"Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is both respectful of the series that came before it while also giving it the modern update it needed with new gameplay, depth of character, and a beautiful look.

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.

It’s a sequel that’s 20 years late, and to honor that idea, Toys for Bob seems to have made the best-looking HD PlayStation 1 platformer of all time, complete with all the frustrations that gaming has outgrown in the last two decades.
