Step into the vibrant, team-based world of Crash Team Rumble. An unexpected addition to Crash Bandicoot’s universe that offers a colorful, strategy-filled multiplayer ride.
Didn’t expect a multiplayer game following Crash Bandicoot’s triumphant return with “It’s About Time” in 2020? Neither did we. However, the unexpected is not always unwelcome. Welcome to Crash Team Rumble, a four-on-four team game that feels more like a MOBA than a new Crash Bash. Yet, it can offer you a good time, especially with a group of your best pals.
The game offers a pretty clear-cut path: gather Wumpa Fruit from the map and deliver it to your home base, while dodging a rival team. But don’t think it’s all smooth sailing. There are relics to gather for power-ups and gem platforms to defend. Sounds complicated? On the contrary, the game prides itself on its simplicity and approachability.
Stepping into the game, you’ll be immersed in vibrant, rich environments, inspired by the series’ iconic levels. From picturesque beaches to menacing lairs, you’ll experience a delightful mix. Interestingly, the distinct power-ups available on each map add an extra layer of depth and strategy to the gameplay.
The real strategy of the game lies in balancing attack and defense while utilizing power-ups wisely. The team dynamics also play a significant role in determining a match’s outcome. Balance is the name of the game, a squad solely composed of Crash Bandicoots might not fare well against a well-diversified opponent team.
This game can be exhilarating, especially during intense, neck-and-neck matches where effective team collaboration and strategy come into play. There’s something truly satisfying about a last-second win or avenging a pesky rival.
While the charm and enjoyment of Crash Team Rumble are undeniable, its longevity is still up for debate. With a limited number of characters and maps, and a somewhat uninspiring progression system, the game might struggle to retain players. However, the gameplay mechanics are robust, and post-launch support is promised, which might keep things exciting.
In summary, Crash Team Rumble is a straightforward, yet delightful multiplayer offering. It’s an accessible game that even those unfamiliar with the Bandicoot universe can enjoy. Though the game may lack the depth to make you lose track of time, it doesn’t aim to. It’s content with providing you and your friends a fun-filled game night.
