So I just got a probably impossible time on bear down putting me in first place on the leaderboards. The cheevos and boards don't account for pity checkpoints when checking for the time trials, I just tested it out and for sure it put my time on the leaderboards, so my time (the top one) on Bear Down is illegitimate. This can potentially take away from the challenge of the cheevos and legitimatcy of the leaderboards if pity checkpoints are spawned later in the level. I noticed this because the timer stayed even though I had died on an attempt, then I tested it afterwards.
Primofaro 16 Dec 2023 14:12
Okay, so after some checking, it doesn't work on the cheevos, just the leaderboards time.

people that suffer with the darkness level just put a video side with the emulator and use the video was your eyes. You aren't cheating.. you are thinking outside of the metal crate :D

Mastered! A mostly fun set. The all boxes deathless was only annoying on the bear levels or Air crash. The fire fly achievement was bad because it was mostly trial and error rather than skill but 2 bad achievements isn't a deal breaker. Thanks very much for the set. :)

I feared that the "break every box without dying" achievements wouldn't trigger if you already collected the crate gem, but that's not the case, thankfully. You can retry as many times as you want.

Mastered. The firefly achievements were pretty rough and requires level memorization. Going through the dark is easier in N.Sane due to the natural lighting. Not the case here with the og, for obvious reasons. Doable, but tedious. Good set.

Mastered! The dark levels were a bit rough, but outside of a couple weird levels, the speed times were pretty easy. Love me some Crash.

Mastered.
A good set of achievements, I especially liked achievements without fireflies.

Mastered. So, my only complain about this set are the achievements where you're not allowed to touch the fireflies and beat the levels without using them: what's the point of these? They're not even challenging, they're just straight up annoying and pointless.

No Fireflies Achievement is nuts. Not Fun.

An otherwise great set that gets marred by some profoundly bad achievements (both no fireflies, Totally Bear time trial).

Dominado!

Continuando essa série que marcou minha infância o meu favorito da trilogia.
Nesse segundo jogo é perceptível uma grande melhora na jogabilidade, menos bugs que o primeiro e o principal que torna o jogo mais facilitado/melhorado é o fator de impulsão ao saltar em uma caixa, por mais tímido que seja o salto aqui você sobe muito, coisa que no primeiro voce tinha que ficar contando os saltos e sempre pressionar o X.

Que venham o crash 3 e o CTR!

Mastered! First game I ever played, still one of the best. But I never want to see a firefly ever again

#M165 This one is my favorite out of all the Crash games! Don't be afraid of the relic times, some of those relics I would get 30 secs or so under the set time it required.

I personally liked this set a lot, I feel as if there needs to be a revision in the future. Sure you can add more challenging achievements but I am really talking about the causal players. If you are not that great at this game and you are "only trying to beat the game" you would legit only get 6 achievements. I personally felt like there needed to be achievements:
-Getting all the crystals
-Getting death route gems
-Get to the secret hub imo is a big deal
-You cam throw some extra live achievements that are more hidden

I personally liked the set a lot because it felt more tough with the relics and deathless gems, but if you sprinkle more causal achievements I think it would help balance this set!

Totally Bear time trial not as bad as I thought. Even the no fireflies run was fun in the end. Mastered!
