    First of all, there's the asinine boost system. As in the previous game, you must link powerslides to keep your boosts going, forcing you to keep your kart at a 45-degree angle during races. Blech.
  2. It's technically competent, but Crash NKR does not offer a gaming experience anyone would call fun. [Jan 2004, p.56]
