Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is an upcoming platform video game compilation developed by Vicarious Visions and published by Activision for the PlayStation 4. The game is a collection of remasters of the first three titles in the Crash Bandicoot series: Crash Bandicoot, Cortex Strikes Back and Warped, which were all originally developed by Naughty Dog for the PlayStation. The game is set for release on June 30, 2017.
N. Sane Trilogy is a collection of remasters of the first three games in the Crash Bandicoot series, Crash Bandicoot, Cortex Strikes Back and Warped, which all feature the title character traversing various levels in order to stop Dr. Neo Cortex. Like in the original games, Crash uses spinning and jumping techniques to defeat enemies, smash crates, and collect items such as Wumpa Fruits, extra lives, and protective Aku Aku masks. The trilogy adds new features across all three games, including unified checkpoints, pause menus and save systems, including both manual and automatic saving, time trials, which were first introduced in Warped, and the ability to play through each game as Coco Bandicoot, Crash's sister, with the exception of certain boss battles and Crash's vehicle/animal riding levels. It also features high-definition 4K resolution and remastered audio.
So, since this was really well recieved (for better or for worst consider some reviewers), I wonder what is next. We know Spyro is getting the same treatment but will they also remaster the first Crash racing game and will they make a new game? And will other companies take note into making remasters for their old properties?
Do you think they removed the lines of dialogue from the bosses due to political correctness reasons? This is purely speculation on my part since I haven't played the games but in this day and age I can't help but be suspicious
This remake is FAR from being perfect. The trilogy has a lot of flaws and if I had to rate it I would give it a 6/10.
Very long loading times, messed up jumping physics and hitboxes, no level retry option during normal gameplay and inconsistent time requirements for the time trials.
I get what youre saying but if you put it like that then any game will ever get a 10/10 because there is no flawless game, i agree with angry jow sistem, a 10/10 means that the game is so good that for the asking price the negatives really dont make a difference, and 6/10? slight above average? i think that or youre standards are really high or your just trhow a random rating on it based on your frustration with the game on time trials.
Can someone please help I'm having trouble saving games and everytime I want to play crash bandicoot I have to start from the beginning,it says I save it when at the end of the game but nothing shows up for me to click on thanku
Im new to PS gaming ive played all my life from the Nes but on Ninty and Xbox only but ive decided to go with PS4 now...all these Sony exclusives are new to me i love platformers so im thinking of buying this game..?
Definitely not a masterpiece! Crash still jumps like he is wearing lead shoes. Makes for a huge amount of poor platforming. Always thought crashs jumping was sluggish compared to other platformers but really thought the would have made it slicker for this remaster. Game looks and sounds Amazing though!
Not perfect by any stretch of the imagination. Ive played only the first game so far and game physics and jumping feel very weird and off compared to original. Parts that should be very easy to go through are hard because jumping is bit messed up. Sometimes you jump over things and sometimes not far enough, or you simply touch the corner of the platform and slip and fall. In original the controls are tight and work perfectly. Graphics and music wise game is pretty good.. Not perfect but not bad either.. Nothing can match the Josh Mancell's original music and the original games but I think this remaster is pretty cool! Overall im just happy that Crash is back in some way. Those controls just bother me so far more than anything else.
The controls feel off crashes movement is to fast to go to a full run and he now doesn't stop he slides before he stops. The camera shift kills as it shifts when your jumping a gap and I fall to my death.
This games control is quite off. I came into this game really confident having mastered the originals movement system and suffered as a result. The jump is way too heavy, you don't jump high or far enough. It's almost as if the crouch has a cool down once you touch the floor, this makes consecutive high jumps/slide jumps very inconsistent at times. The ice physics in the originals were horrid to begin with but vicarious visions has managed to make it even worse.
These are my only complaints as of yet, I am loving the remake so far but I hope they patch some of these issues
I'm so glad that you reviews the remaster/remake and not the games.
I've seen some magazines that instead of reviewing the way the remake /remaster talk about how they didn't add content and how outdated it is. And I was like OMG, OMG! I don't want the game to be changed I want the exact same game with modern techonology, maybe if you want to add some old levels that maybe didn't get into the original games, and that's it.
Tell me how the remaster works, not the games, everyone knows them already or can read review from 20 years ago, lol. And you did exactly what I wanted, hearabout the remake features, like the autosave, the controls, load times, details and stuff.
Anyway, keep dreaming.
am I the only one worried that the crash fanbase will be ruined by cancerous kids. I mean look what they did to five nights at Freddy's and undertale. I just hope the crash name doesn't get be smudged by shitty animations and fanart.
I can only agree, this remaster is a real masterpiece (especially for me because i didn't really played the originals back in their days).
I was sure they would announce "Spyro Trilogy" at this E3 (maybe for the Playstation X 2017 ?) because Activision, owner of the IP such as for Crash Bandicoot, have seen the incredible amount of pre-orders (at least in my country but i think it's international) and it is even more asked from the community than Crash was. In any case, if they announce this "Spyro Trilogy", i would be rather happy because I never played the series (i had stoped playing platformers at the time, i was more in JRPGs) and from what i have heard but also seen, it was a great IP on the PS1 (like Crash) until other studios took the franchise in their hands.
As someone who grew up with the original Spyro Trilogy and loved it and I still have a place in my heart for it, I gotta say the games are just way too easy. I tried replaying through them again not too long ago and they're just so easy that its boring, It made me sad to realize that too since I grew up with them.I think they are perfect to introduce young and novice players to games but to anyone thats been playing games for a long time they're just too easy sadly :( also if they did a remake of the Spyro trilogy they'd have to get Stuart Copeland back for music duties or else there would be riots in the streets.
Alright you sold me on this game. I have never really played a crash game except for crash of the titans but after getting a ps2 not that long ago my love for platformers grew and seeing how this game is platformer heaven i know i have to get it. Thanks mate.
Smol Chaengster You could VERY easily play those games today, whether that be on an emulator, PSN store or just buying a real PS1 because they're very cheap, emulators are the easiest and cheapest option though.
DreamcastGuy Awesome! Anyways thanks for convincing me to go buy this game when it comes out. I love your videos, they really brighten up my day. You're one of my favorite YouTubers and because of you, I'll always keep dreaming ; )
