Sane Trilogy received “generally favorable” reviews from critics across all platforms on which it was released, according to review aggregator Metacritic.[23] Critics praised multiple aspects, such as the upgraded graphics, unifying gameplay aspects, and overall faithfulness to the originals.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Jonathon Dornbush of IGN lauded the graphics as having “the glow of a Saturday morning cartoon”, and noted the addition of time trials to the first two games as a welcome change that “offer[s] plenty of new challenges.”[33]                                                                                                                                                                                                            Andrew Reiner of Game Informer also praised the addition of time trials, along with the ability to play as Coco and the unified autosave system; additionally, the review noted the technical feat of remastering the games “from the ground up” without the use of Naughty Dog’s original source code.[29]                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Jeuxvideo called the ground-up production “[a] real performance” while also praising “the nostalgia factor” and the rerecorded music.[35]

Criticism of the game centered around aspects such as character controls and the original trilogy’s pitfalls. Justin Clark of Slant criticized the trilogy as “stultifying in [its] need for absolute precision” and stated that achievements provoked “little reward”.[36]                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Dornbush was less critical of the level design, but noted that the first game was “easily the weakest” for its limited move set,[33] while Ashley Oh of Polygon found some design choices “unforgiving and frustrating” and agreed that there was “no margin of error” in much of the platforming
