Eh. Wasn't a fan of Spyro (or Crash, for that matter). It's cool that they're doing this, but I'll abstain.

never been a huge fan of Spyro, but if no games are coming out around the time it releases,then id pick it up just to pick it up. More excited for Medievil. Hopefully this ends up true though for the fans of the series

What an overwhelmingly positive thread. Filled with love. It's been recommended to me by other members a few times. I'm with you two though. It was a really solid product. Played nice, looked good enough, and ran well. I just found it pretty generic and it didn't hold my interest for long at all. Doubt that would change 2 decades later.



Chinese food for breakfast

 

The first remake I would actually buy despite already owning all the Spyro games. The problem being I think I lost Spyro 3, so I been missing it a lot.



Only played it a little so very much looking forward to this :)

Why are these titles referred to as "remasters", it's a disservice in my opinion. Every single thing is created from scratch.

Wind Waker HD is a remaster, Uncharted Collection is a remaster, Master Chief Collection is a remaster.

Crash/This is a remake.

Crash still uses the same core elements and its gameplay is for most unchanged. 

The visusl quality can vary between Remasters, meaning some will look heaps better than others however the game is still the exact same as its orignal with a new coat of paint. Strip the paint away and there is the same game.

Sweeeeet!! :D Crash Team Racing > Spyro trilogy > Crash trilogy. Therefore, they're keeping the best for last!

The Art and Graphical assets are created from scratch, making it a Remake. Although the core mechanics may seem 1:1 with the originals, they aren't. They're close, but not recycled (which is what would happen in the case of a Remaster).

So whats the difference between Crash N Sane Trilogy and Homeworld Remastered? Both look leaps and bounds better than there orignals and have minor gameplay changes yet one is clearly a Remaster.

The difference? One of them was built from the ground up and the other wasn't. Hence, one is a Remake and the other is a Remaster. It's not strictly about looks, but assets. Crash's assets were rebuilt with modern technology and not simply "touched up". So if you're arguing that Crash is a Remaster, you're factually incorrect. Beginning with sound (music), the term 'Remaster' refers to a correction of original assets for better quality. That is not the same as assets rebuilt from the ground up, which is what the Crash N.Sane Trilogy is.

Many out there still claim the game a Remaster. Mainly due to the core mechanics havnt changed. Majority of Remasters (the good ones) build alot of the visuals and sounds from the ground up and paste them over the core game. 

Crash seems to play almost identical to the original games with added check points etc. 

Conkers Live and Reloaded ill consider a Remake based on the big changes to level designs, controls, objectives, visusls, sounds. Crash still keeps alot of its core. Aside from some tweaks and extras much like Homeworld Remastered. 

Im not complaining if its a remastered or a remake i see its a bit of a confusing topic.
