I took a quick look at it, think I pirated the Switch version or a xb1 demo or something - I remember not being very impressed. I got some weird furry nu-male vibes instead of the SOUL of the original games. IIRC the remasters run at 30 FPS - that was an acceptable framerate in 1997 but it's complete fucking garbage for a platformer in ~2020, especially one that's supposedly """"""HD""""""". I think you're better off just playing the originals.
I'm currently set up to play PS1 and PS2 games on original hardware on CRT, but PS1 games emulate pretty well. I use the first level of Crash 1 as my controller+input lag test, if I can get 100% boxes on the first run I know the setup is good, if I fuck up the box jumping over the chasm then I know my setup has too much lag or a controller problem. (I get 100% every time on real hardware -> CRT)
So yeah I'd get the remaster for free or cheap, but I wouldn't pay money for it. If you want to go full autism just use a gaming pc and the OpenGL hacks to render at 960p etc
