People think that game is the first bad one. I have never played it but that's what I heard. Apparently, these 3 Crash games are the only good ones. I don't know if it true but that is the consensus.
If I liked the bad one, maybe I should get the collection. Thanks.
I've only played the original 3 plus Crash Team Racing. I played them on PS1 and I repurchased them on PSP and played through them again. For some reason, o didn't really enjoy the trilogy this time.
I think a lot of enjoyment comes from the nostalgia. Gameplay has evolved quite a bit from 1996. What you have here is pretty much a straight port of some PS1 games with updated graphics but dated gameplay. They might even be a step backwards from that GameCube game you played. Even a mediocre 6th gen game would likely be a mind blowing 5th gen game.
...or maybe the series really did go downhill after Universal took over.
