Cortex Strikes Back 7 28.00%
Crash 3 Warped 14 56.00%

Of the original 3 games (Crash Bandicoot, Cortex Strikes Back, Warped) that debuted on PS1 and came to PS4 last year and Switch/Xbone/PC just recently, which do you think is the best, and why?

Around the Network

Used to think 3.
Last year, playing them on a friend's PS4, 1.
Now, playing on Switch, probably 2.

I guess when I finish them all I'll have a solid opinion, but, it's probably looking like 2.

Crash 3.

Both 2 and 3 benefit from the remake I'd say, but the visual and graphics department are just all out in 3, thanks to the varied locations and level designs.

Still need to play 2 and 3 on the Switch version, but I doubt my opinions will change that much.

Crash Bandicoot Warped is my favorite.

To be honest, I love all three games, but Warped has something special for me.

Crash Bandicoot 3. Best levels and the special abilities after defeating the bosses make the gameplay even more amazing.

Strikes back. Warped is to easy, the first has some odd balancing on the second and third Islands to the effect of some levels being ridiculously easy and others being ridiculously hard. Crash 2 is just right and perfectly balanced all the way through, it also has the best levels and overall structure and vibe.


China Numba wan!!

Still haven't tried them.

2 is my favourite. 3 suffers from way to many poorly implemented gimmick stages. Half of the levels are gimmick stages. When it focused on pure platforming it has some of the best levels in the series.

So far, Warped is still my favorite to play. It just has so much variety and movement options to me. I used to like Crash 1 more than 2 but I'm slowly warming up to 2 now that I'm playing it properly (Never played it past the second warp room). Basically, so far I'll rate them as 3>2>1.

I think I like the first one the most after fixing the save system. Saving was horrible in the original game but just fine in N. Sane Trilogy. After that, I think I like the third game the most. The second one is good as well, but something feels a bit off to me.
