    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.

If you liked the original three Crash games then you're going to love this, as that's exactly what it is! Feels great to play with the Switch controllers (personally I preferred using a pro controller, but the joycons work well too) and the handheld mode feels incredibly natural. I spent hours playing through this as soon as it had finished downloading and just couldn't put it down - a great package of nostalgia and charm whilst being a constant blast to play. Didn't find either of the two new levels very exciting but I think they're aimed for slightly more hardcore gamers given the difficulties. Expand

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.

    So much frustration, anger and love!

    This game is a travel back to my childhood and it's as good as I remember(except for Crash 1, that game was not that good and, if you're not a completionist, you should leave it and play the other 2).

    If you spend too much time away from your house like me the Switch version is a must, if not choose where you feel more comfortable playing and have fun!

This is a game that I do recommend so you can at least experience the first three games in high definition whether for fun or nostalgia. Expand

    Crash is mash.

    I was excited to finally get a chance to play the original crash games. As someone who grew up with Nintendo, Crash was always a brand I knew, but knew very little about. Having played it now, I can see why these games are classics. They're pretty messy though, at least in this port of this remaster.

    Visually, the games look pretty good, though some of the models are kind of nasty. There's a lot of good looking levels and bad looking levels just based on color palette or lighting. I think the way they remade the main characters looks great though, and the music is classic goodness.

    The controls never stopped feeling slippery for me. Ultimately that's not a huge problem because most of the stages are generous with their platform size and jump distances, but occasionally the game expects precision and expertise on a control system that doesn't feel quite right. There've already been analyses done online showing the difference in Crash's hitbox that causes him to slide off ledges more often than in the original, and while I don't have the experience with the series to give any input on that, I can say that would explain a lot of my issues with the game. I actually kind of like that the first batch of 3D platformers were working with much less precise design to accommodate the freedom of movement, and so when Crash is suddenly supposed to jump across a massive gap using the specific momentum from jumping off the far end of an enemy's hit-box, it almost seems like a joke. Also all the driving and other weird stages in Crash 3 did nothing for me. It felt like variety for variety's sake, and the new mechanics weren't exactly fun.

    I get why people would really love this game, especially if it's something they've been waiting for since the PS1. I like the game. I like Crash as a character and I think by building off of this remake, the team behind the franchise could develop a whole new golden era of that infernal Bandicoot. This game however could've benefitted from either sticking closer to the original or working to improve more of the original's design. As it is, it's just a bit of a mash.

    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.
