Crash Bandicoot 1 N-Sane Trilogy- Nintendo Switch Review

Crash Bandicoot is a character I am familiar with, but have never completed a single game of. When you watch a fair amount of video game reviews on YouTube like I do then, you hear about him anytime the PS1 is brought up. Of course when the N-Sane Trilogy came out, everyone was talking about him then too and now, there is a Crash Bandicoot 4 since these titles did so well. Since I don't own any console of the PS family and a Switch, we'll be reviewing the Switch version.


Crash Bandicoot is a failed experiment by Neo Cortex. When Crash escapes from the lab, he finds out his girlfriend is on the list to be experimented on next. Crash then travels across the Wumpa Islands to rescue his girlfriend and stop Neo Cortex, with help from a Tiki god named Aku-Aku.


Crash Bandicoot is one of the simplest gameplay you can use the arrow buttons or left joy stick to move then B to Jump and Y to spin. Stages can be slideways so Crash moves left to right but many stages are a back view of Crash, which can make it difficult to see where you are jumping. There are also some boss stages in arenas, but the controls stay the same.


This was one of the hardest games(for me) to finish. I had to farm many lives in the second half of the game to get anywhere as the levels are so long and the default is only 3 lives. I didn't get every box my only goal was to get to the last boss fight and win the game. When I finally defeated Cortex, I was totally relieved. This feeling made the fight worthwhile. If you are more of a casual gamer like me, you may find this game difficult, but it is satisfying to get to the end.
