    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.

    Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is a nice reminiscent return to classic platforming and even more so due to the with returning my childhoodCrash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is a nice reminiscent return to classic platforming and even more so due to the with returning my childhood and my first ever played game, with frustration. With the retake on what the personality of the game is, it still thoroughly competes with today's platformers. There are some parts that will make you feel like the game is rushed like in some circumstances, just having an object that could potentially crush me being on screen would actually result in myself getting crushed. Patches are definitely needed and in some ways, the game feels more personalised in its original state. The first game doesn't capture the magic nearly as much as the second and third game. The loading screens also help with that feeling. The simplicity of this game is what also helps the game.
    All in all the game has the struggle to behold when competing with the modern game, especially if you are looking for special defining and signature features. The sole reason why this game stands out is that of its cartoon like fashion. The game needs heavy patchwork and feels like even a week delay could have polished the hell out of the game and the first game holds back the trilogy but is still a polished game in itself. The experience is good for newcomers and people that are bitten by the nostalgia bug, just go into it for the character and personality of the game or if your just looking for something to relax to aside from the difficulty spikes in the game.

    The first three Crash Bandicoot games were fun games back in the days of the first Playstation. The crazy environments and challenging levelsThe first three Crash Bandicoot games were fun games back in the days of the first Playstation. The crazy environments and challenging levels together with memorable characters make the games stand out among the Playstation's incredible library of games.

    N-Sane Trilogy helps to bring the games back and hit you just right with nostalgia. The updated and remastered graphics are amazing and help bring the games to life. The difficulty is still in these games and it can be weird playing with an analog stick since this game was used with a d-pad back in the day. But for it's price, you get 3 solid games that give it just the right modern touch to be enjoyable again

    WOW what a crappy remaster. 30fps on this old game is NOT acceptable.
