Destiny 2 can be recommended unreservedly. It's a stomping good time, with or without other players. This is the game we should have gotten three years ago. Here's hoping Bungie follow their own advice next time, and take a bigger leap into the unknown.
From my time with Odyssey, one thing is painfully clear - it is a powerful lesson in what other games lack. Much like Super Mario 64, Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2 and yes, even the unfairly underrated Super Mario Sunshine before it, Super Mario Odyssey is looking to be a complete masterclass in platform gaming.
The game is still highly linear, and the art direction exposes a serious lack of imagination. But for what it's worth, gameplay elements have improved, so I'll definitely give it a shot.
If you want to buy this game, you need to understand what you're getting - this isn't a sprawling RPG or even a particularly lengthy title. It's a six to eight hour trek into the deepest, darkest caverns of the mind.
It's clear that Bungie has really been listening when it came to fan feedback. Destiny 2 opens incredibly strong, with a powerful first mission that absolutely is a thinly-veiled message to those who were disappointed with the first game.
You see, Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy doesn't just represent what was great about the past - it's an opportunity to look to the future as well. Its hard line focus on core gameplay has gotten people talking about the orange mascot again and it's clearer now than ever before that Naughty Dog's classics remain just as relevant as ever.
In this editorial, I'm going to look at the rise and fall of the PlayStation icon known as Crash Bandicoot and how it ties in perfectly with my personal history with the franchise, before examining why everything was set into motion for his return to be a guaranteed success. Let's begin.
Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy is literally around the corner, with only three days to go at time of writing. That means it's time to rank the best Crash Bandicoot boss fights to decide which is the very best!
