    If you've had the hankering for platformers as of late, like I have, this set is an absolute no brainer. For $39.99 you get three of the best platformers ever made, and they're completely remade for the current gen… you can’t get a much better value than that.

    Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is a delightful revisit with some of the best platform games from the nineties.
  3. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, sure keeps the core mechanics of the first three games and adds fancy graphics with intense remastered soundtracks. Gameplay might be problematic at first newcomers, but sure in no time, it can be mastered.

    While the N. Sane Trilogy is by no means the perfect and/or flawless remaster fans and interested onlookers may have wanted, there's no denying that a lot of Vicarious' microscopic and macroscopic attention to detail alike is demonstrated sufficiently well in Crash's current-gen revisit.

    The remastered versions now look like interactive animated movies, with familiar levels recreated in a completely new engine with real-time lighting, new models and animations, visual effects and re-recorded sounds. But still, keep in mind that classic Crash games were a product of their era, so if you played this trilogy on PS1 back in the 90s when you were a kid, you won't get that the same feeling again.

    It would be easy to dismiss Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy as a nostalgia play, but it's quite a bit more than that. This collection celebrates a franchise that was once a hallmark of a bygone console, and that hasn't been relevant for quite some time. Vicarious Visions has done a fantastic job recreating everything that made Crash Bandicoot such an appealing series, and it's done it with style and improvements that only this latest generation could provide. Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy isn't for the impatient player, but it's a rewarding experience for anyone with the guts to get a little wild.

    It's easy to imagine how a dyed-in-the-wool Crash fan will fall in love all over again via the N. Sane Trilogy, but if you're experiencing Crash for the first time--or the first time in a while--it might pain you to realize that Crash's original adventures aren't as inventive or surprising as they were 20 years ago.

    Does Crash Bandicoot hold up today against the plethora of modern gaming conventions and genres? No. It's simplistic style and gameplay tropesDoes Crash Bandicoot hold up today against the plethora of modern gaming conventions and genres? No. It's simplistic style and gameplay tropes harken back to a time before one had to spend hours and hours grinding levels or finding ranked online matches. The Crash Bandicoot games were designed to be fun. To be challenging, yet accessible. To be the crowning achievement in the "Platforming" genre.

    Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy stands as one of the best remasters ever brought into existence. It has it's flaws, sure, but these pale in comparison to the overall fun-factor. Anyone who gives this game below a 7 in their review is either too old to have ever played it in their childhood, or too young to fully appreciate what this pants-wearing marsupial did for the video game industry.

    TL;DR

    This game great. You buy now.

After waiting for months, this does the wait justice. Its almost exactly the same, everything that made the game great and caused the ear to ear smiles to the controller gripping frustration when you missed that ledge by a millimetre. Its a remaster done to perfection. This was a game that demanded precision, and they've kept that, they've kept what made crash... crash.. If you were a fan of the original, do yourself a favour and get it. You wont be disappointed! Expand

Sane Trilogy is a collection of really fun platformers that are not afraid to challenge new gamers. Many of the levels can be difficult to master, meaning practice and perfect timing are key to your success. The first game is the most basic yet most challenging. You only have a single jump and spin attack, making it more difficult to cross platforming gaps and defeat enemies. This game focuses purely on platforming, with a variety of 3D linear and side scrolling levels. Crash 2 and especially 3 have more driving/flying/swimming levels that focus less on platforming and more on movement. You also have a slide mechanic, and in Crash 3 you earn a double jump and other features that make the games easier than the first. The graphics, sound effects, and music overall are really great. They are pretty faithful to the originals and create a really great atmosphere when playing the games. The main issues come from the outdated controls. Since these games are remakes, the controls are much like the original games. Platforming can be clunky sometimes making it hard to see where you are jumping. But overall the games are a lot of fun, and I would recommend them to anyone who likes platformers. Expand
