  1. The racing isn't exactly the star of the show, but Crash Tag Team Racing's supplemental elements pull the whole thing together into a unique and mostly enjoyable experience.
  2. Admittedly broken down into its individual aspects Crash Tag Team Racing comes up a little short, however the overall game gels the pieces together to create an entertaining experience for young and old alike.

    The game's not too much to look at andmost of the track designs are pretty uninspired. [Dec 2005, p.120]
  4. If you can't sit down with three other friends, don't bother, but I'll tell you right now this kicks the pants out of "Mario Kart: Double Dash!!" - yes, you heard me.
  5. While it is honorable that it at least attempts to make an interesting piece of a game, with platforming and racing mixed together and a nifty clashing element thrown in, the core gameplay just isn't strong enough to really make this terribly memorable.
  6. Who would have thought that a game with parachuting dynamite monkeys and ninja penguins would be this bad?

But at the end of the day, I beat the singe-player mode and never picked it up again (even for multiplayer races). This game lacks the replay value of most racing games because the racing aspect of this game actually isn't that good. The merging with other characters while racing is neat...for a little while at least. If the game was only racing, my score would be much lower but the different aspects of it, the little humour, the slight adventure aspect of it...its worth a play. Full Review »
