I have very fond memories of Crash 1, 2, and 3. I totally disagree with the Gamespot review score. These games are an absolute blast to play. I'm extremely happy with how true these games are to their originals. Its the same game with better graphics and thats how these remakes should always be. Im giving it a 9 because these games were never perfect, but they hit all the right notes, (animations, content, difficulty, and music). If you played Crash many years ago, you wont regret picking this up.
