  1. An especially well constructed title, with plenty of modes of play to satisfy all but the most insane.

    Sharp visuals, solid handling, and a rollicking soundtrack are joined by some slightly inventive play mechanics.
  3. Good graphics, sound and spot-on control makes this game perfect for racing fans on any ilk. [Fall 2003, p.43]
  4. The characters aren't nearly as popular as those in Nintendo's game, but the deeper gameplay makes up for that to an extent.
  5. 78
    It's a real shame about the slowdown in Crash Nitro Kart for the Game Boy Advance. Without these patches of sluggish action, the game would be a close contender for best kart racer on the handheld.
  6. Although Crash Nitro Kart doesn't bring anything new to the kart-racing genre, it's a fast and amusing play that Crash Bandicoot fans will enjoy. [Feb 2004, p.152]
