My head says it’ll score low/mid 80s but my heart is hoping for 90+.

Oh, the review thread is today? That should be fun. And by fun I mean it's going to Crash N'Burn. The thread that is, not the game itself.

Anybody have late shipping times from amazon? I had Juy 4th and once I canceled and re-rodered, I got July 11th. Asked them if the game is backordered, but got a weird reply from customer service.

I don't know how you review a remaster* tbh. Either you review it in terms of its own goals (which is to faithfully recreate the original games, and this can only be reviewed positively under that metric), or you review it the same as you review any other release (in which case it's undeniably "stuck in the past" but how useful would that comment be to anyone?).


*I know it's technically a remake, but it's clearly been made with the goal of replicating the originals rather than reinventing them.

Nintendo loyalist here. Never played a Crash game but I am going to try this out. I absolutely loved Ratchet and Clank (2016). Although Ratchet and Crash play differently, I know I am open to other platformers that aren't Mario. Pretty excited for it.

Amazon I'm paying for your Prime service! I expect it to arrive on release day!

You guys should definitely try contacting Amazon CS directly, just in case they can still get it to you today or tomorrow. If you contact them about the promised release day delivery they may be able to fix the situation for you, I've heard of people having some luck with this in the past at times so it's worth a shot.

I feel like reviews with be rather contrasting on this. The camp that feel it's achieved what they set out to do, and the camp that feel the whole idea is outdated regardless.

1,2,3 - I started with 2, 3 is my favourite but I feel this is the way they were developed and therefore the right way to go about it. Plus I'm saving my best 'til last!

Will play through Warped over the weekend.. quite nostalgic, it was the game I got with my PlayStation back in the day. Hope it holds up.

I replayed Crash 2 last year and really enjoyed it.

Had expected as much. I saw one where the difference between gold and platinum was only 2 or 3 seconds, so it’s going to be a challenge for sure.

I play Crash 2 and 3 quite often. Both of them hold up very well. Crash 1, not so much.

Playing in order. 1, 2, 3.

Yeah 1's the worst and hardest and 2's the best so it's kind of uneven, but it's the way Dog intended. And I know they've improved 1, but it's still going to feel crappy to go back to if I replay the other titles first.

I think one issue is that I didn't have release-date delivery as an option at checkout, even though I've NEVER had an issue with it before. I know for the longest time I couldn't pre-order the physical edition, and when I finally did, it was on 6/26, but I would think that's plenty of notice, considering most folks' copies were shipped 1 or 2 days after. I might consider giving it one more shot today, but so far Amazon doesn't seem to be in the wrong.

I'll be curious to see how the reviews line up against something like Yooka Laylee (where a lot of the negative response circled around outdated mechanics)

I only wait for the reviews to find out whether they've broken something. It's not like I need to be convinced of the games themselves.

I'll be playing them in order, but ya it was the same for me as a kid. I got Crash 2 first, then 3, and many years later I finally played the first one when I got my PS3 as a PS1 classic.

It's sort of different for this, I'd say. Yooka Laylee was trying to emulate a game of that era, warts and all, while Crash is trying to recreate games from that era, whilst refining them into a more consistent experience.
