In GameSpot's Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy review Peter Brown awarded it 6/10, saying developer Vicarious Visions "succeeded in revitalizing Crash from an artistic perspective." However, he added that "if you're experiencing Crash for the first time--or the first time in a while--it might pain you to realize that Crash's original adventures aren't as inventive or surprising as they were 20 years ago."
