    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.

The level design, animations, cutscenes, aesthetic, etc is all extremely accurate to the trilogy. My only criticisms with it is the loading times, which last up to 30secs every time you load a level (with Aku Aku constantly staring at you) and the hit boxes aren't always accurate; but other than that it's an incredible game!
    Overall, beautiful remaster of the original trilogy; can't recommend it any more to Crash fans or anyone who loves platformers, since it's at such a great price for 3 games. Lets hope this game does extremely well, in order for Activision to put forward a Spyro remaster.

Si puedo criticar los tiempos de carga, la inclusion de la niebla, el rango de vision bajo incluso en widescreen y las físicas que hacen que el juego sea mas difícil. Como si el juego original no fuera lo suficientemente difícil...
    Pero es muy disfrutable! Incluso en algunas cosas mejor a los originales...
    A pesar de que le doy un 9, es inferior al crash warped original. Técnicamente le daría un 8,5 pero esta mierda de pagina no deja calificar en decimal o en porcentaje...
