    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.

    Honestly this is a 9 but it gets a ten just to block out a couple of these idiots who don't know what they are doing with the game hell oneHonestly this is a 9 but it gets a ten just to block out a couple of these idiots who don't know what they are doing with the game hell one retard actually gave it a 0 because some people like it enough that they gave it a 10 boo **** hoo go cry if someone's else's joy upsets you you must really be a **** of a person. Anyway the game itself is great and worth your time as it is some fun platforming and actually doesn't hold your hand when it comes to the tricky stuff ( come to think of that might be why the low scored reviews are here because they can't play it if their life's depended on it) and it is just beautiful to look at. Just go buy this game and if you don't like it don't get triggered of the fact that some people do. Expand

    Qué buen remake, tiene el mismo control y movilidad de los 3 primeros Crash de PS1 que es lo que muchos queríamos que dejaran intacto, enQué buen remake, tiene el mismo control y movilidad de los 3 primeros Crash de PS1 que es lo que muchos queríamos que dejaran intacto, en cuanto a los gráficos están buenísimos, no es solo un aumento de resolución y texturas, el apartado gráfico tuvo un gran trabajo pues se hizo desde cero pero sin modificar la geometría y medidas de los Crash originales.
    El sonido también está actualizado tanto la música como las voces, las he escuchado en inglés y español y ambos doblajes se adaptan muy bien con todo el entorno.
    El juego sigue estando igual de divertido que los originales, y aun tiene extras, por ejemplo: Jugar con Coco, y ahora los 3 Crash tienen reto de relquias y sistema de autoguardado.

    If you were wondering if this game holds up 20 years later in an era of dual movement controls and 20 action buttons don't - it does and inIf you were wondering if this game holds up 20 years later in an era of dual movement controls and 20 action buttons don't - it does and in spades!

    With just 3 buttons - move, jump, spin this game will keep you hooked with its beautiful classic soundtrack, rich visuals that do your rosy-tinted memories justice - and most importantly present a real challenge.

    People are complaining about the difficulty - that's the point - I spent 2 hours trying to get past two levels on the original and it was gloriously frustrating - a real sense of achievement on completion that modern games lack. I see my nephews and nieces giving up the second they get stuck on a level more then twice - I died over 50 times just to move on - credit to the creators for not diluting the experience!

    One request - bring back CTR - Crash Team Racing is the finest kart racer (sorry mario fans) and had amazing replay value. After that - let's see some real Crash games for 2017 including updated Kart Racer and Platformer!!! Thanks for doing this Vicarious Visions!

Does this hold the nostalgic feelings we deserve or does it leave us frustrated with no end to be seeing? let's find out.

    Crash Bandicoot is a wonderful platformer that took me back to the days of Mario, Donkey Kong & Mega Man. Your evil nemeses in these games, of course, is Doctor Neo Cortex who is trying to get all the power crystals, so each level you go through in the second & third game collecting those power crystals is a must, other than that getting from the beginning of the level to the end is the main goal, and defeating enemies by jumping on them or spin attacking them is just awesome. That is only the tip of the ice berg when it comes to these games collecting apples to get enough for extra lives, destroying all the boxes for an extra gem at the end of the levels.
    Let's talk about the levels, some of the levels in this game are absolutely gorgeous when it comes to the new design and updated graphics, with that being said some of the levels are so difficult in parts it will make your turn gray if you are in your twenties like me, some of these levels would take me up to forty-five minutes to beat but none the less I had a great time with them and the game took me less than a week to beat which is great, because I never got bored I was being challenged but not to the point where I wanted to give up. I found as the games went along though they were getting easier, I don't know if that is because I was getting accustomed to the challenge or if they were made intentionally to be easier.

    The N Sane trilogy may have been beaten but it will not soon be forgotten it is everything I needed in a game right now, it may have been frustrating at certain points but I had fun every step of the way.

    si voy a jugar un crash que sea en la switch, así de simple, ya que es más cómodo y la gráfica es la misma.
