This is a high level nostalgia! For those who have been playing for more than 30 years and remember when these games came and how groundbreaking they were at the time it started, this remake on these three games is quite phenomenal!
All three games start quite easily but the difficulty increases quite quickly as both enemies and band designs require more and more of the player! Nothing "hold your hand" without here you can play yourself and learn how to master the different tracks just as it should be!
These games are, as I said, definitely not super easy and not suitable for all who you can see in some reviews here, some who do not have the energy to learn to master a game and instead blame the controls, enemies, checkpoints, etc. and that everything is the game's fault it's never the one who plays. We who celebrated these games when they came know that they are not as easy to handle as the game of the day is often and requires some extra of the player! The game is also nothing for the smallest as it simply gets too hard quite fast.
It's all about jumping / spinning boxes and collecting diamonds, some easy to find others very (very!) Difficult. In the games you run inward (in the screen) and sometimes even outwards (to yourself) and this makes these games very unique to standard platform games where you only rush laterally, regular sideways are also plenty so there will be a lot of variety.
In the first two games the band design is quite similar, but in the triangle there are completely different tracks (you fly airplanes, go jet skiing, swim in water, etc.) and Crash learns more and more different jumps, etc. The longer you play, which makes it a little different than the first two.
The game is a remake (see video online how the original looks and what a huge climb that has taken place) that is faithful to the original, as they follow them in a purely spell-free way with heavily updated graphics!
The graphics on the Ps4 Pro are awesome if you drive with 4k and HDR (** read more about HDR at the bottom). On the original Ps4, the graphics are a bit worse, of course, but still really nice!
A little extra story about "Crash" and "Naughty Dog" below:
These three games came on the Playstation one (1996-1998) and the "Crash Bandicoot" became Sony's mascot just as "Super Mario" is for Nintendo.
From the developers "Naughty Dog" who made the best game of all time, "The Last of Us" and the cannon "Uncharted" mm. Then here comes a remake (completely redone from the ground but new graphics) made by "Vicarious Visions" on the first three "Crash Bandicoot" games. These games that came 20 years ago, when "Super Mario" and other platform games were still in 2D, "Naughty Dog" thought to try something new and do platfomsspel in 3D instead! The result is some of the best platform games made!

** What does HDR mean and why is it so good?
The simple explanation is "better pixels instead of more pixels" where HDR offers enhanced contrast range with much better detail in dark / light scenes, and enhanced color management with more shades and depths in the image. The idea is simply to make the image more realistic and restore how we see people in reality where, for example, a dazzled sun will give the same effect as when we look through the window.
