On Saturday, June 29, YouTube channel DigitalFoundry rolled out a video footage that encompasses the past events of the '#Crash Bandicoot' series and also compares the animation of the original with the 'N. #Sane Trilogy' remake.

What does the new video reveal?

The 19 minutes 35 seconds long video explores the visual differences between Naughty Dog's hit video game franchise that centered on titular character, Crash Bandicoot and the recently released remakes of all three titles of the 'Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy' including the original series,' 'Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back,' and 'Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped.'

It also matches up the auditory of the original and the remake while throwing more light on some interesting frame rate data that suggests 'N.

Sane Trilogy' runs at 30fps (frames per second) even on PlayStation 4 Pro. The video also includes loading time tests. Towards the end, the video analyzes the PlayStation 4 and #Playstation 4 Pro versions of the title.

What to expect?

It's worth noting that the developer of the Crash series, Naughty Dog was not even taking part in the making of the remaster. The rights to the popular series have now gone to Publisher Activision, who, in collaboration with developer Vicarious Visions has done a bang-up job as far as the series is concerned.

The new game retains its nostalgic charm, keeping the original dialogue, style and music intact. However, Polygon's Ashley Oh believes 'Crash Bandicoot' is not spared from flaws.

In her latest report, she pointed out nostalgia is not one of the key elements that make a game good as it does not make up for the limited design choices the game has to offer.

Among the most noteworthy changes are updated graphics that recreate noticeable settings. Furthermore, 'N. Sane Trilogy' introduces a slew of minor adjustments to the series.

For instance, Auto-saving ability helps the title to meet some contemporary expectations; however, these adjustments aren't sufficient. Apparently, the remaster fails to remain true to the gameplay of the originals and it is a different, unharmonious impression playing an HD (high definition) title while still coping with the real snares of poor design and camera angles.

As if that weren't enough, the remastering brings in its own complications. While the game developer has left no stone unturned in the bid to enhance various worlds of 'Crash Bandicoot,' the intricate rendering could still be quite confusing.
