Everyone’s favorite bandicoot is back! And what’s more, he’s on PC, at long last. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy features the dusky marsupial’s original three outings from the PS1, painstakingly remastered for modern gamers. It’s quite the treat for older gamers, but even if you never played the originals, it looks and sounds as good as its competitors.
Fortunately, it plays even better than the original PlayStation games. Controls are more responsive, environments are brighter (i.e., easier to stay alive in) and most importantly, the first Crash Bandicoot lets you save between any level. Just in case you forget, though, each game has an autosave feature as well. The challenge hasn’t changed at all. Without a doubt, the first game in the trilogy presents the greatest challenge and will truly test your platforming abilities.
The other two are more forgiving, and while they’re still no cakewalk, they vary the gameplay in numerous ways, with extra relic challenges, a much more diverse set of levels, motorcycle races, chases on top of China’s Great Wall, fleeing from a hungry polar bear.. it’s a wild ride. Coco finally gets the spotlight too, since you can choose her over Crash from the very beginning; they both play the same, but it’s fun to switch it up every now and again anyway.
And that's that. Whether you go for RPGs, multiplayer, or puzzle solving, there's something here for everyone.
