    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.

    Crash Bandicoot returns with new graphics and the classic gameplay (which is sometimes unforgiving due to the camera movement). Nintendo Switch version offers lower resolution than PS4 or Xbox One, but the game still looks great and we love the possibility to play anywhere in portable mode.

    At the fair price of $40, the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy offers three fun platforming classics that have been re-created from the ground up, and only minor adjustments have been made for the Switch. The first title suffer from its unification strategy, so it's a more frustrating experience, but Cortex Strikes Back and Warped play really well. The visual style and graphical performance on the Switch are fantastic thanks to the minor adjustments, making this a well-deserved port for the handheld's library.

    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.

    Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy is a fun collection of titles filled with nostalgia value, presented in a wonderful looking HD package. It runs well and overall is a perfectly competent platformer. If you can forgive that some aspects of these games haven’t aged well in the last 20 years, then this can be a pretty fun throwback experience.

    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.

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.

    After many years of disappointing games and being left alone in the shadows, Crash was finally back in 2017 with an incredible remaster of hisAfter many years of disappointing games and being left alone in the shadows, Crash was finally back in 2017 with an incredible remaster of his original trilogy that took the gaming world by storm in the 90s. And now, one year after his amazing comeback, the world's favorite marsupial crashes the Nintendo Switch. But, does the hybrid console manages to run the game well?

    The answer is yes. Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy is a well-made port that runs in a good resolution and a stable 30 fps, with absolutely no frame drops. Sure, some things such as the lightnings in some levels and the textures are quite toned down, but it's not a huge difference, as the game still looks beautiful on the TV and when playing on the go. The developers did a great job at porting this game to Nintendo's newest console.

    Now, speaking aside from the port's quality and such, is the remaster really that good?

    It's best to say that "good" is not enough to describe N.Sane Trilogy. This remaster keeps everything that the original Crash games had in terms of gameplay, level design, story, characters and such, but also improves on everything it has the chance to, such as the graphics, animations, and voice acting. Doing that, it not only creates a sense of familiarity and nostalgia by playing the three original Crash Bandicoot games remastered, but also gives us a feeling of "freshness", by being faithful to the original trilogy. To say it short, this is a remaster made with so much passion that will satisfy every fan of Crash Bandicoot.

    Of course, that doesn't mean N.Sane Trilogy is absolutely perfect. By being faithful to the original games, the remaster also brings back a few problems that the original trilogy had, and doesn't try to fix them. Some things such as the controls at some levels and how it can become frustrating in a few moments are still there. These are things that long-time fans of the series won't have any problem with, but new players might not be ready to face a few of those problems and the big difficult these games bring. That doesn't mean it's impossible to adapt yourself to the game if you're a newcomer, though.

    In the end, it's safe to say that Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy is one of the finest examples of how to make a remaster right, keeping everything important the original games had while tweaking everything it possibly can. This means that some common problems are brought back, but it's nothing the player cannot get used to. At the same time, the port for the Nintendo Switch is absolutely great, with no huge difference to the other versions. But, the greatest thing we all get from the remaster, is that Crash's finally back, and better than ever.

As a kid I loved playing 2 & 3, but never had the skill to be able to finish them. But the good folks over at Toys for Bob truly did revive this franchise in the best way with fantastic quality of life improvements, which made them a great game to pick up and play in small bursts (and exactly why I picked it up on Switch). This was truly a blast from the past with great remastered soundtracks, hilarious new character voice over and expressions, and the charm of an era now gone. Expand

The controls are EVEN worse than the PS4 version, Crash is the touchiest character I've used in my life via these remakes. The old games were better controlled, but at least the PS4 game looked outstanding, this; THIS looks like dog poop. The Switch version is a total waste of time and money. Expand
