Is Crash 4 fun, if I just want to play it casually?

20 posts in this topic

I’ve been wanting to play a fun and colorful game and that is also not too short or, at least, that offers some replayability. Sackboy and Crash 4 are some of the games I’m interested in.

 

I haven’t played the PS4 Crash trilogy, but I did play a bit of the original games on the Vita. Although they were hard and a bit frustrating, they never stopped being fun and addictive, so I always felt the motivation to keep trying and to learn the levels, because getting to the end and seeing what comes next was so interesting.

 

 I know that Crash 4’s platinum is very hard, but getting the platinum is not that important for me. I do want to beat the game, enjoy it and have fun.

 

So, my question is: is Crash 4 still fun and enjoyable, even though, from what I understand it’s harder than the other games in the series or is it just so hard after a while, that even if you don’t care about all the completionist stuff, it just stops being fun and it’s just stressful, annoying and frustrating?

 

Thank you for your opinions! :)👍

I'd say if you just want to finish the game (story), the game is not hard at all and is still a lot of fun. Sure, there are some tricky bits but if you play on "modern", you have infinite lives on each checkpoint. It will take you roughly 6-9 hours depending on your platforming skills.

 

However, I think the best part of the game is actually going for the 106% completion. :) Hopefully you will give it a shot too.

It's so much fun. Fresh new levels and new characters. Even if there was no trophies this game would still be fun.

Without a shadow of a doubt, this is the funnest Crash platformer of the PS4 bunch in my opinion. I do casual speedruns and some of the tech is bonkers silly lol

 

 

 

 

Above are some the neater skips speedrunners use, I get Nitro skip maybe half the time

It’s About Time had the balls to call itself the 4th entry and in its confidence, truly lives up to the number.

Ok, you convinced me! I’ll buy the game, when it gets a little cheaper. I appreciate everyone’s impressions!

I'm finding it way tougher than any of the previous entries yet I keep coming back to it. The classic Crash formula is there but ramped up to 11.

Infuriating at times? Yep. Fun? Also yep.

As the others have said, crash 4 has all the bells and whistles of the old game plus a ton of new stuff that is very enjoyable. I know id never get the plat so I didnt even try but still enjoyed myself. the 2nd last level of the game i died 86 times lol

Since you're looking for a colorful and fun game, allow me to also recommend you New Super Lucky’s Tale and Sackboy.

Maybe you already heard and watch something about these games, but I thought you might be interested in both as well :)

Do these skips still work (I tried them but can't pull them off because I lose the masks)

@FiendEliminator AFAIK, all of these still work but it might be harder to pull these off compared to doing the time trial legit.

My desire to play this game ended up speaking louder than my wish to save money, so I bought it a few days ago, when it was discounted.

 I am going to be honest and say that most of my platinums were easier than just beating this game was. The last three worlds were purely sadistic. Relief is what I felt when I finally completed the last boss level and received the last story-related trophy.

Don’t get me wrong, though. I really liked the game and the boss levels, in particular, were very fun.

Anyway, now, I am going to play the extra levels and clean up the easier trophies.
Beating the game was already a challenge, for me, like I said, but I have the feeling that all the levels can be learned to perfection with a lot of practice and dedication. I just don’t know if I am willing to do that, though. Nevertheless, I think I will go back to the game, in the future.

That's the beauty of CB4.

 

For example, first time you play Cortex Castle, the level is overwhelming and you die a lot. But even with 1 hour of practice, you will see some huge improvements and sections that seemed "totally random" suddenly make sense.

 

Though there are levels like Rush Hour which I couldn't stand. :D

That Off-Balance platforming was phenomenal. Very cool.

the level design I'm really annoyed at is the 2 polar ones, I've spent most of my time on this game in those stages just trying to earn to box gem just for the that stupid bear to miss 1 2x2 box every single time, can anyone give any decent tips on how to actually hit them cause this is making me reach my limit.

From having played the trilogy and achieving the platinum on all, i would say it's fun but also very frustrating, i've heard this ones even harder but if you can have fun go for it, if it makes you rage probably not as you will feel like breaking things 😂

This might be obvious, but I found d-pad to be more precise for these riding sections. I used it for polar as well as the alien.

It Is a fun and well crafted game. If you don’t mind some trial end error, just beating it is not hard and part of the fun. 
 

Completing everything the game has to offer (especially trophy wise) is a totally different thing that requires a lot of patience, dedication and muscle memory.

Honestly I find d-pad a lot worse then I do stick, the d-pad for me steers so much faster that trying to avoid obstacle and hit next 2 sets of 2x2's I miss more often than stick
