Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time, is not "simply" the sequel and the worthy heir to the Naughty Dog trilogy.

Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time is a wonderful platformer that offers the same wacky but difficult gameplay of its predecessors, but with a modern twist added to them.

Crash Bandicoot 4 is a great challenge and I couldn’t stop playing. It has a ton of variety over quite a lot of levels and the gameplay is genuinely fun. The production values are high and there’s always something to do. It’s a definite improvement on the previous games in the series, despite keeping the same feel. Despite being one of the best games I’ve played recently, I do have one big concern. I could see a lot of people giving up and coming away from this game with a bad impression because of the difficulty. While you can keep trying and trying, many areas are just incredibly difficult and some people won’t be able to pass them. This is not going to be a game for everyone and that's not a bad thing.

With some imperfections, Toys For Bob delivers an enjoyable, goofy, deviously challenging and occasionally genius sequel.

A studied recreation of Crash Bandicoot's halcyon days, that does little to innovate the formula but still offers a fun and varied slice of 90s style platforming.

Mastering Crash's aerial acrobatics is highly rewarding, but the journey to get there is occasionally frustrating
