A well-made remaster with beautiful modern visuals and outdated platforming rooted firmly in the past.

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.

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.

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.

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.

It's a shame what happened to Crash Although Naughty Dog moved on to bigger things, I wouldn't necessarily call all of them better. The Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy serves as a time capsule of sorts before the series was ran into the ground, and my only major regret is that I wish it had CTR as the cherry on top.

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.

With fantastic remaster visuals and the same old gameplay (in both a good and a bad way), Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy can be enjoyed by everyone, but mostly those who grew with the original games for the first PlayStation.

As far as remakes go, you can't get any better than this. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is exactly how fans envisioned it – an unadulterated celebration of a PlayStation pioneer. With such a weight on their shoulders, Vicarious Visions have pulled it off with such diligence, infused with a streak of their own creativity. Then there's Naughty Dog original  efforts, of course. Even those only acquainted with Uncharted and The Last of Us can appreciate how the studio first made its name, and the journey from Crash Bandicoot to Warped is one of continued innovation. Some two decades later, it's great to see that some things never change.

Although the Nintendo Switch version may be have lower resolution compared to other cosnoles, Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy is suitable to be played while you are anywhere by carrying the switch with you anytime, anywhere. I feel satisfied with the design of the game on the switch, it offers the same experience with the original one with some good additions.

An excellent and accurate remaster that lacks only of a couple of fix at the gameplay mechanics to truly shine.

It's a real pleasure to play through three games that defined a console, and seeing Crash on PS4 is great. He's finally home, and right where he should be.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is a fantastic remake of some of the best platformers of all time. The new visual polish looks great on PS4. Though you might get frustrated by the dated gameplay at times, powering through will show why these games were so beloved 20 years ago.
