Crash Bandicoot 4 It’s About Time impressions on Xbox Series X Review

We’ve played Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time on the Xbox X Series, and we’re ready to let you know how the game plays on the new console.

  • Producer: Toys For Bob
  • Publisher: Activision
  • Date of release: October 2, 2020

We all are in love with Crash Bandicoot, just as we do our favorite childhood heroes, Mario the plumber, The Nintendo Mascot, or Sonic the hedgehog, who is anthropomorphic, the world-famous character from the comics, animated series, and the enthralling SEGA game consoles.

The first three installments in the series by Naughty Dog were in the PlayStation domain until 2017, when they released a restored N. Sane Trilogy, loved by both fans alike, who had no idea of the first trilogy.

In October 2020, the fourth chapter in the adventures of the mutant bandicoot came today. It was developed through Toys For Bob, who had previously adapted the remaster to Nintendo consoles and launched a remake of the popular arcade game known as the Spyro Reignited Trilogy.

The fourth game in Toys For Bob not only keeps the excellent design and style of Naughty Dog’s work, the classic universe characters, and classic gameplay but also gives players an array of brand new gameplay mechanics stunning vibrant, vibrant, and animated visuals.

The last time we reviewed our website, we examined Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time in great detail, and the writer also shared her experience playing Crash Bandicoot 4 on PS4. My goal is to tell you how the game behaves on non-XTgen, namely on Xbox Series X.

With the help of upscaling technology (scaling the image to the highest resolution), this version of this platformer features the ability to display a vibrant 4K resolution. I did not see any color or artifacts that may occur if the signal processing process isn’t adequate.

The Crash Bandicoot 4 experience, whether in-game or gaming, has the feel of the native 2160p. The clear, crisp graphics and smooth and fluid animations give the feeling of watching a huge-budget Pixar film on the screen. If I had been told in 1998 that this was how platformers would appear, I’d have been a dedicated console gamer for the past 20 years.

On a scale from 0 to 10, I would put its stability game at 9 1/2. Small fps drawdowns can occur. However, they are only found in specific areas and are very rare, and because of the overall dynamics of the game, these areas can be destroyed in only a couple of seconds. On the initial map, you may mark two or three (or even no, for Pirate Island) locations where there are only two of these locations, but the majority generally, Crash Bandicoot 4, gives a steady 60 fps.

I’m pretty concerned about framerate drop for the Xbox Series X, especially in games with specially optimized graphics, especially in a platformer that is challenging, similar to Crash Bandicoot 4, but I can guarantee you that there’s not been a single incident where instability, not even my fault, led to Bandicoot’s death. The boss fights, of course, are fine as well.

The game has some issues in Quick Resume, an Xbox Series feature that lets you play multiple games simultaneously and then switch between them immediately and, or even start the game exactly where you left it before shutting off the console like it was playing all the time.

If you open the game on your newly “woken awake” Xbox Series X, Crash Bandicoot 4 lacks any sound for a short period; however, the game detects the audio stream, but it’s not always able to find the saved files. In this instance, the game displays a message at the point where the automatic progress saving typically occurs, telling you that the game is unable to save longer.

I’m unsure if the problem is with the game or an issue with consoles (I’ve seen similar topics for other games with X-optimized graphics; however, nothing similar has ever happened to me before). However, here’s a suggestion take a direct route into the menu that opens, type in your username, then press “continue” to ensure that the issue will disappear indefinitely. Otherwise, your overwhelming efforts will be wasted on marsupials as Crash Bandicoot 4 has no manual save option.

You cannot use Crash Bandicoot 4 without a manual save.

The other content of Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time on Xbox Series X is pure joy unless you’re looking to get all the costumes of Crash or Koko. You’ll likely want to purchase an additional gamepad, perhaps one; however that’s a separate story.
