Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time for the Xbox One/Xbox Series X & Series S, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 & 5. This game is a direct sequel to Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped.
In this game, the devious villains Dr. Neo Cortex and Dr. Nefarious Tropy have finally escaped their interdimensional prison in the ancient past, resulting in 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 via their newly-developed Rift Generator. Now it’s up to Crash Bandicoot & his little sister, Coco Bandicoot to save the day once again. To do this, they must find four all-powerful masks known as the Quantum Masks. These masks are named Lani-Loli (The Quantum Mask of Space), Akano (The Quantum Mask of Matter), Kupuna-Wa (The Quantum Mask of Time) and Ika-Ika (The Quantum Mask of Gravity).
In this game, Crash & Coco are aided by an alternate-dimension version of Crash’s old girlfriend, Tawna. Crash & Coco are also aided by a couple of old adversaries consisting of Dingodile (a recently-retired villain from the game, Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped) and Dr. Neo Cortex (Due to being betrayed by Dr. Nefarious Tropy).
In conclusion, I found this game to be a multi-dimensional stepping stone of “N. Sane” proportions in the entire Crash Bandicoot franchise.
