    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.

I am shocked to read a few wingeing about controls and so on as there is no issues with its response unless you have a tv with terrible lag input. There is so much enjoyment to be had with these games not to mention if you grew up like me playing them for hours upon end its a great feeling if nostalgia. Expand

    Words can not express how happy i am too witness Crash's first three adventures, from 20 years ago, remastered in full glory! Crash BandicootWords can not express how happy i am too witness Crash's first three adventures, from 20 years ago, remastered in full glory! Crash Bandicoot not only stunned me with its visuals, but how you control him has vastly improved as well. It makes to chuckle a bit since game radar made that review saying that crash turned in the the "Dark Souls of platformers." It makes me wonder if the guys ever played the original crash on PS1 since it was infuriating. Nevertheless, It was still a great adventure all around. Crash Bandicoot 2 Cortex Strikes back, and Crash Bandicoot 3 Warped were the games i was most excited for since those two in particular were my favorite crash games period. All they needed to do was make the games look and sound better since they were already great back in the day; and man did they improve them. It's like revisiting my favorite games as a 6 year old child again! The soundtrack in Crash 2 always catches me and "Tell No Tales" in Crash Warped will always be the prettiest level for me to look at period! There is a lot of goodies all around in this trilogy of games. There are issues with some of the games such as difficulty spikes in crash 1, annoying backtracking issues in crash 2, and finecky vehicle controls in crash warped to name a few. But because of the added time trials in the first two games for replay-ability, the ability to play as coco in the game, the soundtrack, visuals, animations, all of these things just eradicate all of the negatives put in to this game. Let me say the cinematic cuts scenes as well remind me of watching a dark, but lighthearted Saturday morning cartoon. They are so fun to watch. At $40 at launch, there's no doubt you will get your money's worth right here people. New coming Crash fans that have never played this series will get a kick out of this while nostalgic players will relive their classic adventures. Expand

    The game is great. Really great.
    it's built to resemble as much as possible the original trilogy in every aspect, with the addition of some nice bonuses.
    The graphic is stunning, the remastered soundtrack brings back a ton of memories.

    You'll find here people who say:
    - "but its too difficult!!!1!1!"......Those people obviously don't know that Crash (especially the first episode) is widely appreciated for being a really difficult and challenging game....so what's the problem if is difficult? That's exactly how it should be.
    - "but its only 30 fps!!!1!1!".....again, i'm playing the game since release day, and dear God, Who cares if its 30fps. Goddammit, the game is 100% enjoyable. Its not one of those games that needs 60 fps to work properly. It was meant to have 30fps at the beginning and its working perfectly with 30 fps now, so please. Learn to enjoy a game

They fixed most things that needed to be fixed and the updated graphics and music is really great. There were some problems here and there, like with the loading times and a few other minor things, but the good most defiantly outweighs the bad. This has a remake of my most favorite game and two already great games on it. I now have hope for Crash Bandicoot's future! Expand

    Crash into every f*cking hole: Downgraded & Demastered Trilogy

    Enjoy the most broken hitboxes of all th time. Even worse then it was when "Rainbow Sh*t: Cheats" came out.
    Enjoy surgical precision, you must have to get somewhere or to kill your enemies.
    You'll never know if it don't kill you standing 1 meter away. Jump on that turtle, yes nice, but you're dead, you were too close. Next time. Yes now it's good, but you've jumped too far, sorry, you're dead, the turtle just turned around and touched you. Enjoy sliping to almost every f*cking hole, like the whole floor is full of oil.

    Enjoy stiff controls and late button reaction which feels like playing online FPS with high ping, where you get hit, when you're not even f*cking there and you know, you was pushing that button like maniac. Let's play a race, where you have to be surgical precise (like before) to win that crap.
    This downgraded demaster is missing microtransaction, where you would buy lives, speed boost for
    races and umbakarnas.
    The only good thing is, that you have 3 games together and you don't have to waste any more money.

    Just get emulated PSP and play the original Crash Bandicoot and you'll see the difference, just like I did.
