Complaints About Crash Bandicoot Trilogy Being Too Difficult

first_img Upon its release in late June, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy was compared to Dark Souls by some gaming outlets. Crash Bandicoot games were always challenging, but many reviewers and consumers found the remastered title exceptionally difficult. It turns out that these complaints aren’t entirely unfounded.In an Activision blog post, Vicarious Visions’ Kevin Kelly explained how Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is different from the original games. The studio wanted a more “cohesive experience across all three games.” In order to achieve that, each title has the physics of Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped. Since that is the third game in the trilogy, it has the most updated controls. While the logic behind making all the games play the same is sound, it does make the original Crash Bandicoot harder than it used to be.“We went through rounds of internal testing, user testing, and iterations to get each game’s handling to just the right place,” said Kelly. “In the end, we ended up tuning jump differently for each game, so that the jump metrics are the same as the originals. However, there are a few subtle differences in Crash Bandicoot, chief among these being the fact that you fall more quickly upon release of the X button than you did in the original first game.”Kelly went on to say: “An increased precision is now required in the first game, which makes the gameplay experience different. Particularly if you are a new player, you may want to start with the second and third games first, and then come back to try Crash Bandicoot after you’ve had more practice. For those of you who played the originals and acquired a fair amount of muscle memory, re-learning the handling in our game may present an additional challenge you weren’t expecting. But we’re sure you up to the task.”I’ve played a little bit of the first game in this collection and can vouch for how tough it can be. But like any title, users just need to acclimate to its controls. Despite being more challenging than expected, the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is still a solid and fun experience. I highly recommend it to any PlayStation 4 user. Just… be patient with it.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
