OUT NOW / PS4 DI­REC­TOR Dan Tan­guay CAST Jess Har­nell, Lex Lang

CRASH BANDI­COOT DOESN’T get nearly the credit it de­serves — a pi­o­neer of 3D gam­ing, it pushed the orig­i­nal Plays­ta­tion to its lim­its. But that was 21 years ago — time for a spruce-up. This HD re­make col­lects the first three games to­gether and adds new fea­tures. The time tri­als in­tro­duced in the third ti­tle Warped? They’re now in all three games. De­spite its age, the game­play still holds up, with a mix of level types that sees Crash mov­ing away from you, to­wards you, or side-to-side like a 2D plat­former. and it’s still as maddening as ever (just try get­ting through the na­tive Fortress stage with­out scream­ing in frus­tra­tion), with that rare qual­ity that draws you back in for one more level or to try to col­lect ev­ery sin­gle box. now, isn’t it time for a Crash Team Rac­ing re­make?
