Like its predecessors, Crash Bandicoot 4 is a pretty hard game. It employs a very old-school approach to challenge in a platforming game, putting the focus squarely on tests of skill through levels that grow increasingly complex. As such, there’s quite a few levels in this game that will put up a formidable fight against you- here, we’re going to talk about the fifteen that we felt were the hardest of them all.
NOTE: There are spoilers ahead for Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time.

As the level that introduces players to the Mosquito Marsh mansion, it’s one that stands out in memory (thanks in large part to its carnival feel), but it also stands out because of how challenging it can be. True to its name, it uses music in some interesting ways for platforming, and is almost entirely focused on putting your platforming skills to the test. Towards the end, there’s also a rail-grinding section that requires some quick reaction time, so make sure you stay on your toes.
