Like many retro games, we have fond memories of playing Crash Bandicoot. After 20 years of the game’s release, we look forward to the game being remastered for PS4 in 2017.
The platformer game, with amusing and quirky characters, such as Doctor Neo Cortex and Crash himself, made the game really enjoyable and was fun to play. The colourful and superior graphics made the game really eye catching. This worked well with Crash traversing sequentially through differing environments and worlds. The cartoon like appearance was an aesthetically cool art style, linking the video game world with a style similar to television.
The game was also very challenging, so gamers who wanted a difficult game to beat, finally had something to really concentrate on. It relied on razor sharp timing and incredible precision, which was refreshing and different.
The game play was always solid and struck a great and varied balance to keep players returning to the game.
However, as nostalgia for the game is now so high, many of us remember the game with rose tinted glasses. There were a number of frustrating things in the game. As time’s gone on, we may have forgotten these things and if you have, here is a reminder of those things that may have made you want to throw your controller out of the window!
