With their tweaked jumping mechanics and refusal to hold any hands, Vicarious Visions have made the N. Sane Trilogy just as brutally hard as Naughty Dog’s original version, if not more so. Get ready to rage all over again.
Crash Bandicoot (PS4, PlayStation) was full of secrets back in the late 90’s and many of those references, easter eggs, and hidden levels have carried over to the new collection.
Game Informer’s Andrew Reiner, Kyle Hilliard, and Joe Juba play through a lesser-known Crash Bandicoot title, and Juba gets pushed to the limit with a special edition of Stress Test. Meanwhile, the three Ben Reeves finally arrive back at the office, but everything may not be as it seems.
We compare the graphics of Crash Bandicoot 3 Warped (1998) to Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Remake played on PS4 Pro. The team from Vicarious Visions remade the game from scratch, the only thing they kept was the original level design. The PS4 Pro version runs with native 1440p and 30 fps, the PS4 version runs with 1080p30. For this video, we used the PS3 digital download version of Crash Bandicoot 1 – it emulates a PS1 environment without altering the game – much easier to capture for me.
The Intro scene has been shortened on the PS4 Pro side, because the old intro was shorter.
