    Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy can be compared to a good, old Chardonnay. It gives players the ability to enjoy an excellent remaster of three classic platformers and the adventures of an iconic character in one, single package. This is a collection that all Switch owners should be looking forward to.

    If you don’t mind the lower resolution and slightly less crisp visuals, then the Switch version is incredibly easy to recommend, especially as it gains portability. It’s a cracking port of one of the best remasters around. It's odd to say, but it almost feels like this should be Crash's new home.

    A year after releasing on PlayStation 4, Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy is now on Nintendo Switch as a solid adaptation that compensates for a slight graphic downgrade with portability.

    Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy is undoubtedly one of the most successful collections of all time. The Switch version has the same contents we saw on PS4 a year ago, but it comes with some technical flaws that are hard to explain, even with the less horsepower of the Nintendo's console.

    Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is a loving remaster of a series of fan-favorite games. If you need a dose of 32-bit nostalgia, or if you want to see where one of gaming’s iconic characters started you can’t go wrong here.

    The culprit behind Crash's dated feel is the passage of time. Vicarious Visions, for its part, succeeded in revitalizing Crash from an artistic perspective while preserving the charm that made him appealing when he first showed up, but years have passed since the original PlayStation was relevant, and we are well past the formative years of 3D gaming.

I had it on PS4 andAs someone who had Crash Bandicoot 1 and Warped on the Playstation 1, when the Switch version came out I had to buy it. I had it on PS4 and completed Warped, but never got around to the other 2 games. With the switch I have already completed 1 and am trying Crash 2 for the first time. The originals were 10/10 and the switch version is the same with nicer graphics and its portable!
    A must buy if you like platformers! 10/10

Even though the Switch Port isn't as powerful as the PS4 release it is still a must buy for any Switch Owner the Trilogy's Three Games are all amazing and play well Docked and Portable the N Sane Trilogy was a great choice for Switch, Now we can only hope that Spyro get's a release on Switch or Crash Joins the Battle in the Smash Ultimate.

Sane Trilogy is one of the best made ports to the Switch so far. Very good quality and enjoyable games with a few kinks of the past still lingering like the controls being a little bit slippery and trouble with depth perception. However, it does not take away from how fun and classic these games feel even in a high definition polish. Three games definitely worth $40. Expand

    I remember playing all three of these Crash games back in the 90s when I had better hair and reflexes. I bought this game on PS4 last year andI remember playing all three of these Crash games back in the 90s when I had better hair and reflexes. I bought this game on PS4 last year and was hesitant to plop another 30-40 bucks on a technically inferior Switch version. But one of the Switch's selling points is its portability and that makes one's 'definitive' version of a cross-platform the Switch version one can take anywhere.

    First, the graphics are noticeably worse than the PS4 version. No fancy hair effects on Crash, poorer shadows, and less vegetation are all easily recognized with a point of comparison. After playing for a few hours on a proper monitor though, those differences become less and less important. The resolution is a bummer however, I really wish they could have hit 1080p on docked. The frame-rate is solid and I haven't noticed any slowdown at all so far. The 30fps target isn't stellar but that's all this port had to aim for. ONE HUGE IMPROVEMENT comes with the load times. Holy cow! One of the main reasons I didn't like booting up or playing this game on PS4, was the obscene loadtimes for the games themselves and every level in and out. That hasn't been patched out as far as I know. On Switch everything loads quickly and is no longer an annoyance.

    As far as the games themselves, they are still a blast if you like more old-school platformers. I've read some reviews that pain these games as out-dated or otherwise showing their age with regards to gameplay. I think that's an absurd argument. Certainly, these games are harder than a lot of more modern games, especially certain sections of Crash 1. The mechanics are more simple but they are tight and pushed to the hilt. The games challenge relies on precision jumping in both time and space.

    I personally enjoy this style of gameplay. The levels are varied aesthetically and filled with secrets. For completionists there are plenty of very challenging activities in nearly every level.

    It's not like Switch is hurting for platformers, but, if you like them this is definitely worth looking into because with 3 whole games in the package, you're getting some serious bang for your bucks.

However I find some of the levels, especially the bridge levels of Crash 1 to be extremely hard. Lucky me, I haven't gotten to Stormy Ascent... Yet. Otherwise, the one thing I hate is that the controls are so slippery or won't input. In multiple levels, I've clicked the B button and when I go to jump and it doesn't register, I get pretty pissed off. One screw up off any platforming, your dead. Expand

    HORRIBLE!! DON'T PLAY THIS GAME ON NINTENDO SWITCH
    Why? The game has downgrade: Bad color palette(Crash looks brown instead of orange sometimes), missing textures, missing lighting (this makes Crash look completely dark many times). Yeah, it's portable but the portable mode looks like ass, it runs 480p into a 720p screen = it looks BLURRY! If you want this game, buy it for PS4 or PC, this is another bad port just like Wolfenstein 2.
