"Yowza, Crash Bandicoot is harder than I remember" is something that many PlayStation 4 users have been saying over the last few weeks. Since the launch of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, people have been investigating the claim that the remade version of the first Crash Bandicoot title is actually more difficult than the original game. As it turns out, you're not just going insane if you happen to think this is the case -- the platforming really is that little bit tougher.

In a new post on Activision's official blog, editorial manager Kevin Kelly sheds some light on the whole debate. "An increased precision is now required in the first game, which makes the gameplay experience different," Kelly writes. "Particularly if you are a new player, you may want to start with the second and third games first, and then come back to try Crash Bandicoot after you’ve had more practice. For those of you who played the originals and acquired a fair amount of muscle memory, re-learning the handling in our game may present an additional challenge you weren’t expecting. But we’re sure you up to the task."

To be fair, we've always thought the first Crash was without a doubt the most difficult one anyway, but we suppose that it's hard for a slightly different reason on PS4. What do you make of this? Have you had a tough time with the first game? Think before you jump into the comments section below.
