    Crash once again shows why it is one of the best platformers and a cult classic, now for PC, Xbox and Switch users to enjoy in it.

    Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy does a great job on PC, delivering three completely remade games with a classic feel and great visuals, up to 4K and 60 frames per second.

    A faithful remake of the original trilogy, seen for the first time on PCs. Original late 90’s gameplay in a modern and aesthetically pleasing realization, with welcome additions like the timed challenges for all three titles. A remake done right and the best version of the game across all platforms.

    A well-made nostalgia-trip with all the strengths and weaknesses of the original games.

    It’s a great romp through nostalgia and an excellent example of what proper remakes should be. The PC version is king and that’s the version you should buy.

    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.

    A well-made remaster with beautiful modern visuals and outdated platforming rooted firmly in the past.

    It's a perfect remaster, nothing was ruined, they added a little to the presentation, everything looks good.

Hundred hours of game on Sonya, after on the emulator, and now in the incentive. Crash Bandicoot provided me with the nearest, excellent gaming future.Updated and beautiful graphics, cool soundtrack, small corrections of the gameplay and a storm of emotions.In technical terms, everything is fine. Optimization of norms,
    although I was afraid that my old man would not pull it.But there are minor problems: at the first start the window mode in high resolution, which immediately alerted me, alt + enter fixed the situation. The overlay of the stimulus does not open. And when folding the game, the mouse refuses to work in the game. But it's more of my personal troubles.What kind of bugs,
    for a few levels passed, it was not noticed, but if I supplement the review, although I doubt, about something critical, the remake is done qualitatively and conscientiously.The only my game bought in the incentive at the full price, and not at a discount, and not a bit I do not regret.Crash Bandicoot gave a flurry of emotions, this game is beyond the age.

I gave it a 9/10 solely because the mechanics aren't perfected yet evenThis remake of a classic game is nearly flawless from the original. I gave it a 9/10 solely because the mechanics aren't perfected yet even compared to the originals, its most noticeable when crash is on the ice and you are trying to slide and then do a quick jump right after, its not a fluid movement. It should be a somewhat quick fix and could be taken care of in a future update if those chose to do so, then I'll easily give it a 10/10. I'm really looking forward for the PC mods that will inevitably come out! Which will be the definitive factor whether this game stays around in popularity. ALSO IT SHOULD BE OBVIOUS, THIS GAME NEEDS A LEVEL BUILDER, THEN IT WOULD DESERVE A 11/10 Expand

And itThis is perhaps one of the greatest remasters/remakes of all time. Every sound, texture and feel of the game is completely redone. And it still has the same good feel of when I played it nearly 17 years ago. I dont know where to even begin, The game is a treasure for old school gamers and the nostalgia feeling is incredibly strong here. I legit stopped throughout the game in several spots just to admire the beautiful remade graphics and the new character models to compare them to the original. This game is a 9/10 any day, The only reason I wont give it a 10/10 is because the game has some small technical limitations such as framerate being locked below 60 and V-sync issues, But I suppose these will be fixed, But they are minor bugs and dont affect playing the game much. (you will see screen tearing).

    Pros:

    - Completely re-hauled graphics on everything
    - Beautiful re-done musical score
    - Controls feel better than the original
    - Can be upscaled to 4K and beyond
    - Runs smooth on mid range hardware (GTX 970)
    - Activision didn't screw it up
    - No lootboxes or microtransactions of any kind

    Cons:

    - Has some small graphic issues with V-sync and framerate locks
    - Motion blur looks terrible (Turn it off in the settings)

It's literally the same game as in the 1990s, except modern graphics. There is nothing new. The mechanics and gameplay are very simplistic and archaic for modern standards. If you played the original games you will get bored quickly because you have already seen everything. If by some chance you have never played the originals, you will probably be put off by the archaicness and simplicity. Expand
