Crash Bandicoot Games Ranked From Worst To Best

Multiple Blue Rings

Crash was going through a little bit of an identity crisis in 2008. Almost a decade removed from his Playstation-exclusive heydays, Crash dropped his last name and had been operating in a free-roaming world rather than the level-based structure of the initial games. This change had worked well for some platformer series, but Crash adapted to it with middling results.

Crash: Mind over Mutant dragged the series into an almost decade-long hiatus. People loved Crash, but this new guy with hand tattoos and beat-em-up combat had, after only two games, overstayed its welcome.

Mind over Mutant continued the ability to control Titans, but that feature was boring in the previous entry and didn’t get better in this one. It’s a shame to see Crash fall this hard, but it makes his return even sweeter. Crash of the Titans isn’t a total loss, but it’s still an entry that can be skipped.

This was an ambitious attempt by Gearbox to bring the beloved game onto mobile devices. Sadly, what resulted was a disappointing mess. The game provided no challenge to its players and lacked any substantial content for players to want to continue playing. Just for that, Legends places last on our Borderlands games ranked list.

CRASH BANDICOOT: WRATH OF CORTEX

Crash Tag Team Racing is the bandicoot’s third outing on the kart track and his most blatant Mario Kart ripoff. Given Crash’s beginnings as a Playstation exclusive, a Mario Kart clone from Crash and pals made sense on the PS1. But once he had gone multiplatform, the obvious rip-off of Mario and friends’ exploits felt more egregious.

CRASH TAG TEAM RACING

Crash of the Titans was a major overhaul for the series, putting Crash and his friends into a more punk aesthetic, only seven years after the emo music scene was relevant. It always seemed like Crash Bandicoot games were just a little behind on the times.

CRASH OF THE TITANS

The game was always going to have an uphill battle, being the first game to feature Crash that wasn’t created by Naughty Dog. We wish developer Eurocom could have risen to the challenge and created a fun party game to rival Nintendo’s star plumber. What we got instead was a party game with a loose plot lacking all of the fun and humor we’d come to know from the series.
