Review: Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy on the Nintendo Switch

Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy

I received a download code for Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy for free to play and review. Opinions are my own.

I have never owned a Crash Bandicoot game and so I never played the game growing up. So I did not play each game as it came out and never experienced what it was like playing this character. However, now I can play the brand new game that has been released that not only has all three Crash Bandicoot games within it but a whole bunch of new content, too. There are new levels including one that was deemed too difficult to be added into the original game. That level is called Stormy Ascent and you can find it off a new path of N. Sanity Beach. This was left out of the original PS1 release.

More about playing the game below.

Playing the game has been quite the experience. I was unfamiliar with the gameplay but was able to pick it up fairly quickly. Crash runs, he jumps and he has a spin attack, he can also land on things to attack. Those are the basics but there are levels where Crash can use vehicles, slide and perform other feats.

Coco - Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy

With this game players can control Crash’s sister, Coco in the game. She can race through levels with her own special attacks as well. In one level she gets to ride a tiger through the great wall. It was really fun.

The Future Tense level was very challenging. I am still not able to get through it. Here is some detail about it.

Future Tense brings fresh challenges to expert Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy fans and new players alike within an epic, action-packed new level. Combining the old with the new, this brand-new level pays homage to the unreleased Waterfall level from the original Crash Bandicoot game. Players will love playing the heart-racing, high climbing level repeatedly to explore hidden areas and experience unexpected moments, including a challenging Death Route. Future Tense will be accessible via a new platform in the Warp Room of Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, and playable at any point in the game’s progression.


I did like that I could switch between all three games and not have to worry about playing through all of them in order to try a bunch of different levels. It is going to take me some time to get better at the controls and how and when to make Crash jump to avoid things like giant runaway boulders or dinosaurs!


This is a must get for any Crash Bandicoot fan. So many fun features to the game. It was totally digitally remastered including the cut scenes and I became a fan because of voice actor Jess Harnell. He’s Crash and he’s awesome! I liked how he was on the Skylanders cartoon and both Crash and Dr. Neo Cortex were included in the most recent Skylanders game. That was actually my first time playing anything related to Crash. I think that after I play more of the N. Sane Trilogy I will understand the special level in Skylanders Imaginators that was Crash Bandicoot themed. But first I have to conquer the N. Sane Trilogy!
