To be honest I just wanted to get through the game to unlock shit so I blasted through it on Easy. Easy and Medium are more intune with the original but yes completely agree on Hard Mode. It's brutal! I will play through it on Hard for the trophy sometime but right now im ok on Easy/Medium.Curious, what difficulty have you been playing it on? I consider myself relatively good at the original, yet I feel playing Adventure Mode on Hard that the AI is ruthless to the point where it just feels broken - There are times I can't keep up with them even with using a power boost & Uka Mask combined!
I also find that the mechanics just feel a little off, in the original in Hot Air Skyway I'd easily be able to drift around the whirly bit at the start, yet on this version I always end up sliding to the side on my drift and the only way to counter act that is to jump, hold break and turn in mid air just to counter-act it - Which simply doesn't feel natural.
I also find I am clipping on invisible map textures A LOT. Like in the shortcut in Sewer Speedway, I could make that jump every time in the original, yet here I even get enough height but still end up crashing and falling.
I like the games content, it's bursting with modes and tasks and playin online is fun with my friend - Though Not having the ability to use Splitscreen online is a wasted opportunity in my eye. I like the Event that is currently happening and getting the points for unlocks - Though, I feel that the lack ofWumpa Coins for playing Offline is becoming a pain. Overall I like the presentation but sadly the core mechanics themselves just leave me frustrated.
You will not be disappointed. Much like the Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy, the original game is all there intact but made insanely more gorgeous. I've been going around some of the tracks to find all of the little animations (many being odes' to the past platformer games) they have included in the background. Things like in the distance on the Papu Papu's Pyramid track, you can find one of those horrible venus-fly traps acting as a teacher to a class of mini-plants (and a chicken) complete with chalk board diagram... or those native's from Crash 1 doing a dance around a cook-pot with a chicken inside... on the Crash Cove track there is lots of out-to-sea shenanigans that remind me of Coco's sea levels from Crash 3 to giggle at and much more.Now that issue 3 of the magazine is out there, I do hope to grab a copy of this game so I can race you all!
This has always been my absolute favourite racing game (though I've never been a fan of the genre in general) so I can't wait to see how they've remade it. It looks incredibly clean and aesthetically outstanding.
I'm totally down with racing. Even better if we manage to get 8 players for a full lobby which I think we may be able too.I now have this game and I think we should definitely arrange some races at some point.
When are people likely to be free?
I’m really enjoying it. Like others in this thread, the game can be very brutal at times. I've completed the main campaign on normal difficult, but I'm going to struggle doing all of the relics and CTR challenges.
And I get absolutely owned online most of the time, so I'm finding it really difficult to earn enough coins to unlock things in the pit stop!
I wondered if there were any legitimate ways to unlock Penta Penguin without cheat codes. I tried to unlock him with the codes and the game told me my trophies were now disabled and that I couldn’t gain Nitro Points anymore… I’d rather avoid that!
I also checked my characters and he wasn't there after I typed in the code, so maybe I used the wrong one.
That worked, thanks!There is no way to get Penta 'legit'. Like in the original game he is only unlockable (aswell as the White paint job and Penta sticker) via cheat code. As a throwback it is the same cheat code as in the original game! Good news is that the Penta cheat is the only cheat that won't disable trophies or rewards so it is perfectly safe to do so. So yeah if you have been disabling stuff you definitely have been using the wrong code .
The correct Penta codes are these I believe:
PS4: Hold down L1+R1 and press Down, Right, Triangle, Down, Left, Triangle, Up
XBO: Hold down RB+LB and press Down, Right, Y, Down, Left, Y, Up
Switch: Hold down L+R and press Down, Right, X, Down, Left, X, Up
