The N-Sane trilogy is a complete remake of the classic Playstation platforming trifecta, and a good one at that. Attention has been paid to details that are essential to the familiarity of the title, but there’s been plenty of refinement here too.
You are Crash Bandicoot, an anthropomorphic nightmare created by Dr Neo Cortex. The trilogy takes Crash on a journey to stop Cortex from stealing his girlfriend, stealing his sister, and then inevitably taking over the world.
Graphically, you’re in for a treat. It’s not only testament to how far video games have come in 20 years, but a real honour to the original.
Activision did us a worry with how awful the Spyro Skylanders design was, but Crash’s glow up is more than acceptable.
Grin and bare it
The first Crash game was always hard. However, while the controls in the N-Sane trilogy feel tighter and smoother, the game is still pretty unforgiving.
