Critic Reviews for Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

I didn't want the Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy to break what wasn't broken. Thankfully, Vicarious Visions clearly didn't want to either, and the studio's reverence for the original maddening yet rewarding challenges that have stood the test of time is clearly on display. On one hand, that leads to the frustrating limitations of the original Crash Bandicoot persisting 20 years later. But it also results in the incredible visual and aural overhaul and the gameplay tweaks to earlier entries, like time trials and crate counters, that Naughty Dog added later in the series. Those additions make the overall package so much more cohesive while never forgetting what made, and what still makes, so much of Naughty Dog's original trilogy a blast to play.

A well-made remaster with beautiful modern visuals and outdated platforming rooted firmly in the past.

It's gorgeous, and a clear labour of love, but the controls might drive you, err, N.Sane

No matter what you think of the original games these are an excellent trio of remasters, that will please existing fans and help to create new ones.

Whether you are running from a boulder or riding on a polar bear, these games have not lost their charm. They are a fascinating (and fun) look back at the early days of 3D platforming

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy gives three classic games a fresh coat of paint, but there's no mistaking that they're old at heart.

There's a golden glow around memories that gets brighter with age, but it also tends to distract from old frustrations. If you're ready for a quick trip — and I mean quick — down memory lane, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy doesn't disappoint. Vicarious Visions' faithfulness to the series satisfies some nostalgic cravings, but once the novelty wears off, the cracks can't help but show.

It's hard to know where to stop when talking about Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. Its visuals are dynamite, the rebuilt cutscenes stoke excitement in any Crash fan, the music is higher-quality than ever, and the little alterations Vicarious Visions made make a huge difference.
