Crash isn't hard. It's cheap like Flappy Bird.

Flappy Bird? Really? That's a fair comparison? You make Crash sound like the most boring franchise ever conceived.

..... the Crash games sometimes got lazy and recoursed to just throwing more enemies at you rather than consistently designing their stages themselves in a way that's increasingly challenging and smart.

I was referring to it's difficulty being cheap and you seem to agree. As a game I'd obviously put it higher than Flappy Bird. Not as high as Temple Run though.

Don't Play Stationary 4 ever. Switch!

Honestly Crash is pretty easy, only few levels actually present some challenge. DKC franchise is much more harder than that, and that is excluding all the bonuses stages, which I would consider in the hard category.

Now to think about it, the hardest part of Crash was the really bad controls for the first one, which I get would be annoying, since it really isn't on you. 

I think a little differently, the SNES DKC games all seem very easy but Returns and TF seem harder than Crash to me. I think it's a matter of preference and time dedicated to each one though, I'd definitely put Crash in the category of challenging platformer along side Mario, DK, Rocket Knight, Sonic, Wario, Yoshi, Clockwork Knight and many more old platformers. None of them are very hard for the most part, but compared to much easier games that hardly even allow failure they definitely need some practice and will require a player to cope with failures before they learn how to progress. Not that I'm knocking easier games like Spyro, Banjo, Ratchet, Uncharted etc but they are played very differently.

Hmm, I might be unique person, besides Crash 1 annoying/cheap deaths (which I don't know if I should say bad controls or something else), the franchise was pretty straight forward easy for me, namely 3 (which I have 100%). I have yet to replay 2 since 20 years ago,

I think I might just be in the minority, since I do find crash pretty easy or maybe I just do worse in 2D platformers, namely when it comes to light jumps vs long jumps.

I skipped it because I played the games as a kid and remember the controls being absolutely horrible, at least in my opinion. Have they fixed the controls or are they still the same?



I played the original trilogy on PS1 and bought them again digitally on PSP (PSOne Classics). They were good games. Then, I bought the trilogy and for whatever reason didn't enjoy them very much. It's like the new coat of paint didn't "jive" with the old school mechanics or something. I barely played them.

I will say this though. While the original was challenging, it wasn't Rayman hard. It's not Cuphead hard. It's not Super Meat Boy hard. It's not old school Nintendo hard. It's just a nice trip down memory lane for those who liked them back then. Hope the Switch/XBO crowd enjoy it but it didn't do it for me.
